TE Boss in Napa, prepares for first practice as Raider


Recently acquired tight end Kevin Boss has arrived in Napa, and he is exptected to practice with the Raiders for the first time this afternoon.

Before that occurs, Boss is scheduled to hold a news conference on the practice field at 1:30 p.m., two hours before practice. We will file a report about what Boss has to say about signing a four-year, $16 million contract, how he envisions fitting in to Oakland’s offense and why he chose the Raiders.

Boss caught 119 passes for 1,600 yards and 18 touchdowns during his four NFL seasons, all with the New York Giants. The Raiders signed him to replace Zach Miller, who signed with the Seattle Seahawks last Tuesday.

    I am just happy Bush reported to camp and with the addition of Boss I am feeling a lot better about the roster than I did a week ago.

    I believe all the major pieces are now in place. As long as they stay relatively healthy and the O-line & D secondary can play just above average this team should be PlayOff bound for sure!

    No way I would want to get rid of either Murphy or Chaz when they are primed to make huge leaps in production…. these young receivers aren’t static entities. They are progressing and will do more than they did last year. The added benefit of staying with these young guys is that we are building towards something greater in the future, in addition to developing chemistry with the QB… we suffered through the growing paiuns with these guys, it would be ridiculous to bail out now that they are coming into their own…

    Yes the OL is the biggest concern…I have a feeling Satele will start the season at C and Barnes at RT. Wiz may start at RG until he gets experience…
