Raiders sign three free agents

The Raiders signed three players after working them out: running back Jon Hoese, nose tackle Johnny Jones and wide receiver Isaiah Williams to reserve/future contracts.
Here’s what the Raiders have to say about the three players in a press release:
The 6-foot-2, 247-pound Hoese was in training camp with the Green Bay Packers in 2012. He was originally signed by the Packers as a non-drafted rookie free agent out of Minnesota, and spent time on Green Bay’s practice squad in 2011. His last name is pronounced HAZE-ee.
The 6-foot-4, 317-pound Jones was with the Packers for the past two seasons. He spent the majority of the 2011 season on Green Bay’s practice squad and was placed on injured reserve during the 2012 preseason. Jones originally signed with the Miami Dolphins as a non-drafted free agent out of Marshall in 2011.
Williams, a 6-foot-2, 204-pound receiver, spent time on the Arizona Cardinals’ practice squad in 2012. He has been with four different teams, including Pittsburgh and Seattle, since entering the NFL as a non-drafted rookie free agent with the Baltimore Ravens in 2009 out of Maryland, where he was teammates with current Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey.

    If we let lechler, kelly, seymour and mcclain go and then restructure DHB, we should have plenty of money for free agents…..now it is just a matter of convincing them to come to the raiders.

    We are not losers anymore!

    Ravens should not franchise Flacco…..he is nit worth it.

    Ravens trade us a second rounder for Palmer.

    I’ve always been a huge Bama fan, well before the Saban era. So I’ll be rooting for them tonite. But I felt a little guilty in church yesterday when the Monsenor hinted at a special prayer for Notre Dame. I felt like I needed to go to confession.

    Hue will always be rumored for HC jobs, but the sad reality is he will interview only to satisfy the Rooney rule.

    **********

    I don’t agree with this. There are lots of minority HC’s in the league and I doubt that color has much to do with GM’s thought processes on making a hire anymore. Bottom line is can you get the job done.

    =======

    Umm there are only 3 black HC’s now left. Maybe Rivera is the other minority. And my point was GM’s don’t think he is HC material.

    I thought it was a 2 year ban, but according to ESPN it’s one year.
    I wish the vest would have done something/ enough to keep the NCAA from getting involved.

    Never will forget driving down the slope just past the state line and getting caught in a speed trap by Nevada State troopers going 68 in a 55 zone. Got put in the back of the squad car while they got german shepards to sniff out my car for drugs. When they found none, I got let off with a warning. But they tore up my trunk carpet pretty bad. F’n Nevada cops!

  • hwnrdr

    I wasn’t really paying attention but…what exactly happened over there? A tattoo scandal? Getting paid for a tattoo???

  • REALLIONAIREB

    Corks out interviewing for that espn job!!!

  • guest123

    After an hour or so, I told the trooper I needed to piss, and he said no. So I told him I’d piss in the back of the squad car. He let me go down the embankment and I pissed right out in front of the highrise casinos of Reno. F’n Reno. I wasn’t even going there or gambling. Just passing thru on the way to Colorado. !@#$ing Reno Cops!
