The Oakland Raiders have signed a member of the Green Bay Packers practice squad — cornerback Brandian Ross.
Ross made the Packers final roster, but then was released when Erik Walden returned from his one-game suspension. After that move was made, the Packers cut running back Marc Tyler from the practice squad and added Ross.
Well, the Raiders plucked Ross on Wednesday, signing him to their active roster. General manger Reggie McKenzie, who was formerly with the Packers, is a Ted Thompson protege.
What’s even more interesting is Ross probably now has a chance to see some game action. The Raiders have started former Green Bay second-round bust Pat Lee, who McKenzie signed as a free agent in the offseason. In two games, Lee has five tackles and has broken up one pass.
Here’s another interesting nugget. The Packers now have a spot open on the practice squad. The Minnesota Vikings released receiver Tori Gurley from theirs earlier this week.
Honestly, I’d rather have them bring back Marc Tyler. Good bloodline and showed some upside during preseason.
Too bad it was Minnesota that signed him. Gurley is clearly damaged goods now. He just took a Ned Beatty canoe trip into hell. No way he recovers from that.
Gurly’s a big target and by the way things are going (Finley) we could use all the targets we can get.
I’m surprised the Raiders didn’t sign Gurley.
pass on that gurley man, bring back the well paid Tyler.
Gurley doesn’t really seem like somebody you would be interested in, Pack Lethal. I’m pretty sure Randall Gay is available though. You’d like him a lot better.
I am a little puzzled as to why Gurley hasn’t made an active roster. He is a good young reciever who has a future in this league in my opinion.
If the Vikings practice squad cut him, why the hell would we need him back? Unless he can play tight end….
Richard, your comments are becoming pathetic just like your personalty. Keep the irrelevent posts coming, and keep being being redundant. People love when you make homosexual cracks at Rodgers as well as anyone who tells you to fuck off on this site. Last but not least, your multple names scream troll.
