Owen Schmitt RB OAK 12 Months
Raiders waived FB Owen Schmitt.
Schmitt was active for all 13 games this season, but is no longer needed with Marcel Reece shifting back to fullback. Schmitt has appeared in at least 15 games every year since 2008, and could find a new home for the season's final three contests.

The Raiders need depth for offseason practices, as starter Marcel Reece has yet to sign his exclusive rights free agent tender and is not participating in workouts. Schmitt has experience with OC Gregg Knapp from their time together in Seattle two years ago.

Free agent FB Owen Schmitt will work out for the Raiders this week.
The former Seahawks and Eagles lead blocker was rated as one of the league's least effective fullbacks in 2011 by Pro Football Focus. He'd have a tough time finding a roster spot behind Marcel Reece.
