Raiders tap Ivy League for new quarterback

The Raiders have signed undrafted free-agent quarterback Kyle Newhall-Caballero, the team announced Tuesday. Newhall-Caballero was a two-time All-Ivy League selection during his collegiate career at Brown.

The 6-foot-3, 214-pound Newhall-Caballero was named second-team All-Ivy League as a redshirt senior after completing 226-of-369 pass attempts for 2,356 yards and 18 touchdowns last year.

As a junior, Newhall-Caballero garnered first-team All-Ivy League honors after an outstanding season. He completed 259-of-413 pass attempts for 2,709 yards and 18 touchdowns, and ranked second in the nation with 25.9 completions per game.

When the team released Rhett Bomar last week, head coach Dennis Allen said that the Raiders would be bringing in a camp arm. Teams typically carry four quarterbacks in offseason practices and training camps.

Dennis Allen had this to say about Newhall-Caballero:

"I don't think we bring in anyone that's just for charity. We bring in guys that we think have a chance to compete and have a chance to be decent football players. And that's what I think about him. That was the plan all along, to bring in a 4th quarterback. We wanted to bring 4 to camp, to make sure we did have 4 arms and I think Kyle will do a nice job there.

"I think he's smart, he's athletic and he's got a strong arm."
