Raiders make slew of roster moves

The Raiders on Monday signed seven free agents and claimed wide receiver Andre Holmes off waivers from the New England Patriots.
The players signed are: cornerbacks Chance Casey-Thomas and Mitchell White, linebacker Eric Harper, wide receiver Greg Jenkins, tight end Jeron Mastrud, defenisve end Ryan Robinson and center Andrew Robiskie The Raiders signed those players after they worked out for the Raiders over the weekend.
The Raiders waived CB Adrian Bushell, C Deveric Gallington, DB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, TE Mickey Shuler and LS Adam Steiner to make room on the 90-man roster for the players signed.
Here’s some background information on the players signed:

Free agents:

Chance Casey-Thomas (5-11, 190) CB – Baylor: Started all or parts of four seasons as a safety, playing with Robert Griffin III from 2009-11. Finished with 212 tackles (161 solo), six for loss, three interceptions, 18 passes defensed and three forced fumbles. Also returned punts for the Bears.

Eric Harper (6-3, 240) LB – Grambling State: Transferred from Louisiana Tech prior to his senior season, then in his first season as a college starter had 54 tackles and 6½ sacks. Played primarily tight end until his transfer. Lost his house in Hurricane Katrina, which forced him to play for another high school.

Greg Jenkins (6-1, 208) WR – Alabama State: Compiled 17 touchdowns and almost 2,200 yards in the Southwest Athletic Conference’s most productive offense

Jeron Mastrud (6-5, 255) TE – Kansas State: Signed as an undrafted free agent with Tampa Bay in 2010, then spent training camp with the Bucs and the first couple weeks of his rookie season on the Patriots’ practice squad, before Miami signed him to its active roster. Played in 36 games with six starts over his first three NFL seasons (2010-12), all with Miami, catching one career pass for 8 yards. He was eligible to participate in the rookie mini-camp despite being fourth-year player because he did not receive a qualifying offer or minimum salary tender from his previous team (Miami) upon expiration of his contract.

Ryan Robinson (6-4, 255) DE – Oklahoma State: A junior-college transfer, started his senior year at OSU and finished second on the team with six pass breakups, in addition to 32 total stops (25 solo), 8½ tackles for loss and 2½ sacks. Spent two years at Jones Community College. Father and three uncles played college football. Two of those uncles played for the New York Jets and Washington Redskins, respectively.

Andrew Robiskie (6-1, 297) C – Western Illinois: Started the final 25 games of his career on the offensive line, including his senior year exclusively at center. Helped the Leathernecks to a record-setting year and an NCAA playoff berth as a junior in 2011. Son of former NFL RB Terry Robiskie, now the WR coach for the Atlanta Falcons, and brother of the Detroit Lions’ Brian Robiskie.

Mitchell White (5-11, 184) CB – Michigan State: In 43 college games, finished with 26 career tackles (12 solo) and one pass defensed. Played primarily as a reserve defensive back and special-teams contributor during his four years with the Spartans. A former walk-on, earned a scholarship prior to his sophomore campaign. Also competed as a high-jumper on the Michigan State track team. Identical twin brother, Myles, a WR at Louisiana Tech, signed late last month as a non-drafted free agent with the Green Bay Packers.

Waiver claim:

Andre Holmes (6-4, 210) WR – Hillsdale: Third-year player was waived by the New England Patriots Friday. Played in seven games with the Dallas Cowboys last season, registering two receptions for 11 yards. Joined the Cowboys as a free agent for the final four games of the 2011 season, but did not see action. Entered the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings as a non-drafted rookie free agent out of Hillsdale, where he was teammates with current Raiders T Jared Veldheer.

    I guess the Raider brand brings out a lot of trolls.

    They could care less about the Raiders, you can always tell, because they know absolutely noting about Football.

    They’re only here to gossip and do troll schit.

    Isn’t it amazing how many racist Raider fans there are when almost all the Raider greats were black?

    You guys are hilarious!
    ——————-
    No, not all great Raiders were black, probably not even most of them.

    But Raider Nation from Podunk Red States, have their own perceptions.

    ______
    you’re wrong for making blanket assumptions

    example i loved hue as the raiders coach

    liked jc but think cp is an overall better qb

    even though i i’m hopeful and want tp to win the gig think even after the sd game he looked inaccurate yes recievers made drops but they weren’t pinpoint throws

    blanket statments of we all hate all the black players and love all the white players are stereotypes and thus ignorant

    regardless if this is true or not

    realize that you incite anger

    you don’t just state your opinions, you tell others how their opinions are wrong and chastise them for having a different opinion

    haven’t you ever taken a cheap shot at someone out of anger?

    please enlighten me if i’m wrong, but i get the feeling you see the qb debate in terms of race. you’re convinced by jc and pryor but if someone isn’t do you think they’re racist?

    if that’s the case then are you racist for thinking pryor is superior to flynn or wilson?

    there are black guys that aren’t convinced by pryor, so what do you make of them?

    you are who you are, but why start schit?

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

    then you have idiots like this

    you say “regardless if its true or not”

    It is true I saw it and you can watch showtime and see for yourself. Racism should always be regarded and regarded with suspicion and contempt

    then you say im “inciting anger” but jim gray didnt? Im responding to jim grays racist remark, but you blame me for the condition of anger.

    for the rest of your drivel i like pryor because he is the best qb on our team and could be one of the best in the nfl

    I like jc because he was the best qb since gannon and was leading us to wins

    you and others make it about race because you have a problem with black people in general athlete qb or not

    ________________
    when i said regardless if true or not i’m referring to your assessment of the situation, not the situation occuring.

    the point is you anger people because you blatantly disrespect them. i posted nothing of disrespect yet you call me an idiot

    i’m not saying it’s not racist i’m just saying why bring this up in a raider blog

    and why disrespect people and get shocked when they fire insults back? it’s very possible people who aren’t racist use racist remarks when firing back knowing it upsets you

    and quit making the qb debate a racial one. plenty of blacks don’t think much of pryor and plenty of whites don’t think much of flynn or wilson

    we’re here to talk raiders and a white raider fan shouldn’t have to be careful when being critical of pryor as a black man shouldn’t have to worry about how he talks about flynn

    And if he dressed out the road kill as they came he could save weight and then screen out the flies on the trailer and hang and age the meat as he drives.
    Or get a fire going and smoke the meat. Might want to take the southern route, though.

    Jim gray references that joke in a way that the boxers are not offended.

    how did Cribbs pass a Raiders physical (and get offered a contract) , but fail a Jets physical?
    *******************
    Maybe the contract we offered him was a vet min, with injury provisions, so we were ok to take the risk, where as the Jets simply chose not to.

    Also, Seabass is NOT an ‘out of whack’ contract, because he performs the job he is paid to perform, at the top of his position in the NFL. He is the only kicker last year to be 100% inside of 50 yards, and 2 of his 3 misses were from 60 or beyond. Perform at the top of your position, get paid at the top of your position.
