O’Neill tells local paper he’ll be a Raider again

Chris O’Neill, the tight end who was asked by Al Davis to move inside to linebacker only to waived before camp began, could be in uniform Saturday against New Orleans.

At least that is what O’Neill, a Boise State product, told his local paper.

No word on who will be cut to make room for O’Neill on the 80-man roster.

O’Neill had a tryout with the Minnesota Vikings on Aug. 16. He concedes his future is likely on the practice squad rather than the 53-man roster.

The Raiders are without Kirk Morrison (elbow), Isaiah Ekejiuba (shoulder) and possibly rookie Slade Norris (calf) against New Orleans. O’Neill was learning to play middle linebacker, which is where both Morrison and Ekejiuba play. Ricky Brown’s backup in the middle of late has been Sam Williams.

    If we are logged on to this blog, and try and post but the post isnt posting it,..it isnt actually kicking us off the page, so not re-entering the blog page,..so we arent giving multiple hits.

  • Norco Bob

    Its no big conspiracy to get more hits and more advertising revenue,…just a week server. Clearly they changed server about 2 weeks ago.

    Don’t be hatin’ Nordork.

    Crabtree won’t be sitting out the year..it’s only week two. Hell..you should know that..look at fatass Russell..he sat out until week two OF THE REGULAR SEASON..
    ———————————————

    Hey dumfuk, I already told you, Russell was not going to play in his rookie season anyway. The Whiners DESPERATELY needed Craptree to start. Problem was Craptree wanted $100mm when he was worth $20mm. So, Craptree is going back into the draft in 2010. Think I’m kidding?? the Whiners drafted Alex Smith Number One Overall didn’t they?? And he is going to be cut in two weeks! Whiners have NO HOPE!
