The Raiders have been in need of adding another tight end this offseason. Now it appears they have done just that as they have agreed to terms with free agent tight end Tory Humphrey, per his agent.

The 6-2, 257 pound tight end is a six-year NFL vet with whom both Reggie McKenzie and head coach Dennis Allen are very familiar. Raider fans may remember him from his third quarter touchdown in the their preseason matchup in Oakland last year.

The Colts signed Humphrey as an undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan in 2005 released him and he signed by the Packers. He was one of the many prizes McKenzie and the Packers found in undrafted free agency. He played his first three seasons for the Packers. His first two seasons he didn't record a single offensive statistic, playing in eight contests.

His third season in Green Bay, he played in all 16 games and started seven with 11 receptions for 162 yards. That was his best season as a pro. He would move on to join the New Orleans Saints where Dennis Allen was the defensive backs coach. He was released and re-signed several times in his three seasons with the Saints. In total he played in seven games, starting just two and had a total of two catches for a total of 19 yards.

He will add some depth and competition to the tight end corps for the Raiders for mandatory mini camps as well as training camp. He joins Brandon Myers, David Ausberry, Richard Gordon, and Kyle Efaw on the roster.
