I’m interested in understanding a bit better as to why Blaine kept signing with the Oilers/Titans. Great card. Looked like quite the intimidator back in the day.

Yeah so I had a lot more set needs I needed to corral when it came to Mike Tomczak. -Three of them are represented here. He was kind enough to inscribe them as well. Basically this should close the book on any further need to get Mike TTM further.

Western Colorado’s very own Sam Seale was a dangerous speed burner who ran track and played RB in college leading the team in both rushing and receiving. The Raiders and Al Davis who always had a love affair with speed, selected Seale in the 8th round of the 1984 NFL draft. The Raiders kicked the tires on him at WR and return man, before converted him to DB. Intercepted first pass for a 38 yard TD against the Patriots in 1985. Officially transitioned to RCB the following season and had a career high 4 interceptions. In ’87 returned a fumble return for a TD. Signed as a Free Agent by the San Diego Chargers in 1988, and matched career high with 4 interceptions that year. Returned to the Raiders ’92 as a Plan B free agent seeing action in 5 contests. Played one final year across town with the Rams, seeing action in one contest, retiring after the ’93 season. In 1995, joined the Green Bay Packers front office where he’s earned quite a reputation as a scout.

NOTES: Getting Sam was somewhat of a coup. An exceeding rare signer, I took a shot at getting him on these two set needs through the Packers.
