Hue at the Senior Bowl

Hue Jackson has surfaced a couple of times for interviews while in Mobile, Ala., for the Senior Bowl.

Jackson told Bengals.com he planned on reaching out to the fan base in Oakland and although he couldn’t comment directly on any interest in wide receiver Chad Johnson, said of him, “He’s my son.”

CSN Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco caught up with Jackson before Senior Bowl practice for a one-on-one interview during which time Jackson broke no new ground in terms of staffing.

    The little I know about the Senior Bowl players the Raiders are looking at…

    Allen Bailey: Projects as 3-4 end best. Weighed in at 278, so he would be a LDE in a 4-3. Would probably need to trade up to get him. If Seymour bails and they move Houston to 3-technique, Bailey could be a good replacement at end. Tough guy, good motor, stout against the run.

    Roy Helu Jr: Don’t know much, except that he’s 6 foot, 220 and is a physical runner. Possible MBush replacement.

    Casey Matthews: Plays inside at Oregon, probably too light to play to the position in the NFL. Have to think the Raiders are looking at him for the weakside. Had 6 passes defensed and 3 interceptions, so he seems like he could handle the coverage duties.

    I’m ready for Ocho. A change of scenary for him is needed, and there is no doubt in my mind he would improve our team for a few years.

    Things might end with Chad crashing and burning, but I would give Cincy next years 3rd rounder for him if we had to.

    ++++++++++++++++

    I’m with you. I hadn’t liked the idea before, but eff it…bring in Ocho. Give Campbell at least one other legit target besides Jacoby. I have to think HueJax could handle him if anyone could.

    I wouldn’t give up more than a 4th rounder, though. Hell, Santonio Holmes is twice the receiver at this point and he only brought a 5th.

    Speaking of Holmes, he’s a free agent…..though the Jets will probably franchise him.

  • raiderzmaverick

    We don’t need a 3-4 end. We have a couple people who could play that position (although only one of them ever has). What we need would be a 3-4 NT if we were going to switch to it. I don’t like the idea as I feel it’s wasting a lot of talent (our 4 d-linemen are probably our strong point at this time on our defense as a unit).

    What is this……. the empire strikes back?

  • hwnrdr

    Whats up Neil…only difference is that Chad sort of agrees, unlike Luke! LOL

  • imaquaman

    i agree about chad ,we have to get at least one person to catch somewhere close to 70 plus balls if we are going to the next level ,and he’s not on our team as of right now .i just dont see dhb stepping up or anyone else .we need to see if dhb can play corner ,wont have to catch

    Hey Hwnrdr! I can see Hue saying “join me……it is your destiny!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Having a name WR will force Soup to get the ball down the field to his WR’s, and make him “cut it loose” a little more.

    Well, Al looks like the Emperor, so with HueJax as Darth Vader…it all makes sense!

    Especially a guy like Ochocinco/Johnson since he’s never been hesitant about letting his QB hear it when he’s not getting him the ball.

    All for Chad coming.Can’t be any worse than what we’ve got now.

  • hwnrdr

    Difference is that Hue doesn’t have that commanding voice that James Earl Jones (Darth Vader) has…but I guess its good enough!

    Can’t think of a death star joke! anyone?

  • imaquaman

    its gotta be tough to be qb right now for the raiders all wr ‘s are green ,o line dont give ya much time ,and if they do ,hope some one is open ,and then are they gonna catch it ,or dump it and hope for 5 or 6 yards

  • http://www.safc.com/page/StadiumofLightDetail/0,,10281~1706060,00.html neilb

    Chad would work.Would improve other WR’s and especially Miller.Other teams would have to repect the passing game helping Dmac and the running game.Win,win move.All depends on the cost of bringing Chad to Oakland.

  • raiderjhawk

    Isn’t Chad Johnson under contract with the bungals? I sure don’t see us trading them anything for him, maybe we’d get him if they released him but I don’t see Al trading the farm for him…

    “He’s my son,” Jackson said. “I like him as a young man and really admire what he’s done in Cincinnati and I want to stay in touch with him because I have great respect for him.”

    do you think chad is going to change his name if he gets traded depending on his new number
    and now number 81 chad ocho uno lol

  • http://www.safc.com/page/StadiumofLightDetail/0,,10281~1706060,00.html neilb

    Maybe he’ll change his name to the player who was formerly known as ocho.

  • raiderjhawk

    I’d honestly rather they go after VJax if we are going to take a head case on. Plax would be a good option as well, plus you could get him on the cheap.

  • raiderjhawk

    Either way a true #1 WR is a must add this offseason!

  • http://www.myspace.com/copenhagenguns Copenhagen_Fan

    Ocho Cinco is actually totally cool. We need somebody with a personality and tude.

  • raidertbone

    If “Ocho” has changed his name again and his cable show is up in the air (as to whether they re-up it or not), then doesn’t that make him the – wait for it – hanging Chad?!

  • Davy Jones

    “He’s my son”. Makes the whole Ochoci- excuse me, the whole Chad Johnson thing seem more plausible.

  • DeuceDeuce

    according to Wes Bunting…Allen Bailey has been the biggest disapointment…and Cal DL Cam Jordan has been the standout…

  • DMAC

    CSN Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco caught up with Jackson
    ===========
    Look at Big Zack in the background of the interview.

  • DMAC

    Deuce,
    Cam Jordan looks good.

  • Chris in NY

    That DE from Cal that Mayock briefly highlighted on NFL Network last night jumped off the screen to me in those drills. Normally, I wouldn’t put much stock in a snippet like that and none of the other players featured did much for me. But that Cal dude looked extremely long, quick and powerful.

    You guys should know out there. Is he the real deal?

    Not our biggest position of need, but I was real impressed with what little I saw. And I feel like this may be a year to just go best player available across the board.

  • DMAC

    Chris,
    The kid can definitely play.

  • Chris in NY

    I used to like 85 alot but he’s just become an annoying clown who’s not half as funny as he thinks. Plus I think his play is starting to slip.

    I could live with bringing him in and maybe get a little excited about it, but I wouldn’t be disappointed if we don’t.

  • DMAC

    85>Ford
    85>Murph
    85>Chaz
    85>DHB

    Bring him on. Even at this stage of his career, he’s better than what we have now.

  • RaiderRockstar

    bringing in disgruntled players to turn around a dysfunctional franchise seldom pans out …

    Besides, he said he wants to stay in Cincy and he’s under contract for $6 million in 2011

    Lets re-visit this next offseason if none of the youngsters elevate their game (Heyward-Bey, Murphy, Ford, etc)
