We already know the Raiders are going to have to make some roster moves in order to get into a position to pursue free agents. Until then Al Davis is content to keep inking men that were already wearing Silver and Black on Sundays.
As the NFL’s free agency frenzy got underway today the Raiders made a minimal move by bringing Jarvis Moss back into the fold. Football News Now is among the outlets reporting the Raiders’ giving Moss a 1-year deal worth $1.25-million.
A former first round pick of the Denver Donkeys, Moss made his way to the East Bay last season where he played in 5 games for the Raiders. His size, athleticism and versatility make Moss a nice fit for Oakland’s defensive line.
While he will never live up to his draft stock, Moss is a player that can be valuable in certain situations. Denver made Moss expendable after making the trendy switch to the 3-4. While he’s not a great player standing up, Moss does have value as an end and helps add more versatility to one of the best defensive lines in the league.
