Not everything Reggie McKenzie is doing these days is about undoing what Al Davis did. The re-signing of Derek Hagan proves an example of McKenzie re-doing something that Davis previously un-did. Not sure if that makes sense or if its proper grammar for that matter but I think you get the point.
If you’re reading this blog then you already knew Hagan as a former Raider that played his way onto the roster as a camp invite last season. He was eventually released, went to Buffalo and one year later has again found his way back to the Bay.
In need of some help at receiver with injuries piling up, the Raiders have signed the former Sun Devil for his second run with the organization. This comes one day after Oakland gave veteran Jabar Gaffney a lookover. However Gaffney’s salary would have been fully guaranteed had he been on the roster for week one making Hagan a bargain McKenzie could very much afford.
Hagan impressed last preseason for the Silver and Black including a 100-yard performance against the Saints. He’s a valuable asset as a chain mover on third down and has the ability to make plays in the open field as well.
In order to make room for Hagan the Raiders parted ways with the recently signed Coye Francies.
