Lorenzo Neal Is a Oakland Raider!

Gil BecerraCorrespondent IMay 8, 2009

Ramone Brown reported this last week. I just checked David White's (Sfgate.com Silver and Black writer) Twitter account for updates on Mini-Camp today.  Here's what he wrote:

minicamp has started, lorenzo neal is a raider.

That is AWESOME! This man will plow through linebackers letting Justin Fargas, Darren McFadden and Michael Bush bust through the hole!

Coach Cable mentioned that FB was a position of need but it was never addressed. We didn't address it via draft nor free agency (prior to this pick-up). Michael Pittman formerly from the Broncos was getting looked at also.

Hopefully Oren O'Neal gets a chance to get fully healthy and learn alot from Lorenzo. This man blew holes up for LT for a long-time as we all saw and now he's on our side. Sure it might be only a year (I dont know any details regarding the contract/terms) but that'll be enough to teach O'Neal and rub some experience off on the younger guys. I think this is an awesome signing!

What do you think Nation?!?
