Boss likes idea of playing for Raiders

Must be the position. Kevin Boss was not a priority for the New York Giants in the same way that Zach Miller was not a priority for the Raiders.

Boss is currently the best free agent tight end on the market. It makes sense that the Raiders, having already cleared salary cap space with the Kamerion Wimbley deal, would be interested in Boss.

At 6-foot-6, 253 pounds, Boss would be more than a consolation prize. He’s been a productive, physical player who has 16 touchdowns in the past three seasons _ four more than Miller has in four. Last season, Boss had 35 catches for 531 yards and a 15.2 average and five scores.

A Western Oregon product, Boss, talking with Rich Gannon on SiriusXM radio, was asked on July 26 about the possibility of joining the Raiders.

“I would be surprised if they didn’t re-sign Zach,” Boss said. “He’s been one of their best offensive weapons since he’s been there. But they definitely like to use the tight end. Zach’s put up some great numbers there so that would definitely be a place I would look at.”

Unconfirmed reports have the Raiders stocking up on offensive linemen _ tackle Stephon Heyer (Washington Redskins), guard Justin Smiley (Jacksonville Jaguars) and tackle Seth Wand (Florida Tuskers).

Heyer said on his Facebook page he’d signed with the Raiders. Smiley has 78 starts in 88 games with the 49ers, Dolphins and Jaguars. Wand played with the Raiders in 2007 and 2008 but played in only one game.

    I’m almost through with the Raiders, and I don’t plan on taking up another team. A lot of people just watch the NFL, and mock their former team for continuing to self destruct. It’s not their fault your team loses every year.

    Kevin Boss:

    Miller one of Raiders’ “best offensive weapons”.

  • BeAlwaysUrselfCommittingtoExcellence2011

    Boss is a championship TE

  • plataynegro

    Grimes is restricted at 1st round level, we’ll roll with Routt, CJ, and the youngsters before we do that.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com RAIDER

    Boss didn’t think the Raiders would be getting him because he didn’t think they’d be stupid enough to let Miller go. His words.

  • raiderdav

    Mista I don’t like your language, I’m a true Raider fan was just being sarcastic, Boss ain’t signing with the Raiders , this is a stupid post, why is Herry trying to get your hopes UP, no one wants to play here, no one.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com RAIDER

    Boss will be wanting to go to Seattle too when it sinks in that Jason Campbell is his QB instead of Eli Manning.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com RAIDER

    MB, will Rod Woodson even have a clip board?

  • ArmChair GM

    Madden Raider has been at his wits end with the Raiders, ready to withhold his support for some years now. His purpose for watching them is simply to watch them self destruct so that he can “mock them”.

    His words not mine.

  • BeAlwaysUrselfCommittingtoExcellence2011

    408 lol….these jcats wont know what u mean

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com RAIDER

    MB, seriously, tell us what Rod Woodson is actually going to do. Be specific. Is he going to teach Routt and Johnson how to play defensive back? Is he going to show them how to cover receivers and stuff? How to tackle? lol

  • BeAlwaysUrselfCommittingtoExcellence2011

    I don’t even really pay attention to what he says, I just get frustrated at having to skim through fifty comments before someone says anything related to football.
