NFL Free Agency: Oakland Raiders interested in Andre Brown


Earlier today the Oakland Raiders agreed to a one-year deal to bring back running back Darren McFadden. If you traffic in snark and sarcasm, you might note that they are unlikely to actually get a year’s worth of football out of McFadden due to his history of injury troubles.

It would appear that the Raiders are also aware of that fact, as they are interested in adding running back Andre Brown as well.

Brown has struggled to stay on the field due to some lingering leg injuries, but when he has played he has been fairly productive. He is certainly capable of making contributions in a timeshare.

At this point you might point out the fact the Raiders already have one injury-prone back, so why would they want two? But hey, we already covered that snark/sarcasm thing here.

    Mckenzie really does have a fetish for players with injury history

  • Rodney Wagoner

    He is garbage just like mcfading

    I cannot believe what is happening… we sign a banged a guard to play tackle….and resign an unprorductive fragile running back and let go the most reliable player we had last year.. Rashad Jennings. Now we want another back….that gets injured. I can understand making sacrafices when we dont have any money….but now that we do >.. yikes

  • gdubb

    Omfg I can’t believe this is going on with my raiders.. I hope to God we sign some good players

  • angel

    i wouldn’t mind this signing. We need another tackle though. Anthony Collins is the only good LT left. We need to overpay him to bring him in but we need to if we do that we’ll be ok

  • Carl Elftman

    I am glad we had all that money to spend, because they will need for their health care plan.

  • Mackers

    Reece did want us to take risks…..
