Raiders sign familiar kicker

By Steve Corkran
Tuesday, April 30th, 2013 at 12:53 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Sebastian Janikowski is the longest-tenured Raider now that punter Shane Lechler is gone. His job is as secure as anyone on the roster, given his experience and sustained success during his 13-year NFL career.
Given that, not much should be made of the Raiders re-signing kicker Eddy Carmona on Tuesday. It’s standard practice for most teams to bring two kickers to camp as a means of lightening the load of the main kicker, as well as providing insurance in case the main guy gets injured.
Carmona kicked well for the Raiders during training camp last season and in exhibition games. Predictably, he was waived at the end of camp.
What was suprising is that no other team signed Carmona. He did not kick in a regular-season game last season.

    Jamarcus blames himself.

    But not debo.

    I can’t stand players whining about rough defense. Which was the biggest dissapointment about D12′s last game. Ejected for complaining is punk b!tch $h!t. At least Bynum was ejected for drilling a 170lb guard.

    Haters? Is this JR hanging JLH out to dry, or a clutch throw on 3rd and 15 late in the game??

    it’s amazing i’ve seen a boat load of ej manuel highlights. all you see is watson not the defender nowhere near the qb. this kid will has a bright future.
    ——–
    He gave up 1 sack all year so you will have a hard time finding the defender near his QB. He does look lost when he is in space though but that is to be expected for someone with 2 yrs of football exp. He’ll be a beast.

    Triple coverage?? JR believed in his talent to make the throw and he did. That clutch gene is a huge reason he was picked #1 overall. Should he have thrown it to a falling down DHB instead?? Game was on the line.

    No one denies Russell had the tools. But that’s what makes him fizzling out so much worse.

    What’s the excuse for him holding out 8 weeks into his rookie season? What’s the excuse for sleeping through film sessions? Like i said, he didn’t have much help, but he didn’t help himself either.

    Debo–I can’t look at it right now but Russell made some nice throws here and there. He had talent. He was just mostly lousy, mainly due to his his own indifference.

    Why did u decide to choose him as ur hero anyway?

    U do seem like a jilted lover. Move on.

    My prediction is that he’ll be working out for a team or two in the next couple of weeks. Gun to my head, Chicago will be one of them.

    Al never had any problems dishing out money or getting contracts done until Jamarcus. So Al can only be faulted for drafting him in the 1st place. An article by Jason Cole on futher damages your argument.

  • dr_robert

    I’m not hurt at all debo.

    I predicted Palmer being dealt. It made sense.

    And I was right about him the whole time.

    But I don’t care cuz he’s gone.

    Let go debo. Russell sucked. He knows he sucked. We all do.

    Move on kid. He’s not coming back. He’s with someone else now.

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

    He threw it behind JLH: notice how JLH has to turn his body and almost reach behind him.

    But what was more important to JaMarcus: learning to run the plays properly or drrrrrrinking his Syzurrrrrp?

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. It’s a disease or whatever…

  • http://goducks.com Sir RaiderDuck, OMS

    And no NFL team is bringing JaMarcus “I just want to sit behind a veteran and get paid for doing nothing” Russell in for a tryout or anything. The Boston Bomber dude has a better chance of landing in camp.

    Couldn’t have lead him because of the Defender. It was a good throw into a tight window on 3rd and Long. Have to give him at least that.

    But that wasn’t the 1st, or last, time he hung ole Johnnie Lee out to dry

    Huh?? Behind him?? Dude never had to break stride. If he doesn’t turn to catch the ball, it hits him in the back. I’ll just give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you’re joking.

  • SnBG

    Russell, the biggest disappointment in Raider history. He deserves a second chance, just not with the Raiders and not in the NFL. Maybe the arena league but they’re probably too smart to take him also.

    >>>>

    There is and should be a ton of Raiders fans with “butt hurt” because Reggie deep sixed their best player from last season. Why? He worked hard, took a ton of hits, was the team leader, and did the best he could with an offense with no running game.

    But you are the only Raider fan left on the planet still carrying water for JaMoney. He is nothing but an embarrassing NFL disgrace… and all because he was lazy and quit trying after his Uncle passed away.

    Kind of a big difference, don’t ja think?
