WSSU's Michael Bloomfield signs with Oakland Raiders

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina -- Defensive end Michael Bloomfield of Winston-Salem State was not drafted by an NFL team but he’ll get his chance with the Oakland Raiders.

Bloomfield said he’s been signed to a contract with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent and he’ll fly to California this week for a three-day minicamp.

If Bloomfield, who is 6-2 and 250 pounds, does enough at the minicamp he could stick around and compete at another rookie camp later this summer.

Bloomfield, a fifth-year senior, had his best season for the Rams and made several Division II All-America lists.

He helped the Rams to a 6-5 record which included the CIAA championship game, a 17-14 win over Bowie State. Bloomfield had his best game of his career with four sacks and a forced fumble. He was also in on six tackles.

Bloomfield is the lone player on the Rams who was part of all three of their CIAA titles over the last five seasons.
