Raiders add Baker to wounded D-line

The Raiders announced the signing of defensive lineman Ryan Baker Monday, bringing some depth to an injury-ravaged position.

Baker, 6-foot-5 and 302 pounds, played in 17 games over four seasons with the Miami Dolphins. He worked out for defensive coaches and the personnel staff following Sunday’s practice, during which the Raiders had seven defensive lineman who were held out of practice.

Nose tackle Johnny Jones, out since the beginning of camp with an undisclosed injury, was waived/injured, meaning he will be put on injured reserve once he clears waivers.

Baker was predominantly a defensive end in Miami, although listing him as a lineman indicates they believe he can play tackle as well.

Aside from Jones, defensive linemen who were unable to practice Sunday were end/tackle Brandon Bair, tackle Myles Wade, tackle Pat Sims, tackle Stacey McGee, tackle Vance Walker and end Lamarr Houston.

Sims has not participated in any of the Raiders nine training camp practices leading into Monday’s session at 2:50 p.m.

    Is there an easy way to get down off this TP bandwagon?
    ==========================================

    Yeah, all one has to do is open their eyes.

    Wasn’t Adams signed to a 2 or 3 year deal? If so he’s not going anywhere. I also like him, thought he came on strong last season.

    so i guess bc there hasn’t been any games played, no opinions should be made. forget the experts ranking them as the worst, forget the lack of success they have had in the past, or maybe the fact their are only a few who can even practice right now. Non of that should be pause for concern?
    Its funny bc the raiders have yet to turn into a winning franchise and you are one of the bloggers whose man crush on RM is tough to stomach. So if I have to wait to analyze the DL why dont you wait until the raiders actually win before anointing RM as our savior
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    Lets see, Houston has done pretty good at LDE and is getting better. Carter has played very well when healthy and Bass could turn out to be good. YOU DON’T KNOW. Walker has played pretty well and has proven to be pretty disriptive and can get to the QB. Falcons didn’t want to get rid of him. YOU HAVEN’T SEEN MUCH OF HIM TO SAY HE WILL BE BAD. The time he’s played he has been good. Sims is a good run stopper and YOU HAVEN’T SEEN ENOUGH OF HIM TO SAY WHAT HE WILL BE LIKE. You’re statement is a half glass empty one based in nothing but negativity.
    —————————
    LOL.many bloggers see the reality of our situation. You love to throw the negativity card around must make you feel powerful. the reality is a DL success is having depth and play makers. Had to argue but our depth is a concern.I like Houston but beyond that there is only pause for concern. Carter did nothing for us last year, i like his leadership but think his skills have diminished. We all hope for the best that a rookie 5th round pick can play , but since you claim no evaluations can be made until he’s seen play maybe we should temper expectations.
    Lastly, if your gonna not allow someone to have an opinion until everyone can fully diagnose the results of a performance then you may want to live by your own standards and see if RM can actually turn this franchise into a winner before you go overboard.
    I believe the Raiders have a chance to surprise the league this year. But only if TP6 provides that spark and DMAC is healthily and returns to form. And if that happens , Al’s guys will help you anoint RM as the king!!

    pryor is worlds better than palmer and lienart combined

    thats why the other two are gone

    peace

    – so that means Pryor, Palmer and Lienart were better than Campbell, that’s why he was let go ?
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    and that’s why Stabler was traded away for Pastorini cause Pastorini was better than Snake.

    nah, just a 1 year min deal

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Then you read other “media writers” say pryor has thrown a duck..

    Flynn has underthrown a TD to Denarious moore who had to slow up .. has batted passes down.

    I will say both Qb’s need more consticency.. and they are both probaly tired of PRACTICING ALREADY.

    FANS NEED TO SEE GAMES NOW

    Like I said, you haven’t seen them play and you haven’t seen Reg enough to say they will be bad. Carter was injured last year and could play pretty well this year. See, I don’t say they will be good like you say they will be bad. I say they could do well. I say that, because you and I don’t know. You proclaim they will be bad with no real evidence.

    Why not? Best 53. Especially when you factor in Hayden’s health uncertainty and the fact that Porter has missed his fair share of time.
