The Raiders had a busier Saturday morning than most of us.
They signed three offensive depth players, including re-signing former Dallas Cowboys’ backup running back Rod Smith.

Former Cowboys and Giants RB Rod Smith also is re-signing with the Raiders on a one-year deal, per source.

Smith is a big running back the Raiders desired as a backup. He is 6-foot-3, 236 pounds ... so, yes, he’s a bruiser.
He was with the team for the final three games of last season, but didn’t have any carries.
Smith, 28 is from Ohio State. He played for the Dallas Cowboys from 2015-18, where he was with now-Raiders’ special teams coach Rich Bisaccia. He played three games with the Titans last season.
Smith has 101 career attempts for 364 yards but it is no sure thing he will make the 53-man roster.
The Raiders could still bring back backup DeAndre Washington.
