    Ok

  • oklahomaRaider18

    Yea!!

  • EMRaiders

    That wasn’t Cork, it was Jerry.

  • Kirk

    Perfect opportunity to trade Flynn.

  • DJ Johnny

    How bout GETTING some guys to help what is widely considered to be the worst roster in football?

  • http://wix.com/ggeden/ggeden GG

    kluwe will be released btw

  • WESTRAIDER

    2 punters?

  • alex7

    King will learn to hold, be a better punter than Kluwe, is younger, and makes more sense going forward.

  • http://raiders.com Seymour Bush

    No real surprises. Other than keeping 4 Q’s. Mcgloin easily could have made the practice squad.

  • alex7

    Flynn trade update!

    Reggie traded a 5th rounder to the Seahawks for Flynn, who will start week 1 vs Colts.

  • DJ Johnny

    “We’re set. At the end of the day we feel this roster gives us the best opportunity to put us in a position where at the end of the day we can be in the best position to possibly give us an opportunity to perhaps enjoy a measure of success”.

    RRS 53 man roster prediction:

    QB: Flynn Pryor Wilson
    RB: McFadden Jennings Stewart
    FB: Reece Olawale
    WR: Moore Streater Butler Ford Criner Holmes
    TE: Ausberry Rivera Mastrud Kasa
    OT: Watson Barnes Barron Smith
    OG: Nix Bergstrom Gurode Brisiel
    C: Wisniewski
    DT: Sims Walker McGee Bilukidi
    DE: Houston Hunter Carter Bass
    OLB: Moore Maiava Burnett
    MLB: Roach Gaither
    CB: Hayden Porter Jenkins Adams Chekwa
    FS: Woodson Young
    SS: Branch Ross
    ST: Janikowski Kluwe Condo Jones

    thats 53 players and WR Holmes is suspended the first 4 games … so that leaves room for Jenkins or Vernon (at first)

    If/When Veldheer comes back, Willie Smith gets the axe

    If/When Burris comes back, another player will be on IR by then – probably Ford

    I got a few wrong

    now way reggie rolls into week 1 with two punters. HE WONT
    =======================================================

    Obviously. I hope. It’s just interesting they couldn’t choose one.

    King better punter than Kluwe.
    Kluwe, holding, and Seabass better for the Raiders.

  • MarcusAllen

    Anyone gotta Kluwe on King?

  • JB

    Richard Gordon TE cut a surprise but not really a surprise. Too many TE’s on roster that can BOTH block & catch. Besides, Gordon was from the AD ledger.

  • Chris in NY

    Biggest head-scratchers for me are waiving Bass and keeping two punters (for now).

    Not sure what Reggie’s plan is for an edge rusher, but he needs one. Quick. Bass seemed like one of the only guys on the roster with any hope in that role. Interesting that we kept Ryan Robinson though.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Peter King ‏@SI_PeterKing 3m Raiders want a draft choice for one of their punters, Kluwe or King. Remotely possible any team would do that?Retweeted by Vic Tafur

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    I knew Carter would be cut.. looked slow through the whole preseason

  • RaiderRockstar

    what a terrible copy/paste job by Jerry!

    hopefully Steve has a follow-up post to make it look professional (and clear)

  • morilla

    Seabass won’t be too happy if King sticks around. King better call Shane up and pay for some holding practice.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    they need to ask pryor to move to ATHLETE, HBACK, TE, WR ..next season when they get a Starting QB

    He is the best athlete on the field hands down or one of the top 3 everygame. He can outjump as good as megatron.

    HE would be an animal in the RZ. You should have seen his two catches in college

    ———————————-

    Flynn should start, so Pryor can sit back and learn what not to do while coming in as a change of pace for 10-12 plays a game.

    This will give Pryor the best chance to be the unquestioned starter after the bye week.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Start McGloin in week 4 and roll through there

    Definitely the worst decision today.

    Kluwe is on last legs, you just drafted Bass who has promise. FFS reggie, really?

  • Chris in NY

    I also thought Gaither looked like a pretty decent backup MLB.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I thought Bergs would only be out a few weeks?

    same with Hanson … both placed on I.R.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Expect 5-7 new raiders by monday

  • JB

    Willie Smith should have been cut day 1 – last year. He’s always been totally inept.

  • http://wix.com/ggeden/ggeden GG

    Esecially as Raiders are on 52 roster right now too, they couldve kept Bass and 2 punters. Reggie d’oh.

    That has nothing to do with anything, and you know it.

    You didn’t have ‘em keeping 4 QB’s and 2 punters?
    All credibility out the window.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Willie Smith got waived/injured

    so who is the backup tackle?

    Alex Barron backs up both Watson & Barnes??

    sorry Purv

    I failed you once again. Did Palmer make AZ’s 53 ??

  • RaiderRockstar

    Gaither & Boyko both cut. Burris on the PUP list

    who is Roach’s backup MLB??

  • Raider E

    I only count 3 misses RRS.

    Carter, Bass, and Smith.

    I think teams generally only carry 8 on the oline.

    Interesting. Hard to believe you could get much for Kluwe. Conditional 7th rounder at best. Some team with brains would maybe offer a 5th for King.

  • RaiderRockstar

    all offseason Jerry told us the pass rush was coming from Carter & Bass … possibly Sio Moore (injured toe)

    guess not!

    “I failed you once again. Did Palmer make AZ’s 53 ??”

    Of course he did RR he is the only QB who can play Demesne and Special Teams!

  • WESTRAIDER

    Mavia?

  • Just Fire Baby

    Well I guess Andre Carter won’t lead the team in sacks, lol

  • http://www.christianitydisproved.com/ Silverandblack666

    Of course he did RR he is the only QB who can play Defense and Special Teams!

  • mcthompso

    I was surprised both Carter and Bass didn’t make the cut…More surprised about Bass than Carter, really–but he is a practice squad candidate…as bad as our roster is, I’m not sure about this 4 qb and 4 te thing. I think RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit is right…there will be some new signings.

  • http://www.christianitydisproved.com/ Silverandblack666

    “Mavia?”

    Put on some weight…

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Raiders Beat ‏@RaidersBeat 1m #Raiders will probably have to settle with an 8th rounder for Kluwe or King. Teams barely draft punters, much less trade for one.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Levi Damien‏@LeviDamien2m
    There aren’t a lot of good players on #Raiders. Keep the ones you like until teams make their moves. Have better chance of making it to PS.

    That’s about the way it is.

    Maiva got big on that island brah.. he needs cardio nah bra.. no more heinken for him
