Report: Raiders agree to terms with Roscoe Parrish

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Roscoe Parrish (13) runs a route during training camp at Charger Park.

Dennis Allen and Reggie McKenzie have been saying that they were going to be scanning the waiver wire to add a return man. Here is what Allen said on August 20:

"[Returner] is obviously a position we've got some concern over and we're gonna be evaluating the guys that we have here but we're also gonna be looking at the rosters of the other 31 teams and see if there's anyone that comes available that can help us in that regard."

Well, that guy just presented himself when the rival Chargers released wide receiver and return specialist, Roscoe Parrish this morning. Now a report from Pro Football Talk says that the Raiders have agreed to terms with the seven-year pro.

Parrish spent all seven seasons of his NFL career with the Buffalo Bills who chose him in the second round of the draft in 2005. He was primarily a punt returner for much of that time although he also had some catches as a receiver.

He had a career high in receiving in 2010 with 33 catches for 400 yards. He has also averaged in double figures in punt return yardage each of his five full seasons.

Last season, he was lost for the season in week two after an ankle injury.

His arrival would be valuable for some inside info on the Chargers of whom the Raiders play in week one. It would also likely mean Eddie McGee will not make the roster.
