Wilson, Kluwe off the roster

The Raiders have apparently reduced their glut of quarterbacks and punters by waiving fourth-round draft pick Tyler Wilson and releasing punter Chris Kluwe.

The Raiders have not announced any transactions, but are expected to do so later Sunday. Profootballtalk.com reported Wilson would be waived, and Kluwe congratulated Marquette King on his Twitter account on winning the punting job.

Wilson performed well in offseason, non-contact workouts but was outperformed by Matt McGloin, an undrafted free agent out of Penn State. He becomes the second member of the draft class to be waived, along with seventh-round selection David Bass.

Bass was claimed off waivers by the Chicago Bears. Wilson, if he were to unclaimed, could be added to the Raiders practice squad. The Raiders paid Wilson a $491,000 signing bonus.

    On another note: let’s just say for the sake of argument, that Allen and Co decide to go with Pryor. And, let’s just say, that some of my observations about Pryor are correct: namely that he is VERY suspect as a passer, and that once NFL DC’s and ones game plan him, he will make a stick figure look like a modern 3D movie.

    The Raiders have Pitt, in NYG, in Houston, in Dallas later in the year. If the Raiders don’t start strong, they really could be in for a seriously bad year. Bottom line, unless Pryor comes out and is the answer, will starting Pryor early in the season, cost Allen his job?

    I can’t help but wonder if the other 31 GM’s are feeling sorry for Reg or laughing at him.

    Seahawks are laughing. They milked a pick and got out of Flynn’s bad contract, they knew Flynn was barely a back-up in this league and played Reggie just right..
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    Unbelievablly not true. Seahawks wanted Flynn in the beginning and paid him big money. He got beat out by Wilson,. Hawks got lucky with Wilson. Reg picked Flynn up for pennies and probably knows Flynn is a stop gap until next year.

    There is no ‘debate’ – the apologists will take any amount of losing and claim its Al’s fault – the only question is how much more of this before they admit they are wrong. This is a 4-12 team *at best* with no sign of going anywhere .. But we’ll just continue to ‘wait and see’, despite the obvious flubs across the board, but yeah lets let it all play out..

    Reggie has done some good things, make no mistake about it.

    This draft looks like a winner, I liked it from the get go, Hayden, Watson, Sio, Kasa, Rivera, McGee and Butler make 7 players on the team out of 10 picks, Murray we’ll have to wait, Bass and Wilson should have been kept IMO but nevermind.

    Undrafted find like Streater, Nix and Ryan Robinson were nice too.

    That’s all I have.

  • Cervantes74

    Like both of the pick ups today.

    Hate the way we got to them.

    And with Leonhart now on the PS we could have had both of these guys and still retained Bass and Robinson.

    Reggie screwed the pooch again.

    WTF? Try to trade Kluwe and Wilson BEFORE Saturday.

    Or at the least Keep Wilson and Bass and cut McGloin. He would have made it to the PS.

    For fun, why don’t you go on the radio, let us all know when, and defend Flynn again?

    That was seriously funny when you compared Flynn to Brady, and both hosts at the same time laughed at said WHAT??? ARE YOU CRAZY?, and dumped your call.

    Hey, prove me wrong, little boy.
    Call your “good buddies” and make a pitch for Flynn, and repeat the comparison of “90 qb rating ” qb’s, how Flynn and Ben and Brady should be mentioned in the same breath.

    I know you won’t.
    You know you won’t.
    Everyone knows you won’t, lol.

    Because you know how the first time turned out.

    As far as this year yes, there were bigger needs that needed to be addressed, he went with his “board” instead. That board is not looking so good right now.
    ================================
    And what is wrong with this draft are you blind one fourth-round pick didn’t work out

    why you say the whole draft of blown up open your eyes

    three years from now we will know how good draft this was injuries are a part of the game
    remember when Al was here some of the wasted picks Heyward Bay seventh overall pick

    Doug Jolley wood let walk to Seattle and turned around and sign a free-agent from the Giants
    that was injured most of time and couldn’t play

  • MarcusAllen

    Marley – you are absolutely correct. There was no market for Kluwe in FA.

    I understand picking him up to see how King measures. Fine. But at end of preseason if you cant swing a deal, make a decision and cut one. No trade was coming and lost a potential player in Bass. Maybe they didn’t care about Bass. Some twitter hacks say we did. Bears will take a look.

    But fact is no market on those two punters.

    ‘Mumbles the Clown’ getting played over and over…
    Cuts a guy at a position of dire need (Bass) to keep a punter/QB with ZERO trade value…
    This guy is Matt Millen at Detroit BAD!
    DA might have started to figure it out and is going togo ‘renegade’ to save his own arse…
    Signing Flynn with the gympy arm must’ve been the final piece for DA to put it all together…
    Mumbles will sacrifice him to save him and the gravy train posse’s skin…

  • Cervantes74

    For the record I was supporting Reggie hard core all the way up until he gave Flynn more money before he ever played a down.

    That was some BS.

    Then getting lower value for Carson than he did Flynn.

    Big time red flag for a GM.

    Icing on the cake has been cutting Wilson over McGloin and leaving Bass out there to be claimed while holding onto an extra punter and scrub QB.

    Those kinds of strategic errors can’t be tolerated.

    1. Not giving Hue at least a public interview
    2. Hiring a rookie HC with 1 year of DC experience
    3. Letting the rookie coach hire his own coaches, but I understand why.
    4. Going ZBS with DMAC
    5. Bringing in Knapp
    6. The Flynn trade vs the Palmer trade
    7. Wasting a pick on Wilson in the 4th round with so many other good players out there.
    8. Waiving Bass with an extra punter and qb on the roster only to then cut both guys a day later.

    The list is growing for RM.

    Another 4-12 or worse and DA is a gonner and RM might not be far behind.

    C/ATT: 16/19
    YRDS : 254
    AVG : 13.4
    TDs : 4
    INTs : 1

    …Bridgewater is worthy of the #1 overall pick to a team in need of a possible franchise caliber QB. Which IMO is still the most important position in football. Even over the freaky talent of Clowney,who looked bad BTW in his debut as McShay ripped into him for his lack of condtioning and taking himself off the field as nauseum. But he is still a great prospect. Just not over a franchise QB prospect.

    Forget Ty Wilson and his 4th round status as well as Davis Bass’s potential.

    * This is the big deal:

    What made the GM think he could trade a Punter for a Draft pick??.

    To my knowledge, nobody in modern NFL history has ever traded for a Punter.

    What was he thinking?.

    Maybe if it was Shane Lechler or the 49ers guy you could get a late pick.

    But Kluwe? who is nothing special or King who is unproven and had trouble holding?.

    Seriously, if we had the first Punter in NFL history worth trading for, why not just keep him and cut the other guy???…Don’t you think the other teams figured that out?….Oh wait, nobody in their right mind would even consider trading for our Punters.
    ==========================================

    You are absolutely correct on this. If 5 QB’s or 3 starting punters somehow got injured during preseason then maybe, maybe, mcKenzie might hold some type of leverage. But that didn’t happen. McKenzie had NO leverage going into this. It was embarrassing. It was like he was sitting at a poker table in Vegas, with every chip he had on the table, and the pit boss comes up right at the end of the hand to tell him his credit card was rejected. Every one KNEW he was about to crap out.

    He couldn’t keep two punters and 4 Q’s going into the season. Wasn’t gonnna happen. So, every other GM held tight, and McKenzie folded. Along with a good Q prospect and a decent DL prospect. As I said earlier, sucks to be us.

    I think your premise is flawed. Reggie hoping for a draft pick is pure speculation by the media and semi’s Nation and league wide.
    Maybe He and April really were torn weighing what was best for this year and what was best for the future.
    And unlike so very many here, is not throwing in the towel on 2013 and thought long and hard about a couple of FG’s here and there, and potential field position,etc.
    If Bass is so good, although out played by Robinson, that Chicago snapped him up, how long was he going to be on our practice squad?
    You guys are funny.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Funny how Reggie defenders keep saying we have no money how are you gonna build the d line.. well the 5th pick in the 4th round would help

    also it would help if you took a legit WR like Quinton Patton who would probaly be a 1 on this team or Kenny Still who has been making play after play for the saints .. would help
