Myers set to sign?

Profootballtalk.com is reporting the Raiders, according to a league source, are prepared to sign sixth-round draft pick Brandon Myers.

Heard the same thing myself a couple of hours ago, in fact, was told that agent Nate Haber had posted on a Twitter account it was for four years.

Haven’t seen anything on that Twitter account, however.

Myers was the 202nd player selected _ three picks after of Stryker Sulak, the defensive end/linebacker the Raiders cut Wednesday. PFT reports a $90,000 signing bonus for Myers _ within a few thousand of what Sulak would have received.

Among the most ridiculous arguments for the cutting of Sulak is that the club is short of cash. The 90 to 100 grand in bonus money it would have taken to sign Sulak is couch change compared to what it’s going to take to bring in Darrius Heyward-Bey and Mike Mitchell.

And those two players will almost assuredly be to camp on time.

If the Raiders suddenly can’t bring Heyward-Bey, Mitchell and Matt Shaugnessy to camp _ or abruptly cut any of them _ the cash-flow argument is worth considering.

    Morning Nation!!!!

    Read BSJ’s thing on Southwick the other day (good read) and got me thinking a little. First, with his religious beliefs, doesn’t that bar him from playing on Sundays? We know this because we drafted a guy, Eli Herring, from BYU who announced before the draft that he would not play in the NFL due to his religious beliefs. Yet Al still drafted him, amazing.

    That was also the same draft as Joe Aska. So in 1995 we used a 3rd rounder on a RB with (ahem) vision issues, and used a 6th on a religious freak who said he would not play and held his word. Quite the draft of characters I would say (also Barret Robbins in the 2nd).

    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    Southwick is on a mission from God, Vegas. Danny is here to repay Al for the 6th rounder who Brigham Young needed elsewhere on Sundays. Sleepers and haters shall be smote.

    From SI.COM Ross Tucker:

    So when a guy like Stryker Sulak gets cut by the Raiders prior to signing a contract or attending training camp, what kind of monetary compensation does he receive for attending OTAs?
    – Ted Castaneda, Saskatoon, SK Canada

    Players receive $130 per workout in the offseason and because Sulak was cut before signing a contract, it is extremely unlikely he will receive anything remotely close to the approximately $70,000 signing bonus he would have received in a rookie contract from the Raiders. Either Sulak performed extremely poorly in the offseason workouts or the Raiders have a lack of respect for either draft choices, in general, or their own scouting department, in particular. It’s hard to believe they wouldn’t even give their draft pick a chance to perform with shoulder pads.

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/ross_tucker/07/17/mail/index.html?eref=T1
    ——————————————————

    Sulak was signed as a project, to try to take over the OLB/DE position. The signing of Greg Ellis, a solid veteran, who seemingly has improved with age, made Sulak expendable. It shouldn’t be that hard to figure out especially if you claim to be a “sports writer” for SI.

    O,

    You pray 7 times a day?

  • http://Raiders.com RaiderTW

    Raider O, say this prayer for me;
    “Oh Lord Oooh you are so big you are So ab – solutely huge. Gosh, we’re all really impressed down here I can tell you. Forgive Us, O Lord, for this dreadful toadying. And barefaced flattery. But you are so strong and, well, just so super.
    Amen.”

    Thanks TW

    #2. Coach on Wheels. You forgot Oakland dominated SD for 3 quarters last year and the second time we played Denver we kicked their azz and shut their vaunted passing game DOWN.

    Got a feeling Merriman will never be the same. He’s walking around bone on bone with that knee and L.T. may suddenly get “football” old next season.

    We put up points and run the ball on them effectively, we should come out on top.

    It’ll be a test for our new tackles thats for sure.
