Fan Corner: Twitter Reaction to the Willis McGahee Rumor Mill

Today’s news on Willis McGahee’s release from the Denver Broncos and subsequent shortlist sent twitter and the Raiders community buzzing in pondering whether Reggie McKenzie should take a chance on the talented and sometimes productive McGahee and bank on him being able to be durable enough to be the number two option despite already signing Rashad Jennings this spring.

With McGahee listing Oakland in his top five teams, I asked the question on whether McGahee’s talents were worth the risk for the Raiders.


Just Blog Baby’s twitter account was flooded after the question was asked this afternoon and the responses were conflicted as expected from one of the league’s most hot and cold players. Yet the consensus was that McGahee would be worth the risk with the potential reward of a deadly one-two punch with Darren McFadden being great enough to overlook McGahee’s durability issues.

Word on McGahee’s situation is sure to continue to come out in the coming days as the running back went quickly to the media to release his Top Five destinations the day of being cut loose by the Broncos at the start of minicamp. With McGahee actively searching for a new gig as a long list of veterans sit at home, expect the media to be well informed of McGahee’s desires to quickly find a new team.
