Raiders add veteran fullback

The Raiders concluded a busy day Tuesday by signing veteran fullback Owen Schmitt.
Schmitt, 27, spent the past two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles after a two-year stint with the Seattle Seahawks. He appeared in 61 games during his first four NFL seasons.
Schmitt, 6-feet-2 and 245 pounds, is a punishing blocker, especially in the run game. The Raiders currently have Marcel Reece and Manase Tonga at fullback on their roster.
However, it’s conceivable that Schmitt could force out Tonga at some point, given he has more experience.

    I don’t like Kelly’s attitude, saying “I don’t want to play nose … but I’ll do it as long as they are paying me”

    sounds like a check casher to me. doesn’t sound like a guy who will lose any sleep if a team runs for 150+ against us.

    I agree

    Have to agree with this. He mentions money first and not the success of the team. Great point, RR.

  • I agree with RR. TK doesn’t want to play NT.
