One week ago the Denver Broncos made former top draft pick Jarvis Moss the latest victim of De-Shanahanization. One week later and he’ll be suiting up for the rival Oakland Raiders. Word is spreading that the Raiders have brought in Moss to replace Trevor Scott who is expected to be placed on IR.
Scott suffered a knee injury on punt coverage during the lopsided loss in Pittsburgh.
Unable to live up to his draft status, the Broncos cut ties with the former Florida Gator after seeing him amass just 3.5 sacks in just over three years. Once Denver made the conversion to the 3-4 it all but assured Moss would be out of the rotation as he was moved to outside linebacker. Unhappy with making the transition, Moss was reported to be contemplating retirement.
The Raiders continue to rebuild the defense by acquiring reclamation projects. Both Quentin Groves and Kamerion Wimbley were castoffs that have found some success in Oakland and hopefully Moss will do the same. He’ll be expected to work his way into the rotation, spelling Matt Shaughnessy and rookie Lamarr Houston at the end positions.
