Wisniewski joins coaching staff


The Raiders announced on their Twitter account that former Pro Bowl guard Steve Wisniewski has joined the coaching staff as an assistant offensive line coach.

Wisniewski was on the staff of former Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh last year as a strength and conditioning coach.

How seriously do the Raiders take their legacy?

They announced Wisniewski as offensive line coach on their Twitter account and even had quotes.

Offensive coordinator Al Saunders was merely added to the coaching roster on the team Web site with no announcement.

Wisniewski replaces Chris Morgan, who was the offensive line assistant to line coach Jim Michalczik last season. Michalczik is returning to coach at Cal and Morgan was not retained.

In other news, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha has pulled out of the Pro Bowl and will be replaced by Champ Bailey. Asomugha, though, at least got a trip to Honolulu out of it. He was with the AFC team Wednesday.

    OK, mock draft time:

    Version 1.0
    2nd-Orlando Franklin*, OG, Miami, 6′7″ 315lbs
    3rd-Casey Matthews, OLB, Oregon, 6′1″ 235lbs
    4th-Kendrick Burney, CB, UNC, 5′9″ 180lbs 4.47s
    5th-Cedric Thornton, DE, S. Arkansas 6′4″ 300lbs

    *assuming Lil Wiz, Gabe Carimi and Kyle Rudolph are off the board by pick #48.
    Ridiculous. Where’s the run support? Tight end? Makes no sense…Probably exactly what Al will do.
