Raiders sign WR/PR Parrish

By Steve Corkran
Tuesday, August 28th, 2012 at 10:53 am in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    I don’t like the Goodson trade. I want Beast Campbell back.

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

    Why? Campbell was awful.
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!

    Dude just turned 24. We need a backup OT, and the kid is worth developing IMO.

    But, did you come up with the idea of the flux compasator after this event?

  • hwnrdr

    Anyone think that Goody gets cut?

  • DennisAllensVisor

    Chris Cooley would be interesting.. Dont see us carrying 4 TEs though..

    Dont see us cutting Myers, Gordon or Ausberry either.

  • Marks hair

    13. Thats exactly what i thought..

  • Just Fire Baby

    Is Cooley really a TE?

    I thought he was kind of a Marcel Reece, bybrid HB type guy.

    _____________________________________________

    Kinda wonder if Bruce Allen tried to trade Cooley to the Raiders…few weeks back.

    Hasn’t he been both? Under Gibbs he was a H-back. But thought he has done well as a traditional TE?

    He’s a hybrid yea.. But more TE than FB, where Reece is more FB/WR than TE..

    ++++++

    the Mayor has benn looking good IMO. He will be dropping that miniker by game 2.

    You drive a hard bargain….so we can call it a deal.

  • Rezinator

    Cooley is a pass catching TE. Runs good routes, has great hands, nothing special on blocking. He is injury prone and has had a couple of concussions in career.

  • Thec

    My No 6 Jersey came in last monday. I will be wearing it during the disc dismatling on sept 10th.

  • DennisAllensVisor

    What about Cooley taking Goodson’s spot.. With Reece the 3rd RB?..

    RB – Darren McFadden
    - Taiwan Jones
    FB – Marcel Reece
    - Chris Cooley
    – Owen Schmitt
    TE – Brandon Meyers
    - David Ausberry
    - Richard Gordon

    +++++++

    Reece is not a RB IMO…

    Why? Campbell was awful.

    +++++

    The past and current org thought so. the Semi’s never saw enough to make a decision one way or another.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    cooly is more of an h back, i know the popular term today is hybrid. jason Campbell made him a star he has done nothing since jc’s departure, is concussion prone and has nothing left.

    we dont need him

  • AmysInCharge

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

    as much as i cant stand it when people blast the raiders in the media, they could be on to something.

    Funny though gannon was in the instant upgrade club when then trade went down, I guess he has been reading my post and seen the light lol

    Guys…Goodson isn’t going anywhere, he is Charlie Garner reincarnate but bigger!

    I would sacrifice Ausberry or Gordon if Cooley has any tread left. He would be a nice addition to the passing game.
