Raiders need to clear a roster spot for Cribbs


At some point soon, receiver/kick returner Josh Cribbs will sign with the Raiders.  For now, he can’t because the Raiders currently have 90 players.

As explained by Paul Gutierrez of, the Raiders mistakenly left long-snapper Nick Guess off the team’s roster entering last weekend’s rookie minicamp, which means that instead of having 89 players they actually have 90.

Which means that they have to make a roster move in order to clear a spot for Cribbs.

It’s not a huge issue, given that every team has a cluster of undrafted free agents and assorted slappies populating the bottom of the roster.  But the Raiders nevertheless must drop a player before they can officially add Cribbs.

Until then, he in theory can sign somewhere else.  But that’s not likely.

    While they’re at it they might as well free up one more roster spot and bring back Charles Woodson.

    Actually the Raiders also signed a QB today thus needing two spots now…a third if Woods on decides to return to Oakland.

    Once again the Raiders prove they belong at the bottom of the list. I really would love to say that you’re more intelligent than Saint’s fans… but nope. You’re not.

    Why do you go with slappies? Everyone knows you mean to say “slapdicks”. Just say it. You will sleep better, and nobody will file a complaint. Well, spellingcops might lodge a protest. But I’ve seen her, and let me say, she is butt-ugly. If she complains, it’s only because she needs attention, not because she’s offended by the wording.

    From mishandling roll call, to mishandling draft trades, the Raiders are right on schedule… To be Peyton’s speedbump

    Don’t forget the assorted slappies at the top of the roster too. In fact, just say a whole roster of assorted slappies and be more accurate.

    Let me ad one more hit to this useless post.

    Wonder how that long-snapper Nick Guess feels this morning. Probably lower than a slappie.

    Man you’re an idiot commitment2ex…a true Donkey lover. Can’t wait to see MegaHead go down hard…like you on spellingcops.
