Default Lamont Jordan released

To ease their RB glut, Raiders release veteran Jordan
By Bill Williamson
ESPN.com
The long LaMont Jordan saga in Oakland is over.

The team released the running back Friday after an exhaustive attempt to trade him since early June. Friday's resolution concludes a turbulent end to Jordan's three years in Oakland.

Oakland told Jordan, 29, to stay away from training camp and a June minicamp because it was trying to trade him. He had a pre-trade visit to Detroit earlier this month, but talks stalled. Jordan now joins a crowded group of veteran running backs looking for work, including Shaun Alexander, Ron Dayne and Cedric Benson.
Jordan's stint in Oakland came to an end because the Raiders have a crowded running back crew, especially now after drafting Darren McFadden with the No. 4 overall pick and because of Jordan's high price tag for 2008. Jordan had 1,025 yards rushing in 2005, his first season in Oakland after signing as a free agent from the New York Jets. However, he combined for just 984 yards in the last two years of Oakland.
The used car lot is starting to fill up with old models.

I'd imagine some team will give him a look before it's over. Although it may take a training camp injury for it to happen.

With Kenny Irons gone maybe you guys should give him a look.

Eh, I would doubt they will. The team pretty much already knew Irons wouldn't be available this season and have passed over guys like Kevin Jones and Shaun Alexander. Even with no Irons, the Bengals still have 5 pretty decent running backs battling it out for 3 spots.

I'd imagine it will take an injury to some team's #1 or #2 back for Lamont's name to be called.

Actually, the Browns should bring him in for a look. He's insurance if Lewis goes down...they really aren't very deep at RB either. Jerome Harrison and Jason Wright? I don't think so...

Poor Jordan.
he was the original michael turner. i wonder if turner will meet the same fate in atlanta as jordan did in oakland?

going to the doormat of the league isnt the best way to show youre ready to be the premier back after 4-5 years in the league. (even chester taylor has been shoves aside in minn.)

jordan in boston is a good fit though. typical patriots move where not much will be asked of him, and if it is, he should be capable of delivering.

i guess after patriots gave up so much for moss last year davis wasnt even able to squeeze out a 6th round pick from them.

Wow, I am surprised he went to New England.

I thought Jordan was going to be a stud RB when he hit FA, then he signed with the Raiders and it all went downhill from there.
