It’s official, DVD waived, Hanson signed

Share

The Raiders confirmed the waiving of second-year cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke and the signing of veteran cornerback Joselio Hanson on Monday.
What’s more, Hanson is practicing today, wearing No. 29. He is projected as a nickel corner, someone capable of covering the slot receiver, much as he did with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Hanson is one of six new cornerbacks on Oakland’s roster this year. It’s worth noting that Oakland’s top five cornerbacks from 2011 are gone: Stanford Routt (Chiefs), Chris Johnson (unsigned), Lito Sheppard (unsigned), Van Dyke (free agent) and Chimdi Chekwa (Raiders practice squad).
The other new cornerbacks on Oakland’s roster are: Phillip Adams, Coye Francies, Ron Bartell, Shawntae Spencer and Pat Lee.

— Adams is wearing No. 28, linebacker Keenan Clayton No. 57, cornerback Coye Francies No. 31 and offensive tackle Willie Smith No. 79.

— Center Stefen Wisniewski returned to practice after being sidelined since Aug. 13 with a calf injury he suffered against the Dallas Cowboys.
However, it was Alex Parsons working with the first-team offense and Colin Miller with the second-team offense.

— Wide receivers Denarius Moore (hamstring) and Jacoby Ford (foot) and linebacker Aaron Curry (knees) are not practicing. Curry and Moore worked with a team trainer at the start of practice, off to the side. Ford wasn’t spotted doing any working out.

— Defensive tackle Richard Seymour practiced for the first time since he appeared in a game against the Arizona Cardinals on Aug. 17. He has been sidelined with a sore knee.

— Wide receiver Juron Criner is at practice. However, it’s obvious that he is at less than full strength. He ran pass routes but he appeared to be limping quite a bit. We shall seek an update from coach Dennis Allen in 90 minutes or so.

— Today is Oakland’s first practice since Aug. 28. It also marks the beginning of preparation for the San Diego Chargers in earnest, with the regular-season opener a week from today.
The Raiders practice today and Tuesday, before taking a day off Wednesday. They return for practices Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

    DHB will be fine. When he first got here, he was terrible. But he’s progressed very nicely over the last couple of years.

  • 89052RAIDER

    Streater and Criner can actually catch. DHB has peaked. RM will move him before season’s end. Why do you think they drafted Criner and brought in Streater considering the lack of depth elsewhere? DHB will go the way of other scholarship guys. He may fetch a 5th round pick.

    “There were a lot of tough moments in the beginning, a lot of thinking, a lot of pain, just feeling like everybody had forgotten about me. I started hating everything around me because nobody was talking about me anymore. It was like no one knew who I was”.

    The Raiders made a “strategic” decision to go to the WCO and ZBS. If Carson Palmer and company can’t execute it, they will be replaced next year.

    The coaches knew who was on the roster and made a decision for the scheme based on what they think is best.

    Players have to execute

  • oakfoshow

    #337 I said when healthy,are you telling me we would not have had a better season than 2010?Besides,the point is Palmer is a horrible fit for west coast.And also we ran both 2010 when hue took over playcalling.Big plays came on power blocking scheme.

  • RaiderLen

    DHB has worked his ass off and it’s starting to pay dividends.

    His confidence and game are on the rise.

    I hope the guy can break off some nice RAC to the house in addition to just reaching out in stride for a 50 yd TD reception.

  • mcfadden20.

    I’m a little worried about ZBS as well but McFadden wasn’t McFadden in his rookie year , he was known as Mcfelldown at that time, sO I’m excited to see how this McFadden does in this Scheme

  • 89052RAIDER

    You bumped your head….DHB will have a better year this year than last…improved every year so far….no reason growth should stop with a better QB…

    Are you special ed? His first two years were an abomination. He has not even grabbed 100 balls in three years.. That is not steady improvement.

  • TxRaider210

    Aso has 14 career picks, 3 being last year and 8 in 2006.

    Aso fit ALs scheme we shall see if he adapts to eagles scheme. and it doesnt help they had a former oline coach as a dcoord.

    Big plays only came on power-blocking?

    Well good thing we fired that idiot that decided to do both when only one was working!!!

  • 89052RAIDER

    Untii the Raiders get a legitimate number one receiver then the offense will sputter. Moore, Criner, Streater could fill that role before DHB. RM needs to continue the scholarship purge. DHB, although improve, is far from justifying a 3rd round pick.

  • oakfoshow

    #348 exactly my point.Stratigic stupid a$$ decision.So lets just sacrifice this season to see if they can it,when what we were doing was working pretty good.

    Being diverse, and executing said diversity is what drives opposing coordinators crazy.

  • chargerschoke

    David Amerson! My Vols touched him up 3 times Friday night! Even the backup WR torched him for a long TD! LOL! Wait until the college season is over before suggesting , we need to pick Codarrelle Patterson WR for UT 6’3 210 4.3 , the next great WR to come from Tennessee! He made NC State look like div 3 !

  • 89052RAIDER

    I love what RM and DA are doing. I think the house cleaning is far from over.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Pretty sure the reason we scored a lot more points in 2010, had nothing to do with who the HC was, who was calling plays, what PRETTY MUCH THE SAME O-LINE was doing in their schemes, and about everything to do with McFadden breaking multiple tackles all the time.

    And when you watch the replays of the 2010 game in Denver, some of the TD’s were on CLEAR zone plays.

    The long Darren TD run, the throwback to Miller on the first drive.

  • oakfoshow

    OK,now before going any further,who is this 3rd round pick your talking about.DHB is going to be a legit weapon this year.Yard after the catch machine.watch.

    Reggie, DA and Knapp did not trade for Palmer. I assure you those three will outlast Palmer IF, and only IF things don’t work out.

  • rob_raider

    um. didn’t reggie say the CB position had to be upgraded when he was hired? he overhauled it. well done. only 2 of the 6 LB’s on the roster were here last year and one was hurt. 3 new DL. and one was hurt last year. safeties are the same. so let’s see. of the 24 defensive players on the roster, 11 are left from last year’s horrendous defense and 13 are new. plus the return of 2 injured guys, so really 15 of the 24 are different. so what it is the complaint? sounds like he cleaned the fuking house!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Here’s the gameday highlights from that Denver game in 2010.

    You can see the big run at the end for McFadden, and watch Satele run to go dive at the LB’s ankles.

    Clear ZBS system in place, putting up the most points in a game in Raiders history.

    seattles ass polishing of the raiders dont mean squat. stfu about that already. if the seaturds lose they can blame it on a rookie qb who will, btw, get exposed for the clueless carroll is. but it’ll be carrolls’ fault cuz he made the choice. so stfu about the win. bfd.

    Ha

    Love Wheeler.

    He’s a baller.

  • oakfoshow

    Who was the qb in 10?And i did not say ALL big plays came from powerblocking.We ran both because hue was transistioning into the powerblocking scheme.

  • “offense was straight ballin last year, best since 02?

    What games were you watchin?”

    We had the 9th best offense in the NFL last year with McFadden out 8 games and 2 different QB’s….if we are not a top 10 offense this year its because Knapp and his scheme took us backwards instead of building on what he had.

  • 89052RAIDER

    He production through three years would be disappointing if he were a 3rd round pick instead of the horrible selection at 7 overall. His number on Stats inc. are not impressive considering the number of targets. He ends more drives than he extends.

    His first 2 years I’ll admit he was extremely overpaid….but he is the type of guy who wants to be great….he works his ass off….is not a prima donna.

    He has not had the best of Coaches/QBs/ or scheme’s.

    This year he will catch 100 balls…
