    Alex Barron signs with Raiders

    Usually wouldn't take the time to post something like this, but I found this blurb to be quite funny.

    Per rotoworld:

    Raiders agreed to terms with OT Alex Barron.

    No word on if a penalty was committed in the process. Barron couldn't make it past final cuts with the Seahawks last season, and hasn't appeared in a game since 2010. The error-prone former Cowboy and Ram will turn 31 in September. Oakland is a good spot for Barron to attempt to rejuvenate his career because there is so little talent on Reggie McKenzie's roster.

    Wonder if he was flagged for holding a pen.

    Actually, the story was originally reported a couple of days ago, but i had to be reposted since it was determined that the initial information on Barron was a false start.

    This is kind of an odd fit. I know Alex draws a lot of penalties, but don't the Raiders prefer that their players lead the league in penalties like roughing and unsportsmanlike conduct? He must have a run a really fast 40 to win them over.

    I knew Barron's false start problems were bad, but I didn't think they were so bad that he'd have to move to an earlier time zone.

    Well, Barron has certainly landed in his rock bottom, last chance spot in Choaktown. I'll actually be surprised if he makes it through camp. All the talent and potential in the world, wasted because of a lousy attitude and non-existent work ethic.

    And I thought AL Davis was dead? Musta been something in his Will that said the Raiders must continue doubling down on stupid. All I know is someone in Denver likes this move

    I'm sure he did have a good 40 time he usually starts a second before everyone else.
