Raiders re-sign DE, add OL to practice squad

The Raiders re-signed defensive end Brian Sanford and added him to their 53-man roster Wednesday. He fills the void created by the releas of offensive lineman Jack Cornell.
Speaking of Cornell, he was re-signed today and placed back on the Raiders practice squad.
Confused? Don’t be. The Raiders waived Sanford before the Steelers game and signed Cornell from the practice squad because of the need for offensive line depth that day.
Now that the Raiders made it through the Steelers game, they are right back where they were at this time last week, with Sanford on the 53-man roster and Cornell on the practice squad.
In other news, former Raiders safety Michael Huff was waived by the Baltimore Ravens this morning. He recorded five tackles in limited action. He lost his starting job after a disastrous performance against the Denver Broncos in the regular-season opener.
It’s very unlikely that the Raiders will make a run at bringing back Huff, regardless the salary.

    He definitely lost his head…

  • Papertiger

    What happened to Seymour?

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    only player Reggie has let go that’s been a success is the one we criticized the most> Heyward-Bey.

  • Charlie

    I enjoy the blog during victory week.
    The haters disappear.
    HST is brain dead. Most likely a troll Jags fan.

    I knew you were going to ask that

  • bcz24

    He has 18 catches for 190 yards and 1 TD through 8 games… what success has he had that I am missing?

  • bcz24

    Wouldn’t play for what he was worth.

    Burris and Watson practicing; No Pashos or Gurode. No sign of Veldheer

  • Papertiger

    Looks like McCants better PUT HIS PANTS!

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Fvk Y’all.

  • Charlie

    DHB was paid $8.2 million in his final year with the Raiders.
    He has 18 catches for 190 yards this year and is being asked to step it up in Indy.
    He stole Mr. Davis’ money and is another marginal talent.
    NOT A SUCCESS.

  • spiff

    hopefully Watson gets through the week……….

  • Charlie

    Retired.
    Could not even practice let alone play.

  • Papertiger

    Someone really needs to bust out the RoMac and Des Bryant mugshots for their avatar on Halloween.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Still don’t lump Seymour in there. Overpaid? Yeah, but not by that much. End of his career? Obviously.

    I just don’t think he was a bad influence or a bad guy.

  • bcz24

    Can’t hate DHB for Al’s mistake. The kid worked his a$$ off for us every day.

  • Papertiger

    So what should we call this badāss defense of ours?

    The Silver Curtain, perhaps?

  • spiff

    Watson , Nix , Wiz, Barnes, McCants……….. hmmm.

  • Papertiger

    Yeah. He took some hits for us too, unlike that matador Huff!

  • SlashNHack

    Fan since 1976… My dad changed the channel from Land of the Lost to NFL coverage so I learned to love the Raiders

  • Raider Rocker

    Now give us the comparison to todays top 10-15

  • DJ Johnny

    Except at the most important position….QB.
    Flynn was a disaster pickup; but give Reg credit for dumping him.
    I know…”no one else was out there’.

  • HGDaddy

    no Pashos?

  • Raider Rocker

    Marginal success. If you can call it that.

  • rifflicks

    the Dangerfield D….no respect at all

  • SlashNHack

    The Silver Lining :-) pleasant surprise in a mediocre season

  • _Mista_

    Veldheer is at least another 2-4 weeks if not longer why you looking for him?

    The black wall of pain…

  • Papertiger

    Old man is having hip issues.

  • Raider Rocker

    Any player who’s nickname is “Turd” should be suspect. ;)

  • spiff

    if he can suit up . RT. McCants back on the bench.

  • DJ Johnny

    Too “Steeler-y”

  • Jon Train

    JT and The Outlaws

  • Raider Rocker

    Booooooo!

  • Papertiger

    Tarver’s Carvers?

  • HGDaddy

    the Reggieme

  • DJ Johnny

    Oooooh. That does sound cool.

  • Papertiger

    Yeah, and the silver part makes it sound a little sleazy. We’re not running a strip club here.

  • HGDaddy

    McCants is actually filling in OK for Pashos.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Ouch.

  • 0ak R8rs

    I wonder if Ravens fans r calling for Ozzie Newsome’s job after signing Huff for $6 million+ and cutting him after 90 minutes of playtime? Yet another Raider castoff that sucked balls to begin with, and only looked decent on our team, because again, it sucked balls.

    EXTEND REGGIE NOW!!!

  • Charlie

    Back in the seventies our defense was nicknamed the 11 angry men and the secondary the soul patrol.
    Have a ways to go before we can give ourselves a name.
    Lets just beat the Eagles.

    Found a bar on Isla Mujares to watch the last SuperBowl appearance. Of course, all the Caribeaners were pulling for Tampa Bay.
