I think some of you are overrating Griffith a bit. Here is why; he was pulled on short yardage situations for Fred McCrary. As an inline blocker he just isn't that good. He makes up for it in his versatility. His assignment was not blowing up Linebackers up front, rather taking on Safeties and Corners in space. He's a nice signing, especially since Knapp will utilize him correctly. If you expect him to plow through the middle, this isn't your guy.

This is good news to Raider fans. A solid RB tandem with solid fullback tandem .. plus a veteran on the O line. Maybe Al has really seen the light :-)

Wow....after the contract the Falcons gave to that dude from the Ravens, iw as expecting Griffith to get a monster deal. 3 years 3.8 million, that's the same contract Mack Strong got last offseason...amazing.

Actually Shiver in a lot of short yardage he was the RB and McCrary was the FB so he was in the game. The problem is Knapp likes to call passes in short yardage for some reason.

im probably the only raider fan that has Joe Thomas at the top of my list of players that i want drafted. would be fine with Russell then Staley i guess but he(Staley) needs time to get bigger.

edit: of course we would need to solve the qb situation first though.

They stole him at that price.


Stay away from Raiders RB's in fantasy. Jordan, Rhodes, Griffith... who gets the 3 rushing TD's for the Raiders this year.

I agree. Would rather the Bucs would have signed him at that deal than Askew.

HEHEHE.....nice move, Griffith is tight. Good for the WCO that i keep hearing we gonna run. His familiarity with Knapp makes it all the more better.

Because maybe he wanted to play for Tom Cable and Knapp, he already knows the system

Great signing. Will be an amazing one if the Raiders can utilize him correctly on 3rd down situations or goalline situations.
