Update: Ellis to sign with Raiders

Greg Ellis could be the most recent veteran leader to be added to a youthful Raiders roster, according to AOL’s NFL Fanhouse.

UPDATE: The word I’m getting is the Raiders have been working diligently to bring Ellis aboard and it appears likely he’ll be brought aboard this week and be on hand for this week’s OTA.

Ellis is a respected NFL veteran who fits in with the signings of Jeff Garcia and Lorenzo Neal, a veteran who hopefully not only has something left to offer as a pass rusher but as a leader in a unit which could use that type of presence.

It remains to be seen whether Ellis has anything left or is another Greg Spires, who came to the Raiders in similar circumstances last season but failed to make the 53-man roster.

The Raiders have not confirmed this signing. They have their final OTA starting Tuesday, with media availability on Wednesday.

    Is Oden following Russell’s diet? Entering the 2008–09 season he is listed at 250 lb (110 kg), but according to Blazers’ trainer Jay Jensen he weighed about 290 lb (130 kg) in July. Bad on the knees.

    OAK,

    I like all music except country! I even like Bluegrass!

  • OAKlifer

    I would like to think the Raiders are doing some of the image rebuilding the Blazers had to do the last few years!! And it has worked wonders in P-town lets hope the results are the same here in the Bay!! Getting rid of all the me first, Win first, Stat First guys, who smoke d0pe and punch teammates in the face!!!! and getting guys like Brandon Roy, and DHB/M&M to help make our teams better and when we need vetran presence we dnt run out and grab TO or Plax or Vick we bring in guys like Neal and Ellis…Wheras last year it was G Wilson and Hall!!! we all see how that works!!!GOOD WORK UNCLEW AL!!!!

    Get on JRuss when he needs to. Right now all we know is that he did good for the last two games and seemed to be turning a corner. His weight was not a issue at all last year. He is a big dude thats gonna be big. For how big he is at least he isnt a statue.

    OAK,

    I’m looking for them at YouTube now!

  • exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    I’m getting more optimistic each week about the Raider’s. Greg Ellis is a beast.

    See ya later early crew.

    Well Dakota, BoSJack fulfilled his part of the bargain and got you an NBA title. Now it’s your turn to comply by bringing another ring to the Silver and Black. (Hint: having the three areas of the football team play as cohesive units rather than as a collection of individuals is the best place to start. Individuals, very talented or merely adequate, are each made better when as a part of a whole they have one another’s back.)

    going good man, thanks for asking. congrats on your laker title. well deserved.
    i like what i see so far with our raiders, i hope everything plays out well for us now. ya know one of jerrys comment i read on the last chat really made sense to me. i mean, jerry has been my eyes to the raiders since i first visited this site 3 years ago. this site is my only first had news. cant get much raider coverage living in cowgirl country especially living way down deeep here in south texas. the question was…
    ——comment was from Marcus from PA
    “Jerry, you have covered the Raiders for a number of years, what is the difference this off-season compared to the others that would give us hope that the Raiders are turning things around. How is Cable camp different from the others? ”
    2:06 jerrymac: It’s not the Cable camp so much as the fact that they strayed from adding big names who were really the failures of other teams and instead are working on developing their own young players. That, combined with an out-of-nowhere final two games when it looked as if they were done for, make the beginning of this season much more interesting.
    ——-
    as ive heard before,
    it gets worse before it gets better…..

    i think its time for the better for us now…dont you think fellas.

    RAIDER FAHQIN NATION BABY.

    Yes, beating SD will go along way than just that victory.

    It may be asking for too much but I hope they truly shut down LT. I would wish the same for Philip Rivers but I may take him in my fantasy football pool!
