Eugene and Boller Signed

What would a day of contract announcements be without two more?

Kyle Boller got a slight bump in pay to $1.25 million and will be the primary backup to Jason Campbell.

Hiram Eugene was signed for four years and will make $2 million in 2011, $2.25 in 2012, $2.75 in 2013 and $3.25 in 2014.

Eugene will be paid like a fringe starter and be the primary insurance against losing Michael Huff. Stevie Brown could also be a factor.

The Raiders have now signed or tagged:

Michael Bennett
Daniel Loper
Nick Miller
Rock Cartwright
Stanford Routt
John Henderson
Richard Seymour
Kamerion Wimbley
Samson Satele
Michael Bush
Zach Miller
Hiram Eugene
Kyle Boller

  • Gangs would co-opt the #Raiders apparel in Los Angeles. They should stay in Oakland where there are no gangs. #nflownerlogic

  • Puzzled at what is happening with Curtis Lofton. $3+ million guaranteed for a part-time linebacker is a lot. Wasn't very effective either.
