Oakland Raiders: 53-Man Roster Cuts Begin, Matt McGloin Cracks Roster, David Bass Cut


Believe it or not, quarterback Matt McGloin has made the Oakland Raiders roster.  In my roster prediction post, I felt that McGloin had shown enough to the Raiders coaching staff to make this team.  Apparently I got one right.  Not tooting my horn, but he’s a solid player who could evolve into a very good quarterback.  I’m very happy with this choice by the Raiders.  Now, maybe they’ll let Wilson go late in the day in order to keep him for the practice squad?

No longer a rumor Raider Nation, defensive end David Bass has been cut along with linebacker Chase Thomas.  Although David Bass had a full training camp and showed some very good pass rushing skills, it was not enough to keep the Oakland Raiders 7th round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.  One thing to keep in mind, if Bass is still available after today, he could immediately be moved to the practice squad for grooming by the Raiders.

Chase Thomas was released late in August by the New Orleans Saints, and the Raiders brought him in for a late camp tryout.  Unfortunately, Thomas was behind the proverbial 8-ball from the moment he walked into Raiders training camp.  He’s a rookie, and there is some potential in this player.  The possibility exists that he could be moved to the practice squad, but nothing is definite.

Keep checking in with us, it’s really beginning to roll now.
