By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Thursday, July 30th, 2009 at 7:02 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders have reportedly come to terms with top pick Darrius Heyward-Bey, according to former NFL Network and current ESPN-to-be correspondent Adam Schefter via Profootballtalk.com

It remains to be seen whether the deal will be finalized before this morning’s practice. Check my Twitter account for an update on the field to see if Heyward-Bey takes the field.

    Thanks CJ!!

    Interesting read, CJ Legend34. It would be great if DHB made a splash for us. I wasn’t very happy about the selection, but I really hope my initial reaction was wrong. From everything I’ve read, he seems like a good guy. A quality young man. I love the unofficial competition he’s about to have with that punk across the bay. Maybe, this time, a nice guy can finish first.

    Jhill, thanks for the info. I don’t care if JaWalrus is 350 lbs and we call him Fat Albert all season long. I just want to see progress!

    3200 yards, 20 TD’s and fewer fumbles …

  • RaiderRockstar

    be back later. gotta meeting :(

  • Brien the 510 General

    Jheezy, what it do bruh bruh?

  • SNB Defense

    JHill,

    Actually that’s a good answer from Russell. Able to talk freely and throw a little joke in there. Sounds like a confident guy. He could have just said…”I am fine..next question”

    But as Rockstar said…bottom line is progress, 3000+ yds 20TDS and few fumbles….It will be all good then

  • Brien the 510 General

    I hope he is the real deal. I actually wanted us to draft Crabtree until I thought about how many other teams who need a WR passed on him as well. They keep doging the Raiders for passing on him and taking DHB but there were other teams in need of a WR that passed on the guy as well. I think with Crabtree coming out of college what you see is what you get. I thought DHB had the most upside because of his natural ability, size, speed and hands. He can catch in traffic and I already heared he played B-Ball which really helps you develop your hands. So will wait and see man. I will be cheering for the guy and I understand the strategy for drafting him to open up the field. I am really excited about our youg offensive talent.

  • Brien the Oakhole Ambassador

    LOL. Yeah, nice to see you out on parole Brien. When you disappeared we had to ask Bob of you over-thizzed.

    Report: DHB signed
    I know this is a little late, practice ran all morning followed by an hour of interviews.

    So before lunch is served, No. 7 overall pick Darrius Heyward-Bey has signed a five-year contract, as first reported by Adam Schefter and confirmed by a Raiders official.

    Sports agent Alvin Keels tweeted the deal had $23.5 million guaranteed and $38.25 million in base salary with a maximum value of $54 million, according to his league source. Why does Keels care if he doesn’t represent DHB? Because he’s got the No. 6 pick, Andre Smith of the Bengals.

    Raiders coach Tom Cable would not confirm the signing, saying he did not know because he was at the first practice of training camp. DHB wasn’t because the deal was still being worked out at team headquarters in Oakland.

    In other quick-hit news …

    ** Still no Derrick Burgess, and don’t ask Cable about it because he doesn’t want to talk about it.

    ** DHB could be at today’s afternoon practice if the league approves the contract in a hurry. If he is, one player won’t be — and the guess here is quarterback Andrew Walter will be cut (and gladly so).

    ** Wide receiver Javon Walker (knee) starts camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Robert Gallery doesn’t, but he rather he is on the Reserve Non-Football Illness/Injury list as he recovers from an appendectomy.

    ** Practice had no contact. Nothing but position drills and semi-plays being run as they focused on footwork, being in position, etc. When the offense lined up with the defense, the play was whistled dead before it could develop beyond the line of scrimmage.

    It will stay this way for another three days of two-a-days before the pads go on Monday. Players all sing the same tune — this is smart, this is better — and of course they do. The easier the better, considering they’ve got to be here 31 days.

    ** Position competition won’t start until Monday, but here are people discerned to be on the first team: LT Mario Henderson, LG Paul McQuistan, C Samson Satele, RG Cooper Carlisle, RT Cornell Green, TE Zach Miller, QB JaMarcus Russell.

    On the defense, LE Trevor Scott, NT Gerard Warren, DT Tommy Kelly, LE Greg Ellis, SLB Jon Alston, MLB Kirk Morrison, WLB Thomas Howard, SS Tyvon Branch, FS Hiram Eugene, CB Nnamdi Asomugha, CB Chris Johnson.

    It’s worth noting Ricky Brown also did some first-team at middle linebacker.

    More after eating.

    Yeah….probably will have Fargas starting at RB too.

    It is what it is

  • Teabag

    All I know is Henderson better hold the LT spot and Barnes better beat out Green for the RT spot or we are in for a loooooooong season

  • itzSteve

    Just heard on KNBR…they are reporting that DHB contract is 5yrs for 38 million…with 20+ guaranteed.
