Raiders confirm Spencer, Carlisle returns

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, March 19th, 2012 at 4:39 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders confirmed the addition of cornerback Shawntae Spencer and also announced they had re-signed guard Cooper Carlsile.

Carlisle has been one of Oakland’s most durable players over the last five seasons and last year did not miss a single snap. He was cut last week when the Raiders were dealing with salary cap issues, but told his agent, Frank Murtha, they wanted to bring him back.

In the meantime, the Raiders signed Mike Brisiel of the Houston Texans _ also a right guard.

Carlisle has been exclusively a right guard in his NFL career. If Carlisle or Brisiel are being considered for a switch to left guard, it’s conceivable Stefen Wisniewski could move to center. If not, Oakland has depth at a position that previously had none, other than third-year lineman Bruce Campbell.

    If a Team doesn’t plan on playing Tebow all the time, he’d be a terrible waste of roster space, and coaches’ time…for a guy who may have to change positions to even have a chance to be on an NFL roster in 2-years

    sounds perfect for Hue Jax !! he loved to waste roster spots !!

    Since we’re talking about dogs. I have a confession…

    Last week I tried getting my neighbors pitbull (Brutus) high. Blew hella smoke in his face. Don’t know if it worked or not.

  • Seymour Bush

    My bad. Whiners are trying to trade for Teblow right now.

  • DMAC

    SI.com’s Peter King expects the Broncos to begin working on a Tim Tebow trade as soon as Tuesday night.
    The Broncos want the narrative to be limited to Peyton Manning without the Tebow circus hanging over the franchise. ESPN’s Adam Schefter insists a trade “will happen,” and interested parties include the Jaguars, Packers, Dolphins and “maybe more.” Schefter does add that the 49ers have been “scratched” as a candidate for Tebow.

    The guy gets ugly wins WHEN the defense is holding the opposition to under 14 points. He has one or two scoring drives in him per game (that’s all the quota that God has granted him . If the D is giving up 21+ per game, do you really want to count on Tebow to consistently give you more than 3 scoring drives per game? I definitely do not!

    —-
    Sorry, at work and stepped away for a bit. Zymurge, I don’t want the guy to start and he may not even play much but I say if he’s out there, he’s a good change of pace guy – think a quick fullback who can also throw – defences would hate it!

    Not to mention we already have our own Tebow already on salary… Terrel Pryor.

    The Broncos are set to visit with New Orleans cornerback Tracy Porter on Wednesday, according to an NFL source. He is visiting with the Titans on Tuesday.

  • YoungAmerican

    Guys, I have a feeling Porter is not checking out physically. A few teams have passed on him – and given his production and his age, that doesn’t make sense without his health being a factor.

    Sign Porter!!!

  • DMAC

    Sign Porter!

    Back up plan = Trufant

  • http://www.raiders.com Raider O

    YA,

    I think it has to do more with the deal he is demanding. I think team’s don’t want to give him a long term contract due to his history with Injurues. Money could be another issue.

  • R8ER MIKE

    i agree with YA on this one…. something is wrong.
    i think if all was good we wouldnt have given him the chance to leave town without a contract.

  • YoungAmerican

    I actually like Kelly Jennings as a backup plan to Porter. Not as high of an upside, but actually played better than Porter last season.

  • inonewordraider

    how do you think Moss will feel about Tebow throwing to him?

  • DMAC

    Porter has already visited the Bengals and Titans while drawing interest from the Raiders and Rams. He would likely replace Andre’ Goodman in Denver, starting opposite Champ Bailey.

    Nope. Our secondary is set (with the possible exception of Gio or another backup).

    The Jets are the new joke of the league. That franchise is a flipping mess.

  • YoungAmerican

    Highly doubt that, after signing two players who barely saw the field last season, the Raiders view their secondary as “set”.

    Spencer wasn’t a system fit for SF’s new defense and Bartell had a broken neck (which has since healed and checks out medically). Too many other needs to sign those two AND Porter when we’re up against the cap.
