Raiders sign IK Enemkpali who once punched teammate Geno Smith and broke his jaw

New, comments

Friday there will be a couple of official free agent addition announcements from the Raiders. One of them will be the addition of IK Enemkpali according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Enemkpali’s claim to fame is being the guy who once punched teammate Geno Smith in the face and broke his jaw. Geno Smith supposedly owed Enemkpali money and kept giving Enemkpali the brush off. So, Enemkpali got his payback another way.

The Jets cut Enemkpali because of it, and former Jets head coach Rex Ryan -- who was then Buffalo’s head coach — scooped him up. Geno would be out for a while with the broken jaw and never got his starting job back.

Enemkpali appeared in 11 games with the Bills in 2015, but was lost to a torn ACL that had him out all of 2016. He’s apparently healthy now and ready to try and make another NFL roster.
