Oakland Raiders Name Practice Squad for 2011-12 Season

By Shawn Etemadi

Shortly after cutting down their roster to 53 players, the Oakland Raiders and head coach Hue Jackson have named their eight-man practice squad. By the looks of it, Jackson has selected eight talented players to anchor his practice squad. Here is the list:

Fullback Manase Tonga

Wide Receiver Eddie McGee

Offensive Lineman Alex Parsons

Tight End Kevin Brock

Defensive End Mason Brodine

Defensive Tackle Jamie Cumbie

Linebacker Jeremy Leman

Cornerback Sterling Moore

With the these selections, the Raiders are surely turning to youth to anchor their practice squad in 2011-12. Some people may overlook the importance of practice squads, but it all starts with practice. Yes, I’m talkin’ about practice.
