Report: Raiders agree to deal with veteran returner

Raiders coach Dennis Allen apparently wasn’t kidding when he said Monday that, yes, it’s possible that his kick returner wasn’t yet on the roster. A few hours later, ProFootballTalk.com reported that the Raiders agreed to terms with return specialist Roscoe Parrish.
The Raiders would not confirm nor deny the report, per beat writer Jerry McDonald. However, the move makes perfect sense, given lingering injuries to primary returners Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore.
Parrish spent his first seven NFL seasons with the Buffalo Bills before he bolted for the San Diego Chargers in free agency this offseason. For whatever reason, the Chargers released Parrish when they pared their roster to 75 players.
Parrish returned 135 punts (12.0-yard average, three touchdowns) and 29 kicks (23.6 avg., no touchdowns) for the Bills.
Parrish, 30, missed all but two games last season with an ankle injury. He also plays wide receiver, with 134 catches for 1,502 yards and seven touchdowns to his credit.
If the deal is consummated the Raiders will have to make a roster move, given they are at the maximum 75 right now.

    I don’t mind the Parrish signing, but I would have preferred Gaffney.

    Feels like the Sept. 10th is a long way off. I’d almost rather skip this game on Thursday. I’m ready to “Move On” from preseason. Like DMAC has made it this far without being hurt, just coast him to the opener. Guys like Burris, -who need the work, don’t get me wrong- have been playing nearly full games so far. Guys like him could get burned out by mid season. He will have played 20 games by the end of the Reg, and if we go to playoffs…..I’m just blabbing

    Hwnrdr,

    What’s on the typical Hwnrdr tailgating menu?

    Just curious.

    We always have Tri-tip, chicken (flop back and forth between drumsticks and breasts), some Korean Ribs (sometimes), lemon pepper chicken wings and some lumpias! Also with Hennessy, Beer and whatever else comes around!

    ——————

    OK. When I fly up for a game this year with my chic and her brother, Im stopping by your setup to tailgate with you guys. We’ll throw down $10 each to pitch in and we’ll bring our own 24 pack of Coors Light.

    Sound good?

  • http://profootballtalk.com Raideraholic (AKAHairyBush)

    I just got to watch the OAK/DET game and here are my observations-

    -Good to see Taiwan take advantage and seize the backup roll.

    -DMAC keep it up!

    -Streater, What can I say? I like a good underdog story, apperently so does Palmer.

    -Wheeler is going to put up some #’s this year

    -T.Pryor did everything in his power to make me eat my words, well done kid!

    -Criner, good to see we have some depth at wideout

    -DHB, I’m liking what I’m seeing. I also notice the way he blocks on running plays-Respect!

    -Our speacial teams need help! (Ecspeacialy coverage units)

    -bring back Justin Miller J/K

    -Little to many penalties for my liking

    -Wish Stafford would have been in game little longer so we could better gauge defense, although Shaun Hill is respectable-I guess.

    -What was up with not throwing to Megatron?
    Was coverage that good or was he not part of the gameplan to keep him healthy?

    -Carmona is a Jabroni but nice job with a 56 yarder off the dirt.

    -Palmer will be fine

    I’m sure there’s more but overall more positive than neagative. Good sign in the 3rd preseason game where it actually matters a little bit.

    Go Raiders!

    True story: I’m at my friend’s barber shop, he has an Arab barber, white guy comes in and they start talking. White guy says he is in the military, so I asked him where he was from since most of these guys are not CA natives, and he said he was from New Mexico. The Arab barber gave him this weird look and then he said “but you don’t look Mexican”.

    The Washington Post believes Chris Cooley could be traded, but not “outright cut.”
    Cooley is due a burdensome $3.8 million for a backup, but has taken consistent reps at fullback this preseason. Nevertheless, if Cooley isn’t “outright cut,” it will almost certainly be because he’s agreed to a sizable pay cut. It’s a good sign he made it past first cuts on Monday. No one is going to trade for him.

  • Charlie

    Regardless of potential you have to be able to play to add value. Seymour and Curry are classic examples of the Patriots and Seahawks getting rid of poor value.

    We will carry an extra Dlineman when we cut down. Not necessarily an extra DT. We can shift Houston inside.
    Seymour will not be in the NFL next year. We will let him go out on his terms this year. We got screwed on the Seymour deal. Terrible value.

    Curry will get cut.

    Moore will make it this year. Streater, DHB and Crinor will be getting all of the snaps early in the year.
    Ford is a niche player that with Parrish on the team may be expendable. Far too injury prone and can not function in the red zone.

    After Friday’s cuts we will be active with other teams cast offs.

    Get ready for some surprises.
