Early word on potential Raiders roster moves — updated

The Raiders, as well as other NFL teams, aren’t required to announce their roster moves in getting to the maximum 53 players until 3 p.m. PDT.
However, that deadline doesn’t prevent word from leaking out well in advance.
On Saturday morning, linebacker Chase Thomas Tweeted that he has been released by the Raiders. Also, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch said rookie defensive end David Bass also has been waived.
It bears noting that erroneous information has a way of making its way into the conversation. So, keep that in mind between now and the time the Raiders make things official.
If accurate, the release of Bass comes off as a bit of a surprise, given the Raiders huge need for pure pass-rushers and the fact Bass flashed on occasion during exhibition games.
Then again, it’s conceivable that the Raiders are banking on the fact that they can sneak Bass through waivers and then re-sign him Sunday and place him on their practice squad.
Now that the deadline has passed, the Raiders said that they don’t intend to announce their roster moves until 6 p.m. PDT or so.
Rookie quarterback Matt McGloin just Tweeted that he made the roster. That means the Raiders are going to carry four quarterbacks, unless they plan on cutting fourth-round draft pick Tyler Wilson.

    Would like to see vernon go to the PS.That catch he made getting drilled in the back was pretty impressive,but he might be too slow.

  • jonathaanv_

    vernon is gonna be picked up quickly, only reason we let him go is because we aren’t gonna cut anyone we have now.

    Did Kirk Cousins suddenly get good or something? I thought he was a 4th round pick? Redskins trying to hype him into a first round pick in a trade?

    Gruden threw some fire into the hype when he said he’d give up a 1st rounder for him.

    —————————–

    Gruden pumps everybody up. He would have nice things to say about John Wayne Gacy.

    Gruden: “Look, I think this guy is getting a bad wrap. This guy makes the best of his crawl space and BBQ pit, and heck, if you are having a party who doesn’t want a clown there? That’s the kind of glue guy every team needs!”

    haha, well played

  • elraidmanhattan

    Great thought it would have been ludicrous to cut wilson.

  • Raider E

    Who syas we are keeping 4 QB’s. Can RM be dumb enough to trade/cut Flynn or Pryor, and go int the season with 2 rookies as backups?

  • the famous dr robert

    Looks like Pryor will be dealt.

    Wilson could easily be the best QB on the roster right now.

  • elraidmanhattan

    Reggie would be a moron to trade pryor. Odds on Flynn being dealt?

    Maybe Flynn, although Pryor does have more value.

  • logic82

    “I just think that Moore is limited in his decision making. He’s still serviceable but with a lesser set of the plays in the book, removing those where the WR has to silently adjust based on seeing the same read as the QB.”
    ====================================================
    Well we know your 2nd “hope” Wilson is flat out stupid. Wonder what his Wonderlik score was?

    As for Flynn. A flat out thieving thug. Lying and cheating stealing money from the organization. He knew his elbow was toast but he parlayed it into big time money. You would think these people would be civilized enough to be grateful for the position they’ve been given and not revert to their native habit of stealing.

    So what, the count is like this?

    QB – 4
    RB – 3
    FB – 3
    WR – 5
    OL – 8
    TE – 3
    ——-
    = 26 on offense

    LB – 6
    DL – 6
    CB – 5
    S – 4
    ——
    = 21 on D

    K – 1
    P – 1
    LS – 1
    ——
    = 3 on ST

    O – 26
    D – 21
    ST – 3
    ——-
    = 50

    So there’s 3 spots left, what position do you think should get it?
