Ford signs contract

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, July 19th, 2010 at 12:45 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders have signed fourth-round draft pick Jacoby Ford, a wide receiver out of Clemson who will also compete as a return specialist, according to their Twitter account and team Web site.

Draft picks still to be signed are first-round pick Rolando McClain, second-round selection Lamarr Houston and seventh-round choice Stevie Brown.

Probably of bigger consequence than the Ford signing _ for Week 1, anyway _ is that Tennessee has reportedly reached an agreement which would ensure running back Chris Johnson reports to trainnig camp on time.

That means barring injury, Johnson and his 2,000-plus yards should be available to take dead aim on the NFL’s 29th-ranked run defense, although Oakland has made some bold moves to upgrade in that area.

    Jacoby Ford will get his REPS at KR and PR for those of you so obviously needing some help with Raiders TC roster.
    And I happen to prefer returners who hold onto the ball.

  • JLofty

    BigTed we need 40 times and contract sizes to know who the Al and Cable will keep.
    I’d say Higgins better pull his head out or he’s gone.
    Watkins has shown some flashes and Miller was kept on the ACTIVE roster with a broken leg or whatever for a whole season for some reason.
    Bey and Schillens start, Murphy rotates heavily. Watkins may be #4. After that it boils down to who plays ST.
    Ford, Miller and JLHoudini will fight for P/KR duties. Else goes to practice squad unless they can hit and show something warranting being around.

  • BigTed707

    I’ll take:
    1)Schilens
    2)Murphy
    3)Heyward-Bey
    4)Higgins
    5)Ford
    6)Watkins
    and If they keep a 7)Hubbard – the big boy from Wisconsin.

    Practice Squad: Adeniji and Miller

    I’d Cut:
    Bodiford, Figurs, and Jonathan Holland.

    Well yeah, this is just pre-camp time killin’.

    I agree with JLofty that 5,6,&7 should go to the best ST play.

    I hope Henderson can provide 20-25 solid plays a game.

    Watching The Raven Raider game on NFLN its easy to see why Morrison is gone. Harder to figure why he stayed so long.

    That guy should be a polititian. Says all the right, positive, go getter stuff, but the proof was on film…

    Seems like former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell has a humongous ego and refuses to lower his standards. Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times tweeted:

    “According to a source close to former Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell, he has no intentions of playing in the UFL,” Aaron Wilson wrote on his Twitter page.

    The former first overall pick either feels he’s too good for the UFL or is embarrased to go down to what I call, the minors, to prove himself to be an NFL quarterback

    Russell probably thinks he’s a great player, and that those who think he should brush up in the UFL should get over it. That’s what he was told the past 3 years by someone paying him millions of dollars.

    I like the new NFLPA president. He already has a fund going for the players while they’re locked out, and the players are already saving according to a plan the union has lined out for them. He refuses to budge until the owners open the books and prove they’re running out of money, as they claim. Breath of fresh air to see some real union leadership in this country for a change. Hopefully it’s the beginning of a trend.

  • Plunketthead

    Players saving according to a plan?
    I have a new plan that will make you save?
    hahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
    hahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahhahaha
    I bet for every one that saves, theres 4 with money problems. How many baby mamas does DMAC support with a monthly ten grand check?

    Private sector unions are shrinking by the day while public unions grow too expensive to support.
    Almost every strike I have seen in my days winds up as a minus for the members and a plus for the corporations, attorneys, and union officials.

    Good move on his part – not going to the UFL. But for other reasons. He’d no doubt fail there too and confirm to everyone what we already know – He’s a #1 LOSER.

    Screw JaLoser & the horse he came in on. Just remember, no matter what color you paint a turd, it’s still a turd. JaLoser was our turd that we were stuck with for three years. The patient is feeling better now that we’ve taken a dump.

    i think CHaz Schilens is gonna be Monster this year!
    LOuis Murphy is gonna show his tremendous skills!
    even DHB#85 is gonna blossom into not only a deep threat but i can almost guarentee he will be a sure-handed catcher.
    If we sit and think about it, we have a possible 3-headed WR monster.. along with Z.miller.. i wish we had a better 2nd TE and also a better FB… Neal anyone?
    I hope Campbell is the answer man i really do.. its been ages since the glory days of the complete QB(rich gannon).. I jus want the Raiders to punch all those teams that have embarrassed us throughout the yrs IN THEIR MOUTHS.. i.e. Chargers, Giants, Ravens, JETS, Patriots, Dolphins, Colts, Saints.. Sh!t i can keep goin..

  • MiamiBornRaider86

    To My fellow Raider Nation.. I ask you..

    Which AFC West Division Team do you Dislike/Detest the MOST!! and why? has to be a reason for the madness..

    well I’d like to start by sayin I personally have a huge dislike for the.. yup.. u said it.. SAN DIEGO “SUPER CHARGERS”…. LMFAO! WEAK! Lets finally take our reign back from these weakos who are almost a mirror image of our team.. i want the raiders to put them out of there misery and then they’ll drown like the Chargers of old.. Then I would definitely say the Denver Broncos are the 2nd biggest nemesis.. though out of all 3 division foes, i admire them the most.. tough.. but i dont even think the are on our level!
    LETS GET THIS AFC WEST DIVISION TITLE BACK BOYS!!!

    notice.. i did not even mention the KC Chiefs. due to the fact that they are IRRELEVANT.. S Berry will be Spectacular tho.. I’ve had him on my board since his sophmore season B)

    I’ve never seen Figurs, Ford, Adenji, Hubbard, or Bodiford play!

    Watkins & Holland can take a long walk though..
