Raiders sign WR/PR Parrish

The Raiders just confirmed the signing of veteran wide receiver/kick returner Roscoe Parrish. Practice begins in about 15 minutes, so we shall see if Parrish also has arrived, passed his physical and is ready to join his new teammates.
The Raiders released offensive lineman Zach Hurd to make room for Parrish on the 75-man roster.
Parrish was released by the San Diego Chargers on Monday, and the Raiders pounced in a hurry. That’s understandable, given kick returner Jacoby Ford and punt returner Denarius Moore are battling through lingering injuries.
Parrish, 30, is a seven-year veteran who spent all his time with the Buffalo Bills. He caught 134 passes for 1,502 yards for the Bills.
However, he made his biggest mark on punt returns, where he averaged an impressive 12 yards per return. He also has the ability to return kicks, so he might be asked to handle both duties as long as Ford and Moore are on the mend.

    Marcel can handle the load for a few weeks if need be imo. Owen blocking for him, it’s all good. I would prefer marcel running the ball over crisco hands.

    When has it been temporary? If dmc and dr.jones go down for a while we’ll have to add a rb off the couch.

    ——————————

    I agree with that list. I think that Gordon/Ausberry are on the bubble if Reggie finds a TE he likes.

    24 offensive players (TE is the only bubble spot for a FA)
    26 Defensive players (I think we find at least 3 FA’s for depth and special teams.)
    3 special teamers (Condo, Jano, Lechler locks.)

    absolutley, I’m just saying to do that when the time comes. Unless there is someone worth adding now of course.

    Just watched the game last nite. They looked pretty good. Got a better feel for the offensive scheme. TJ has me feeling a lot better, Streater is our #1 possession WR, imo.

  • itzSteve

    McCann is on the bubble to make the team as a DB depending on how Roscoe works out.

    How many players can we put on the practice squad?

  • zopi

    I have a feeling that Seymour will not last this season, with arthritic knees or tendonitis, whatever, not much of a loss or worry, tough. Looks like there are plenty of better DTs available. Seymour would probably be better off retiring if his knees continue to be his issue.
