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.

    Seriously? A neighborhood watch?

  • edward teach

    The only thing that will get Mark Sanchez replaced is his own poor play, which would get anyone replaced. That’s the nature of the league.

    Do you think that Ben Roethelesberger or Tom Brady would worry about their job security if their teams brought Tebow in as a backup and short-yardage/ goal-line option? I don’t. Those guys know they can play and wouldn’t lose a minute of sleep over it.

    Stand your ground law in FLA basically allows a white person to accost any suspicious black person in a rich gated community and pick a fight with him, and then be absolved of using deadly force to “defend himself”.

    It’s a terrible law, and it opens up all sorts of abuse of civil rights.

    Mark Sanchez isn’t even in the same strasophere as those two.

    Sanchez ended last year badly, got booed, and now has probably the most famous and popular backup QB behind him now.

    Not good for the Sanchize.

    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.

    Still though…my dad’s neighbor back at home hated anyone darker than him (he’s from Tennessee and as Blue Grass as they come). One year, one of the property owners rented out to a black family and they were cool. Yeah they had parties and stuff, but who didn’t at that time? One day, one the “guests” was leaving with his duffle bag and my dad’s neighbor called the cops saying he was suspicious and probably gonna steal something…
    I stopped talking to the guy, but then his kids and those around the neighborhood had a “talk” with him…he’s still prjudice, I’m sure, but doesn’t react on it as he used to!

    Then the only thing for Sanchez to do is justify the confidence that the Jets have shown him this offseason, and play like a bonafide NFL starter.

    Improving the quality of your backup QB is something virtually every team in the NFL should try to do if they can. We saw first hand what can happen if you don’t.

    Not sure which is more sad, the actual killing of the kid, or people using his death as a way to grandstand their political views (on both sides).

    They haven’t charged the shooter, because he was covered in blood from getting beat on by the kid. Eventually he absolutely will get charged with something, probably reckless manslaughter, they are just reviewing the case currently.

    Doesn’t make it right, but the law is the law. Deadly force IS ALLOWED in states, in self-defense situations. Was this self-defense? Probably not completely, but if his face is lumped up and he is bloody, harder to say it isn’t than it is.

    A hispanic guy in Florida just got off on 2nd degree murder charges, when he chased down his burgler, and stabbed him 10 times in the middle of the street and killed him. All charges were dropped.

    The South, SMH. What a weird place.

    “Felon” was a very good movie made several years ago that starred Val Kilmer as a guy that went to prison for a long time because he killed an intruder that had broken into his house. He went to prison because he killed the guy on his lawn instead of in the house.

    Worth a look if you have the time.

  • hwnrdr

    The laws here makes me scratch my head, but it could be worse. like in other countries where they don’t care if you get killed…no one will find you! Unless you’re Liam Neeson from Taken!

    Wow did the saints ever get hit hard. Thankfully Allen’s name hasn’t been mentioned. I do recall at his presser, when he fielded questions about his character (there were 2 questions inparticular) he had as they say in poker, a “tell”. Scratched his nose or cheek. Just something I noticed at the time and thought of again with all the bouty-gate talk the past couple of days. I hope he is a stand up guy and the players bust ass for him.

    Is Pat Lee known for being a top-flight ST guy?

    Maybe he is, usually these guys aren’t well known outside of their own teams fans.

    Ford (he also plays on offense)
    We don’t need to 5 roster spots for specialists.

  • hwnrdr

    That is true JFB! But reading about him where he was used more in ST then on D, I’m guessing that is hwy he was signed! We’ll find out soon, and I hope he works out and not signed to be another camp body, which is what some fear!

    RR- Here is my take!

    Tracy Porter is key man. We really need help with our DBs. We are really weak in the deep thirds of the field.

    Mike Bush seems to be one of the best available RBs. If not him than Cedric Benson. Ced is a hard north south runner.

    Any LB off the list seems like an upgrade right now.

    Not sure if we need a Vet WR and the best ones are off the board. If we could predict the future and Ford was hurt often as last year maybe Ted Ginn but he drops to many balls. We have had enough of the drops and we have DHb to stretch the field. Ted can return punts and kicks though.
