The Raiders worked out fullbacks Derrick Coleman and Tommy Bohanon earlier this week, tweets Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio.
Oakland deployed incumbent fullback Keith Smith on 162 offensive snaps in 2018, good for sixth-most among fullbacks league-wide. However, Smith is currently on the active/non-football injury list after suffering a meniscus injury while working out on his own. As such, the only fullback on the Raiders’ roster is undrafted rookie Alec Ingold.
Coleman, 28, spent the 2012-15 campaigns with the Seahawks, but an alleged hit-and-run incident in 2015 kept him out of the NFL in 2016. He played 224 offensive snaps for the fullback-heavy Falcons in 2017 before spending last year with the Cardinals, with whom he mostly saw special teams duty.
Bohanon, a seventh-round pick in 2013, has appeared in 68 career games (30 starts) for the Jets and Jaguars over the past five seasons. While he isn’t as well-regarded a run-blocker as Coleman, Bohanon has offered far more versatility in the passing game. Bohanon has received 46 targets during his career, whereas Coleman has only seen 21.
