    I actually think he will do Ok with them. As long as he is not the main focus, and can be the # 2 or # 3 receiver

    Man that guy has every physical tool but he just CANNOT track the ball. It's like watching an outfielder who's fast and agile and he just can't get where he needs to be when he needs to be there, and then he flubs it.

    I'm surprised he didn't drop the pen when signing the contract.

    I’ll give him a pass for the dropped pass vs. the Patriots.

    Makes me think of the movie North Dallas Forty when coach chastises Nick Nolte: “concentration, Elliott.”

    The Raiders should develop a new "non-detectable" form of stick-um.:ssst:
    Long history with players such as Fred Biletnikoff and Lester Hayes. Funny hearing some of the stories (check out you tube) from their teammates.

    He now gets to lose to the Chiefs twice a year and can watch a real quarterback with real receivers play.

    If this guy makes the team, you know the Raiders won't be having a good season.

    The flaw with Stick Um was that you had to keep applying it
    or it would become slippery as it dried.
    NFL had to outlaw it......it got all over the footballs..
    ...they had to wipe the crap off the balls, constantly.
    Probably......began the " Towel Ball Boy " job ?
