Early word on potential Raiders roster moves — updated

By Steve Corkran
Saturday, August 31st, 2013 at 12:06 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    Go get him Reggie

  • morilla

    One roster spot isn’t going to make or brake this team. They could roll with 4 if need be. Kick the tires on all of them.

    One of them already has tread showing and needs some fix a flat. Cough, cough Flynn.

    SAY WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!? Is this true????

    Man, what a move by Reggie. That’s like saying you are gonna bomb a country and then after everybody in the world tells you that it’s a horrible idea and no one will back you, you decide to save face and blame constitution by saying you need approval from congress first.

  • Raider E

    I was doing the pulling Dakota’s signature move. Making sh*t up for no reason, but I’m happy to make some happy for just a secong this season.

    The U.S. has had 192 military actions in its history, and very few had Congressional approval.

    And Republicans did not care until we got a black president.

    Tyler Wilson indicates he’s stay in Oakland. Looks like they will keep 4 QBs barring a surprise trade

  • Hamstrung Harry

    @BWilliamsonESPN: Four QBs on a thin roster isn’t ideal, but I knew #Raiders couldn’t justify cutting a rookie QB who was 4th-round pick

    Oh, I don’t care about any of that racial stuff. I don’t buy into that at all. I just thought it was really funny that all of a sudden there needs to be approval from congress to do anything. When all along it was said that the bombas were coming regardless. And they might still come. But the excuse for the delay is what I am finding amusing here.

    Raiders and Dolphins haven’t announced anything yet. Maybe Philbin changed his mind.

    =====================

    If we had found someone to throw him the rock, very different. But without that key piece to that puzzle, CJ would’ve been just another DHB.

  • arkraider

    Nice John Wayne Gacy reference there Dakota! Had a friend in Memphis back in the day who had a JWG obsession going who said and would imitate that when he got caught he said “I’ve been a bad bad boy” and I had a friend from Arkansas that worked for Gacy remodeling our local drugstore who got offered more work to join him in Chicago— he turned him down! — lucky guy — he would have been his next victim

    How do you figure? We got Hayden and Watson (who will be starting in eight days) and they got Dion Jordan (who can’t even get on the field).

    Not unexpected. As somebody wrote yesterday, coaches don’t say “significant injury” lightly. He either tore something, broke something, or both.
