Yesterday afternoon, it was reported on the Silver and Black Blog that the Raiders had signed quarterback Charlie Frye. Nishal26 first broke it on this site on this FanPost, which just so happened to be KA1Z3R's first installment of The Weekly Raider. This gives the Raiders six quarterbacks on the roster, so you have to think the half of them won't make it. This basically comes down to Andrew Walter, Danny Southwick, Charlie Frye and Bruce Gradkowski. Those four guys will battle it out for the final quarterback slot on the team.
Frye is a former Brown and Seahawk and is entering his sixth year in the league out of Akron.
Here are some quick-hitting links:
- Two sources say Brad Childress has given Brett Favre a deadline of this week to decide whether or not he is interested in joining the Vikings.
- The Denver Broncos are the latest team interested in possibly selling ad space on their practice. The Broncos are warming to the idea.
- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has denied reported interest in bringing back cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones.
Here is your daily politics fix:
- As the nation's unemployment rate inches toward double-digit territory, the White House insists that job creation is on the way.
- At Monday night's fundraising dinner for the Senate and House Republican campaign committees, Newt Gingrich was the keynote speaker; however, it was Sarah Palin who stole the show.
- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday she has ordered a review of security and vetting procedures that let a State Department employee suspected of spying for Cuba slip through the cracks.
