Raiders to try out Owen Schmitt

The agent for free-agent fullback Owen Schmitt confirmed that his client will work out for the Oakland Raiders this week in their organized team activities.

Schmitt, who has been on the market all offseason, is a rugged blocker and played for new Oakland offensive coordinator Greg Knapp in Seattle.

Oakland fullback Marcel Reece has not signed his restricted free agency tender. He will eventually sign it because he really doesn’t have any other choice.

I could see Oakland signing Schmitt and figuring out whether to keep him on the 53-man roster after the preseason.
