Report: Raiders meeting with veteran DL

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.

    I was a big Hue Jack supporter and for that I was the recipient of a ton of crap.

    I gotta think the reason he doesn’t have an oc gig at least is because he’s perceived as a back stabber or trouble maker.

    I was the few apparently that thought his passion..love for Al and the Raiders etc. was genuine. Alot of guys said it was just an act…I don’t believe that.

    Of course he wanted to promote himself…that’s what guys with alot of confidence do; they think THEY are the best man for the job. I don’t see that as a negative quality…apparently it’s too over the top for most teams.

    I liked Hue as an OC myself but GM??? That kind of outburst is the reason he is not getting a look with other teams.

    Reggie didn’t even want a black head coach, right, Piss-stick?

    Actual garbage time stat padding was when Pryor started n chargers holding comfortable 24-7 lead , n scored t TDs with less than 6 mins to go

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

    yea ur right. it was probably garbage time. so was:

    entire 4th quarter against SD

    entire 4th quarter against miami

    whole 4th and most of the 3rd against denver

    whole second half against baltimore

    when NO went up 28-7 early in the 3rd quarter

    Cincinatti 21-0 at half…considering we only scored 10 i’d say we were never close.

    Hue was def viewed as a backstabber and he mouthed off too much. You can be confident but you have to come across under control. The people that do the hiring prefer people with a quiet confidence. Want proof? A black man (McKenzie) chose a quiet confident guy in DA over a mouthy back stabbing over confident Hue.

    u forgot to add in the 2011 season for palmer, that counted u know… if you’re going to point out JC’s worst season as a raider u gotta do the same for palmer.
    ==========================================

    The lst game Jackson threw him out there even tho he had basically no practice time with the team.

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

    yet you dont afford pryor the same consideration?

    even though pryor out performed palmer in his first start as compared to carson first start as a raider.

    pryor 3 tds 1 turn over 46%

    palmer 0 tds 3 picks 38%

    your on bush…this should be fun
    =======================================

    This is a ridiculous statement. lst off, one guy was here for a year and a half, and the other guy showed up a couple of days before game time. 2ndly, one guy was “hidden” from the opposition while the other guy wasn’t even supposed to go into the game. Lastly, one game was played in the middle of the season, while the other game was the very last game of the year, between two teams going no where, one of which the coach AND GM were getting axed right after the game. Think any of those factors might make a difference?

    sometimes people just fit. jc fit the raiders at the time, don’t think he’s a good qb and wouldn’t want him back, but he had good chemistry with the guys, he fit. hue loved the raiders, and motivated the raiders. loved his passion but he made a huge mistake not blaming himself after sd loss but rather blaming the players saying you can only do so much as a coach eventually it’s the players responsibility. that’s throwing them under the bus in front of the media. also it can be perceived that he bullied management into the palmer trade. i can see how owners wouldn’t like that. i mean look at sd having yes man turner as hc for all those years

    Palmer every 30 attempts with no running game , which mean Ds knew it was always going to be a pass pass pass

    but going by your approach, since u want to dismiss palmers first season as a raider, shouldn’t u have to excuse 2012 bc it was campbells first year as a raider and he had to deal with being benched and not having rhythm most of the season… hahah excuses, right? sound familiar?

    Palmer was an 8 year veteran playing in his 100+ nfl game, pryor was essentially a rookie making his first start of his nfl career after one week working with the first team and learning the plays. does that not play into the situation also?

    ************************
    Actually all those statements are true except that Palmer is not merely a proven loser. He has been on winning teams at times when he is sourrounded by better players. Palmer does give us the best chance to win as far as we know because of the perfomrance of Pryor so far. That may change in the future but for now we know throwing lollypops will not get us wins.

    Look I want Pryor to be better than Palmer but even Pryor said he needs to earn it. Too many on this board want to anoint him based on what? His performance in SD? His preseason? College? Can’t do that he has not shown he is ready to start yet – even for this team.
