Raiders Trade K Eddy Pineiro To Bears

Robbie Gould might not be coming back to Chicago after all. On Monday, the Bears acquired kicker Eddy Pineiro from the Raiders, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The deal will net the Raiders a 2021 seventh-round pick, provided that Pineiro is on Chicago’s active roster for five games.

After last weekend’s rookie minicamp, the Bears trimmed their kickers down from four to two. Now, they have three kickers to audition in Pineiro, Elliott Fry, and Chris Blewitt.

Pineiro, who joined the Raiders as a UDFA out of Florida last year, has yet to kick in a regular season game. In the preseason last year, he made all three of his field goal tries, plus his lone XP attempt.

Raiders Sign Six UDFAs

Amid a busy offseason that saw the Raiders bring in plenty of new faces via free agency, along with nine draft picks, the Silver and Black are lighter on undrafted free agents. But they did bring in six talents. Here’s the full rundown:

Piniero set the Florida record for field goal accuracy, making 38 of his 43 tries with the Gators — including 29 of his final 30. He’ll be set to compete with second-year kicker Giorgio Tavecchio. The Raiders gave Pineiro a $25K signing bonus, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets.

Officer started 48 games at Pitt, at center and both guard spots, and joins a Raiders team that did not draft an interior lineman nor bring one in via free agency. Baugh started 29 games for the Buckeyes. He’ll attempt to make a Raiders team that has Jared Cook signed through only 2018 and blocking tight end Lee Smith entering his age-31 season. Oakland added Derek Carrier as a free agent.
