Giordano returns to Raiders

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, April 16th, 2012 at 9:11 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders announced the signing of unrestricted free agent safety Matt Giordano Monday, who led the team with five interceptions and is coming off the best season of his career in Oakland.

Giordano’s interceptions accounted for 130 yards in returns, and he also had 70 tackles and his first career sack after playing from 2005 through 2008 with Indianapolis, five games in 2009 with Green Bay and nine games in 2010 with New Orleans.

Aside from Giordano’s production last season with Oakland, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was with the Packers’ personnel department in 2009 and head coach Dennis Allen was the defensive backs coach in New Orleans for the nine games Giordano played there in 2010.

A Cal product, Giordano started nine games as starting free safety Michael Huff struggled with injuries.

    546. Goodson does not hold on to the ball. He fumbles to much. Thats why he did not play in carolina

    ==========================================

    With any luck, Skipper can coach that out of him.

    Raiders have a run heavy OC with a bunch of ?? RBs. Could be a disaster.

    bye JC!!

    would have been nice if you dropped to pick #95

  • Just Win Baby

    You guys forget that we are taking Turbin if he’s still there at #95. Don’t listen to Corkran and all his “they’re set at RB” business. If he’s there, Reggie takes him.

    ==============

    Yep. Might even be gone before the end of the 2nd round, depending on how badly a team feels that they need a NT. Jets or Chiefs seem like likely landing spots, if not the Steelers.

  • RaiderRockstar

    @JWB

    if Turbin is the BPA at #95, I have no doubt in my mind he’ll be the pick (regardless of the fact he’s a RB)

    =======================================

    Not if Chapman and/or Ta’amu are still on the board.

  • YoungAmerican

    Wouldn’t surprise me if Turbin was still around at the end of the 4th round.

    His teammate Michael Smith is also a strong prospect – may even be a better prospect than Turbin. Could be a late-round sleeper for some team.

  • RaiderRockstar

    question is, who is the BPA in Reggie’s mind?

    just because Turbin is available, doesn’t mean he’ll be the pick.. Reggie might have 10 other guys ahead of him all available at pick #95

  • RaiderRockstar

    Not if Chapman and/or Ta’amu are still on the board.

    @ Duck & YA

    agreed, if both guys are gone (which they likely will) I think Reggie will draft the best available pass rusher

    YO YO YO, BLOG NERDOS REPRESENT

    Sorry to all you 2 Kewl 4 Skool fans, The Beeech Diggity has been so busy with rehearsal that I haven’t been able to hit the blog until now.

    To answer all of your questions, yes, we did finish choreography for our future multi-platinum hit “Makin’ The Grade (Gettin’ Totally Laid)”.

    And thankfully this new styling cream we’re all using on our pubes is holding up great. I don’t think a tropical hurricane could sway these friggity fresh pube-dos.

    Now’s your lucky chance to check out some unreleased lyrics from Makin’ The Grade, get set to party serious

    Hey Teacher, Chemistry ain’t no page turner
    Maybe you can check the heat on my Bunson Burner
    Say what? You want to miss the faculty luncheon?
    Yeah, I can stay after class for some private instruction *

    * The “private instruction” refers to the teacher pleasuring the student’s weiner

  • YoungAmerican

    I’m sure Reggie has a pretty extensive big board. Kinda need to have a ton of contingencies with the first pick coming at #95. I kind of expect to be surprised by the name Goodell announces when the Raiders hand in their card.

  • DutchRaider77

    Kinda Interesting…ESPN Williamson Blog,
    where would Pryor be drafted?

    OT Andrew Datko (Florida State) at #95

    somebody who will make the Nation say “what the BLEEP?” “who is that?” and then he’ll be a productive player, but not a real superstar

  • RaiderRockstar

    where would Pryor be drafted?

    @Dutch

    I’ll take Pryor ahead of Weeden, Osweiler & Cousins

    thank you
