Jarvis Moss to replace Scott?

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.

    Alex Smith really?? He is a back up QB at best Shawn Hill and JT Sullivan beat this guy out.

    T-Jax was absolute garbage a few years back.

    Perhaps sitting behind Favre for a year or two did him some good?

    I know he was probably the happiest guy in the Vikings locker room after Chilly got fired, until Frazier named Favre the starter (again – or still)

    Jason Campbell got benched for Todd Collins & Bruce Gradkowski

    yet he’s still our starting QB!

    Donovan McNabb got benched for Jeff Garcia, Kevin Kolb & even Rex Grossman recently … he still starts for Washington

    Yeah , Rockstar,
    I know what your saying but I’m just saying Alex Smith …really ???

    Alex Smith is a bum with the hands of 9 y/o girl

    Moss should only Thank God if he was signed by the Redskins – Danny Boy loves to pay that top dollar for overrated/underperforming talent. Let’s see how he does these next six games.

    JaDrank-us in a Cincy uniform next year would be PERFECT!

    VY would be a better`fit with his buddy HUFF Daddy here.

  • raidertbone

    Not so fast, my friend — all this talk about the Raiders picking up Alex Smith is just a smokescreen. Just remember – both Joey Harrington and Akili Smith are available!

  • Silver-and-black666

    VY is a head case and has never lived up to his potential.

    remember his little suicide escapade

  • raidertbone

    VY ain’t comin’ to Oaktown … Al has had enough of high-priced quitters at the QB position.

    Jarvis goes to a team with (1) a better record that (2) beat his former team by 45 points and (3) he gets a revenge game in just 25 days

  • LA to TheBay

    Where’s the fix, Jerry?

  • LA to TheBay

    Should be a big day for the coaches. Also, we’ll see if that guy Chaz Schilens is going to play.

  • I am Spartacus

    Where the hell is Jerry with his updates?

    true – the Saints released Joey Harrington on September 5th.

    JP Losman (Seahawks), Byron Leftwich (Steelers) and Patrick Ramsey (Dolphins) could also be available this offseason!

    Schilens will be back!…………………. on IR after his first pattern ran in practice
