Lamont Jordan told not to report

Postby ninremix » Thu Jul 24, 2008 3:18 am

The agent for Raiders running back LaMont Jordan confirmed his client was told not to report to the team's opening day of training camp in Napa, even though the seven-year veteran has two years remaining on his contact.

According to the current collective bargaining agreement, an NFL player under contract must be allowed to report and participate in all offseason and training camp meetings and workouts.

Alvin Keels, who represents the running back, said he told the Raiders on Wednesday they have just more than 24 hours to release his client, trade him or permit him to report as scheduled.

Will any team be interested in him?

With his injury history I am sure teams will be reluctant to throw much money at him, but when healthy Lamont is more than an adequate RB. Wouldn't be opposed to the Lions signing him.Should he pass a physical of course.

Gotta love the way the Raiders do business. Trying to force a coach to resign to save some money, then telling a player under contract he cannot report to camp. They have some talent but I cannot see things getting good there until Al Davis rides off into the sunset.

Exactly.

Al Davis has always been overly concerned with other teams "stealing" their playbook by signing dumped players. Maybe Al needs to wake up and learn that the way to beat his team is to merely show up and go through the motions. They aren't good enough for anyone to care about their dumped players...

I heard on sirius today that the Saints might be interested, depending on how deuce looks. Personally, I'd like to see him go to Arizona to give edge some help.

Jordan signed with NE. Per Rotoworld:



NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports the Patriots have signed RB LaMont Jordan, a day after he was released by the Raiders.

Jordan also considered New Orleans, but the Pats swooped in on another cheap, serviceable vet. This may say as much about the club's confidence in Sammy Morris' health as it does about Laurence Maroney. However, it's been clear for some time that Maroney's usage patterns were simply not reliable enough for fantasy leaguers, and Jordan's signing adds further concern. Maroney will remain the starter, but Jordan could play a significant enough role to hamper Maroney's consistency and overall production.
