  • JOn Wooah

    Who cares about Ross the guys is terrible.. stop giving him press..

  • 92101_Raider

    Pick up cb Kelvin Hayden from Bears?

  • JV.

    This last one. 4 tackles

  • _Mista_

    Practice squad is about the most meaningless thing ever talked about.

  • RediaR


  • PlunkforHOF

    Really improving his chance of landing on another team

  • aig-raiders

    better than Wilson, Harris and that Robinson dude we put on a scholarship over a year. If you can play, you can play.

  • xraided

    short answer, no

  • plunkhead

    Scroll down Ross’s wife went on the warpath

  • RediaR

    Smart money is on Trent Edwards resigning at the last second and getting the start.

  • Papertiger

    Yeah I really like Shelby Harris, but I wouldn’t be upset if we took Sam over CJ Wilson. The guy was a defensive MVP in the SEC.

  • Thec

    Ahhhh, spy vs spy stuff…Subterfuge, trickery, slight of hand…

  • RaiderGuy50


  • Thec

    how much do we bet???lol

  • r8eray

    His agent needs to step in and put a muzzle on him. .. just like Mariah did to Nick!

  • PlunkforHOF

    Fatty Lumpkin was Tom Bombadil’s horse.

  • Gdog

    “Green” PFF cuts: Kistler: 2.0, Filimoeatu: 1.6, Lumpkin: 1.6.

  • Elliot

    Should mix well with Carr

  • RaiderGuy50

    that’s the thing — there really shouldn’t be – we all know who should start.

  • J Hill

    Yeah, Dowling on the squad is a complete head scratcher.
    S is a BIG concern.

  • _Mista_

    True but you have to cut the worse of the 2. Dowling was complete garbage.

  • OhioRaider

    Anybody remember Cork’s curiously puff piece announcement of Little’s signing? Almost as if he were describing another player.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Fortunately, I unfollowed him as soon as he was cut.

  • RediaR

    Robinson was already cut. I’m just pushing the bottom of the DL roster off the board.

    I was never big on Sam coming out of college, but for a bottom roster developmental pick, sure. Wish the Rams had cut Westbrooks instead. Oh well.

  • Gdog

    Ha: we were arguing about this a few weeks ago. Pretty much as expected. Thanx for posting.

  • Thec

    DA out smarts all, this will get us an extra win or 3.

  • Elliot

    Major more dire than CB

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    New post.

  • r8eray

    God loves everyone!
    Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

  • r8ter4evr

    He read plays well and was around the ball always

  • RediaR

    Captain Cork.

  • Papertiger

    Exactly. None of us are saying the kid’s going to start or anything, but he’s definitely worth a low-end roster spot.

  • aig-raiders

    I know but the point was RM put a non producing Robinson on the roster for over a year. Here is a guy (SAM) that can get to the qb that is available.

  • _Mista_


  • JV.


  • RediaR


  • JV.

    Don’t follow scrubs on twitter only guys I like.. Like sio, Streater, MJD, butler etc.

  • I’ll bet their are better cuts from other teams

  • Thomas Bennett

    Our Average is 27. We have 11 players over 29, with Woodson (37), Jano (36), Rogers (33), Condo (33), Schaub (33), Smith (32), Barnes (32), Tuck (31), Boothe (31), Penn (31), and James Jones (30) being the “old mens” club. They also have 117 years of NFL experience between the 11 of them…lol
