Raiders sign linebacker Bosworth

By Steve Corkran
Thursday, August 16th, 2012 at 10:43 am in Oakland Raiders.

Korey Bosworth, a first-year linebacker out of UCLA and the nephew of former Oklahoma All-America linebacker Brian Bosworth, signed with the Raiders on Thursday.
Injuries to incumbent starter Aaron Curry and rookie Mario Kuhn left the Raiders thin at linebacker heading into Friday night’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Bosworty is expected to accompany the team to Arizona for the game, the Raiders said in a press release.
Bosworth, 6-foot-1 and 230 pounds, originally signed with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2010. He spent parts of the 2010 and 2011 training camps with the Detroit Lions and played in the Lions’ preseason opener last week against the Cleveland Browns.
Bosworth’s twin brother, Kyle, plays for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    I believe it puts him at 9th (as far as CB’s) in the league.

    —————-
    I think Bartell and Spencer will both out play Routt, got them for pretty cheap too.
    ——————-
    I wish I shared your optimism
    I will still say routt is very talented and gets a bad rap.
    Spencer hasn’t given me any reason to believe he is an NFL corner. I think Bartell can be a servicable/good CB.
    We need help at defensive back, plain and simple!

    ————–
    I can agree somewhat, but I’ll wait for pre-season to end to be sure of that.
    ————————————-
    In a perfect world some team that is deep at CB cuts one soon and we use some of that cash that Big reg stashed away for a rainy day!

    —————-
    Best believe Reg has his eyes on players who will be cut in 2 weeks, for sure.

    I have been asking this question for a while now:

    Anyone know what the penalty is for not reaching the salary cap floor? Teams like the Jags for instance.

    Or is that rule not in effect yet from the new CBA.

    Just curious

    John Elway says Peyton Manning is the same passer as always
    ——————-
    of course he is going to say that, He would like an idiot for signing him otherwise.

    No problem man, the game is 9 my time so guarantees I’ll be half drunk, at least.

    I’m going to have to get up at 4am to watch game on Friday. Either that or do some coke at the club.

    From Stanford Routt’s website:

    “Driven, Electrifying and Passionate are the words that come to mind when describing standout athlete, Stanford Routt both on and off the field.”

    Doese’t say who quote is from. Me thinks it’s from Stanford himself.

  • TBRaiders

    I went to the Routt site you guys linked above and I clicked on the QnA. You can tell he asked himself and answered all the questions. What a piece of work.

    Beeech Dawg, your Jams are big here in Sweden. You may be the next Hasselhof!

  • http://raiders.com Klas Tjorborn

    Beeech, we love your early 90s flavor in the Land of Ice and Snow. Its wicked awesome!

  • Marks hair

    Should sit dmac..

  • theghostronin79

    I’d be so relieved to hear that Goodson is gonna play tomorrow.
    Fingers crossed.

  • Marks hair

    Da said the guys that practice this week would probably play..

  • http://InsidetheOaklandRaiders Goldie7

    Korey Bosworth may be the answer we need in the LB position since A. Curry is out. I am looking forward to our Friday night game against the Cards. We can only improve. Thanks for thee update Cork! Good looking out!

  • The Beeech Dawg

    The simplest way to hump a ton of Swedish hizzies is to spray on a bottle of Drakkar Noir and get your pube patch waxed

    Then when they start calling all their friends over to ride the Beeech Lawg, I’m always like “Hey Swedish Babe, that filet mignon and lobster tail ain’t gonna cook themselves”

    Which is a subtle suggestion to run to the kitchen and make me dinner, if you know what I am talking about

    I know it’s just preseason…..but I don’t know how well I can watch 3 more quarters of “Dive plays” that gain 2 yds.

    I wanna see some explosion, speed, and make a guy miss.

    The Beeech Dawg is Hasselfof 2.0, holla!

    Klas is out. Getting off work and then getting off. Party like a Swede!

    I’m more than sure Goodson will be ready, since he did practice and looked fine out there. Taiwan is almost there, doubt he will get time though..

  • The Beeech Dawg

    I’m pretty sure Klas is really just Albert Bigelo Puss beating off on his keyboard

    Trust me fellow PMPP members, no matter what angle he takes I will not allow him to submit a hip hop rap in the hopes of joining our deadly blog gang

    We have to protect our internet cred, holla

  • Raiderbuck

    The only thing good about this signing is that Coach Allen knows this guy and thinks he can help.

  • TxRaider210

    Bosworth is just another body we didn’t have before, don’t see how it would be bad to give him a shot.

  • McFaddens_Sneakers

    Agree TxRaider, with curry out for who knows how long we need all the LB help we can get.
