Raiders confirm Campbell deal

The slow news day continues . . .

– The Raiders are confirming the Jason Campbell deal, which was already confirmed on site at the NFL draft.

– Raiders CEO Amy Trask said linebacker Kirk Morrison spoke with Al Davis, who thanked the Oakland product for his services and said the door was always open to him.

– Offensive tackle Bruce Campbell, talked to reporters by conference call, sounded disappointed to last until the fourth round but promised to show up with a chip on his shoulder and prove his he more than a workout warrior.

    the problem with jason campbell is .. hes the black kyle orton , but with a stronger arm.. needs to take off and run more often. and needs to stop being scared to throw deep .

    rams offering shamwow and slapchop for jamarcus russell

    ==========================================================

    If they take his fur coats as well, its a deal. Call adam schefter asap

  • RaiderRockstar

    Hue Jackson + Jason Campbell + two OT’s

    subtract Cable (as play caller), Russell, Fargas, Walker & Green

    offense will be MUCH improved next season.

    defense? ehh

    still need a big mother to plug up the middle

    Kelly/Seymour will be a sad product imo

    Only mistake pick I think so far was picking McFadden ahead of C Thomas??!

    I agree….I think the old man Al interfered on that one and wanted to act like he was doing something! LOL
    =======================================================Well, it wouldn’t hurt so much if the freekn Chargers didn’t trade up to get Thomas….but maybe there was somethign wrong with the guy.

    Regardless, Tommy Kelly, Desmond Bryant, William Joseph and that Chris guy is not an NFL caliber rotation

    ^^^^^^^^
    Houston will be in the mix as well as the 3 tech in the 4-3….without a doubt.

    When Cable says Houston he will be playing some DE, he means in 3-4 alignments.

    The problem with Jason Campbell is inconsistency. He can look incredible and then down right bad. If he can get his game smoothed out, he can be a very solid player.”

    What would you expect from a kid who changed coordinators every year and had to learn the Coryell and then the Bill Walsh offense?.

  • http://www.wix.com/GGEden/ggeden GG

    Raiders pick coming up pretty soon, any thoughts who we’ll take guys?

  • Mistabr0wn

    The problem with JaMeatloaf is consistency and sucking constantly. Campbell is a huge upgrade and your “boy” Russell can take a hike, and take you and tj with him.

    What about this NT space eater fat guy in Round 7?

    ==================================================
    I don’t think the scheme that we are running is calling for a space eater.

    I trust Marshall because the draft has gone well.

    But if the 4 and 5 yard gashes return…we will have to ask why we did nothing up front.

    Let’s give the scheme a chance.

    Seymour HAS to be moving inside. Otherwise you got a bunch of backups in there

    New OC’s were a good excuse for Russell but for Campbell its not a consideration.

  • YoungAmerican

    Disappointed we went with a corner when Cam Thomas was on the board, but it seems that this season there’s more of a plan than past seasons, so I’ll let it slide.

    Still want FB Matt Clapp from Oklahoma, though. Maybe the best available OG or DT as well.

  • raiderbaum

    Jonathan Dwyer Georgia Tech RB

  • RaiderRockstar

    FB Jackson
    C Byers, Cook
    G Carter

    Seyglen, RaiderRon brings up a good point. You hide behind Mayock after you made a fool of yourself and then all other times you criticize Mayock, you and your right tit tj do that.

    And calling me names wont make you less of a joke..
    ===================================================

    I don’t hide behind Mayock, not do I criticize Mayock. You are the joke, and everyone seems to get it but YOU. Which makes you even more of a joke. Now, grown men are talking NFL football. Time to go back to the little kids table mistabrOwndildo.

  • DKnight007

    Plenty of talent our there….maybe another TRADE DOWN depending on who is there soon? haha

    I want OL’S Black, Calloway, Capers, or Centers Olsen or Byers

    Or go POWER RB with Dwyer or Blount!

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Jerry,

    You need to ask Cable about Cam Thomas given our complete lack of players at the DT position…Bryant is rotational…Kelly is serviceable…Joseph & Cooper should be out of the league

  • http://0 Bob Marley

    SNB

    “If he can just be a steady guy. Complete his passes at 60%+, limit INTs and hit the open man…we are fine.”

    He’s completed 60, 62 and 64% of his passes over the last 3 seasons and never thrown more TD’s than INT’s….

    =========================================

    Their situation in Washington is similar to ours in the coaching carousels and bringing in tons of new players constantly. Certainly that hurts Campbell. He’s going to have the same issues here.

  • Chris in NY

    Is Lonyae Miller still available? Him or Blount would be nice. Or another o-lineman like Black or Sam Young if he’s still there.

    ==========================================================

    At this point i would almost rather draft for other needs so next draft there is no way that the team can say they have a guy developing there, or we addressed the two gap dt with (insert some sixth round guy here) and not take the top DT in 2011. Let the initiate whatever “plan” that cable keeps bringing up that he swears everyone will like, and if it fails we can adreess center and NT with our first two picks next year.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Either Seymour moves inside full-time or Shaughnessy is going to the bench.

    Which is it? Houston is here to play DE.

  • DKnight007

    Raiders should be done with QB’s thats for sure….at least for this year!

    190th, no 21 in round 6

  • Raiders4eve

    SnB

    I agree, D Bryant and Joseph are backup DTs. Houston and TK play same position, we dont have a big body, I still think its going to be addressed before its all said and done.

  • RaiderRockstar

    if we’re looking for a Day 1 starter I suggest:

    FB Jackson
    C Byers
    G Carter
    T Black

  • raiderbaum

    dwyer RB from GT

    =====================================================
    That’s basically my position. Let them try to do what they can and think will work. Either it succeeds or it becomes clear that we need help.

    Then next year the 2nd round pick will be a boss NT

  • http://www.wix.com/GGEden/ggeden GG

    NFLN again insisting it’s a 2012 4th rounder for Campbell.

    crap

  • http://ibbahttp://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo249/the408RAIDER/749px-I-420svg.png 4evaRaider

    I respectfully dis-agree SnB….

    at 6-2 300lbs my boy Houston is thee proto-typical DT,imo

  • RaiderRockstar

    Kelly, Seymour, Houston, Bryant and probably Shaughnessy can all play base DE or 4-3 UT

    who can play nose tackle?

    even if we use a 3-4 defense ON OCCASSION, who can occupy 2 blockers and push the pile back or shut down running lanes?

    NOBODY!

    Dwyer just got snagged

    Hopefully he wont start there, but Joseph has the size to play NT.

    Calloway, Carter, Black on the O-Line or RB’s Dwyer or Blount is who I want with this next pick!
