Familiar faces among cuts

A few names to keep in mind as some NFL teams begin whittling away at their rosters (the Raiders are no doubt doing it as well, but usually hold on to all information until the last possible second and beyond):

OLB Bruce Davis_Cut by the Steelers, Davis was a third-round draft pick in 2008 who had more than 25 sacks in his junior and senior years at UCLA. His dad happens to be former Raiders offensive tackle Bruce Davis (1979-87). Al Davis has signed legacies before (Grant Irons, son of Gerald Irons, Kevin Smith, son of Charlie Smith).

C Melvin Fowler_Cut by Arizona, Fowler visited the Raiders around the same time as Charlie Frye and before Samson Satele was acquired by trade from Miami. Chris Morris was the surprise starter against Seattle, Satele is struggling and John Wade has missed considerable time with a stinger.

OT Damion McIntosh_Cut by Kansas City, McIntosh, once-upon-a-time, agreed on a contract with the Raiders. Before it was announced, he took a physical _ and failed. McIntosh signed with Miami, where he passed the physical, and has started 74 games in the last four seasons. He has 111 career starts.

C-G Sean Mahan_Cut by Tampa Bay, the National Football Post reports he will visit the Raiders. Mahan can play center or guard. He had no starts in 15 games with the Bucs last year, but started 16 games for Pittsburgh in 2007. He started Tampa Bay’s first two preseason games before being cut.

The Post Thursday night also reported a possible visit and signing from DL Alfonso Boone.

Guessing they’ll pass on Andrew Walter, cut by the Patriots.

    I am going to be Don King and see if I can get an exclusive pay per view on HBO to promote the LeGarrette Blount and Coach Cable prize fight.

    Right now the odds are 4 to 1 for Cable

  • CASPER

    How about This let’s trade Fargus and pick up some quality D-line or let’s let our scrubs go and pick up some of that d-line action the Giants are letting loss!Them released players are better then our starters!!Then Lets take it back and put in alittle twin back formations McFadden and Bush swinging right to left and every which way!! Then put out wide 4 to 5 wideouts at a time!! 2 step drop for a crap shout of a line and his “great are” should equal something Uncommon to us Winning games!!! I have been playing and coaching football my whole life, It doesn’t much but a smarter game plan then the same one we have been running for six years to change. Changing the players but not the way we play the game does not equal new resolutes!!
