Greg Ellis could be the most recent veteran leader to be added to a youthful Raiders roster, according to AOL’s NFL Fanhouse.
UPDATE: The word I’m getting is the Raiders have been working diligently to bring Ellis aboard and it appears likely he’ll be brought aboard this week and be on hand for this week’s OTA.
Ellis is a respected NFL veteran who fits in with the signings of Jeff Garcia and Lorenzo Neal, a veteran who hopefully not only has something left to offer as a pass rusher but as a leader in a unit which could use that type of presence.
It remains to be seen whether Ellis has anything left or is another Greg Spires, who came to the Raiders in similar circumstances last season but failed to make the 53-man roster.
The Raiders have not confirmed this signing. They have their final OTA starting Tuesday, with media availability on Wednesday.
