Gradkowski: I could play tomorrow

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, March 15th, 2010 at 6:07 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Raiders quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, having signed his second-round tender and up to his usual gym-rat ways, said he is feeling no effects from the MCL tears in each knee that ended his season in 2009.

“I never stopped working out because I wanted to get my knees healthy and my legs strong,” Gradkowski told beat writer Steve Corkran in a phone interview. “I could play in a game tomorrow. I feel great.”

Gradkowski said he signed his tender Monday and said he’s been at the facility “on and off” since the end of the regular season. The agents for center Jon Condo (second-round tender) and Chris Morris (original round tender) also said their clients had put pen to paper. Antoher reported signing is original round tender Charlie Frye.

Still no word on linebackers Kirk Morrison and Thomas Howard.

Unlike last season, when Gradkowski was simply attempting to secure a roster spot as the No. 3 quarterback behind Russell and Jeff Garcia, he enters the offseason program intent on being No. 1.

“I’m so excited this year because there’s a good opportunity for me to go compete for the (starting) job,” Gradkowski said. “The way I played last season opened the doors for this opportunity. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do. We beat some good teams last season. We just need to become a more consistent team.”

For what it’s worth, and it’s not worth a lot in March, Gradkowski will get at least a day’s head-start on Russell in the offseason program. There was talk Russell could be at the facility as soon as tonight.

    At this point in my life, I can pretty much do what I want to.
    I’ve got nothing to hide from anybody.

    ##############################

    So, for fun, went onto his site..which was his mistake to even list.
    Turns out he has NO BUSINESS, has NO LISTINGS..hasn’t sold anything in a long time…and he posts a page of silly stupid pics, ON A REALTOR BUSINESS WEB PAGE, that is ridiculous.

    Kelli: “duh..see dat top of that head? dat’s me..driving a really cool corvette”..except you can’t see a car.
    Kelli: “We just bought property is Switzerland. That’s my wife surveying the land”…except all it showed was the back of someone holding a purse, looking over a knoll..not surveying..
    Kelli: “dat’s me standing there looking stupid”

    And his wife? uh…well…you know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? Make it three thousand, lol…

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Reactochet, your comments in response to Kell are really long. He only throws a few lines at you. He probably doesn’t even read your comments. What’s the deal?

  • http://www.raiderfans.net Richochet

    Considering he quotes my comments days or weeks later, he reads them, lol.

    You’ll also notice when he gets his ass handed to him is when he replies with the diversion one sentence whimper, hoping my comment will fade away.

    so for fun? I repost it..and watch him squirm.

    Did Kell trade Gruden to a team we’d likely have to face in the Super Bowl?

    Did Kell draft Robert Gallery with a first round pick?

    Did Kell eventually replace Jon Gruden with Norv Turner?

    Did Kell draft Fabian Washington?

    Did Kell hire Art Shell?

    Did Kell draft Michael Huff?

    Did Kell hire Lane Kiffin only to try to get rid of him right after hiring him, losing us a year of productivity?

    Did Kell hold an embarrassing press conference on national t.v. firing Kiffin that people will be making fun of FOREVER?

    Did Kell make Tommy Kelly the highest paid defensive tackle in history at the time of his signing?

    Did Kell retain Tom Cable after improving the team by zero wins, and bringing chaos to the clubhouse with a fight and a consequential police investigation?

    Did Kell manage the Raider to 11 or more losses for 7 straight seasons?

    Does Kell look like this? http://images.huffingtonpost.com/gen/123234/AL-DAVIS.jpg

    You guys need to call Al Davis’s office, not Kell’s. It’s not Kell’s fault your team sucks.

    ^^^^^^^^^^
    It’s funny how morons in here would rather try and rip kell, instead of calling up the Alameda Headquarters and ripping old man Al, Herrera, and Trask, for being the cause of this team being crappy the last 7 years.

    Statement of fact wack job. You see, when you are a psychopathic liar like yourself, you think everyone else is the same way. But, some of us are not psychopathic liars like you. I bought my lst house at age 19 and still own it. Graduated at age 20 with a four year degree from Boulder and that’s nothing. I could go on and on and on. But enough about me. The question still remains, what have you ever done?
