Today the Oakland Raiders found a Diamond in Ricky Lumpkin. Lumpkin is a massive defensive tackle from the University of Kentucky. Lumpkin signed on the Oakland Raiders practice squad today after being injured for the past several weeks.
Lumpkin was an undrafted free agent that signed with the Arizona Cardinals. The best way to remember Ricky Lumpkin was when he lit up Matt Lienart in the pre-season and was fined 21,000 dollars when Lienart was an Oakland Raider. Expect Lumpkin to be called up soon if he checks out medically, because he is too good of a player to be just sitting on the practice squad.
