Raiders sign Walter McFadden

The Raiders announced the signing of cornerback Walter McFadden on their Twitter account Monday, as well as on Raiders.com

A fifth-round draft pick out of Auburn (No. 138 overall), McFadden will be given a chance to win a job as a nickel back, according to coach Tom Cable.

McFadden is the third draft pick to sign, following third-round pick Jared Veldheer and fourth-rounder Bruce Campbell, both offensive linemen.

According to a source familiar with defensive lineman Lamarr Houston, contract talks are expected to begin this week.

Others in the draft class include middle linebacker Rolando McClain (first round, eighth overall), wide receiver Jacoby Ford (fourth round, No. 108), linebacker Travis Goethel (sixth round, No. 190), cornerback Jeremy Ware (seventh, No. 215) and safety Stevie Brown (seventh, No. 215).

The Raiders historically are one of the NFL’s better teams at getting players signed and in to camp on time, with you-know-who the notable exception.

Last year’s top pick, wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, missed the first practice but was good to go for the afternoon session.

    Dell,

    Thank you sir. I can’t allow myself to get another C. It was an insult! I’m trying to get into Haas, so I need to impress them since they only take 240 students out of 2400- 4000+.

    “I expect Johnson to keep grinding in his attempt to become a player the value of his idol, Deion Sanders. He has proven that he has the capability to be the Pro Bowl talent he wants to be, but he needs to continue pushing himself to be better. He says, ‘I never want to say “I made i” because once you say that, you settle. I always want to advance my game each and every time I step foot on the field.’”

    “In Al’s defense, it is very likely he had the options of available tenders list turned upside down and thought he was offering Routt the lowest possible tender instead of the highest. I don’t want to rush to judgment yet.”

    16 days until training camp …

    think we’ll see any surprises?

    maybe a few more additions or subtractions before preseason???

  • BigTed707

    J Wigg,
    Routt hasn’t had an INT in the last two years. Those shots are either old, or drops. Check the stats and put the pipe down.

    Dell, there is reason for excitement and hope….expect much more of this now that Tom Cable has been demoted and his lover, Fargas, has been pushed out of the door:

    BigTed

    My personal opinion is Routt is not suited for the slot receiver. I believe his skills are better suited for the CB position and better yet, the position should be to cover the Z receiver. I don’t think his technique is suited, also for cover one, which he has a tendency to over react to, his movement back, is not strong enough,and he has issues with the bump or hands on the receiver for the first 5 yards.

  • Raider Dell

    I’ll be back.

    Later Nation!!

  • BigTed707

    279 – I agree, But I still think CJ37 is even better at the CB position than Routt. Routt has the tenancy to fall down and draw flags, whereas CJ37 is good for at least 3 turnovers a season.

    If Huff or W.Mac take over at nickel, and Aso stays healthy, where does that leave Routt?

    and a ton of passes defensed.

    more pressure on the QB and an improved run defense means more opportunities for the secondary

    If Routt gets beat out by a rookie 5th rounder I think he’s out. tenders aren’t guaranteed, are they? I think thats why so many players (like Thomas Howard & Elvis Dumervil) balked when they were assigned one

  • RaiderRockstar

    MR: shut up

  • http://www.nataliegulbis.com/ Richochet

    And when I say Al should take notes, I mean regarding how George did whatever he could to win. Not have a heart attack. I’d never go there.

  • BigTed707

    284 – Not sayin’ we should cut him, I’m all for depth at the DB pos, If anything cut Eugene.

  • http://www.nataliegulbis.com/ Richochet

    Rockstar you’re a loser who’s in here around the clock, every single day. Haven’t you ever like gone somewhere for a day? Took a vacation or anything? And what’s saddest about it is that you’re here all of this time actually supporting Al Davis and the Raiders. If you were here all day to just destroy Al, it would be one thing. But to spend at least 12 hours a day defending Al Davis? Wow. And, not ONE single person has been convinced of anything you say about Al. One huge fail. Your politics are stupid, too. Ass backward redneck who’s becoming more irrelevant by the day. You don’t count. You’re a flyover.

  • RaiderRockstar

    all Eugene has to do is beat out Stevie Brown & Jerome Boyd (not much competition) unless Jeremy Ware, Joey Thomas & Joe Porter get an audition at FS in addition to CB …

    ——————————————————

    Heck RRS went all the way back to 2007 with some of his propoganda.

    WTF ?!?!?

    Point is, no matter what YOU think of Routt, he is in line for a starting position opposite Nnamdi, and CJ is in competition with McFadden for the nickel, lol.
