Parsons, Ross, Stewart all on board

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, April 15th, 2013 at 12:06 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Guard/center Alex Parsons, cornerback/safety Brandian Ross and running back Jeremy Stewart all signed their exclusive rights contracts and were presumably present at the Raiders first day of their offseason workeout program Monday.

All were on the 53-man roster last season at the close of the season and could conceivably make it again. Ross saw time as a starting cornerback and Stewart performed well in two games when Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson were both out with injuries.

The Raiders started their offseason workout program today in Alameda. It’s likely that there will be media access to the players at some point in the coming days.

    Judge says Reggie needs to do more now.Really?You do nothing but complain with everything he has been doing.What more do you want him to do?Signing J.Jones,Payton,etc. isn’t an option.He got rid of players that people on here did nothing but complain about and say should be cut.He has the cap in order going forward.It seems the only thing you and your fellow haters have to complain about is he doesn’t sign the players YOU want signed.
    ——-

    Cutting players takes no skill or talent, signing people who agree to come here for the league minimum takes not skill or talent. What has Reggie done besides not be named “Al Davis” that has earned him so much faith from you guys? I had the blind faith in Reggie also when he was hired, it just rapidly died with the Hiring of DA, and was cemented when he hired Knapp.
    ———————-
    All of those things that “anyone could have done” NEEDED to be done. We agree with that. Nobody is crowning him king of Raider greatness, but he is moving in the right direction. It’s up to him to not crash into a wall while doing so.

    Not so well. When Reggie does better i’ll gladly give him his props. Until then i’ll hold him just as accountable for Fkin up the Raiders as Al did.

    No Excuse for 4-12, wasn’t ok when Al did it, not ok when Reggie does it.

    “April 15th is a horrible day, because it sums up all the wealth destruction called taxation that we are subjected to all year long.
    As Murray Rothbard pointed out, taxation is the worst method of looting us. Inflation is destructive, of course, and it might make a loaf of bread cost $10. But at least you get a loaf of bread. With taxation, you get nothing—except theft and other violations of our civil liberties.
    Society, as Mises noted, is divided into two competing classes by interventionist government: the taxpayers and the tax consumers. If you are a payer, you are automatically demonized as greedy. On the other hand, those who want the fruits of your labor involuntarily transferred to themselves and their favored pressure groups are the compassionate.”

    Reggie just wiped his ass with AL’s players so he doesn’t go 4-12 ever again.

    The problem on this forum is when people call for someones head,if you don’t agree,you are automatically pigeon-holed as someone who loves the guy.Reggie is doing what needed to be done.Whether he is successful in putting the pieces back together to be successful remains to be seen.Only time will tell.I want to give the guy the needed time.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Right now the Raiders have 61 players under contract. You can take 80 into training camp. 19 rookies?

    You’ll learn soon enough that we have no choice but to over pay to get good FA’s here. I don’t deny Al couldn’t pick em anymore, but he was able to manipulate the cap

    Close. They’re not actually propaganda outlets for the government, but rather propaganda outlets for their corporate masters and advertisers.

  • willy91137

    Yes Fox news sucks so does MSNBC but in a free society this is what we must have taken what you think is true through the rest away
    they will take 90 people to training camp can you imagine what that cost

    get your wall out Mark

  • eastoaklandraider

    My only problem with Reggie is that he fired Huejax which set us back a couple years because we already had our style and identity with Hue on O(which we are now going back to).

    I have no problem with the 1 year deals, if they perform well we have the cap space to sign them next year if they underperform then there out. Reggie is good with me for now, next year when we have some money to spend we dont have to make a big splash like Mia or Cle this year but I will be expecting 1 or 2 impact signing and I dont mean resigning Veldeer which is very important but I mean a FA from another team.

  • Twocents

    RaiderDuck, it is called “corporatism”. Musilini was the founder. Big business and government joined at the hip. Also known as facism.

  • Twocents

    “fascism”

  • SnBG

    Good article about Mr Davis and his spending. You think Hue was bad.

    Once we are competitive we wont have to overpay FA’s, who wouldnt want to come to Cali and play for a good team?

    As far as Al and the cap, all he did was give more guaranteed money and backload the contract so by the time the player was due to make a big salary he would either be ready to retire or washed up and cut.

  • SnBG

    Article from 2011….. prophetic
    Donald Miralle/Getty Images
    While it’s a great thing that Al is signing his team back, he has to be careful how he does it. He’s dishing out money without a CBA in place, which could come back to bite him later. He’s investing heavily in the older players, which are short term options.

    The NFL is socialism the money split between 32 teams if you are drafted by a team you have to go to that team
