Evening Oakland news and notes
Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson
The Raiders are also reportedly talking to veteran fullback Lorenzo Neal. It would be somewhat surprising if Oakland brought in both players, since they would fill similar roles.
Pittman was moved from tailback to fullback out of necessity last season. Oakland needs fullbacks more than running backs. Both Pittman and Neal are tough, fine blockers. Adding either one would help Oakland.
Some Oakland fans wanted the Raiders to sign Bay Area native Roy Williams. That hope is now dashed since Cincinnati has added the former Dallas safety.
The Raiders will hold their mandatory minicamp this weekend.
