Oakland Raiders 2011 Free Agent Signings: Raiders Agree to Terms with Defensive End

Things are moving now; we have the first news of a 2011 Oakland Raiders free agent signing. It is Jarvis Moss. Boom! How is that for making some waves? And people thought the Raiders wouldn't be big players in the market. Keep in mind that free agents can't sign their contracts until Friday, but Len Pasquarelli of The Sports Xchange reports that the Raiders and Moss agreed to a one year deal worth $1.25 million.

The move is fine with me—let's just hope it is the first of many. The Raiders signed Moss after Trevor Scott went down with an ACL tear. Moss had just been cut by the Broncos. He is a former first-round pick, but he was toiling in the Broncos 3-4 system.

Moss showed a little potential in limited time in five games with the Raiders. He even recorded a sack at Kansas City in Week 17. I think he is an excellent end of the rotation defensive end. He plays with great passion and energy, and he was often the first guy off the bench to root on his teammates. It is always nice to have guys with a positive attitude, that aren't busy complaining, at the end of the bench.
