  Raiders | Announce roster moves    Sat Sep 5, 07:56 PM

Jerry McDonald, of ANG Newspapers, reports the Oakland Raiders have released S Jerome Boyd, WR Jonathan Holland, LB David Nixon, LB Slade Norris, LB Chris O'Neill, FB Marcel Reece, RB Gary Russell, LB Morlon Greenwood, CB Justin Miller, DT Ryan Boschetti, DT Terdell Sands, CB Darrick Brown, OT Seth Wand, OG Mark Wilson, OT James Marten, TE Darrell Strong and DE Greyson Gunheim. The Raiders have also waived injured FS Rashad Baker (stinger), CB Mike Hawkins (undisclosed) and C John Wade (stinger).

Footballguys view: Russell gets cut, and Louis Rankin gets to keep his job as the 4th string RB. These two RBs couldn't be more different. Rankin is a compact running back with big play ability. Russell is a plodding power back that has a nose for the endzone. Marcel Reece is a versatile player that could play fullback, tight end, or H-back, and he may find his way onto the Raiders practice squad.

  Eagles | Three expected to compete for free safety spot    Mon Jul 20, 03:13 PM

Jeff McLane, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports Philadelphia Eagles SS Quintin Demps, FS Sean Jones and FS Rashad Baker will compete for the starting free safety job during training camp.

Footballguys view: This is a battle IDP leaguers should watch closely. Sean Jones was an IDP stud during his time at Cleveland. McLane said "Quintin Mikell is ensconced at strong safety", so it doesn't sound like we're in danger of seeing a three safety rotation that could sap the whole trio of their fantasy value.
