Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010 at 8:51 pm in Oakland Raiders.
According to what appears to be a registered Twitter account for former Denver Broncos first-round draft pick Jarvis Moss, the Raiders have their answer to Trevor Scott’s season-ending ACL injury.
A message on the registered account of JMossVsJarvis says: “So it’s official! I’m an Oakland Raider! God is good thank him.”
Of course, nothing is really official until the Raiders say it is. And until Scott is placed on injured reserve, creating a spot on the roster, moves that could be announced when the club convenes Wednesday to begin preparing to face the Miami Dolphins.
Scott is a former first-round draft pick, the No. 17 overall selection out of Florida in 2007. He never exhibited the pass rush skills the Broncos expected and he was waived last week with 3.5 career sacks, going unclaimed.
The Web site Broncotalk includes former teammates responding to Moss signing with Oakland.
If Moss indeed comes aboard, that means Quentin Groves will could remain a weakside linebacker instead of switching back to defensive end, a position he played ineffectively in Jacksonville.
Moss wouldn’t be the first player to break news of being a Raider on Twitter. Groves did the same thing after being traded from Jacksonville.
