The Raiders confirmed the signing of running back Rock Cartwright Wednesday on their Web site, adding depth to a thin corps of running backs.

Cartwright was at the facility and will participate in the minicamp this weekend. The Raiders are looking for a third running back to team with Darren McFadden and Michael Bush after cutting Justin Fargas in the offseason. Cartwright has extensive fill-in duty as a member of the Washington Redskins.

    Thanks for the information of Tunnels beach.

    I’ve been to the “Big Island” and the wife has us booked all week in boring Kuai.

    I will check into your recommendation.

    I have plans to fish, sail and be on a chartered cruise around the islands, pretty mundane stuff.

    Dell,

    Sounds relaxing, Kauai is cool, just a little small. I just got back from two weeks on the Big Island, and I swam with a 10′ hammerhead while out snorkeling with the wife. Good times, Kona Brewing Co. beers every day, and tequila every night.

    To Raider O,

    I have the hope and prayers to see you reach your educational goals.

    You are in a demanding major and your time on this blog is been questioned by me, and only me.

    I sure hope your grades are great and you aren’t taking for granted the studying you must do to achieve the profession you have in your future.

    I write this comment with all the respect and endearment in the world, please know I care.

    Please study.

    Two institutional managers I know, just hired two recent grads with three years experience, to a substantial salary($125-150).

    Hit the books.

    Oh by the way, they are just starting to study for the CFA.

    whats up nation?! r we ready for 2010 or what?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  • raidertay

    My problem wit DMAC is that I have never seen him take one to the house. Whether its season or preseason. All that blazing speed and the one you finally broke you got snatched from behind and hurt for the rest of the season. What has it been 3 years and not one long run for a TD.

  • GaterRaider

    maybe not huh, sht its about time al gets somethin right, im still waiting for jafart to get the ax, we dont need anymore tim ewasted on the beached baby whale

  • Raider Dell

    Bri@n,

    Below is the PFT report on why the possible release of Henderson.

    I still believe a younger, more active DT can be effective, whether it’s Bryant or someone else.

    You want a space eater, clog and tie up two lineman. Henderson just can’t do that anymore.

    Oh, by the way, KC has not asked to visit with Henderson, that was just an inquiry by their part as a team.

    Loss to Browns shaped Jaguars offseason
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on April 29, 2010 1:16 PM ET
    Don’t tell Jaguars G.M. Gene Smith that a Week 17 game between two teams with virtually no playoff hope is meaningless.

    “The Cleveland game was a defining game for us,” Smith told Vic Ketchman of the Jaguars’ website. “If the fans need an indication of why some of the changes were made, they need to go back and evaluate what happened in the Browns game. To me that was a defining game.”

    On that day, the Jaguars were pushed around up front by the Browns. They lost 23-17. The Browns only needed to throw the ball 11 times; they had 49 rushing attempts.

    Two starters from the defensive line that day, Quentin Groves and John Henderson, are gone. Jacksonville drafted four defensive linemen to replace them, including first-round pick Tyson Alualu.

    Tony Washington still waits… PFT story.

    I would like the Raiders to bring this sex offender, the guy had issues seven years ago, he was a kid back then, I get that he has done a terrible thing, but bring him as undrafted FA and let him show what he got, who knows, he could be the next Michael Oher we need another OT cause I have a feeling Barnes might get injured again. Get this kid sign him in the practice squad see how he develops, if anyone gets injured, give him he chance.

    I would also like the Raiders to sign Henderson and if he doesnt want to become a Raider, go after the guy the Broncos released J’Vonne Parker DT 6’4 325 lbs at age 27. He could be a snitch, tell us all we need to know about the Donkeys and if he steps it, then he stays if not, we could cut him lose. We still need one more DT, one more C. Mawae is begging for a job, AL should try getting a pro bowl center. Signing Henderson and Mawae would improve this team dramatically, if we taking no old guys route, then sign two undrafted FA C and DT.

    Henderson is a far better idea than Haynesworth…

    sign henderson now !!!

  • Raiders4eve

    RaiderDell

    Henderson gave up by the time they played the Browns, you sign the guy for a one year contract, he will be motivated. Also we could sign him for two year contract filled with incentives, thats how you motivate a big man. Henderson is a wall when it comes to run defense and thats what this team needs.

    ^^^^^^^^
    Exactly….and far cheaper as well!

  • DKnight007

    Now the Raiders need to COACH these players up and instill TOUGHNESS, DISCIPLINE, but keep things FUN!

    Get these players to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE!

  • Seymour Bush

    Two of the last three years Henderson has not been very good. And three of the last four years Henderson has not been very good. If you want a fat ass that nobody else is going to pick up, Terdell Sands is sitting by his phone right now.

  • Guy

    I still want Tony Washington, been saying it since the draft ended. Things have been said about him being a 1- 2nd round talent that would slip to the late rounds because of a small school and the sex thing with his sister, but there is little risk if he is a UDFA.

    I like the idea of signing the Bronoco guy who may be able to be that wide body guy for like a year and tell us their plans haha.

    Jay Glazer is saying Russell WILL be at the workouts this weekend..

    Unlike the d-bags at BSPN, Jay is more often than not correct, with his reports on these types of stories..

    That being said. Someone else posted here earlier that the vengeful Al may just keep Russell around for one LAST chance, then cut him at the end of camp. Making it more difficult for Russell to land on another team.

    I could see that happening.

    Don’t worry about Russell getting hurt in camp. To quote the late MLB pitcher Rob Beck: “No one has ever been on the DL, for pulled fat.”

  • Raiders4eve

    Guy

    Exactly, not only that, the Parker is 6’4 325 lbs and is only 27 years old with no wear and tear, you never know where you might find a gem. As they say one man’s thrash is another man’s treasure. The minimum we get from him is everything we need to know about McDaniels. Then again, remember Aberuyo Franklin who is franchised by the 49ers, the ravens just kept him and the niners jumped on him and he was a pro bowl alternate last year, so you never know how a player might play with another team. I can’t wait for the day Dorsey gets cut, I think the Chiefs are wasting his talent, he clearly never played 3-4 in his life. He doesnt fit that system but with the LSU, he was solid contributor and won the national championship. I think Raiders should trade for him by exchanging a guy like Jay Richardson who is better fit in the 3-4 then 4-3.

  • Guy

    How about Tony Washington though? Does anyone want him? I think him/Veldheer/Campbell could be our LT with one moving to RG and the other going to RT.

  • Guy

    That is after this season and if Henderson does bad again btw.

  • VaRaider

    I know Russell drama is taking everyone’s attention, but I’m curious, has there been any statement from the NFL network about Sapp and his recent run in with the law? Guilt has never been a factor in levying a punishment of some sort. Ex player or not, he still represents and works for the NFL. If anything, he should be held to an even higher standard. Has anyone heard of anything happening? All I see is he’s out for a few months and then he’s back, with nothing said. Why the silence?

    Raiders4eve,

    My comments earlier to Bri@n, are the reasons I would like to see someone else as the DT, next to Kelly.

    You have some valid points, as you stated. I just believe, if Henderson was able to dominate his gaps as he should in Jacksonville system, there would be no reason to release him.

    Henderson was a dynamic duo with Stroud next to him in their Defense a few years back. Stroud signed that FA contract with Buffals and Hendeson has been exposed since. He has slowly been giving up his gaps and has shown no dominance as he once did.

    So the question is, did Stroud make him the player or did Henderson just get worn down.

    Finally to your point. I don’t know about you, but to say your out of the playoffs and there is no motivation to play hard, I just can’t understand that logic. Henderson should play hard for his next contract, no matter what the circumstances are of his team. That would worry me, is he motivated by his play or his lack of pride and team.

    I’m off to the gym, comment back and I’ll check back later.
