Raiders sign DT Myles Wade

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Wednesday, July 31st, 2013 at 11:36 am in Oakland Raiders.

With depth issues on the interior of the defensive line, the Raiders signed defensive tackle Myles Wade, according to a tweet from the agency that represents him.

Symmetry said on @symmetry reps: “Congratulations to DT client Myles Wade, who moments ago signed on with the Oakland Raiders . . . Best of luck to Myles.’’

UPDATE: The Raiders have confirmed the addition of Wade.
Oakland has been without projected starting tackle Pat Sims since the start of training camp with an undisclosed injury. During Tuesday’s practice, both Vance Walker and rookie Stacy McGee left with injuries. Walker is also projected to start.

Brandon Bair, who can play both end and tackle, has also been a spectator during the last two practices, as has nose tackle Johnny Jones.

If none of those players are able to return to practice Thursday after a player’s day off, that leaves the Raiders with second-year man Christo Bilukidi and undrafted rookie free agent Kurt Taufa’asau.

Wade, 6-foot-1 and 300 pounds out of Portland State, spent time with the Seattle Seahawks last season but did not see game action and has also been in camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    That Houston at DT has long passed along with his DT weight.
    **********************

    I want fierce pressure from edges when we arent blitzing

    ————-

    I want Houston at DT as well but for one reason or another they keep forcing him to play DE, he didnt play there in college and he made his mark as an DT thats why he was drafted so high. just another suspect move by DA and co.
    ************************

    Truly believe Houston will get snaps at DT when its obvious passing downs

    Carter/Bass
    Walker
    Houston
    Moore

    That can generate pressure out the nickel package

  • lefty12

    Bass’s size is a huge concern.Jerry Mac mentioned yesterday how on successive plays he was buried by OLinemen.Hopefully he can add some weight(muscle) without losing any quickness.

    If you are a Pryor fan and you really want him to start then you want Flynn as the number 1 as of a august 1st…..you want Pryor to keep working from behind and never settling…I think this QB comp will bring best out of team…Raiders havent had a true competition at QB since Kiffin’s first season

    I’ll say it again.

    If the o-line is shaky Pryor will be the better fit. Can’t wait for the first preseason game.

  • SnBG

    Who mentioned 3-4 or 4-3? Stop reaching my friend

    Houston has no pass rush moves from outside

    You talking of stopping run which would be fine by me…but Sims isnt good and Walker is a good backup

    And pass rush is what we need….ferocious pass rush

    Carter,Crawford,Houston and Hunter= dont got it like that……David Bass is our best option at RDE
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    Point is you’re trying to put someone in a box. Like it’s a crime to change a guys position. You really can’t say what Houston will do. You’re also talking out of the side of you’re mouth about Sims and Walker. You don’t know how they will be In starting positions.

  • Follow the B@uceman

    Yeah but also in one article they talked about how he did better vs run after getting pummeled

    One article says he is 6-4 254 but then others say 6-5 265 lol…..who knows but how big do you need to be to play RDE? Usually thats smallest guy on dline

    I just dont dig Houston at LDE…prefer him at UT….Walker is gonna start at UT but I see a backup who can help but he not every down to me….Sims fat ass is a backup and cant even get on field…Christo and McGee are very young…..I’m on record wanting Bass to start….have no interest watching Jason Hunter net 3-4 sacks total….and Andre Carter is rotational at this point
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    Hear we go with the 34 43 NT DT DE talk and who is better suited etc….. Houston is our best option at LDE and has improved in the position. We can’t say a lot about Sims and Walker until they play. They will stuff that run right into the hands of Houston and Carter or who ever mans the RDE spot. Houston is a beast against the run and with teams not being able to run on us like last year I can see Houston’s game getting even better.

    the passrush is weak… we’re gonna have to deal with it…

    there is no qb competition.. wish there was but, no.. when Flynn and prior start splitting the first team reps then you might consider it a competition.

    Like I said before, you don’t know until we start the games. This is a better line than we had last year and Houston will be able to play without thinking as much as he did in the past. I don’t know if he will be a great rusher, we’ll see but I think he’s going to do fine. He’s also versatile enough to play other positions on the line also.

    Besides Houston,i don’t believe any of our Dlinemen can be called true starters because I believe they will be rotating so much.Guys that start probably won’t get many more plays than guys off the bench.

    flynn is one for now, he wont hold the job for the entire year,a nd may not make it out of preseason when play making begins to show up

    looking good in shorts and a red jesrey didnt help him fight off r wilson last year either

    _________________________________________________

    I would think that you would admit that Wilson would beat a lot of the starting QBs in the league out of their job?
    Vikings, Bengels, Jaguars, Cleveland, Chiefs, Rams, Miami, Jets, Buffalo, Titans…probabley more.
    ================

    dont forget i was the only one here while wilson was in college syaing he would be a star at the this level

    however the situation flynn is in now is much the same as in seattle

    new team new team mates new offense

    an absolute super human bionic qb waiting to take his job

    when preseason starts and qbs can be hit you will see why being “the most consistent” shouldnt be enough to keep the job

    especially when you have a one of a kind play maker wating in the wings

    easy to stay on schedule in red jerseys and shorts, not when the live rounds are flying

    flynn looks better in practice (allegedly)

    pryor will look waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy better in games than flynn

    How do you know Houston won’t get more than 3 sacks? Sims and Walker are upgrades from Kelly and Seymour and are plenty good at stopping the run and being disruptive. How many teams have superstar Dlineman across the board? They have guys that can fill roles. Walker and Sims will be that. The pass rush will come from different areas. I’m tired of teams running down our throats. These guys will stop that.

    If I was a GM that would be my most coveted position behind QB, you have to be able to pressure the passer and protect the passer if you do thiose 2 things you will be all good everything else will fall in place.

    How do you know Houston won’t get more than 3 sacks? Sims and Walker are upgrades from Kelly and Seymour and are plenty good at stopping the run and being disruptive. How many teams have superstar Dlineman across the board? They have guys that can fill roles. Walker and Sims will be that. The pass rush will come from different areas. I’m tired of teams running down our throats. These guys will stop that.

    Umm all due respect my friend…you and I are upgrades over Seymour and Kelly

    I dont like this idea of pass rushing coming from everywhere….need dline especially DEs to be that or you will be fked
