ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders signed running back Kory Sheets from the Canadian Football League on Wednesday.
Sheets originally entered the NFL in 2009 as an undrafted free agent on San Francisco's practice squad. He played his only two games with Miami and also spent time on Carolina's practice squad.
Sheets spent the past two seasons with Saskatchewan in the CFL. He rushed for 2,875 yards and 23 touchdowns, averaging 5.6 yards per carry. Sheets was the MVP of the 2013 Grey Cup when he rushed for a Grey Cup-record 197 yards and two TDs in a win over Hamilton.
Oakland might need to replace its top two running backs from last season with Rashad Jennings and Darren McFadden eligible to become unrestricted free agents.
