The Chiefs signed FB: John Paul Foschi

Foschi (6-3, 266) appeared in 11 games (five starts) as a member of the Oakland Raiders from 2004-06. Originally joining the Raiders as a member the practice squad in 2004, Foschi made the club’s Opening Day 53-man roster in 2005 and saw action in 10 contests (five starts). He finished the 2005 campaign with six receptions for 37 yards (6.2 avg.) and recorded one special teams tackle. He appeared in one contest with Oakland in 2006 before being released on October 7th. Prior to joining the Raiders, Foschi spent portions of the 2004 campaign on the developmental squads of both Denver and Minnesota. He originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the N.Y.

A collegiate tight end, Foschi earned honorable mention All-ACC honors as a senior in 2003 and finished as the Yellow Jackets third-leading receiver with 24 receptions for 174 yards (7.3 avg.) and two TDs. Foschi prepped at Chaminade High School in Mineola, New York.

Carl screwed him over. If he signed him yesterday (Tuesday) he could have gotten the quarter-pounders buy 1 get 1 for $.01

It might not work, but turning over rocks like this doesn't hurt. That's how we found Tony Richardson.

I'll bet they draft a FB in the mid-rounds.

We now have like 12 fullbacks, but no right tackles. Great.

Oliver Hoyte is the only one that I think has a chance, even then he's got to improve his game.

I don't think he has game at all. Boomer is/was as good as Hoyte.

Put 30 lbs on this guy and we'd have that RT.

Boomer is a natural LBer, who desperately did everything he could to make the team, hence struggling as a FB. Boomer is a high-motor guy, but I can't say I'm disappointed we are attempting to upgrade the position.

What has he been doing since October 7, 2006? He has been out of the NFL at least for a season and a half, this can not be a good thing.

Carl : "No, no...I have a good feeling about this one. And I know my fullbacks"
