Raiders add yet another cornerback

The Raiders signed three-year veteran cornerback Pat Lee to a one-year contract, according to NFL Network.
Lee, 28, spent the past four seasons with the Green Bay Packers, so he is someone that new Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is very familiar with.
Lee appeared in 32 games in 2008, 2010 and ’11. He sat out the 2009 season with a knee injury he suffered the previous season.
Lee has started only one game in the NFL. He spent most of his time with the Packers as a core special-teams player. He figures to get a shot at cornerback with the Raiders, who are seeking to replace jettisoned starters Stanford Routt and Chris Johnson.

    I do actually recall the game that Pat Lee came into the game for Woodson.

    He was picked on relentlessly from what I remember.

    I don’t think he did well fro what I remember. Maybe it means nothing.

    I hope.

    There was another recent case of abuse of the “Stand your Ground” law when a Florida man shot and killed a skateboarder who was loitering and using abusive language in the nearby basketball courts. Instead of calling the cops, he took matters into his own hands, then used the “Stand your Ground” law as his defense.
    +++++++++++++

    You try and make it sound as if the defense worked….but the truth is that case has not been decided, so you have no idea if that law protected the guy….and you have no idea if that law will protect the Hispanic fellow who shot the young kid either do you?

    I suggest letting it all play out in court before condemning the law.

  • J Hill

    They haven’t charged the shooter, because he was covered in blood from getting beat on by the kid.

    Is that true?

    Sounds like the youngsters in So Cal to me.

    Dakota,

    There was ONE play late in the 4th qtr last night that showed me that we are headed for another ring.

    Did you see Sessions tell Kobe to get the hell outta the way as he was coming free from at the left elbow?

    Waved him outta there and got the ball to GaSTUD at the elbow who promptly swished it to put the Lakers back up 11. Kept feeding GaSTUD and we extended the lead.

    Fisher and Blaker used to do nothing but keep giving the ball to Kobe. How long have I complained about that?

    We’re on the right track bruh, and there is NO WAY Sessions isn’t a Laker for long time.

  • J Hill

    Wassup O,

    Yeah I was just poking at you a little bit with that email last night, lol.

    I still hope Barksdale can beat Barnes out, but I do think it’s a good backup plan if Barksdale isn’t ready.

    J,

    Did you read my post from last night about the email?

  • http://www.raiders.com Raider O

    J,

    lol
    As your email states, I don’t think they gave him $2 million to ride the bench.
    Barnes = Starting RT.

    You might be right….about this year. I can live with Buss pinching pennies next year if we can win one this year. Actually, I think the only way Buss brings back Sessions and Barnes next season is if we win a ring and he is forced to try and defent it….otherwise one, or both of them are gone.

    Luxuary tax + revenue sharing = Lakers cutting back on talent in the coming years.

    It is true… and precisely why charges have not been filed against the shooter yet…both parties were inv in an altercation as evidenced by injuries (broken nose) of the shooter / documented in the police report.

    Still the shooter was following the young man when the altercation occurred. Note: shooter is half black and half hispanic with a Jewish last name…would make it less of a white on black type crime than it is being hyped to be in the media.

    Shooting is still ridiculous and should have never happened, but likely charges will not be filed per FL’s law and voter ammendments.

    Did you guys hear the 911 call?

  • Dakota

    Lol, from what I read Barnes’ deal is worth UP TO $2 million….meaning he probably has some incentives in there that gets the contract to $2 million, so there certainly is room there for him to be moved to the bench.

    And besides that point, you guys are talking like $2 million is big money or something! lol, come on now. 2 years ago the AVERAGE salary of offensive linemen was $1.267 million….that’s not starters average, but the average of all o-linemen two years ago! Nothing about Barnes’ UP TO $2 million dollar salary means he is going to start.

    It will be up to the young guys to take his job away, but they are not at some disadvantage due to Barnes’ paltry $2 million dollar salary.

    Dakota,

    Why pay an OL $2 million when you lack cap space, if you don’t intend to start him? What you said makes sense in normal situations, but when you spend 20% of your available cap space on one player while you still have other needs is a good indication that he will start. IMO

  • Dakota

    Man, I need to proof read my posts…”defent it”…..say what?

    I suck at typing….35 words per minute back in the day…..

  • http://www.raiders.com Raider O

    We could have added another OL for the vets min to compete with the youngsters, and still have enough cap space to sign another player.
    We could have signed an OLB who will start for $2 million.

    Bush signs with Bears!

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

    By retaining Barnes, you might eliminate another backup position, because the man can play all the positions on the line except center. If you let Barnes go, you still have to sign other guys to fill in the roster, and unless you go with rookies (we have no picks to speak of) then you are looking at somewhere between $500k and $1 million for veteran minimum players….if you can find any….

    Also, who knows how Barnes’ contract is structured? It may have been done in a way that if one of the young guys beats him out, Barnes could be released and a part of the salary might be saved….who knows….Bill Williamson reported that the contract was worth UP TO $2 million, so there might be savings left in there in case the Raiders decide Campbell or Barks won the job.

    Go be backups for the Bears you Puzzies!!!

  • Dakota

    Bear Bush? Love it.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Drew Stanton wants out. Whether by trade or release, he wants out.

    The Jets paid Stanton a $500,000 signing bonus as part of a one-year, $1.25 million deal. But the Jets also reportedly promised Stanton that they would add no other quarterbacks, and that Stanton would be the No. 2.

  • Dakota

    4 years, $14 million….$7 million guaranteed for Bush.

    Yeah, no thanks.

  • http://www.raiders.com Raider O

    That makes sense Dakota.

    Sign Portet!!!
