Report: Raiders meeting with veteran DL

By Steve Corkran
Tuesday, March 5th, 2013 at 11:29 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders reportedly are about to jump in the mix for the services of veteran defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins, which makes sense given Jenkins’ connection to Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie.
Jenkins was released by the Philadelphia Eagles last month rather than pay him a $5 million roster bonus. Ever since, Jenkins has been a hot commodity among teams interested in adding a versatile lineman.
Jenkins, 32, already has visited the New York Giants. He also has visits lined up with the Seattle Seahawks and 49ers, with the Raiders on the radar for Wednesday, according to NFL.com.
The Raiders figure to be in the market for at least one player capable of playing inside on the defensive line, with the departure of Richard Seymour, Desmond Bryant a prospective free agent and Tommy Kelly a potential salary cap casualty.
Jenkins played for the Packers from 2004-10 when McKenzie was part of that team’s front office. He bolted for the Eagles in 2011 and started all 32 games the past two seasons.

    They did a poll of the most admired figures in Wisconsin last yr. and the top 3 were:

    3-Vince Lombardi
    2-Jesus Christ
    1-Aaron Rodgers
    ==================================================

    Not a large jewish contingent in Wisconsin, huh? Go figure.

    No. Mostly persons of German and French ancestry. Germans in Milwaukee obviously..beer capitol of the world at one time and alot of french named towns like Fond U Lac, La Crosse, Lac Du Flambeau etc.

    They LOVE their Packers up there. The Packers represent their very identities as human beings.

    IGAG’s back! Now we’ll get the real skinny on what’s going on at the Raiders’ operational headquarters.
    ————————————
    IGAG will be camping in a tree with some binoculars to bring you the scoop scoop. Heard Reggie and DA got banned from IHOP and now are hangin at Dennys. Hacen unas tortitas buen sabor de México. IGAG is banned from IHOP too. I’ve had the runs for about 2 weeks now.

    Hola a todos. IGAG ha vuelto a hacer un poco de los blogs serio.

    Hugo Chavez died of cancer, just like Marley. Oppose the Empire, pay the price. Heard gas costs less than a quarter there…or did.

    IGAG se reunió con algunos hoochie dulce que amaba para mí para comprar su cerveza. Ella me abandonó como una patata caliente cuando se me acabó el dinero. Ouch.

    It’s interesting what winning can do for a team and and their fans. For years the Packers used to play half their home games in Milwaukee at the old home of the Brewers..County Stadium…Lambeau only housed 4 reg. season games a year…until I think around ’92 when they started winning and then GB wanted their team back for the whole season.

    Their popularity has skyrocketed since then. You could get tickets for games at County Stadium. Bears fans would travel an hour and a half up I-94 and almost take over the place.

    Now the waiting list at Lambeau is like 20 r’s or some ridiculous thing like that.

    Ahhhh, the Low Browed Retards……………………………..

  • IGAG

    IGAG needs some serious IHOP to soak up all the dysentary in my belly. But since me and Reggie and DA are banned from there, think I’ll start hangin at dennys.

  • DJ Johnny

    Raiders need to start winning. The support will be there from the business community and fans if they do.

    Losing is a tough sell no matter how much history you have.

    The five stages of grief;
    Denial
    Anger
    Bargaining
    Depression
    Acceptance
    ———–
    Denial-Pryor is better than Palmer. Look at that 53 per cent third down conversion rate! And red zone scoring!(forget that gift blocked punt at the 11 yard line)

    Anger- Ongoing and vitriolic to the point of lunacy.

    Bargaining-Beginning already. At least there’s going to be an open competition for the QB position.

    Depression-Will set in during OTA’s and mini camps and all other team activities before training camp and pre season, with Palmer being the QB focus.

    Acceptance-Palmer plays the first quarter of 3 out of 4 pre season games because he’s the starter.

    How was the llama birthing fiasco today.

    Was confused whe you said you had to check out Llama ass for legs all day. It really skewed my perception of the Llama birth experience.

    The funny part is that you had a preconceived perception of the Llama birthing experience. Lol.

    I hate fudgepacker fans. I didn’t know a single one until that hick from Mississipi got traded there. They didn’t exist. Biggest bandwaggoners there are. I’m talking 49er bandwagon type.
