    Stupar’s name kind of surprised me.

    #48 i imagine Underwood will be a candidate for the new IR rule…being eligble to return to the 53 man roster.

    Nobody dropped a solid te?

    Stupar sucked the whole time even the first part of the game last night. Then suddenly he started getting involved. Light went on. He could come back after DVD or chekwa are dealt.

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

    Evan Moore. More of a TE/WR hybrid player, though.

    As I mentioned above, he was initially signed as a UDFA by the Pakcers in 2008, during McKenzie’s tenure there.

  • Just Fire Baby

    DVD or Chekwa aren’t being dealt.

    Who would give up ANYTHING for them?

  • YoungAmerican

    If the Raiders are still looking to add a DE/OLB, Adrian Hamilton was cut by the Cowboys. He was impressive this preseason.

  • Raidernationdave

    Nope….just a bunch of solid deuces.

    No way we roll with 7 CB’s and 5 LB’s. 5dt’s makes sense b/c of Seymour.

  • Raidernationdave

    Impressive players don’t get cut.

    Reggie aint done gents, would have liked Kilgore or Stupar to make it though.

  • Just Fire Baby

    When Curry comes back, they will probably drop a DB, as the same if Jacoby can take over the return role, McCann could be cut by the end of September.

    List of Players Who Shouldn’t Get Too Comfortable:

    Jamie Cumbie
    Coye Francies
    Lucas Nix

    Cumbie and Nix could easily be re-signed to the PS if they’re bumped off the roster for someone else.

    RegMac is bold. Keeping King is smart. But keeping the OC is unbold.

    Like I said in my post game report live from Seattle last night, I’ll repeat, I want to see the Raidahs butt roast the chargers to dispell any doubt that Knapp is screwing up the offense. A butt roast is a must. A flat out roasting. Nothing less will be satisfactory.

    :mrgreen:

    Saints have 5 tailbacks on roster and DA has major ties to the team. Maybe Reggie working on something for Pierre Thomas or Chris Ivory?

    Also backup center/guard Matt Tennant was waived. A pretty solid player IMO.

    Some Roster breakdown

    Qb’s let’s hope Palmer doesn’t go down or will be a long season
    Rb’s same with Mcfadden
    Te’s Not solid but not need to.
    OL’s above average starting unit below average depth
    Wr’s I think they are overrated i’d rank them about 20 from 32
    Dl’s keeping 5 dt’s means they are not confident in Seymour’s health still team’s best unit
    LB’s Wheeler has pro bowl potential could be best player by the end of the season i don’t like Burris too much but he won’t see the field against passing teams
    DB’s cb’s easily team’s worst unit, after Bartell there are a bunch of number 4 and 5 cb’s sad to see Pat Lee is going to be the nickel corner.
    ST’s after Lechler and Jano this is a highly suspect unit.
    Best case scenario 9-7
    worst case 3-13
    It means we could easily go 6-10 and won’t be surprised.
    Depth is a big concern here

I’m with you all the way but everybody knew that about me, but Mr. Green is in taking no prisoners mode. Cool.

    ”stop saying that”lol

    Hello all, making my debut on this site, although I’ve been reading it for awhile. Raiders team could win the West or be dead last and a top 5 pick. Have to stay healthy because depth is a huge issue, especially at major skill positions. The Gut has a bit of work to do and this roster will not be the one to start the season. It’s round 2 of our offseason bargain hunting.

    I think Seymour may retire.
    _______________________________
    He should retire but will hang on to collect $15M this year before signing with NE Patsies to retire as one. I sound like a broken record but we have AD to thank for Seymour’s contract situation to put us in this kinda bind. Another genius move which in terms of worst AD moves doesn’t even come close to his all time masterpiece of Walker’s contract but close.
