Raiders sign Porter (not Jerry)

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010 at 1:08 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The National Football Post is reporting the Raiders have signed cornerback Joe Porter, citing a league source.

An undrafted free agent out of Rutgers in 2007, Porter spent time on the practice squad of the Green Bay Packers in 2007, during which time the secondary coach was Lionel Washington.

He spent last season with the Las Vegas Locomotives of the UFL.

He apparently has “Raider speed,” winning the indoor and outdoor 200 meter championship in the Big East.

Following the UFL season, Porter spent the last month of the NFL season on the practice squad of the Cleveland Browns but was not signed to a “futures” contract.

The Raiders have announced no transactions on their Web site since signing defensive tackle Ryan Boschetti on May 17.

    No, Nnamdi, it just so happens I don’t remember Al’s projector press conference, other than how much of an ass he made of himself, which is what everyone outside of his loyal fan base remembers about that press conference. It was Al’s worst hour ever. Solidified that he’s lost it. That being said, the Cover 2 did not get torched against Denver in week 1 of ’08, DeAngelo Hall did.

    Exactly, my anger is directed at the person who deserves it, not a bunch of powerless fans.

    Why aren’t I cheering for the Raiders? Cheering for what? We were 5-11 last year! Same record the year before that. 4-12 the year before that. 2-14 the year before that. Shall I continue?

    you’re comical.

    I’m happy to go into this season and see how McLaine and Houston help our D. See how the 2 OL we got for good value shape up. To see how much better we will be with Campbell at QB and not that albatross Jamarcus Russell who deserves the fans anger. He is the only one in the whole melange of fans, Al Davis, and players that wasn’t trying.

    wah wah wah…you are a broken record, and that record wasn’t even a hit.

    We’ll see if you still have that optimism after they choke in week one. Like I said, I’m just ahead of you. You’ll be saying the same thing I’m saying now once the season starts and reality sets in.

    Speaking of records, which owner recently set one for consecutive 10 loss seasons?

    Al Davis

    You my friend are the one that jumps on the bandwagon week 1 and buys a Jamarcus jersey, invests all his cred, and then bails by week 3, tries to recover his cred and realizes he can’t.

    That’s why you are angry, because you exposed yourself.

    You are a NON-RAIDER FAN! Deal with it, get over it, book it. PRINT THAT!

    I already said I wasn’t a fan. fan is short for fanaticism. I’m not fanatic about this organization. Al Davis has sucked for too long, and I don’t believe he’s going to turn it around. Why are you trying to convince everyone of something I already admitted? What’s it to you whether or not I’m a Raider fan?

    that only matters to you (and Koolkell) nice company to lump yourself in with.

    My advice is to bet with your brain, not your heart, that’s the only time it matters. The rest of the time be a Raider fan and wear your gear, and take on all comers.

    If your man enough that is.

    obviously the only reason you are on this blog is to try to shoot fish in a barrel, fans of a team with a 7 year record of 10 or more loses.

    Or on the bright side, we taught you to properly use the word “whether” rather than…….”rather”.

    Good for us……….LOL Go away!

    Ha ha. If I’m man enough? lol. Too much. I never knew being a Raider fan meant you were a man, too, or vice versa. The Raiders haven’t looked like men on that football field for the past 7 years, that’s for sure.

    Well, this isn’t your blog, buddy. So find something new to wish for.
