    Raiders released KR/WR Josh Cribbs.

    Raiders released KR/WR Josh Cribbs.
    Looks like he's done. Knee problems popped up on Cribbs' offseason physicals, and his lack of burst was evident on kickoff returns in preseason games. The Raiders will go with Jacoby Ford as their No. 3 receiver and return specialist.

    Raiders waived WR Sam McGuffie, C Andrew Robiskie, DB Cory Nelms, DT Myles Wade, WR Tray Session, FB Jon Hoese, RB Deonte Williams, and LB Eric Harper.
    These are the Raiders' first cuts. Once a monster recruit at Michigan, McGuffie turned in a disappointing college career after transferring to Rice. He made no waves in training camp, but could perhaps have a future in the CFL.

    Good move, he clearly just doesn't have it anymore and looked out of shape on top of the lack of burst.

    Didn't he fail a team physical a couple weeks before RM signed him?

    You seem overly anxious to criticize RM. The Cribbs signing was of no detriment worthy of such critique. He took an affordable flier on a player with a history of success on ST, largely necessitated by the lack of alternative and security to an oft-injured Jacoby Ford. Given the outcome, his signing obviously didn't prevent opportunity to younger players in camp either.

    If these are the type of players that will be used to draw conclusions on RM, any debate on his performance will suffer.

    Oh, I disagree.

    Signing dudes for veteran minimum and hoping they provide something is exactly what we ought to judge Reggie on - mostly because it's the most cost-effective method imaginable to bring in experienced players who could contribute.

    Some on this board forget Javon Walker; I don't. Whereas Al liked to sign washed-up players to big contracts, Reggie signs washed up players for nothing and cuts them with no cap liabilities.

    No risk, potentially high reward; yeah, let's judge Reggie - he's doing a damned good job.

    True, I'm on board with that. I should have worded that differently. The failure of such signings should not be used to draw negative reaction. They are actually of minimal negative consequence, if any, and can largely only yield positives.

    Still, on an individual basis, lengthy conversation and weight should be reserved for more significant commitments.

    I know what you meant, no worries. I used your post to refute someone else, that's all.

    I agree that criticism or praise should be limited to people who 'matter' to the longer-term plans, but I'm not afraid to give Reggie credit for taking fliers on low-risk players who could pay dividends.

    How is that question critical of RM?

    There was a player we signed that previously failed a physical with Arizona I believe. I was just wondering if that was Cribbs?

    Cribs clearly has nothing left then Ford looked very explosive so no surprise with this move. Now Ford needs to stay healthy.
