Warren the latest to go

The speculation that defensive tackle Gerard Warren would be cut before he was due a sizable bonus payment has apparently become reality.

Nothing official from the Raiders yet, but the National Football Post and NFL Network are reporting Warren was released Thursday. On his Twitter account this morning, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Warren was due a $5.925 million option bonus on March 14. Warren was due $755,000 in salary this season.

The Raiders obviously considered that way too much for an on and off tackle who had a career low two sacks.

With the release of both Warren and Greg Ellis, the Raiders have lost two defensive linemen who were part of their regular rotation _ neither of whom was considered particularly stout against the run.

It puts defensive line in play for a high draft pick, and also means Desmond Bryant, who had an impressive rookie year as an undrafted free agent out of Harvard, is in line for a starting spot at tackle alongside Tommy Kelly.

At present, Bryant and Kelly are the only two defensive tackles on the roster, although Richard Seymour moves inside in some defensive packages. William Joseph, who finished the season with the Raiders, is an unrestricted free agent who could probably be re-signed at a moderate price.

    Do you have any professional photo’s of yourself or your website to share. That way, I could figure out your expertise.
    ==========================
    This is not smack…but your web page?

    It’s bad..I mean…really bad.
    You see the other realtors web pages?
    EVERYONE ELSE WHO WORKS FOR KANE??

    Every SINGLE ONE, except yours, looks good..classy..professional.

    Yours? Looks like the dopey neighborhood idiot did it, for a lollipop. Bad pictures, bad subjects..bad topics…bad descriptions.

    I’ll say it again…”that’s my wife surveying the land”?? lmao…you’re an idiot..aren’t you, Mikey? Someone standing there, staring at a hill? Let’s forget that it’s horrible property, and probably on the side of Mt Diablo..it’s stupid.

    A full blown head up ass, idiot.

    However old kells wrong, T.O. wont have any affect on russell,..as russell isnt making it out of Napa. Im told that by a rock solid source,..his only chance is to win job, he wont be kept at 9 million as a backup,..and the raiders know he wont compete, work, try, for the starting job,..wont,..doesnt know how…no Im not happy bout that,…hes let us all down, and its his own fault,..contrary to what old kell says,..this ones on him, not any toxic environment…word.

  • severeraiderz

    I’ve been saying for a while now that Antonio pierce would be a good pick up. Hess great leader, a no non sense, is a raider fan who won’t generate a lot of interest so his price tag would be cheap. He also does his best work stopping the run, an area we clearly need help in. Only question now is with that neck injury can he pass a physical?

    TO will easily make Grad better..in that he commands double coverage, freeing up others.
    As long as that other isn’t Bey, receiving yards has no choice but to get better.

    JR? Throwing to TO? lol…oh man..

    ONE REASON IT WON’T WORK…JR’s arm is actually worse than Garcia’s..and Garcia was well known for his off target throws…behind receivers, up high..throws that get receivers KILLED..just annihilated..and TO, in his last year with the Niners, stated “IF HE STAYS, I’M LEAVING”..and refused to work with Garcia because of his horrible play.

    JR? lol…oh man..that would be fun watching TO get in BlubberButt’s face and call him out, ESPECIALLY if JR pulls another “throw WR’s under the bus” bit.

    Ok, Sake time. I got into it when I was stationed in Japan, Reekochit.

    Another young player who’s going to have to step up is M. Bush. Now that everybody’s favorite whipping boy, Huggy Jr. isn’t around to hog all his carries. He’s going to have to be ready to carry the load along with Dmac.
    He also needs to get himself in shape. He did not endear himself to Cable when he begged out of the game after four or five carries. Even coming out as a rookie, even though they had him rated as a first round pick, the predraft mag I had criticized Bush and his conditioning. Called him soft and pudgy because of an aversion to lifting weights.
    He also didn’t endear himself to the coaching staff when he balked at moving to FB, temporarily, due to injuries. Football is the ultimate team sport, and he put his own interests ahead of the team. I remember a certain future hall of famer, who had already been a league and Super Bowl MVP, making that switch for the good of the team.
    So, Michael Bush has a lot to prove this year as well.

    ===================
    Oh geez…yeah, why? 7 week trip..
    Want details on our Eurailpass?
    Through Italy? Monaco? France? Germany? All of Great Britain? Ending up with 3 weeks in Scotland?
    Why? is that supposed to mean something? It doesn’t.
    Big deal..I went to Europe..whoopee…who cares?

    It’s not a big deal..many people have..and to them it’s not a big deal.

    Why is it to you? Why do you feel so special that you wife was able to afford to BRING YOU somewhere?

    You’re still a loser..and your comments wondering where I’ve been, proves it.

    Technically, it’s a Saturn, not a vette.
    It’s not a CEO, it’s a real estate director, lol.

    You were close though.

    Check out his web page..you’ll see, lol

    And Kelli? Honestly..of all of your pictures that I assume you have..that can NOT be the best pic you have of your wife.

    Just can’t be, lol…not possible.

    but i agree with you BUCKEYE michael bush must be 1000 yard rusher or damn near close to it for our teams success this yr

  • tharris236

    WOW, the Raiders actually made wise decisions in releasing Warren, Walker, Ellis, and letting Cornell Green walk. Maybe a voice of reason has been in Al’s ear and he actually put batteries in his hearing aides and turned them on…. Now if he’ll dump Russell or get him to restructure and get Mcfumbles to restructure, Kelly to restructure, and DHB some stickum.
    Ellis and Warren could be back at a cheaper rate if someone better can’t be found.

  • ohioraider

    Here you go Norco Bob, I’ll fax this to Alameda for you:

    Hey Al, you old douche bag, why don’t you shuffle off into the sunset and let a real owner run the team for a change. You fugin old puke.

    While your at NB, you can tail him with your nose up his ass. This is our product, we consume it, we’ve been loyal, and we’ll damn well exercise our right to criticize it.
