Veteran back Michael Pittman is also drawing interest from the Raiders according to David White @bydavidwhite (For you twitter users). On the heels of the news that Lorenzo Neal could be brought in, this isn’t a surprise. It appears the Raiders are seriously considering every available veteran Fullback. Pittman comes with a history of problems, but knows the scheme and would be a capable weapon out of the backfield. Neal is more of a bulldozer than a receiving FB.
Don’t be surprised if the Raiders bring in both the veteran backs. Fullbacks don’t typically cost much to sign and we would have both in case O’Neal isn’t healthy. If O’Neal is healthy, we can easily keep the better of the two and cut the other.
