Raiders sign familiar kicker

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.

    I think if we run a 4-3:

    Carter, Sims, Houston, Walker
    Burnett, Roach, Burris

    Moore as either 3rd down End or LB.
    ————————-
    Houston isn’t moving inside on a regular basis. Other than that I think you have it about right. I wouldn’t lock Burris into that spot though.

    There will be plenty of rotation.’
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    I would say that the Dline in a 43 is suspect.Carter was a legit pass rusher but I think coming of the edge every down will wear him out. We brought in Lb’s this year so I don’t see those guys hanging around the bench waiting for the team to play a 34 We have 4 good Backers now and one good backup along with our Corners. We will play to our strengths.

    Lol. Missdick has a lid of every guy he can claim is gay (true or not) and calls them oppressors.

    But gay black people are victims of the white culture.

    Basically:

    White people always wrong. No innocents.

    Black people never wrong. Always victims of white people.

    What a zealous jack azz.

    If Moore can fill in as our Rush End, then we don’t need to save Carter. I agree compared to the line, we’re much better at LB. But i just fear the transition for so many 4-3 LB’s. Maiva and Burnett have 3-4 experience but that doesn’t mean they were any good at it.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I haven’t seen enough of Sims & Walker to sell me that they are starters in a 3-4 or 4-3 defense.

    Gotta say the NFL draft is the best of all 4 major sports. The bad thing is we now have to wait for a gazillion days before training camp. The NFL should seriously consider a farm league to playing during this time of the year.

    - Being stolen from your homelands. Then being forced into hard labor without pay in hot, humid regions. Being beaten for even the slightest transgression, or possibly nothing at all. Having no say in your life. Being eventually freed, but still subjected to nearly a century of fear, segregation and discrimination.

    That’s RIDICULOUS.

    Slaves were imported from Africa (where they were sold to European slavers by rival African tribes) to America from the early 1600s to the early 1800s (importation of slaves was banned by Congress in 1808 — any American slaves after that were descendants of the slaves already here).

    That’s 200 years.

    In order for 100 million slaves to have died, that means 500,000 would have to have died per year.

    The average slave ship held 350 or so slaves (some as few as 150-200, some as much as 600).

    500,000/365.25 gives us 1,369 slaves (or the equivalent of four or five full slave ships) dying on the ocean every single day for 200 years. Hardly a profitable enterprise.

    Like I said, ridiculous.

    And the only two people I could find named “John H Clarke” were both white men: one a present-day flamenco guitarist and the other a long-dead Supreme Court Justice.

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/22172302/family-tragedy-inspires-ravens-johnson-to-fight-domestic-violence

    Johnson has told his story to women’s shelters, high schools and churches. Small groups, larger groups. He has done this for many months now, mostly unnoticed by the media or general public. He has done it without question. He has done it without a pat on the back.

    His story begins not so long ago, in December 2011, when Johnson was with the Raiders. He was watching game film in the team facility when he got a text from his mother. It was three words:

    “He shot her.”

    • • •

    The person shot was Johnson’s sister, Jennifer. She had been estranged from her boyfriend, Eugene Esters. Esters and Jennifer, police say, got into an argument in the parking lot of Jennifer’s Fort Worth, Texas, apartment complex because he wanted to see the couple’s 2½-year-old daughter. Esters shot Jennifer several times, according to police. She was transferred to a hospital and later pronounced dead.

    Johnson’s mother, Della Johnson, was also shot, but survived her wounds. Esters faced charges of capital murder and attempted murder.

    The trial was scheduled to begin next week but a plea agreement — reached with the approval of Chris and the family — was made with Esters. Johnson would not give details of the agreement.

    “We wanted to make sure there was no chance he didn’t go to prison,” Johnson said. “We didn’t want to risk something crazy happening with a jury trial.”

    It is in those moments, when a sister is shot dead, and her children are without their mother, and their father is the alleged killer, that if Johnson wanted to crawl into a hole and disappear, no one would have questioned why.

    Instead, something extraordinary happened. Johnson asked for his release from the Raiders. He then took in his sister’s two children, 14-year-old Sidney and 3-year-old Solia. They joined Johnson’s children Chris Jr., Bran and Krissy.
