Oakland Raiders to bring in OG Mike Brisiel

New, comments

It looks like the cuts today were done with a purpose. No sooner was Cooper Carlisle shown the door than Mike Brisiel was walking down the silver and black carpet.

Brisiel isn't a household name, like some of the Houston Texan O-Linemen that were cut, but, he has worked under Frank Pollack and Greg Knapp. Don't be surprised if this is one of the "Football-Player" types that Reggie has been looking for.

In fact, his Pro Football Reference page looks like he's related to Jimmy Hoffa. Does he exist?

At least we know that he has made one block in his NFL Career:

Brisiel was a key factor in the final offensive play of the Houston Texans' 29-28 comeback victory over the Miami Dolphins at Reliant Stadium. While the wide receivers pulled defensive attention towards the sidelines on the Texans' last-ditch 4th-and-2 play, Brisiel blocked the one defensive lineman who had a chance to tackle quarterback Matt Schaub as he ran the ball in from 3 yards out for the decisive score

I really don't care, just as long as he can block someone and the new coaches have faith in him, I'll be okay with this.
