Parrish practicing with Raiders

By Steve Corkran
Tuesday, August 28th, 2012 at 11:59 am in Oakland Raiders.

Wide receiver/returner Roscoe Parrish is at practice, wearing No. 18, and taking part in all the drills, only hours after he signed with the Raiders.
Parrish is wearing the number last worn by wide receiver Louis Murphy. Parrish’s wore No. 11 with the Buffalo Bills. However, that is taken by kicker Sebastian Janikowski.
Given Parrish had been active and health-free, he is exempt from the three-day acclimation period afforded injured players. Therefore, he is able to practice right away, as well as play in Oakland’s game against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night.
We won’t know until after practice how coach Dennis Allen intends to use Parrish and whether Parrish will play Thursday.
Kick returner Jacoby Ford still is recovering from a left foot injury. Punt returner Denarius Moore is fighting through a lingering hamstring injury.
At this point, it’s not a stretch to envision Parrish handling all return duties in the regular-season opener against the San Diego Chargers on Sept. 10.
It’s also not out of the question for Parrish to remain in the fold when Ford and Moore return to full strength, at least on punt returns, his specialty.

– Ford, Moore, defensive tackle Richard Seymour, linebacker Aaron Curry and center Stefen Wisniewski are not practicing. Tight end Richard Gordon returned to practice after missing a stretch with sore ribs.

– Offensive coordinator Greg Knapp and defensive coordinator Jason Tarver are slated to speak with the media this afternoon. So, expect plenty from them in a later post.

– Parrish also is scheduled to address the media soon after practice.

– Today’s practice is the final one before the roster cutdown to 53 players Friday. Therefore, the game Thursday night will be the last chance for players to make a favorable impression upon the coaches.

    Hey, I’m not a tit man (especially on guys) but if you’ve got the Det game on tape take a look at DA’s A cups when he’s going to shake Schwartz’s hand after the game.

    I’m telling you – DA’s got some ta-ta’s.

    Chris Carr!!

    Then again, had Ed Reed been drafted by the Raiders and put into the Al Davis system no one would probably know his name right now and he would be selling Farmer’s Insurance in Miami……

    “Tits” Allen

  • oakfoshow

    Al has drafted and sighned more great corners than anybody else in the history of the nfl.

    Parrish couldn’t make the team in SD and they are desperate for receivers. I dont see him as anything more than a temp fill-in until Ford and/or Moore are healthy. At most, I suspect he will be the guy cut in week 6 to make room for Curry to come off the PUP.

    jake Locker, christian ponder, brandon weeden, tannehill, gabbert have ranged between lees than spectacular to out right awful during the course of games.

    LOL @ Mistic, this is why people rag on you. You go out of your way to say negative things about white QBs but never black QBs.

    A-cup Allen & the Raiders!

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    it may be the scheme (rolls eyes), but Kelly is a much improved player and Houston is wicked fast..

    So far, no one has run the ball down our throat…over to MR, he’s the expert there..

  • TxRaider210

    How bout whiteys Brees, Mannings, Rodgers, Ben…you know the QB’s who win SB’s?

    If thats all you can think of,you must be about 12 years old.
    +++++++++++++++++

    Name some since 1990……thats 21 drafts Al had to work with….2 good CBs.

    Are you talking about Mike Haynes? That was quite some time ago to give Al credit for being some CB genius.

  • oakfoshow

    I agree,190 would be good.One more year to develop than watch out,will be pretty good.One of the hardest posistions to learn in the pro game.

  • http://raiders.com Klas Tjorborn

    There are a lot of guys in prison named Dennis Allen. Google his name and lots mug shots come up.

    Very tough to learn, it may be tough for him to gain weight as well. He ought to work on tackling technique and fielding catches.

    This morning you contradicted me and said that you liked the pickup.

    Reality tells us that Parrish played only two games last year ecause of his ankle and hasn’t played that many games over the last 3-4 years.
    It also tells us that the dischargers got him through free angency from Buffalo who couldn’t wait to lose him and after a look the dischargers dumped him too.

    He can’t cost much though so it doesn’t hurt to look.

  • eastoaklandraider

    What up gents. 234 great analysis about TP totally agree. Knapp has ONE year to have this O flying high with all the talent at his disposal. With Roscoe on board I predict our ST to have AT LEAST 4 tds this year.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    We’ve certainly had our share of great Corners.

    Willie Brown, Lester, Haynes, CWood.

    Just a great call to take Lester in the 5th and move him to Corner. Al at his best.

    Some other goodies. Terry McDaniel for a while. Eric Allen. Doctor Death (RIP). Nnamdi.

    Al had good success identifying CB’s that could play ‘bump and run’.

    Really hurt the Raids when the NFL legislated against the bump and run. That was a Raider trademark, and once upon a time we had the horses to run it. And run it we did, WAY more than anyone else.

    Became a joke later on. But that heavy man-to-man stuff was fun to watch and really worked well at one time.

    A-cup Allen & the Raiders!

    DA cup.

    Chris Cooley available.
    Raiders TE position muddled.
    Cooley the character type that our GM and HC love.
    Only 30 years old, so could have another 2 solid seasons in him.
    Broken finger last year, not a long-term type of injury.

    =========

    Ordinarily, i’d say that ship has sailed, and we had gone through this with Kevin Boss. But Cooley ran a slightly similar deal over in Washington and just might add something. I think organization worried if he’s injury prone and on a guaranteed deal – but TE is non-existent. The upside is we wouldnt have to give anything up to get him. Kahlil Bell might get a look, too.

    Not that this has anything to do with his coaching ability – but has anyone noticed that for a skinny guy DA has tits ?

    Dude is close to needing a bra.

    Really weird.

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

    No, havent noticed it. I think thats a little TOO observant of you as well. Lets just wins some games – he could be a tranny for all i care. Really NOT weird, good coach, hopefully.

    Al had his problems drafting guys with speed,but the one thing ive learned studying this team over 37 years is not to ever question Al’s picks on corners.

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

    Yeah, that Washington guy was good, and so was Philip Buchanan….so glad we took him in front of Ed Reed!

    I can think of 1 good CB Al Drafted since 1990 and that was a no-brainer in Woodson….and 1 guy he drafted and converted into a CB and that was Nnamdi….otherwise who are we talking about here?

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

    He missed on SEVERAL players and Ed Reed, and Ben Roethlisberger were two of the glaring ones. I think the way fate works, the Raiders EASILY would’ve been a different team, had they taken Ben instead of Robert Gallery.

    Hind sight is 20/20, but it appeared he front loaded the team with dozens of questionable free agents. That decision to pick up Ronnie Jenkins over Rodney Harrison was abysmal. I mean we could go on and on… Sebastian Janikowski over Shaun Alexander, etc.

    I think the Raiders hadn’t been in the top 7 for a long time, and without a GM that was trusted, a lot of picks and badly put together shaky head coaching regimes.

    Once again, someone who can’t tell the difference between the words “win” and “fire”. I will fight my own battles, but dont make me fight someone else’s. Ha Ha
