Captain Kirk off to Jacksonville

The Raiders dealt middle linebacker Kirk Morrison to Jacksonville to get the pick to draft Clemson wide receiver Jacoby Ford in the fourth round, according to the NFL Network.

On his Twitter account, Morrison said, “Good morning. I’m a Jacksonville Jaguar.”

Also sent to the Jaguars was one of their two fifth-round picks, No. 153 overall.

Morrison’s fate was sealed the moment he got an original round tender. Due a $2.512 million salary, Morrison was not going to be retained as a reserve in the wake of the selection of Rolando McClain in the first round.

    Too many decent players available..but I think we´ll go DB next…

  • Mistabr0wn


    Get ready for a TE next.

  • Al is an idiot taking players nobody has heard about, when our DT is waiting ripe for the picking.

  • bcz24

    There goes the Terminator

  • Guy

    I hate this why would they pass on their only hopes of stoping the run. I guarantee Warren will be better than this guy.

  • Raiders4eve

    wow this was a bad one!!!!

  • ratfarts

  • Thec07

    John conner goes next pick…lol

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    I don’t want to hear anyone talk about the MLB this year. It will not be his fault….he will have to wrestle with tackles etc…and won’t roam free.

    Lol, yes, i just meant same skill set, big arm, terrible mechanics and footwork, holds onto the ball too long, but is exactly what the Raiders tried getting out of Russell.

  • aig

    Yup this is Al’s thing now. No doubt about it.

  • GG you got that right. Al is an idiot!!!!!

  • the_big_one_of_83

    but we still need a QB

  • And a FB and a guard and a DT.

  • 30 year raider

    nothing wrong with todays picks got great value in campbell needed a game breaker in the return game got one in jacoby ford… added some depth at cb

  • kseven

    C’mon, no draft could have gone this well indefinitely. They had to let Al participate. At least he has had some success finding DBs.

  • BIG ONE..we actually have Kyle Boller, Grads (although hurt now) Frye and the dude from the Bills….plus Jamarcus. No QB from the 5th round is going to beat those guys out anyway.

  • utahraider

    3o yr- your right, we made some smart pick up’s. cable already suggested that they were ok w/ what we had @ dt.

  • GG

    Carroll is totally wiping his ass on this year’s Draft

  • utahraider

    have @ dt

  • bcz24

    Losman went back to the UFL

  • That Kirk trade was stupid too. Giving him up to move up one round in the draft stinks. We could have just kept him which would have been better for the team’s depth.

  • new englandraider

    i like moving kirk. i’d rather keep howard out of the two of them. howard made more plays in the backfield than kirk

  • Mistabr0wn

    All you guys b!thcing about Routt dont complain about a DB we need one. If we take a TE next go ahead and break something!

  • new englandraider

    whats the next pick? 153?

  • 30 year raider

    got to go jeff owens dt georgia
