Raiders add Baker to wounded D-line

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, August 5th, 2013 at 1:24 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    ha, guys cant get over it they can let go of the idea that the nfl and the hybrid offense is now demanding that the brothas play.

    is this because they fear if the game continues in that direction the majority of nfl qbs will be …..non white?

    clearly
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    Speaking for myself. You’re wrong. I don’t care who the QB is as long as he can play and help the team win. Not everyone has a racial agenda you know. You’re making to many generalizations.

    I’ve got to say I’m really excited about Pryor. He had already looked like a man amongst boys with his athleticism. I was skeptical about his passing skills but by all accounts he’s made a remarkable leap with those. Seems to have an incredibly great attitude and will to be great. Al’s last pick. Let’s give him the reins.

    wouldve couldve should’ve…that should be our motto ..let me know how long it takes until a semi in here is allowed to form an opinion. BC RM team went 4-12 last year and you still jumped into his lap and anointed him our savior . Guess your allowed to have an opinion without seeing actual results. Everyone else is held to a higher standard
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    You spend to much time saying I want to hold you down instead of debating. No one wants you to be quite. Say what you have to say and accept the rebuff. Grow up dude.

    the last thing you do is hold me down, your logic just cant hold up because it has no merit. Keep blogging Semi bc that what we all are.

    Pryor throws a duck and Adams picks it off …

    What did I tell you? This kid wont let me lie. Adams is solid.

    ——————————————————-

    Both Adams and Chekwa had a good day, its going to actually be a hard cut come time
    ———————–
    Bye bye Hanson.

    ———————

    I’d keep all three:

    - Porter
    - Jenkins
    - Hayden
    - Hanson
    - Adams
    - Chekwa
    - Taiwan

    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.

    @@@@@@

    I’d Iike to see that list. But then maybe it’s only 3 safeties? Or 3 QBs. Means we lose Reggie smith and/or McLoin. Probably a reach that we keep 4 QBs anyway, but cuts will be hard. Can’t get enough CBs tho. We certainly proved that last year. Defensive lineman either, apparently….

    so agree, Pryor is giving this franchise some hope. I feel its gonna be a rollarcoaster ride but one worth taking. So hoping Al’s last pick was one of his best

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Like i said even if FLYNN starts.. no way PRYOR is gonna be on the sidelines the whole game.. look for packagages like the NINERS DID WITH KAEPERNICK last year.

    look for goaline/ pistol formations

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Henry Wofford ‏@HenryWoffordCSN 2h 1 hour into the Raiders practice and Terrelle Pryor has been the best quarterback on the field today. strong arm and accurate

    will be on 95.7 the game

    No argument here. Even if Pryor’s not consistent enough to start, Olson should be able to make use of his incredible athleticism.

  • JLofty

    Yeah Plunk now we just need a semi to grab us at the curb a d take us to the ‘gate. Ha!
    I suppose a cab would only be about $10 to the lot on heggenburger. Then we only need refreshments. Maybe B would spot us some Cognac or whatever he says he’s pounding in the coli lot…

    I’d love to see Pryor and King get the nod over Flynn and Kluwe. What can I say, much like AD I’m a swing for the fences and roll with the upside kind of guy.

    flynn has many balls batted down by dbs it seems he just lacks the zip to beat tight coverage on most throws

    pryor wont have that issue, people here claimed he threw ‘floaters” but he has dispelled that lie in short order.

    pryor has absolute heat ray of an arm

    It isn’t a “lie” to say Pryor threw some floaters in SD game. He did. So what. All that matters is what he’s doing now it sounds good. He isn’t perfect. He doesn’t have to be.

    Pryor starts as QB for the Raiders week one 2013

    Marcel Reece just said players are tired of practicing against eachother.. they cant wait for the games… they “grinding” though at training camp.

    I figure most players are tired of practice by this point.

    Just saw Kevin kolb slipped on a mat yesterday and screwed up his knee. Things could always be worse. He could be on our roster. He makes Ford look like cal Ripken.

    Since its a Friday night, and a bunch of other teams will be playing, and the cowboys were just on, I doubt I will be on NFL network. Can you still get the 4 games for $20 online tho? I did that last year. On the East Coast, so figured I’d do it again.

    plenty of intersting storylines on fri. CWOOD back, Taiwan JONES at Corner..

    how the OLINE LOOKS, starting D i know hayden and some guys will be missing but should be good

    Oh really? Why did Reg go 4-12? Was it because he is a bad GM or was it because he had a horrible situation? Why do some here want him gone based on one year in a bad situation. Why is it that players can take time to mature but a rookie HC and GM can’t have some time.

  • 0ak r8rs

    Yea. Cowboys looked good yesterday. And Romo and none of this starting WRs (I think) took a snap. They gutted Miami w the run. Could be ugly without sims and walker. Watch, all week we will have to hear “shouldn’t have let Seymour and Kelly go”. Jeez

    Then again, it’s the cowboys, so it’s unlikely they put two good games on a row together.
