3 Raider cuts have landed elsewhere already.

QUENTIN MOSES TO CARDINALS

You wouldn't think cast-offs from the worst team in the league would be hot commodities, but three players who were waived by the Raiders yesterday were quickly snatched up today, headlined by third-round pick Quentin Moses.

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that Moses, who as the first pick of the third round was the highest-drafted player to be released yesterday, has been claimed off waivers by the Arizona Cardinals. That gives the Cardinals another team's high third-round pick after they got rid of their own high third-round pick, linebacker Buster Davis.

Schefter also reports that guard Kevin Boothe, who started 14 games for the Raiders as a rookie last season but was waived yesterday, has been claimed by the Giants. And safety Eric Frampton, the Raiders' fifth-round pick out of Washington State, has been claimed by the Lions.

Have all signed Practice Squad contracts with the Packers, we have one spot left.

Also Noah Herron was placed on IR today meaning our top 3 RBs are hurt with the status of Jackson and Morency still unkown for the opener.

yeah b/c i'm sure nobody would have noticed that they were releasing someone they really wanted, it happens all the time... god the media is ridiculous in trying to spin a story. I guess a player not holding up and getting outplayed isn't interesting.

I think either Brayton or Chris Johnson are gone as soon as Rhodes has to be activated of the suspension list, although I'm leaning towards Johnson.

The Miami Dolphins have claimed WR Greg Camarillo (Chargers), OL Cory Lekkerkerker (Chargers) and OL Gene Murczkowksi (Patriots) off waivers.

Surprise Surprise Cam Cameron takes two offensive players from the Chargers

The Cincinnati Bengals have claimed LB Anthony Schlegel (Jets), RB Clifton Dawson (Colts) and CB David Jones (New Orleans) off waivers

The Green Bay Packers have claimed RB John Kuhn (Steelers) off waivers.

The Philadelphia Eagles have claimed S J.R. Reed (Giants) and LB Pago Togafau (Cardinals) off waivers.....The Philadelphia Eagles have signed DT Kimo von Oelhoffen (Jets).

I guess Philly wanted to see if Reed could come back healthy before signing him back

What a terrible year to be Quentin Moses.

I heard some stuff about this. Just a little bit of football knowledge will dispel it though. If the Raiders did make a mistake, wouldn't they have picked him up on the waiver wire? They have first dibs on the wire since they drafted 1st. Unless they're suggesting the Raiders both accidentally released him and also forgot to claim him back.

I think that's more a credit to Thomas and how he played for the Saints such that they couldn't let him go.

He will get waived when they work on an injury settlement. He was easily the worst player on our defense last year and he was outplayed by former UDFA James Butler. There are also rumors that he was terribly selfish and a horrible locker room guy. Giants are just cutting ties with what they admitted was a bad signing.

It is a credit to how Thomas played but it is also a knock on Pittman and how he basically just didn't show up in camp. Thomas was able to break tackles, find holes, and block better than Pittman. Pittman was usually taken down by the first tackler, couldn't pass protect , and had trouble finding the holes more so than Thomas did.
All in all Pierre Thomas picked up the system quicker and displayed more talent sooner and more often than Antonio Pittman.

Not to mention that Pittman showed a bit of an attitude problem, butting heads with Sean Payton which is a BIG no-no.
