    King on IR = 2013 starting punter

  • ottocrat

    Thank you for your time Mr. Parrish, now get the hell out of here.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I would be suprised if Curry is ready after 6 weeks.

  • Just Fire Baby

    LOL at the King love.

    His first game (Dallas) he had a punting average that would have put him DEAD LAST in the NFL in 2011.

    Next game, he has a punt blocked and shows no skill, pooch punting.

    Next game, he hurts his foot with no contact.

  • AmysInCharge

    Parrish was still trying to put his helmet on when The Turk cut him.

  • R8RNAZ

    Gotta develop young talent. King might have it. Better than being left high and dry next year, but whi givves a f..k about next year because 9 10 12 is all that matters today!

    It is the truth.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Explain putting a reserve punter on IR? King is clearly talented, and the ‘next-gen’ Raider punter. They don’t want him being picked up by another team. Lechler off-contract end of this year. Reggie can save another 5M or whatever on the cap.

  • Raidernationdave

    “Terminated WR Roscoe Parrish (8)”

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

    Was he hung or shot?

  • http://raiders.com Klas Tjorborn

    At least we had guy name Roscoe that we can make fun of.

  • YoungAmerican

    I don’t know if he’ll be the 2013 starter, but he at least gives the Raiders some flexibility at the position. He’s talented enough to stash on IR for the year and see what he has in training camp next time around.

  • Raidernationdave

    Next years punter. SL will retire after this year.

  • mcfadden20.

    Damn Underwood was looking good , too bad he got injured on that one that 1 tackle

  • http://raiders.com Klas Tjorborn

    Loved the Lechler but Reggie knows he can’t pay big money to punter. We get one more season at least.

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    I don’t want another punter who out kicks his coverage….

    I understand we may have had 2 of the best punters of all time on this team….but we out punt our coverage too often…

    A punter with a powerful leg might be the most overrated thing in the league….IMO, especially if he can’t pin the returner into the sideline….

  • Raidernationdave

    O will go ballistic if SL’s back next year. DA won’t do that to O.

    #16 spot on

  • 504 Raider

    Turk: Roscoe, put your helmet down. Bring your playbook.

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    Even Al should have known this…

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Also keep in mind the new IR rules are in effect this year, they’ve been agreed to by NFLPA and NFL. A person on IR can come back and play this year within 21 days of coming of IR.

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    Lechler is great at hitting them high and pinning the return man….not speaking out against him….just against punters with powerful legs and no concept of what they need to be doing…

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    King is a perfect example…

  • Just Fire Baby

    Explain putting a reserve punter on IR?

    **************************

    Wel we IR’d Jeff Otis once and put him on the practice squad twice.

    Didn’t mean much of anything did it?

  • Raidernationdave

    From the Raiders web site:

    “The Oakland Raiders Friday announced 22 transactions, reducing the team’s active roster to the regular-season limit of 53 players.

    The team waived 17 players, terminated one veteran, placed three on reserve/injured, and placed veteran linebacker Aaron Curry on reserve/physically unable to perform. Curry is eligible to return to practice as early as Oct. 16, the day after the conclusion of the NFL’s sixth weekend. Once he returns to practice, he will be allowed to practice for up to 21 days prior to returning to the active roster.”

    Terminated?

  • rob_raider

    Nix will be replaced and then put on practice squad. I predicted a long time ago he could stick.
    5 DTs means Seymour could be done.
    Only 5 LBs and 7 CBs means reggie looking for someone to take DVD or chekwa. New LB on the way.

  • Intrepid

    Klas , you still awake?

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Carrier will go to practice squad. If another team doesn’t snatch him. Remember DA said something about not playing some players in fear they perform well and get picked up from waivers trying to stash them on the PS.

  • YoungAmerican

    5 DTs means Seymour could be done.

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

    They’ll be closely monitoring the amount of snaps he takes this season. Not a 3-down player anymore.

  • rob_raider

    I think Seymour may retire.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I still stick with my stance that we won’t bring in anybody of the street who will play anything besides ST.

  • YoungAmerican

    5 WRs makes me think they’re still looking to add another piece in the passing game.

  • rob_raider

    Carrier could be a TE. He’s big and tenacious.

  • Rezinator

    Only surprise for me was Stupar, thought he earned a spot with his performance in Seattle. 11 tackles yesterday…

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Armando Allen (HB) we should snatch up from waivers. Bears crazy to waive him.

    Also, maybe we can try to trade for Pierre Thomas or better Travaris Cadet from the Saints.

  • The Wrath of AL

    Rolling the dice on lonyae miller hope we don’t crapout

  • rob_raider

    I don’t know about a wr. If healthy we don’t need a vet blocking time for the guys we have.

  • YoungAmerican

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

    Not necessarily a WR. I still think the Raiders might be looking at Evan Moore, who was signed as a UDFA by the Packers in 2008. They don’t need a guy who can start, but if Moore and Ford are touch-and-go from a health standpoint this season (like they were last season), they’re down to 3 WRs. Will need someone familiar enough with the offense to be a change of pace in the passing game.

  • rob_raider

    Armando Allen is really good but small. I’d like us to get a between the tackles guy like Michael Bennett. It’s ok if he doesn’t play but if needed he can carry it 20 times. Goodson jones and DMc all injury risks.

  • panzor

    i agree totally hope he’s PS bound

  • YoungAmerican

    Seriously? Michael Bennett is 33, and going to jail for wire fraud.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Thinking also return guy as depth RB.

    I dont like anyone we’ve had returning kicks apart from Ford, but he’s now constantly nicked. Could end up on the bubble ultimately.

  • panzor

    Nathan Stupar i mean

  • rob_raider

    Reggie trying to hold on to DVD and/or chekwa b/c they may be tradable. Frenzies played pretty well as a corner. Lee has played well. McCann made a nice play on the ball and is our return man now.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Told everybody that Goodson wouldn’t be waived.

    I don’t think it was even considered.

  • YoungAmerican

    Kahlil Bell might be the best fit for the Raiders offense.

    That said, I think they intend on getting Marcel Reece involved more than they led on this preseason.

  • Marks hair

    We’re cheating.. underwood & king are fine..

  • rob_raider

    Lol. I meant how Bennett was when he was here. A back u knew could handle it but it was no big deal if he sat.

    They should have taken a shot with Burfict.
