Yesterday a couple former Raiders made back page headlines…well…more like small print, corner of the page, buried beneath the male enhancement ads type headlines.
Derek Hagan was able to catch on in Buffalo just a few weeks after being released by the Raiders. Hagan joins Buffalo’s active roster due to a couple of injuries and could have a chance to contribute. Hagan impressed in camp and was able to secure a job in Oakland only to be given his walking papers to make room for T.J. Houshmandzadeh.
Good news for Hagan. The same can’t be said for former Raider DB Walter McFadden.
McFadden continues to find life in the NFL a difficult challenge. Yesterday the Cincinnati Bengals released McFadden from their practice squad. This is the second stop McFadden has made since being cut by the Raiders this year. No real surprise there as the slim corner continues to struggles to cover NFL receivers.
