Hayden signs contract; Raiders ready to focus on football

The Raiders signed cornerback D.J. Hayden to a long-term contract Thursday, one day before the team’s first training camp practice in Napa.
Hayden was the 10th and final Raiders 2013 draft pick to sign a contract. The Raiders now have everyone under contract and can get about the business of preparing for the regular season through practices at their away-from-home facility at the Napa Valley Marriott and Redwood Middle School.
The Raiders are undergoing physical examinations and taking part in meetings today in preparation for Friday’s 8:50 a.m. practice.
No word on whether Hayden will be cleared to practice Friday. He missed the tail end of offseason workouts after he underwent surgery to remove scar tissue in his abdomen region. The scar tissue built up as a result of a surgery Hayden underwent in November to repair a ruptured vein that he suffered during a practice at the University of Houston.
Coach Dennis Allen said he expected Hayden to be healed in time for the start of training camp. If Hayden needs more time, he likely will begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list.

    DJJ, I remember being in the student center at Vandy. For some reason i remember they had this harmongous chair/sofa shaped like a baseball glove.

    Yeah Vandy’s one of the better schools in the south. Nashville has become very northernized in recent years it seems.

    Vick will never be a Raider bcuz he will start in Philly and thrive. In the new system

    Kell would probably welcome Vick.

    But Vick might take Pryor’s spot on the 53-man team.

    How do these things get started? Florio is shooting the breeze with a front office guy from around the league who says off the cuff in jest “Well Raiders don’t have much at QB..maybe they’d take him if he doesn’t work out in Philly” and Florio runs with it?

    I find it hard to believe Florio has any solid inside info on this.

    I’m with you on that. On a side note however, if Vick WERE to come here, I think it would guarantee that TP would be the #2 as he would have the closest skill set to Vick for the offense that Olson would put in for Vick.

    If they didn’t want to see Pryor, they could have cut him, rolled with McGloin as the #3 and saved real dollars and cap space.

    The notion he won’t get a “fair” chance is ludicrous.
    ===============================================
    Maybe so, but you’ve got to wonder what Cork is basing the ‘didn’t get a fair shot last year, don’t see it happening this year’ statement on.

    Remember, TP was INACTIVE virtually all of 2012.

    Tits and Krapp obviously were not keen on using him in any capacity.

    Even with the season hopelessly lost, they still wanted to go with the futureless Matt Lice rather than seeing what TP could do.

    Right up until the final week Tits was saying TP wasn’t even close to being ready to start.

    It was only after MD and RM whacked Tits with the clue bat that Tits reversed course and TP got to start week 17.

    I don’t know what else Corky could be referring to when he says TP didn’t get a fair chance last year.

    I don’t know why he thinks TP is unlikely to get a fair chance in 2013.

    Maybe he doesn’t think Tits and Olson are up to installing an additional type of offensive scheme that gives TP the best chance to succeed.

    Maybe Tits is entirely opposed to anything but a conventional pocket passer.

    Maybe Tits wants to validate RM’s trade for Flynn.

    Maybe Tits is just a stubborn douche without a clue.

    Only Cork knows what his chat comment meant.

    And knowing Corky, it would be best not to hold your breath while waiting for him to expand on or clarify his comment.

  • the famous dr robert

    If Vick came here, I wouldn’t support the raiders anymore.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Vick isn’t thriving anywhere.

    He is going on almost two years now with just about as many total turnovers as TD’s.

    And playing with one of the best skill position groups in all of football.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Just saw Greg Krapp at the MULE TC on the NFLN.

    Looks like Krapp put a few pounds on.

    Krapp was running a QB drill and looked like he was doing a good job.

    I remember watching Krapp running some drills at a college all-star game two years ago. He was wired for sound on that one. Krapp was actually quite good. Communicated concisely and clearly. Had excellent command.

    Watching Krapp in action during drills, you would never suspect that he might be the worst OC and play caller in NFL history.
