  • Oakland Raiders sign S Donovin Darius

    The Oakland Raiders have signed veteran safety Donovin Darius. Darius has started in all 115 league games in which he has played.

    “We are extremely excited about adding Donovin to the Raiders,” said Raiders Head Coach Lane Kiffin. “He will bring us immediate competition in our secondary. Donovin exemplifies hard work and dedication to the game. Working with Donovin at Jacksonville, I was able to see what a phenomenal competitor he is. He will fit great into our team philosophy.”

      It would definitely be a good signing if we can still be able to sign our rookies as well as restructure the contracts of Derrick Burgess & Nnamdi Asomugha.

                Stu will be on ST and used as a back up, his tackling skills are crap, that's too bad because he has a nose for the ball.

                The Raider D looks good for this season.......

                  I like the signing. For Michael Huff, of the three positions in the backfield, SS was the worst fit. I think he will excell at FS and with Darius.

                  This is a good pickup if he stays healthy. I was never high on Stu. I thought he was solid, opportunistic at times, but not good enough to be elite. While I doubt Darius will have the numbers that Ronnie Lott & Rod Woodson did, since that's not his game, I think he gives the backfield a menacing presence. And his tackling skills will be sorely needed when Tomlinson, Johnson and Henry break free of the shaky run-stopping line.

                          Wait, here's ANOTHER gem on Donovin Darius

                          Recovering from injury, Darius should be ready for training camp

                          One advantage the Raiders had over other suitors was that Kiffin and Darius have ties from the past. Kiffin served as a quality control coach for the Jaguars in 2000, working primarily with the secondary, in Darius' third season in the NFL. Darius studied the Oakland defense after his release by the Jaguars and was impressed by the aggressive scheme that it featured by coordinator Rob Ryan.
