Update: Raiders not among teams that placed waiver claim on DE Babin

When the Philadelphia Eagles waived veteran defensive end Jason Babin on Tuesday, it set off a mad dash to see which team would be awarded Babin on a waiver claim.
In the end, the Jacksonsville Jaguars were awarded Babin, based on their having the second-worst record in the league. Waiver claims are awarded in reverse order of records.
The Kansas City Chiefs had first crack at Babin, but they passed. The Jaguars were next in line, and they jumped.
At first, it was reported that the Raiders were one of eight teams that placed a claim on Babin. The league’s personnel notice confirmed that only the Jaguars, Bills and Redskins placed claims on Babin.

    the notion that palmer is ‘playing well” is inconsequential at this point.
    ===================================

    Of course it is not inconsequential. We had this discussion already. There are players that are going to be on your roster next year. The analogy I gave you was do you bench your best player the last couple of games as a pee wee coach because some loud mouth idiotic parent wants his lame ass kid to play Q? The answer is what kind of message does that send to all the other players? I can tell you: it sends a very bad message.
    ======

    i understand that you think it is not a good practice, yet that has no bearing on the fact that it is an accepted practice in football and has been for decades.

    In fact it sometimes happens even to players playing well or winning and sometimes before the last quarter of the season.

    Do i need to cite the examples again?

    your disagreement is noted, but it will not stop the inevitable

    Great! Now Tommy Kelly next week, please.

    And of course he bad-mouths us on the way out the door, just like the no-account punk he is.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    I would still like to see MCclain play in the 3-4 with a good NT in front of him. He has played in a piss poor D since being drafted.

    I could see the Pats picking up McClain up when Cut.. or even the Ravens.

    Its clear Rolando got into it with DA or another coach.

    Da finally taking a stand? got rid of curry too. ok DA.. u growin some hair on those nuts??

    Im sure Kelly is next. They dont like him and his mouf

  • aig-raiders

    I liked him but he has been useless so far for us. I think DHB has been more productive than Romac. Sad day for the Raider nation on a wasted draft pick. The one time Al Davis should have went for a physical freak in JPP he went with Romac.

    Last year we didn’t have a good O-Line, it’s amazing how soon we forget how poorly the lined pass protected last year.

    WRONG, try NFL.com Oline stats. #5 last year

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Ok the way i see it.. is McClain didnt get cut.. or he was about to get cut for babin.

    Or he did get cut.. hasnt been released but is about to.. and is talking to BAMA reporters???

    Reggie signed Jerrell Harris former bama linebacker today?? HMMMMMM

  • aig-raiders

    Tommy Kelly, Seymour and a bunch of other overrated Raider players can go too. At this point DMAC can go as well. Great potential but can’t stay healthy. So no use having him around.

  • eastoaklandraider

    If Mcclain has been cut it will be another bad decision for us. Mcclain has never had good coaching here and he will go to another org and shine, just watch.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    mclain called out reggie and DA…lol…its imploding before your eyes…

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    I thnk Rolando is about to get cut.. or he smells the writing on the wall.. and is singing like a bird to bama reporters?

    exactly mac20/mr which ever one you are.

    owners will almost always want to see their draft picks play

    They own the team it is their right to do so.

    happens all of the time

    point remains that many players /qbs struggle in practice and still start

    mark sanchez anyone?

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

    I think we all just saw it with Jason Babin. Babin was not playing poorly, the Eagles are not going anywhere, and personally I am a huge Brandon Graham fan. Apparently they wanted to look at Vinny Curry as well. So, right there is exactly what you are talking about. I just hope you understand I would love to get a look at Pryor. I hope Pryor would come in a game against Carolina or San Diego and go 30 for 34 for 450 yards 5 TD’s and 120 yards on the ground. As I have said a million times, you can never have too many good players. But I just wouldn’t get my hopes too high.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    it is hooplah because he was the 8th overall player in 09.

    Raiders clearly didnt use him right.. and he was never comfortable in the 4-3. Should have let Giants take him.. and we could have had Pierre Paul.

    But that is par for the course of the Raiders. Always a day late n a 1 dollar short with everything. Babin included lol

    According to the NFL’s daily transaction report, only the Bills, Redskins and Jaguars put in claims on ex-Eagles DE Jason Babin.

    Well there u have it. Raiders DID NOT PUT A CLAIM IN

  • MarcusAllen

    Middle linebacker Rolando McClain posted this on what some local and Alabama reporters think is his Facebook wall an hour ago: “Officially no longer an Oakland Raider!!”

    McClain later posted a clarification: “Well technically I am. But I’m mentally done. Just waiting on my papers.”

    The thread was then erased at about 3:35 p.m.

    Kyle Burger, a sports reporter/anchor at WVTM-TV, earlier reported that McClain is no longer with the Raiders. Burger tweeted that McClain writes: ‘I’m gonna weigh my options. Looking forward to playing for an actual ‘team.’

    The Raiders have not waived McClain as the waiver deadline for today passed, and he was not on the list.

    The team will only say that McClain is still on the roster.

    Earlier Wednesday, McClain missed practice due to “team-related issues,” Raiders coach Dennis Allen said.

    Allen wouldn’t offer up any details or comments on the matter. When asked if McClain would be back at practice Thursday, Allen said, “I don’t know that.”

    McClain was the eighth overall pick in the 2010 draft. He has struggled so far in his career and has had his playing time sharply reduced after the fourth game of the season,

    He is due to have a salary cap number of $6.675 million in ’13, $8.475 million in ’14 and $5.085 million in ’15.

    Omar Gaither, who the Raiders signed Nov. 14, appears to be the only man standing on the roster at middle linebacker and would step in for McClain. He was a fifth-round pick of the Eagles in 2006 and spent this year’s training camp with the Texans, but he was never put on their 53-man roster.

    The Raiders will be Gaither’s third team in his six year career. The Tennessee alumnus played his first five seasons for the Eagles, and last year, was a member of the Panthers, playing in 10 games and recording 31 total tackles.

    They saw the same thing I saw, a – content to stay wired to the blocker- MLB who rushed the passer better than expected but played the run a lot worse than expected.
