Wesley cut

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, August 11th, 2008 at 2:42 pm in Oakland Raiders, Preseason (2005), Raiders features, Training Camp 2006.

Whether the Raiders utilize Adam Archuleta at linebacker or safety remains to be seen, but they cut a safety to make room for him.

Greg Wesley, omitted from the morning roster but on the field, was released later in the day, according to a league source.

UPDATE: The Raiders have updated Archuleta’s signing and the release of Wesley on their Web site.

It’s also an even swap in terms of salary. Archuleta, should he make the 53-man roster, will make the same $730,000 that Wesley was to receive. Kiffin danced around the topic of Wesley’s status following practice.

“I don’t know that yet. He did move around well today,” Kiffin said. “Had a good workout the day before that but I don’t know that yet.”

    There isn’t another GM in the league any better for the Raiders. Having a better string of sucesses lately? Of course, there are some. Better over the long-haul? That’s laughable. Are there others any more or less likely to make a mistake? Sure, Al’s not perfect…but neither are any of the others, and most don’t have anything like the knowledge of Al Davis.

    Any OBJECTIVE look at Owner or GM records will show that Al’s choices are no better or worse than others are. Show me a GM who hasn’t made mistakes in their choices, and I’ll show you a GM who hasn’t done anything yet.

    We need Al to groom or endorse somebody so that we can have some continuity as RAIDER fans

    yo coach Kiff, just keep matriculateing down the field, that’s it lenny.

    “matriculateing” that’s a old Hank Stram saying.

  • Dakota

    …oh, and lots of booze too….mainly Captain, some Crown…

    What we have here is the ability 2 communicate, we will run Fargus, then we will run D-Mac, then we will run Fargus somemore, then we will run Bush, then we will run D-mac some, then we will run Bush, then we will hit D-mac with a little hitch-pass, and if he does not score, then we will throw a screen 2 Bush, and then if he does not score we will run Fargus, then we will run Bush, then we will run D-Mac some, and I think right about now, the entire freakin league, and the gm’s included r $hit-ting n their pants hopeing that the Raiders do-not remain healthy, cause if they do, we will run run and run, then we will start running it somemore, right down their friggin throats.

  • HayesDaze#37

    Homey — That KC blowhard with the rug on his head and a microphone in his lapel used a big word he didn’t even understand. Even young Kiff knows his football team doesn’t want to matriculate the ball anywhere. They want to pound that ball, throw that ball down the field, and do well on Defense and Special Teams.

    By using the word matriculate when he did, that KC blowhard with the rug on his head simply memorialized his stupidity for eternity.

    Did I mention he was a KC blowhard with a rug on his head?

    Hey Dakota! Up here in Canada we have a saying…

    Q: If you knew the world was going to end tomorrow, what would you do?

    A: Go to Dakota…they are 50 years behind in everything there.

    Yes silvernblack it is, however it will b reinstituted by our beloved Raiders beginng on Monday nite.

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com SilverNblack666

    raiderhomey I have said in here many times that I would like to see us run the ball 40-45 times a game. Most people im here are not going to be happy seeing Russell only throw 20-25 passes a game however. But I like the idea of us running the ball so much.

    Evangelicals! sorry HayeDaze, but it’s true. Sheesh.

    There’s nobody else in football who can go 19-61? Yeah, probably not.

    Mention 19-61 and the evangelicals start spouting scripture, and speaking in tongues.

  • Thec

  • shawnraiders81

    you guys JaMarcus has only thrown 5 passes in the preseason how in the world do we know he will not be airing it out in the regular season!!!! don’t read to much into a preseason offense or defense for that matter.

    I remember watching the Raders in the preseason when we got Sapp & Washington and thinking damn we are going to have a great run defense….. well I was wrong.

    Putin = Antichrist

    we are fuked.

  • http://WWW.IWILL.COM I WILL

    Unsure why the Raiders went for a washed up Archuleta when they should have went for a washed up Lynch…at least Lynch could have provided leadership…I would have advised going after neither,..my guess is they talked to Lynch but he said no thanks.

    Honestly, 19-61 is completely irrelevant. It might be relevant in the off season, but in sports there is only one time that matters. Now.

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com SilverNblack666

    garthraider and you hold on to your bible, your family values and oh yeah keep voting republican!

    I don’t watch other sports I only like Football so it means more to me than most other fans and I stand by what I said. There is nothing in life more important than the Oakland Raiders. If that make me a teddy bear hugger then so be it!

  • http://none MR

    Um, ok, SNB, I know satan worshipers aren’t known for their math, but could you please enlighten us as to how 19-61 is NOT worse than 24-72?!?

  • http://www.thesnake.com Random Drugtester

    my last 2 posts never showed….why? didn’t swear or anything!

  • Mistabrown

    Now cut Jano, the last scholarship player on the roster.

  • http://www.thesnake.com Random Drugtester

    Um, ok, MR, I know figures lie and liars figure, but could you please enlighten us as to how 2 records from the past have anything to do with NOW and the FUTURE?

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com SilverNblack666

    I agree Oakglenn its the beginning of a new season and most of us are stoked for the upcoming season. While others in here are brooding about the last 5 years putting Al Davis in a grave in hopes that a Leprechaun is going to come down from the clouds and make a better owner.

  • garthraider

    Steelyone, a little 11 bravo action,or something more stealth

  • Mistabrown

    All of that and no Raider season tix ?
