They might as well just cut his ass. When has a player ever moved from RB to Corner after making it to the NFL? This is bush league and makes our team look stupid. How in the hell is a RB going to beat out guys who have played Corner their whole lives?
If Taiwan is able to make our team as a CB this season then what in the hell was he doing playing RB last season? I thought Reggie was a guru talent evaluator.
This is embarrassing.
I have a great idea. Why not give him a chance to play RB and see what happens.
He`s an asset on special teams as a gunner. They are just trying to find other areas he can contribute. He has failed at RB due to ball insecurity and lack of pass blocking. His strength in college was as a CB. Raiders have major needs at CB. They are simply giving him a shot to see what he can do. That`s it....youre acting like he is inked in as a starter already. Good grief, he will probably be released this year but they are just trying to find a spot he can contribute other than as gunner on ST`s. Why are you so embarrassed today with this front office and staff? Fk dude, I`ve been embarrassed for 10 years + but now you are embarrassed? Strange
How do you know he can't pass block and has ball security issues? He has 22 attempts for 94 yards and 1 fumble that was recovered by Oakland in his career. When Mcfadden went down last season he said no coaches talked to him about the decision to sign Stewart instead of giving him his shot.
I thought he showed signs of being special in the few chances he got. All of the sudden after making the cut 2 seasons in a row as a RB he's being moved to CB.
Your just wrong about his college career. His strength was as a RB. He only played 4 games as a CB in college.
