A couple of updates to the roster by John Herrera on the field:

FB Lorenzo Neal is wearing No. 41, with Louis Rankin wearing No. 40.

RB Gary Russell, who has experience with Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, was signed and is wearing No. 23.

QB Danny Soutwick is in on a tryout basis.

More to come later . . .

    I agree, I can’t drink the Kool-Aid just yet but from a mimi-camp standpoint, I’m impressed with day one.

    Norris is wearing a ROY nike shirt!!!!!!

    uh-ohh Dakota more Blazer lovers in Raider-land!!!!!!

  • RaiderRockstar

    yea meant 2 DTs with 5 LB/DEs confusing the offense on the edges and the regular set of 4 DBs.

    kinda what the Jints do

    ***

    what about a front seven of Morrison, Howard, Burgess, Warren, Kelly, Scott & Shaughnessy?

    that seems like a good mixture of beef + pressure

    sub in Sands, Brown & Richardson for Burgess, Scott & Howard on obvious running plays …

    yes. find the players who can line up at DE and bring it but also drop and cover the quick passes the QBs look for when they see a LB or DB coming

    Jerry,

    Where is the Fix??

    I don’t need it (thx to Twitter), but I still like to hear what you have to say?

    We like you Jerry, but we can’t be waiting for hours and days for that FIX!!!

    Do your job Sir!!

    that’s a great vid; I like Cable out front greeting all the rooks.

    Didn’t Lorenzo Neal block for Jesus in college?

  • Raider-405

    10+ WRs, 4 QBs, they needed the extra camp arm. We do that every year.

    I am curious if we have the other punter on the roster to fill for Shane so he doesnt mess up that golf game – haha

    2-6-4 fronts ? thats 12 men!

    Kelly & Warren up front.

    Morrison, Howard, Brown, Scott & Burgess at LB?

    LOL

    yea meant 2 DTs with 5 LB/DEs confusing the offense on the edges and the regular set of 4 DBs.

    kinda what the Jints do

    ^^^^^
    Almost exactly like the way the Giants do it and Eagles.

    Basically it’s the way to run an effective 4-3

    Neal is a great FB, if he has another year in him, then I’m glad it’s with us. O’niel is better, but he is hurt. this is the next best thing IMO. This must be what Al meant by adding more power to the ZBS. Big mashing FBs with big M. Bush following. We are going to have a vicious running game next year. If Cable plays his cards right, we could surprise a lot of people. But, I always feel that way this time of year, so we’ll see. I can’t wait for the after practice details from Jerry.

    Is Neal any better than bringing Crockett out of retirement?
    _________________________________________________________

    Crockett was never all that great as a lead blocker. He was okay, but he was more of a HB than a FB.

    Neal is a great signing, even if he’s only going to be a rotational player. Adding him to the locker room alone is a great move.

    I really don’t like reading Jerry’s mini camp coverage. Jerry is to sports writing what Stu Sweigart was to playing safety.
