Damn. First reports said a sprained knee. Stevie was the savior of that secondary. Just when everybody was healthy this year for them too back there.

Can the Raiders please take a look into Louis Nzegwu he has three sacks so far in preseason but the Panthers are so stacked at DE they didn't need him.

I had mentioned him about a week ago. Hopefully they at least look into it. He is a bit undersized so kind of like what we got except he is producing already.


Ramon Harewood may be a potential target. Probably better than the depth we have now and he can play OG or OT.

Jamar Chaney was another surprise cut. Wouldnt mind taking a look at him especially if they put Burris on PUP. Let him and Gaither fight for a spot. (again)

Kellen Heard has always been interesting but no rush on him could be had if injury comes up most likely ..

So far in last years and this years free agencies Reggie has done what he could to best fix our problems knowing our limits with draft picks and cap space. But what little he did so far isn't really showing any promising results so far. I hope next year when we have all that cap space, we resign a few of our own but atleast find some good talent to bring in. I know if he follows the GB way he will go the cheap route most likely, something I actually hope he doesn't do with every free agent signing. we need our trenches rebuilt in the worst of ways. All i'm saying is I hope Reggie doesn't go cheap just to put a warm body in a position. I'm starting to wonder a little if he really does know how to spot talent given how bad we have looked so far this preseason. Matt Flynn has disappointed, a few of his draft picks have disappointed.

Not better than anything that's here. Another bust from the Pete Carroll era of USC.

I don't see anything there that helps the Raiders personally. Joe McKnight..... really? Injury prone RB who's shown nothing in the pros.

Don't see Chris hope helping unless we have injuries in the secondary. And dombrowksi comes from San Diego who has a brutal Oline. Also he's the one who whipped by kam Wimbley with same move 3 times lol

Harewood started 5 games for Baltimore last year at LG.

Cool. Lets just stick with what we got then. That sounds better...

I said McKnight cause if he is healthy hes a capable backup with special teams value. When healthy hes better than Stewart or Murray, possibly even Jennings. I think our RB depth sucks tho...

I don't know if these guys would help but some have starting experience, might be an improvement on our current depth, and/or could reach potential with time...

Dombrowski, Batiste, and Richardson are all OTs with starting experience who cant be worse than Barron...

Torn on him. As situational guy may not be bad idea.

Liked Marquis Jackson though before the draft.

At this time Harwood and Nzegwu are probably the two guys I would want the most. J. Chaney probably comes in 3rd there.

So he started 5 games last season and was cut this offseason in the first wave to 75? Help me understand why that is if he had some value?

But I agree the Raiders need to look at any Oline prospect that comes across. Even on a tryout basis. Richardson, Dombroski need not apply. One is washed up the other couldn't make the Chargers rotation who have an equally pathetic Oline as Oakland.

Well nothing on that list is going to upgrade anything IMO. Guys who couldn't make the 75. Harewood would be the only name that might help on the Oline, but why was he cut from Baltimore early having started 5 games last year?

But he's never healthy. And to that, he's not show anything to suggest he's a better runner than Jennings. I agree, depth isn't great at RB but McKnight just adds to the injury pile IMO.

All 3 of them could be worse than Barron sadly. Dombrowski we already know is garbage. But it's always worth a look. Here is hoping some better pieces fall out in the cut to 53 that can help the roster. Sad the Raiders need that level of luck/help honestly. Maybe they land another Willie Smith Laughing

For me it was because he played well on a good team and can play OT/OG. I looked at the numbers(I know isn't everything) and everything was pretty much the same those 5 games he started as opposed to the rest of the season. Stats were only different in passing and rushing by miniscule amounts. Some better with him some better without him. There was only a .275 difference in sacks. and they won 4 of those 5 games. They lost 6 total in the season. I also saw him play some(not a lot) and he looked good. Now a good team usually overcomes deficencies so this isnt really a big deal but there was no drop off in production while he was in the lineup rushing or passing. And Flacco takes time in pocket and they love to run the ball. So I think he could help our depth and possibly even push for starting position down the line.

I completley agree on Richardson and Dombroski.
