Raiders add three free agents


Wide receivers David Gilreath and RashaanVaughn, along with kicker/punter Michael Palardy, were signed by the Raiders Thursday.

Gilreath (5-foot-9, 170 pounds) originally signed with Indianapolis as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin and in 2011 set Big Ten records for kickoff returns (135) and kickoff return yards (3,025). He has also had camp stops with Tampa Bay, Buffalo and St. Louis.

Vaughn, an Oakland native who played at Washington High in Fremont, College of San Mateo and at Oregon, was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Jets last season and eventually added to their practice squad.

Palardy, undrafted out of Tennessee, was 37 of 50 for his career on field goal attempts and averaged 42.9 yards on 117 punts in four seasons.

To make room on the roster, the Raiders waived San Jose State wide receiver Noel Grigsby, Stanford punter Daniel Zychlinski, and wide receiver Jared Green.

    They are with the exception of DJ Hayden, who was unable to leave the hangar because of a Boot they put on his landing gear.

    Your President.

    In recent weeks, a tide of young, unaccompanied minors crossing the
    Texas border illegally has pushed the US immigration system to its
    breaking point. Unable to cope with the volume of children crossing the
    border without their parents, immigration authorities have had to find
    emergency solutions, such as housing thousands in a San Antonio Air
    Force base, a California Navy base, and a makeshift detention center in
    Nogales, Ariz

    Great article. Thanks for posting the link.
    Madden is one of a kind. I always hoped that someone would write a really fair but thorough biography of Al Davis, one which covers his professional life and personal life. Madden is probably the one person who is key to being able to discuss Al the man and Al the football mind and IF there is anyone out there who is researching/writing about Al, I hope they have interviewed Madden extensively.
