The Oakland Raiders acquisition of CB Carlos Rogers is another great signing by the Reggie McKenzie administration. Yes Rogers is old – 32 years to be precise – but he is in good condition, will likely not be an ever-down starter anyway, and with the much improved pass rush will have a much easier job to do than last year’s incumbents.
Just like Charles Woodson, Carlos Rogers provides further tutelage for our young DB class – I can only see the likes of Taiwan Jones, Chimdi Chekwa, Johnny Adams, Chance Casey, Tony Dye, DJ Hayden, Shelton Johnson and Neiko Thorpe – improving under the guidance of Tarell Brown, Charles Woodson and Carlos Rogers.
… on this kid Neiko Thorpe, at 6’2″, clocking 4.34 in the 40 and delivering proper hits I see a real prospect http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnX6Z73G3tQ
as I do with Chance Casey, really looking forward to seeing that kid improve.
