Ex-Raider Barret Robbins released from jail, lashes out at reporter

By Jon Becker
Tuesday, September 25th, 2012 at 8:02 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Former Raiders center Barret Robbins, was released from a Florida prison Tuesday, where he had spent the past year and a half for an attack on three Miami Beach police officers in 2005, CBS4 in Miami reported.

The station said Robbins appeared unapologetic for his attack on three Miami Beach police officers in 2005. Interviewer Gary Nelson asked Robbins if he could overcome alcohol and drug problems that have plagued him.

“I’m not worried about that and that’s not anybody’s business but mine,” Robbins replied. “That’s something I’ll deal with myself.”

Robbins then broke off the interviewed and uttered an obscenity when asked if he owed the police officers an apology.

    Barksdale being cut was pretty obvious. Another Al pick gone.

    —–

    Plenty of Al picks still on this roster. Lets not be too harsh.

    I’m just starting the countdown.

    The guy at the end of the Raji commercial played a pedophile on SVU a few times.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I wouldn’t be suprised if Barksdale just quit and went on to the next stage in life. He is a very smart guy, he can make decent money without being jerked around from one roster to the next.

    Not enough passion for football. It was obvious during the Senior Bowl and his time here.

    So Al traded our 2012 second-round pick for Barksdale (who’s gone) and Taiwan Jones (who our coach doesn’t trust with the ball).

    Al, we loved you, but…GEEZ.

    Good Morning Nation!!!
    WHo’s this So’oto kid? Any good?
    ====================================

    Pronounced So-otto. Miscast at BYU, he is from So Cal a cousin of Seau. Came in as a TE and then went to defense. BYU just never really knew what to do with him. Good size at 6’3″ 260, 4.65 speed which is ridiculous, and 35 bench reps which is a lot. Was not invited to either the Senior Bowl or combine which would have boosted his stock. In the last preseason game for GB against the KC ones he had a very very good game with a sack, a forced fumble and an INT for a touch down. Kid has skills, basically just a bull rush pass move. I have hope for this guy. Seems like he can play and we DESPERATELY need pass rushers.

    At this rate we’ll only need to purge 1/3 of the roster come off-season according to Corkie’s calculations.

    ——–

    Considering that 25% turnover is standard. A 33% turnover for our team would be very fortunate for us. Especially considering our rumored cap issues on the horizon.

    Reggie is going to have to get some major players to restructure this offseason. A winning season will go a long ways towards making that happen.

    That Barksdale, Taiwan, DVD middle of the draft is looking epicly laughable.

    This is what Reggie is working with. All the Reggie haters need to STFU!

  • http://raiders.com Albert Bigelow Paine

    I think Taiwan Jones still has potential. He could be amazing in the open field.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I look forward to The Reggie having a little coin in the future to spend on players.

    We will get more talented versions of guys like Wheeler.

    Ever notice, that he never really celebrates anything he does, and more celebrates when his teammates do well?

    That is the new Raider player.

    The whole “TJ lost the trust of the coach” talk is just BS started here by semi’s out to get DA.

    The kid has had some badly hurt ribs the last two weeks. Anyone that has ever suffered a rib injury knows how long they take to heal.

    TJ will get some carries again once he’s 100%

    I have a serious man-crush on Wheeler.

    A few semi’s questioned me in the offseason when I said that Wheeler and Burris would make our LB corps, and RoMac, better because they were smarter players than the “athletes” weve had in the past. How right I was.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Taiwan is playing some special teams though, so his ribs can’t be THAT BAD.

    He just isn’t THAT GOOD, unfortunately.

    He can’t block, catch, or run between the tackles.

  • http://raiders.com Albert Bigelow Paine

    McFadden will probably be hurt at some point. We will see Jones then.

    Good Morning Raider Nation!

    —————

    He didnt finish the Fins game and Im not sure he was in on every play with Pitt. I’ll check the tape again tomorrow. I’d hate to see this kid take any unnecessary beating from the semi’s if he’s out there playing hurt.

    Since when cant he catch?

    Cant be any worse a blocker than Goodson.

    And I dont think his running between the tackles is that bad. He’s shifty in a Harvey Williams sort of way. I like the way he runs. I we were to judge him on how poorly our OLine started the preseason and reg season, well then we wouldnt be very high on DMC either.

  • morilla

    The Robbins story is a sad one. Mental health issues and addictions are nothing to scorn or laugh at. That guy has had a very rough ride, best of luck to him.

  • r8eray

    Raiders waived OT Joseph Barksdale.
    New GM Reggie McKenzie continues to clean up the old regime’s mess. Barksdale was a 2011 third-round pick that appeared in no games this year and ends his Raider career with zero starts. He’ll attract attention on the open market thanks to his 39 college starts at LSU and 6’4/325 frame.

  • http://raiders.com Albert Bigelow Paine

    I hope Criner plays this week. I have a good feeling bout him against Denver.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Since when cant he catch?

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

    I have seen him drop two passes in the last 2 preseasons, both dumpoffs in which he was looking for the defender before he caught it, and of course his penchant on kickoffs for dropping the ball.

    Mix that with his fumbles = bad hands

    True. We should also stop laughing at Beeecham and get him some help.

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

    Harvey was a tough inside runner for year in the NFL.

    Taiwan has maybe 10-15 NFL carries between the tackles in both preseason and regular season.

    Not sure how you come to that comparision.

    I would like to see Jones get some touches, but you have seen Hue and Knapp have to be “creative” to get him the ball, because handing him the ball on a standard run play, is a wasted play.

  • r8eray

    I wonder who the Raiders will sign after Barksdale release?

  • supapimp

    T. Jones is class of ’11 draft. But barksdale is another LSU bust. Smh

  • Violent Hands

    Those pitch plays need to go to Taiwan

    Bi-polar illness is a horrid mental illness.

    The society is woefully undereducated about mental illness. The press, as usual, does nothing meaningful to give us information that will really help society, concentrating instead on the violence that ensues AFTER a patient breaks.

    I hate the press. They care only about sensationalism and on the national level, they care only about advocacy, promoting their point of view. More and more people are calling the main stream media PRAVDA.

  • 2romes

    what I know is working out for knapp and the RAIDERS is the increase production out of the tightends.I absolutely love the boost in productions.The offense may have a shot of many steady drives if this can continue.
