Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham is headed out to Oakland to visit with the Raiders on Tuesday, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Previous reports suggested that the Raiders had hoped a deal would be in place by Tuesday's launch of free agency, but movement has been slow. Gresham, a former first-rounder from the 2010 NFL draft, told SiriusXM Radio last week that his heart was in Cincinnati. Coaches have generally been cool on continuing their marriage with Gresham.

According to Vic Tafur with the San Francisco Chronicle, the Raiders are expecting to sign Gresham at some point this afternoon.

According to multiple reports, the Cleveland Browns have also expressed interest in Gresham. According to Yahoo! Sports, the Browns are still interested in bringing Jordan Cameron back, but the Oakland Raiders, Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks have also expressed interest -- based on the trade sending Jimmy Graham to Seattle, they're probably not interested.
