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.

    What happened to Eddie Murphy? He used to be so funny. RAW was great.
    Um fufu the Bush Biotch wants Half!!
    ****************
    Eddie Murphy Delirious was MUCH funnier than Raw in my opinion. Check it out if you haven’t seen it.

    Yes, Delirious ws the red suit and Raw was purple. There were a few funny moments in Raw, but in Delirious, he was more Raw…still one of my funniest of all time videos!

    Quarterback Carson Palmer said both sides won when the Cincinnati Bengals traded him to the Oakland Raiders last season.

    PalmerNot sure whether we should file this under “What did you really expect him to say” or “Players are sometimes delusional about their own situation.” Palmer made this comment when asked if he needed to patch things up with his former team.

    “It was time to move on and it was time for them to move on,” Palmer said Monday on the Dan Patrick Show, “and they’re in a better place and I’m definitely in a better place.”

    Palmer added, “I think in the years to come both organizations will look back and say this thing was the best thing to happen.”

    It’s fair to say that Palmer’s time with the Bengals had run its course. But it’s inaccurate to say both organizations are happy with the results, at least based on last season.

    The Bengals went to the playoffs with new quarterback Andy Dalton and received two additional draft picks (including cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick in the first round this year) in the deal with Oakland. Palmer ended up going 4-5 as the Raiders’ starter and lost the head coach (Hue Jackson) who spearheaded the move to get him to Oakland. The Bengals even ended up with Jackson as an assistant. Not sure how Palmer is counting, but this was a win-win-win for Cincinnati.

    For Palmer to justify Oakland giving up a first-round pick in 2012 and a second-rounder in 2013, he has to do more than lead the Raiders to the playoffs. He has to win postseason games and a good number of them. Some might say Palmer would have to guide Oakland to the Super Bowl to validate what the Raiders gave up for him.
