Seattle QB Tavaris Jackson struggles again
Sunday, August 21, 2011, 8:21am
Jackson was running for safety most of the night and struggled as the Vikings beat the Seahawks 20-7. He completed 11 of 21 passes for 75 yards and one interception that deflected off receiver Golden Tate’s hands and was returned for a touchdown by cornerback Marcus Sherels.
McNabb led a 13-play drive that started at the 1 and ended in Longwell’s 36-yard field goal. Longwell added a 34-yarder.
McNabb was 6 of 8 for 81 yards. Tristan Davis added a 35-yard TD run with 2:09 left for Minnesota’s first offensive touchdown of the preseason.

Steve Corkran thinks the Raiders are going to be just fine with Kevin Boss at tight end now that Zach Miller is with the Seattle Seahawks. That much became evident in Boss’ first practice since signing with the Raiders on Friday.
Boss is tall, fast, and he has sure hands. There’s no reason to think that he won’t at least double the 30 receptions he averaged in his four seasons with the New York Giants.

Raiders beat writer Steve Corkran predicted the starting Raider:
On offense, Jason Campbell is back as the starting quarterback. Darren McFadden is the running back, Marcel Reece the fullback, Kevin Boss the tight end, Chaz Schilens and Louis Murphy the leading candidates at the wide receiver spots.
Boss replaces Zach Miller at TE, who left for Seattle. The only surprise is Chaz Schilens at WR. Jacoby Ford has a broken orbital bone and Darrius Heyward-Bey can't seem to live up to his first-round potential. Ford should eventually take over the starting duties when he's back, but both he and Murphy are low end WRs. Ford has an ADP of the 10th round.

Oakland Raiders coaches are excited to see wide receiver Chaz Schilens healthy in camp. He made only five receptions last season because of a knee injury that knocked him out of 11 games, but the team still believes he can be a solid contributor in the passing game.
If you play Madden and were going to build an "all-injured" team Schilens would have to be on it. There's no reason to waste a roster spot on him.
RB Michael Bush Reports to Raiders Camp
Saturday, August 6, 2011, 2:19pm
Bush’s arrival means he either signed a one-year, $2.6 million tender as a restricted free agent or he received a deal with more years and more money.
The Raiders’ second-leading rusher with 655 yards, Bush has made no comments regarding his absence from camp, although it was assumed it was contract related.
Bush was the only restricted free agent who hadn’t reported to his team.
Given Darren McFadden's injury history and Oakland's shaky passing game, especially minus Zach Miller, Bush is someone who could easily outperform his draft position. Continue to consider him as one of the best backup running backs in fantasy football and a mandatory handcuff pick if you take McFadden.

Boss reached an agreement on a four-year, $16 million deal, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The Raiders were looking for a tight end after losing Zach Miller to the Seahawks. The Raiders expect to complete the signing later Friday.
