Raiders | TE Notes

Tue, 31 Jul 2001 08:15:08 -0700

Dave Williams reports for the Press Democrat Oakland Raiders TE Mondriel Fulcher is trying his hardest to impress the coaches at training camp as he attempts to move up the team's depth chart. Injuries to TEs ends Jeremy Brigham and Eric Bjornson have opened the door for him and Fulcher has taken advantage of the opportunity. He has made impressive catches and done about all the coaching staff has asked of him. Fulcher has a chance to move up to second on the depth chart behind Roland Williams, who is all but set as the starter. A healthy return for Brigham may not make that possible though.
