Kehl is a great pick up!! I thought he should have made the 53 out of camp. Hail.
I think its hilarious how many were vehemently against Babble.
I for one am glad to hear we put in a claim, at least trying to address an obvious issue. We sorely need pressure generated up front, someone to help free up Kerrigan. Bad apple was the prime concern it seems. I kept calm knowing Shanahan can handle a bad locker room apple for 5 games, without even trying.
Instead, Haslet will just keep bringing 5 very often, like he has been doing.
One sack and he'd have been an instant hero.
news is we just signed bryan kehl!!!

Again, Rolando McClain remains on the Raiders 53-man roster. He can't be waived until Thursday, at the earliest.
Jerry McDonald @Jerrymcd
Raiders at present not confirming anything with McClain, saying he's still ``officially'' on the roster.
Ray Ratto @RattoCSN
And now the Raiders have done it: Rolando McClain announced he's been cut, Raiders don;'t confirm, so they have two starting MLBs
Apparently we liked Babin enough to put in a claim. While I don't like his attitude, I suppose they figured they could suffer him for 5 games if it helped us. Still we didn't get him, so it doesn't matter either way.
Kehl is a good pickup, but if McClain is loosed by the Raiders we need to be all over that. Guy is incredibly talented, and only 23. Maybe not a perfect fit, and maybe has some trouble with the law, but with Fletcher aging and Robinson injured, a guy like McClain, who in 2.5 years has almost 250 tackles, you've got to make a run at him. Babin, because of his age I could see no, but McClain is too young to ignore. My biggest concern on him would be his contract, he's had a 5 year 40M contract, so he's probably owed some 3M left for this year, and possibly 8M next year.
jt partlow saying mcclain has been released from raiders
McClain wants out of Oakland

McClain has not officially been released. He can't be until Thursday from what I understand. Seems like it'll happen but nothing official yet.
Babin picked up by Jacksonville
I would like for the Skins to kick around McClain if he is released
Have Fletch mentor him.
apparently we did..
