Former Boise State tight end Chris O’Neill plans to re-sign with the Oakland Raiders and play in their preseason game Saturday in Oakland against the New Orleans Saints, he said Friday.

O’Neill, who moved to linebacker during the summer and then was cut early in training camp, has been in Boise for several weeks. He had a tryout with the Minnesota Vikings, but that didn’t pan out.

He isn’t sure what the Raiders have in mind. He isn’t even sure which position he will play, but he does expect plenty of work on special teams.

The first round of NFL cuts is Tuesday.

“They told me to pack like I’m staying,” O’Neill said. “It’s got to be a practice-squad deal.”

Maybe his job

Will be to stand between Cable and his assistant coaches?

Once Again

Raider logic strikes again. they'll amount to NOTHING as long as Davis is still in control.

Get it over with.

Al Davis would you please croak, and get over with. As a long time Raider fan, it would make me happy to have a new direction at the top. The Raiders have had a once proud tradition, but I think the owner lost his mind a few years back.
Good luck Chris O'Neill, your working for a nut job.

face the facts boise

an udefeated oregon team goes to the bcs title game.

an undefeated boise team probably goes to the poinsetta bowl, maybe is considered for a bcs bowl.

haha, you suck. doesnt matter what happens on 9/3. you are still boise state.

sad fact of life for a boise fan.

Why does the BCS want UO over USC or FLORIDA STATE?

foreignoregonian, seriously?

if UO is undefeated that means they beat USC, and usc would be 11-1 at best. 12-0 pac 10 team goes to the title game. simply so another bcs bowl can get the trojans.

It's not a world war. Making all the speculation means nothing.

It doesn't even help a world war. Saying we were going to beat the tar out of the NVA because we had all this technology didn't help us a lot either.

This is a war...

...only donkeys don't shoot bazookas and mules don't drive tanks. They both however drop turds all over the place.

Say goodbye to 2006 and 2008 donkeys, it's all over, only instead of the fat lady singing, it's Buck Owens and the Buckaroos and the rest of the Hee Haw gang.

OUT, RACK ME BAAAAABBBBBYYYYY!!!!!!

WILL YOU SHUT UP or I'll rack you to the Village People show.

They are looking for trained monkeys.
