Condo signs extension, plus notes

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, August 4th, 2013 at 1:17 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders announced the signing of two-time Pro Bowl long-snapper Jon Condo to a three-year contract extension Sunday, their second special teams move of the week.

Condo, in his seventh season out of Maryland, joins place kicker Sebastian Janikowski, whose contract extension was announced Friday.

Selected to the Pro Bowl following the 2009 and 2011 seasons, Condo was a reluctant snapper as a college linebacker at the University of Maryland.

“I hated it. I was playing outside linebacker and there was no other snapper and they just threw me in there,’’ Condo said. “It took away from the defensive side of the ball. The coach keep doing this and you can make some money, you can make a living out of it.’’

The Raiders discovered how valuable Condo was in the season opener last season, when he sustained a concussion on kick coverage. Issues with emergency snapper Travis Goethel helped contribute to a 22-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers.

The financial commitments to Janikowski and Condo, plus the signing of return specialist and coverage player Josh Cribbs, along with the addition of special teams coach Bobby April, illustrate the importance the Raiders are putting on special teams.

“There’s a definitely an emphasis on the special teams,’’ Condo said. “You look at the great teams, it’s good defenses and great special teams. It’s all about field position, where you start, and making explosive plays on the punt team or punt return, it’s huge and a momentum builder and it can break down the opposing team.’’

Terms of Condo’s contract were not available.

_ Quick hits from the Raiders training camp practice Sunday morning:

– Lots of players sitting it out either due to injury or getting a rest, including six projected defensive starters _ defensive tackle Vance Walker, defensive tackle Pat Sims, defensive end Lamarr Houston, linebacker Sio Moore, cornerback Tracy Porter and cornerback Mike Jenkins.

Also out was right guard Mike Brisiel, with the interesting shift of Khalif Barnes from right tackle to right guard with Alex Barron taking over at first team right tackle.

First-team corners with Porter and Jenkins out were D.J. Hayden (still in a no-contact red shirt) and Chimdi Chekwa. Kaelin Burnett replaced Moore, joining his brother Keith and Nick Roach as the first-team linebackers.

– The Raiders worked out defensive end Ryan Baker following practice because of injuries along the defensive line

– Offensive players wore silver jerseys, having won them from the defense during Saturday’s afternoon session.

– During a two-minute drill session, first-team quarterback Matt Flynn drove the offense to a touchdown capped by a perfect back-footed flip to Rod Streater in the back of the end zone against Chekwa.

Pryor led the second-team to a score, rolling right and finding Jacoby Ford in the right corner of the end zone.

– Left tackle Jared Veldheer was back at practice after leaving Saturday’s session with a triceps injury and getting an MRI.

– Season-ticket holders got on wide receiver Andre Holmes for a pair of drops during drills, then cheered wildly when he held on to one.

– Running back Darren McFadden continues to look strong as he always does during training camp. When games begin, however, expect most of the work to go to the likes of Deonte Williams and James Stewart.

– Practice ended with team sessions that were run at approximately half-speed.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Wait now bush will deny the fact that he didn’t even know what the hybrid offense was.

    Lol he will act as if I didnt spend months educating him on why the option was going to work how it works & so on.

    He will twist & turn looking to part from his flawed outlook, he even tried to say it was a dumbed down gimmick. I had to teach him that the option was augmenting the playbook when you go hybrid & marry it to a so called pro scheme like the wco.

    Ha, these dudes get slapped around often

    Of course u did, missdick.

    “Pryor 3 qb coaches he hired in the offseason were not allowed in the huddle.”

    Amazing. lst off the “read option” is not a “hybrid” offense. In fact, the read option is not an “offense” at all. IT IS A PLAY!! Anyone with any football acumen knows that. Oh, right, forgot, I was talking to mistic…..

    What the fans that are following twitter feeds don’t realize is they are running a LOT of plays out there by both the lst and 2nd teams. And they are all on 10 minute timed drill intervals. So, what that means is when someone tweets “Pryor with amazing 60 yard bomb to Butler wows crowd #lstballothalloffamer” what does NOT come across is in the four or five minutes before and after, Pryor ran 5-6 plays that were not very good. Against the Raider two’s. Who are not very good.

    See who has balls or a mangina.

    Who wants to bet me?

    If Flynn doesn’t start the season, I will leave for a month. No posts. Nothing.

    If at any time Flynn is replaced by Pryor, as a starter, not put in as a gimmick play, not due to injury, I will leave this board permanent.

    Pryor sucks, and will never outplay Flynn.

    Who wants to take this challenge?

    U won’t, because u know it won’t happen.

    And none of this saying someone is posting as u.

    Any takers?

    Thought not.

    Funny Mistic hypes Kap now too.

    Being that prior to that draft, he said he would never be any better than Kordell Stewart.

    I disagreed with him and he called me names.

    Now he calls me names for I don’t even know what about Kapernick.

    All you can do is chuckle.

    You dont pick a project qb in the second round. Your second rounder must contribute right away, he cant be guy that sits for a year or two. davis & hu jack know this. Even if this interest is real, dont think you will see him picked until late in the draft.

    A strange delivery can work in the nfl as long as it is quick. Kosar, Vy, marino, ugly form but quick delivery. Long wind ups dont work, ryan leaf is a good example. If leftwich and tebow had a love child it would be colins delivery. leftwich is accurate, but his wind up gets him killed. sorry guys this dog wont hunt.

    I have to ask this again as well. some of you that are so enamored with colin say he will be good, but you say newton has no shot?!?!?

    They both played in shotgun, wich you claim is reason that cam cant make it. You say cam has bad mechanics, but colin has even worse mechanics. Newton has a pro throwing motion, colin doesnt. newton is an accurate passer, colin struggles mightily.

    believe me colin’s athleticism cant make up for a lack of accuracy. Kordell stewart was the most amazing runner as a qb (second only to vick, & i mean barley second) with a rocket for an arm. he couldnt avoid the turn overs because decision making and accuracy was hit and miss. Colin cant even be mentioned in the same breath as kordell.

    Stop with this madness, it makes no sense.
