Vote of confidence for Shaughnessy

With multiple media outlets reporting the release of wide receiver Javon Walker and defensive end Greg Ellis Monday, the player who stands the most to gain is defensive end Matt Shaughnessy.

Walker was in the second year of a renegotiated contract which which guaranteed him $2.6 million this season. He ends his Raiders career with 15 receptions for 196 yards and one touchdown and will pocket some $21 million.

The two-year payout is now being reported as closer to $14 million. What I relief. For a minute there, I thought the Raiders had gotten fleeced.

Ellis is a bit of a surprise in that the lineman most expected to go was defensive tackle Gerard Warren, who has a $1 million roster bonus due at some point this month.

When last seen at the facility following the season, Ellis talked of having non-invasive knee surgery which would enable him to play another season. He had an in-season arthroscopic procedure which caused him to miss two games.

Lauded by coach Tom Cable for his leadership ability along with fellow veteran end Richard Seymour, one reason Ellis became expendable was the play of Shaughnessy, a third-round draft pick out of Wisconsin.

Shaghnessy was not only extremely active, showing the ability to get to the sideline as well as downfield to make a play, but hopefully will develop into a solid point-of-attack player for the NFL’s 29th ranked rushing defense.

Ellis, strength was primarily as a pass rusher and in his last year in Dallas had his snaps limited against teams that went heavy to the run.

Both transactions showed up Tuesday afternoon on the NFL official personnel wire, and were confirmed by the Raiders.

    Cody showed up at the combine at 354. He still looked like a slob.
    ===========================================

    He was by far the heaviest the guy there. By far. And if he is that heavy after an entire college football season, coming into the most important 3 months of his life, what happens when he cashes the check? Guys like Cody can play college football heavy and out of shape, in fact it probably helps their game. In the pros, they’re going get destroyed.

  • Norco Bob

    Hes going to be released, in the summer,..and I bet hes out of the league a full year,..then tries for comeback,..hope things work out for him. Real longshot though.

  • priesttj

    Bob,

    do you really think this is the first rodeo for Mr Davis with a drug addict player? lol This stuff was so prominant in the 70′s it was ridiculous. And he’salso not the first players in the last 10 years that had a problem. He is just making way more money than the others did.

    If he can come out clean and ready to go they’ll have him sit aand get ready and when he is he’ll play. Bret Farve was taking 25 vicodin a day. There several others that never hit the news. Like Joe Montana.

    It’s very serious but far from a deal breaker.

    Bob

    This is actually good news to me. If it’s all true This kid has a ton of talent and this was the only thing in his way. I just never talked about it because I never witnessed it myself. But I also never denied it, because way to many people told me about it. In fact I used to have a guy who would follow him around and give me feedback. Until I got tired of hearing it.
    =================
    Lmao..you’re such a liar.
    You state you only “heard about it”..that you weren’t sure..but now you had SOMEONE FOLLOWING HIM AROUND?

    dude..you’re like this silly pathological liar..making things up as you go along..most contradicting things you’ve said previously. thing about liars is they can’t remember their lies..

    Oh..wait..LOL..aren’t YOU the one who ran the “best college coaching staff EVER assembled at the same time”?? Where Walsh and Wyche weren’t even around? Yet, to YOU they “definitely were there and which one of you clowns wants to challenge me on it”??

    remember that?

    And look who just slithered out from under his rock: wack-o! Hey I have the wack-o life story right here:

    The Psychopathic Troll:

    The psychopathic troll is motivated to participate in an internet forum by psychotic delusions or compulsions, or by the neurotic seeking of false self esteem. The postings of a psychotic troll are unlikely to make any recognizable sense at all. The neurotic troll either seeks to obtain false self esteem by manipulating the reactions of others, or by demonstrating his “power” to destroy what others enjoy. The neurotic troll is often manipulative enough to make it past the initial moderation.

  • NorthernD

    priesttj,
    Russell hasn’t produced on the field. If he had,then maybe they look the other way. Maybe he gets away with it.
    They won’t give him any slack now.

    Everyone knows you have a least two dozen handles, Oakglen..

    What was the reason again?
    Oh yeah…

    Compulsive Cross Poster:
    The compulsive cross poster is someone who has serious self-image problems. They feel that creating multiple handles, and posting to oneself, and then proceeding to read what they posted, in their own little insecure way, they convince themselves they’re not a loser.
    Some compulsive cross posters will actually engage in full conversations with themselves, only to gloat later to everyone how they conquered..well..their self.
    Once they are exposed, the compulsive cross poster will always make more new handles, hoping to gain back a little bit of self respect that they never seem to find.

    =============================================
    No, I’m not paid by the Raiders. But, if you asked me my own history, I graduated with a four year degree at 20, bought a house at 19 which is paid off, had a public corporation at 26, and I do what I want from the age of 29 on. The question still stands….what have you ever done?
    ^^^^^^^^
    Wow, Seymour Bush….you just proved to be an even bigger jerk and douche than what most us already thought before.
    The thing is NOBODY asked you what you did….ya Douche….and guess what….NOBODY gives a crap!
    We all have our own little ego building uccess stories in some way shape or form and we all have our own screw ups.
    So, in the final analysis….you “may” have graduated when you were 20….and you “may” bought a house at 19 and allegedly paid it off…(i wonder if mommy and daddy might have paid if off for you hmm?) and you “may” have a successful corporation in a down economy no less?
    Howvever, by divulging all this to us on here WITHOUT anyone asking and NOBODY on here CARING…..shows your not very bright and not very mature either are you?
