Raiders Sign FB Ryan Yurachek, Waive FB Henry Poggi


The Oakland Raiders announced Friday that they’ve signed FB Ryan Yurachek to a contract and waived FB Henry Poggi.

Yurachek wound up going undrafted out of Marshall following this year’s draft before securing the tryout with the Saints. New Orleans signed him to a contract soon after before cutting him loose in recent weeks.

Yurachek was a first-team Conference USA selection during his senior year.

During his four-year college career at Marshall, Yurachek caught 143 passes for 1,354 (9.5 YPC) to go along with 26 touchdowns. He also rushed for 40 yards on three carries and no touchdowns.
