Pears cut, Brown signed off practice squad


Stevie Brown made the roster after all. It was simply a week late.

The Raiders released offensive lineman Erik Pears, re-signed Monday, and promoted safety Stevie Brown from the practice squad. Brown was released in the initial cut to 53 players, but only after he believed he had made the team and was even interviewed by the media about it.

There were unconfirmed reports Brown was cut by Davis over the objections of the coaching staff, who would have preferred the seventh-round pick over second-year safety Mike Mitchell.

    Gentlemen, it’s coming. The greatest Raiders forum is about to launch. As I have said, I will keep you guys posted.

    You’ll be able to do things that you can’t do on here. Such as access all the posts by a certain user., with out having to dig through all kinds of threads. Each and every user will have his/her own home page so to speak.

    It’ll be up soon men. Hope to see you there.

    Thats all nice and dandy, but if I ever should leave here, it would because you have implemented the post I have posted here for nearly 4 years on record, otherwise, no thanks…

    each year there are 2-3 guys who try to get us to ‘their’ forum, that said, I applaud your effort..

    makes you wonder if the raiders had some idea that another team might have been sniffing around brown and they just decided to cut a substandard o-lineman and thus protect a player they prefered and is cheaper. sure makes for a lot of d-backs on the team. god, when was the last time a 7th round pick got this much cyber ink?

  • I assume Robert Gallery are in play then, otherwise its just a sign to how ludicrous this franchise are…

  • J Hill
