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.

    O, on another note, hopefully not to sore yet, I think I mentioned that my tenant has a Mini Pin, and is about to let him stud out. I have a hard time saying that, being used to larger studs. But still.

    your numbers dont take into account all of the black people that died before they even boarded any ships and that number is huge

    nor does it consider the number of slave ships

    nor does it consider those that died in war fighting the slavers

    the transatlantic slave trade was the worst atrocity in human history perpetrated by whites against black people

    documented fact deal with it

    does it make you feel better to try and lower the death toll/

    We should of traded Tonga to the Queefs for Arenas

    With any luck, Barnes will suffer a minor calf strain or something in pre-season and Watson can step in and learn on the fly. Let’s baptize this o-line in fire; it’s not like we have to worry about our QB situation or record this year. Bring in Bergs or Nix too!

    the slave trade wasnt profitable in the long run which is why they stopped trying to capture free people and turn them into slaves, and why they adopted the Willie lynch system in the first place

    this too failed as black people revolting and destroying plantation crops forced the hand of the u.s into giving up on it all together.

    now it is the prison system

    Sorry folks been out of here for last few days, but have been following the draft.

    What say you that no D-linemen in the top four picks?

    I thought this was a big D-line draft? (Star, Shariff, Mingo etc.).

    Reggie thinking loooong term? QB in the 4th?

    Does it make you feel better to greatly exaggerate the death toll?

    “this too failed as black people revolting and destroying plantation crops forced the hand of the u.s into giving up on it all together.

    now it is the prison system”

    So the people in jail do not deserve to be there and in your opinion should be set free?

    How about stop acting like a victim and place the blame where it belongs on the fathers shoulders for not taking care of his children…..black brown white yellow and Aliens.

    Raidertalk,

    I think Vance Walker is going to be a bad-a$$, but even if he pans out we’ll have to battle the market for his services long term. Would have loved to get a DE with the 2nd pick, though that Brit looks like a mauler. The best part about the draft is owning players for 4 years at the least.

    Still, here’s hoping that Bass player can PUT HIS PANTS

    Yahoo Sports picks the 10 worst Raider starting QBs of the last decade. Especially funny is their description of JaMarcus:

    2) JaMarcus Russell, 7-18
    Blame his attitude, work ethic or recreational habits, but the fact remains Russell was a horrible NFL thrower. The 2007 first overall pick showed miniscule improvement in 25 starts as he posted numerous games with a sub-50 quarterback rating (including seven in his last season). Despite his incredibly strong arm and intimidating stature, Russell’s lack of aim and poor reads were major factors in his downfall.

    Russell. Marinovich played well until he lost the internal drive and decided he liked heroin better than football. JaPaycheck, on the other hand, was a pure slug from day one.

    Missdick loves to talk about historical racism.

    But he wasn’t involved in any of it.

    But his life sucks so he has to blame something.

    So it’s the “secret and subtle” racism that’s at the root of everything.

    If he fails, it’s not his fault. It’s napoleon’s.

    Also, SI mentions Reggie:

    Best nearly unnoticed work
    Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie cleans up after the debacle of the Hue Jackson era: Short on cap space and draft picks in his first year on the job, McKenzie is starting to dig out of the hole that he inherited. The move that brought Matt Flynn in and pushed Carson Palmer out at quarterback was a solid step, as were low-profile free-agent signings like Tracy Porter, Nick Roach, Jason Hunter and Mike Jenkins.
    More good work was done in the draft, with the Raiders trading down from No. 3 to No. 12 to reacquire a second-round selection, and picking up instant starters in cornerback D.J. Hayden, offensive tackle Menelik Watson and linebacker Sio Moore. Oakland has plenty of work left to do, but some of the heavy lifting has been done.
