Raiders work out five-time Pro Bowl center

NAPA – The Raiders worked out veteran offensive lineman Andre Gurode on Friday.
Gurode, 34, started 127 games for the Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens from 2002-11. He signed with the Chicago Bears in 2012 but didn’t play any regular-season games.
Gurode played center for the Cowboys, but he converted to guard with the Ravens in 2011. He is a five-time Pro Bowler.
The Raiders are set at center with third-year player Stefen Wisniewski. However, Wisniewski started at left guard his rookie season, so he is versatile enough to move back if needed.
For now, the Raiders are looking at Tony Bergstrom and Lucas Nix at left guard. Neither player has started a game at left guard in the NFL. Bergstrom started one game his rookie season, at right guard.
Gurode worked out in front of 20 or so coaches, scouts and trainers. Head coach Dennis Allen and general manager Reggie McKenzie were among those who watched as Gurode went through the paces after the Raiders concluded their first practice of training camp.

    Just checking out a draft “insider page” for Latvius Murrany.. “full-time basis and registered 198 carries/1106 yards/15 TDs on the ground while adding 27 receptions/2031 yards/4 TDs as a receiver.”

    Damn that is a lot receiving yards! On 27 catches…

    _______
    that’s almost 100 yards a catch, can’t be right

    Maybe he was doing some Bo Jackson/Tecmo Bowl type runs after the catch?

    How can Watson allow himself to get hurt right before training camp. Your NFL career is on the line and you have a chance to win a starting job.

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

    Maybe he was working out and overdid it. Maybe he tripped and sprained his ankle. Who knows? Life happens.

  • 24

    Well then why does life always have to happen to the Raiders? haha

  • mcfadden20.

    Beech totally not gay

    On a relevant topic, I think the team is uncomfortable with both Nix and Bergstrom

  • mcfadden20.

    need to sign a RT if Watson is going to be out extended period of time

  • mcfadden20.

    Barnes need to retire already

  • mcfadden20.

    Need a pass rusher really bad jus in case Sio Moore doesn’t excel at rushing the passer

  • 24

    I’m more uncomfortable with Brisiel at RG. Bergstrom and Nix are young and can improve.

  • mcfadden20.

    Need a # 1 TE

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

    Shouldn’t be a need. By all accounts, “Active/NFI” is only used if the player will be out a short amount of time.

    Brahs, any of you in town tonight stop by Jer Ne for the Dawg’s friday night hip hop / comedy spectacular

    I’ll be laying down fresh raps and also trying out new jokes for my explosive comedy routine

    Usually after a couple zingers there’s a few ladies on their knees fighting to unzip and unleash the Lawg (14.8 inches and growing)

    I have my handlers take care of them ho’s (stuff them in my suite) and quickly get back to the funny

    Gotta give the fanz what they want

    THAT JUST HOW THEM BIG DAWGS BARK

  • mcfadden20.

    Briesel should do much better with better coaching

  • Oaktown12

    That wasn’t a mistake, just the way NFL teams handle the backup long snapper situation. Who’s long snapper get hurt anyway.
