Default POPPIE TO THE RAIDERS

Running back Dominic "Poppie" Rhodes, who not long ago was reportedly urinating all over himself after a DUI arrest, will now have a chance to soil some silver and black.
Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that Rhodes has agreed to terms with the Raiders. The deal is worth $7.5 million over two years. Mike Garafalo of the Newark Star-Ledger suggests that the base value could be lower than that; he says that the contract is worth "up to" $7.5 million.
In an unrelated story, all couches at team headquarters will be covered in plastic.
Rhodes gave an MVP-caliber performance in the Colts' Super Bowl victory over the Bears. His numbers for the game were better than those of Super Bowl XXV MVP Ottis Anderson -- and Super Bowl XLI MVP Peyton Manning's were worse than those of Giants quarterback Jeff Hostetler in the same game.
DUI charges against Rhodes are unresolved. For Turd Watch scoring purposes, the Raiders will acquire any points from a conviction, guilty plea, or plea of no contest. The Colts, however, keep the existing points, since he was their property when he went pee-pee in a police car.

You'll never hear from that guy again...he'll get hurt and have a Raider attitude and be released and no one will want him.

Sad.

Why sign another running back when you don't have a quarterback or offensive line?

Default Re: POPPIE TO THE RAIDERS

after thinking about it, this move shouldve come to no suprise. if youre a former heisman winner:

tim brown
raghib ismail
charles woodson
etc...

or a former role player who had a huge impact in a sb or better yet, is or shoulda been the MVP:

larry brown
jeff hostettler
desmond howard
dominic rhodes

you are gonna find your way on the raiders roster because al davis loves these trophy pieces.

(maybe im wrong about rocket and desmond but i dont think so. point still stands. actually i think ismails 1st team was w/ the raiders after the cfl???)

This will probably work out just about as well as the last second-tier back who platooned his whole career who signed with the Raiders for WAY too much money did.

That would be LaMont "Go ahead and waste that fantasy pick on me" Jordan.

Rhodes won a SB...maybe he'll change his ways and show up and play... he's at a good age for RB....
