What’s up RaiderNation? In case you haven’t already heard, the Raiders recently signed a Free Agent Tight End, the one position they seem to be most thin at. The Raiders announced yesterday that they have signed Tory Humphrey, who has experience with both Reggie McKinzie in Green Bay, and Dennis Allen in New Orleans.
Tory went undrafted in the 2005 draft but was picked up by the Colts as a UDFA. He was later cut and caught on with the Packers in 2006. He spent 3 years with the Packers (although was on IR one year with a broken arm). He played in 16 games with Green Bay and had 11 receptions for 162 yards.
After leaving Green Bay, he signed with New Orleans in 2009, and was cut at the end of the season last year. He had only 2 receptions while in New Orleans for a total of 19 yards.
As I mentioned previously, the Oakland Raiders are thin at TE so the move is most likely to add depth at a position that needed it. Still, you never know when a player who hasn’t exactly tore it up elsewhere, meshes with the new system and turns out to be an all-pro (remember Rich Gannon anyone?).
Well RaiderNation, that’s it for this week. Remember you can email us if you have anything you would like us to write about. We’ll make sure to mention you in the article. Take care!!
Peace out RaiderNation!!
