RB Kory Sheets Signed

The Raiders have signed former Saskatchewan Roughriders stand out Kory Sheets.

Sheets had three separate stints in the NFL with the 49ers, Dolphins and finally the Panthers before signing into the CFL back in February of 2012.  He suffered an Achilles injury in training camp of 2010 that effectively pushed away from the League.

With Saskatchewan Sheets has been a standout to say the least.  Rushing for over 3000 yards combined in the past two seasons.  He was the 2013 Grey Cup MVP.

Sheets is a graduate of Purdue University with a degree in Organizational Leadership and Supervision, and holds the second highest mark in career rushing yards for Purdue with 3,341 yards, (#2 behind Mike Alstott) and is the all-time leader in Purdue TDs scored with 54 and rushing TDs with 48...certainly a good goal line back who could help Oakland punch in a few more touchdowns next fall.
