Morning Texan Fans-
I am Tom A Hawk.......major Chiefs fan and major hater of Raiders and Broncos. You won't have to worry about me bashing Texans unless it is in defense of myself or the Chiefs.

Anyway, I read on a Raider board (one that I can be friendly on, and where we exchange good humored trash talk on)...that the Raiders have signed your LB Foreman......fill me in please?

When did he hit the trading blocks? I thought he was a pretty decent linebacker and that he signed a multi year contract not long ago.

Are you all shopping him? Or is Greasy Al courting your management team?

Forman and Sharper were shown the door approx. the same time to seek trade or another team.

he was released a few weeks ago. He is a decent back up but he is slow

Would be a good back-up, but undersized and slow! If not, he would still be with the Texans. :goodnight

And he had two (TWO!) personal foul penalties that caused us to lose the game against the Bills. Still can't forgive that, even if it was in Year One.

I wouldn't worry too much about Foreman. I've seen reports that have him signing with the Raiders, but if you see him out on the field against your Chiefs you should get a big smile on your face. Anyone who Foreman will match up against in coverage will likely beat him. If he somehow ends up matched up against Tony G then you should sit back and wait for the TD. Honestly he'll be a decent backup for the Raiders, but if he is pressed into starting his weaknesses will become very apparent.
