Some very recent ex-Raiders made some interesting roster moves, these past couple of days, including the Atlanta Falcons (lets be honest a better roster than ours overall) signing Omar Gaither to their 53 and Chase Thomas to their prqactise squad. The Arizona Falcons, meanwhile, terminated Sam McGuffie’s practise squad contract, as they replace him with Dan Buckner.
We all acknowledged that Omar Gaither looked good this off-season, indeed almost ever Raider fan I’ve spoken to recently wanted him on our 53 – myself included, so this signing is a shame, particularly as apparently we had him on “speed dial”.
Should we consider bringing Sam McGuffie onto our own practise squad? Purely on his college career, yes, but we saw him in camp and apparentyl he didn’t impress all that much, so we’ll have to trust Reggie on this one.
Anyway, good luck to them all – once a Raider, always a Raider.
