The Raiders are reportedly bringing in tight end Ben Troupe. He was cut by Tampa Bay this week.

To make room for Troupe, the Raiders cut tight end John Madsen.

Troupe will provide some solid experience and ability as a backup. He is a strong blocker. For Oakland that means a lot since it is a run-first offense. Troupe had some success with Tennessee before signing with Tampa Bay.
