(* We are awaiting official word from the Oakland raiders, but my sources tell me that Mike Brisiel has officially been signed by the Oakland Raiders)
Now, that didn't take long. Minutes after announcing the release of Kamerion Wimbley, the Oakland Raiders announced the addition of Zone Blocker and Tough guy Extraordinaire, Mike Brisiel, formerly of the Houston Texans. (Interestingly, Brisiel also has experience as a Center)
This should come as no surprise, as BOTH Greg Knapp and new O-Line Coach Frank Pollack coached Mike Brisiel on the Houston Texans.
What may come as a surprise is that the Raiders lost some defense, which they are very thin at and added some offense. then again, from all accounts, Brisiel is a vey tough and high quality starter that will help the line transition to a zone blocking scheme.
Next on the Raider Radar seems to be Rams CB, Ron Bartell. There is also a possibility that Tracy Porter could be in Silver and Black.
