Raiders waive two players

The Raiders waived linebacker Travis Goethel and cornerback Coye Francies as they positioned themselves to kick off training camp with the players they envision having a realistic shot of making the 53-man, opening-day roster.
Neither move registers as much of a shock, given both failed to make much of an impact during their time on the active roster.
Goethel will be remembered most for his difficulty snapping the ball in the regular-season opener against the San Diego Chargers after he replaced injured regular Jon Condo.
He spent most of his time recovering from various injuries and searching for a way on the field in any capacity. Goethel was a sixth-round draft pick in 2010 out of Arizona State.

    I’ve heard Houston moving to the right too.. sounds bad to me I don’t see any way we get a pass rush out of that

  • eastoaklandraider

    Sio Moore has talked a good game, cant wait to see if he lives up to his words. Same for TP.

  • RaiderTater

    Going to take weeks into the season before 3 new starters on the oline get with each other.
    Whichever qb starts the season will be under fire from the get-go. Makes sense to put Pryor in, and design some set plays rolling out, at least to get the qb out of the pocket. Don’t need early injuries due to sacks.

    Don’t be surprised if Houston moves to the right side and Hunter plays the left
    *********
    I thought that was already determined? Everything I have read has said LH99 is starting at RDE, and has been through the whole offseason program.

    ==========

    I though he moved around a bunch in OTA’s….

    Most consistent position was him at left, and Carter at Right…..Just what I read.

    Houston needs to be moved inside to DT, maybe not every down, but esp on obvious pass situations
    ””””””””””””””””””
    Not at this point with Walker and Sims. Houston has shown that he can play end.

    ————–

    Yeah against the run, but he has yet to have a big sack season from that position.
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    Houston will be starting at end whether the right or the left. It possible he could play some T but not on a regular basis.

    Lamarr is going to stay put and dominate

    Lamar is a DE in a 3-4 scheme not in the 4-3, but since you think he is so great at that position give me your over/under on sacks for the season.

    his job to beat up TE’s and shut down the run. on passing plays, go put a hit on the QB – even if it’s not a registered “sack”

    he’s a darn good player. I’m glad we have him!

    Thats what 3-4 DE’s do not 4-3 DE’s, do you know the difference? doesnt seem like it. If you play in the 4-3 you are counted on to get sacks so he is a pass rushing DE, just not a good one and thats because he’s out of position. In a 3-4 olb arwe counted on to get the sacks while the DE soak up blocks. But we agree he is a good player.
