Raiders work out five-time Pro Bowl center

By Steve Corkran
Friday, July 26th, 2013 at 1:15 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    Did DA have his sharpie today?

    The_Judge37 Says:
    I see the Same old $h!t with this O-line. No Excuses for Brisel last year, who knows even if he’s “Healthy” that he’ll be good at PBS. Same goes for Berg/Nix in a new system. Kalif, nuff said. Watson is falling behind in addition to having an uphill battle with his lack of experience.
    ======================================================

    I’m not singing their praises, ut if Sparano can field an OLine on both sides of the center, that alone will be an improvement. Smith/Injured Brisiel 9 games last year.

    R8ER MIKE, in 6 weeks of exile, you gave me the greatest f*cking laugh of all the comments I read and I was sorry I couldn’t thank you at the time.
    About you wanting to go out peacefully like your granddad. Not like the other thirty people on the bus he was driving.
    I’m still laughing just typing it.

    while i might agree lbs are improved, wrs are not, safeties took a hit, cbs better than last year but we would be better off ith dvd and chekwa having developed…no pass rush unless you think these fat nts are going to get there…

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

    Wideouts are better. No DHB, no Murphy, and Streater and Criner have some experience.

    Safeties: Usama Young and C-Wood will be a big improvement over Huff and Giordano.

    DVD was worthless.

  • the famous dr robert

    Gurode would immediately become our fourth best OL.

  • Beeeeeech Dawg N Full Effect

    Nob, you gotta post that picture of yourself from your facebook page for me and all my homies to laugh at again

    Can’t believe you’re really a scrawny, pale indie nerd

    Anyway, with the start of training camp / minion beatdowns, it’d be a great way to kick off the festivities

    Oh yeah and speaking of my upcoming hit album Wrecks N Effect, got a few producers fighting over the opportunity to remix a few hot trax

    Probably let them battle it out while the Dawg enjoys some Moet Chandon and a sensual foot rub from Monique (my lovely honey pie)

    DAWGN’ IT ALL NIGHT N DAY

  • RaiderRockstar

    Andre Gurode couldn’t crack the Bears O-Line last year?

    dang, that’s pretty bad.

    What is he gonna do in Oakland?

    serve as Tony Sparano’s asst line coach??

    Reggie Smith was a solid OF for the Dodger Blue power teams in the late 70′s early 80′s. Good player!

    Yo Brahs, the ladies just finished gargling the nads & weiner and Rebecca (stage name Jennifer) won the honor of measuring the Beeeech Lawg

    Unfortunately, the feisty old Dawg was about 1/4 inch short of 15 full inches

    A few of the ladies cried in disbelief, will take them our for milkshakes later and we’ll snuggle extra hard tonight

    In the meantime, gonna let a few hizzies do more BJs, never know, by 9pm they might be able to stretch it to the magic 15

    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…

    27 receptions for 2031 yards? That HAS to be a typo.

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

    maybe adding return yards?
