    Raiders sign Michael Bennett

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on May 6, 2010 6:47 PM ET
    Surely in a dark mood after releasing Jamarcus Russell, Al Davis purchased a pick-me-up on Thursday.

    The Raiders signed Michael Bennett, replacing a quarterback that can throw the ball really far with a running back that can run in a straight line really fast. Or used to, anyway.

    Bennett has 30 carries over the last two years with Tampa Bay and San Diego. The Raiders are the fifth organization he's joined.

    Bennett will be a good pickup for OAK. He BARELY saw the field when he was here. He has at least 1 more 1k season tho doubt that he sees the field enuff to get there I woulndt count him out this year as done.

    There's probably a reason he hasn't seen the field much.

    People spin that as a good thing too much for some reason.

    Its understandable we had the whole let LT get his snaps and be happy and also see if its true he lost a step game we did while he was here. *bennett*

    He deffinatly isnt anything more than a multi back system N/S runner. But he is a good player for this year and could be next depending on his workload. We will see if you or others are right about his playing time being a sign of his wear/tear.

    Still on a similar note, I am very surprised at failed physical Justin Fagas still being on the FA market... I think this is a bigger tell about player skill than having to sit on a bench behind LT and Sproles.

    Bennett is a situational guy. Quick, slashing N/S guy who runs strong. The Raiduhs have a surplus there.
