  • And the Oakland Raider's sign....

    Former Viking/Raven Travis Taylor. I new we weren't sure whose was going to be our 2nd or 3rd. I wanted Keyshane Johnson, but the upside with Taylor is he's younger and more durible.

    This is great news, we signed him for the league minimum and he was productive last year. And hopefully this means we will finally cut Whitted.

    Porter
    Curry
    BMW
    Johnnie Lee Higgins
    Gabriel
    Taylor
    Morant
    Francis




    Whitted

      I don't know if anyone noticed in that article but we also signed a RB. Probably won't last through training camp, but what caught my eye is that he had 62 receptions last season which is quite a bit for a college RB.

        I found this tidbit very interesting

        He is expected to compete for playing time behind Porter and Curry amongst a crowded receiving corps that includes Doug Gabriel, Alvis Whitted, Johnnie Morant, Carlos Francis and Johnathan Holland.
        What name is missing from that list? hmmm

          The guy that is injured perhaps? What are you doing here? Do you actually have anything productive to add?

          Oldie but a goodie.

              He's Talking about Mike Williams, but the list leaves off many WRs on the current roster, it's not like that person had personal insight into our final roster. Mike Williams will def. have competition for playing time with Taylor and Curry being established players in the league. Does that mean we're going to cut a guy because he's not mentioned in an article? No. I think Taylor was a great addition, and statistically he's our most "proven" receiver. I'm interested to see the final outcome, if Williams does get cut, no biggie, we spent a 4th rounder on him that we got from a trade, so no loss really. Same with Taylor, we paid him the vets min. and gave no gauranteed money. We've played this offseason really smart, we have a lot of guys that we got for cheap that still have major potential to make an impact in this league.

                Ya, that went without saying. I was making the point that the list leaves off other receivers, such as JLH. his feeble attempt to gloat fell far short of his intended target.

                    Hopefully Whitted is gone. I was hoping Will Buchanon could make the team but it looks like thats not probable at this point.

                      Right now we have a lot of quality WR's and some other guys with the potential to be good so it will be intersting to see who makes the cut. How many WR's do you guys think will be on our active roster at the start of the season?

                        Im guessing it would be 6.

                          I wasn't attempting to gloat at all. Sorry you guys took it that way

                          I also realize that if Mike Williams ends up washing out with you, it's no big loss, especially since McCown looks like he will start for at least a while and the fourth-rounder you gave up will prove to be decent value.

                          I guess I was just trying to stimulate conversation on the Oakland viewpoint of Williams, I probably should have realized there's nothing to have a viewpoint on yet since he strained his uterus (sorry, cheap shot, my bad) in the first practice.

                            Well as stated in an article, before he was injured in practice he was showing off his hands pretty well, a hamstring is nothing if you don't rush it and theses things happen, Curry has pulled his now as well. Williams will have ample time to prove what he needs to, it's possible he may win the #2 spot if he works hard enough for Kiffin. He's definitely got some competition w/ the Taylor addition as they both are flankers though.
