Source: Raiders to sign Keller today

UPDATE: Steve Corkran reports that Keller’s signing is official. The Raiders waived QB Erik Meyer to make room for him.

Looks like the Raiders’ backup quarterback situation is going to get a bit more muddled, with word coming from a source close to Sam Keller that the ex-San Ramon Valley High, Arizona State and Nebraska signal-caller will sign with Oakland today.
Keller worked out with the Raiders at a post-draft mini-camp, but left without signing a contract. The Raiders later re-signed Marques Tuiasosopo, who joined Andrew Walter as the main competitors to back up JaMarcus Russell.
Keller would join Erik Meyer and Jeff Otis, giving the Raiders six quarterbacks heading into training camp in July. Our reporters thought Keller was actually more impressive than both Otis and Meyer in May.

  • Here’s what Sapp said:

    “As dark as a black hole. Stuff went on in that organization that shouldn’t go on in sports. I don’t think there’s one person who knows who or what is making the call. Let’s just say the Oakland experience is unique. The phone rings quite a bit on that sideline. Insubordination is grounds for termination in any company.”

    Vegas, the “actual racism” that is out there is the closet racism people like you suffer from. It enables what’s left of the damaging racism that police and property owners still engage in frequently. Tell your black wife I said hello. You wouldn’t be the first racist to have sex with black women, Vegas. Most slave owners did. What’s the point of bringing your wife into this?

    ah…

    spelling soc!alism with a z get a moderation…

    velly, velly interesting…

    but stupid.

  • MR

    Bo, the word “socia**ism” is dead. Republicans always go to that card when they’ve got nothing else. And, I’ll give you my condolences in advance for voting for McCain.

  • McCain’s Best Fundraiser

    John, order this newspaper to post a new thread. If you don’t, I might withdraw my support of your campaign. DO IT NOW. John? John!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Florida Pete

    lol…

    this is actually fun…

  • You can guess who’s making those calls. If you’re clueless, here’s former Raider employee Mike Lombardi writing for SI.com:

    “Having worked in that “black hole” for eight years, I know exactly what Warren is talking about. And those calls to the sideline are from one man and one man only. At times I have been the reluctant messenger on a few of them myself. They are never pleasant

  • Re: Voting for McCain, soci@lism, etc.

    MR, if you pay closer attention you might detect my sarcasm. Or maybe when you get older you will understand.

  • Florida Pete

    i wonder how many people in the bay area could claim they:

    “bagged a Lombardi” ???

    man, i crack me up…

  • As I was once told, there’s a reason why the Raiders rarely blitz on defense.

    Best case: Davis’ calls provide insight that help. But with all that goes on during a game, no coach wants to worry about taking a message from the owner during a game

    The practice only reminds players their coach really has no say. And there are players that view Raiders coaches as puppets.

  • Actually, if I were to place a bet I would say Obama picks Geo. Mitchell as VP.

    You’re right, K Rock, ignorance is bliss. The same explanation would apply to Americans that are happy.

    I didn’t say I was doing your momma, just that she was ignorant.

    Pretty easy to tell with the brain damage she passed on to you.
