    DeMarcus Van Dyke released

    Twitter / NFL_RealUpdates: To make room for former #Eagles ...

    To make room for former #Eagles CB Joselio Hanson the #Raiders are waiving 2011 3rd round pick CB DeMarcus Van Dyke.

    Raiders pulling plug on 2011 third-round pick | ProFootballTalk
    As Raiders G.M. Reggie McKenzie continues to settle in as the new captain of the team’s front office, he’s not afraid to overturn the decisions of his predecessor, the late Al Davis.

    Per a league source, McKenzie and company will be waiving today cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke.

    Van Dyke, a third-round pick in 2011 who appeared in 14 games with four starts last year, fit the former vision for the franchise. He was fast. The fastest man at last year’s Scouting Combine, running the 40-yard dash in 4.28 seconds.

    The move comes two days after the Raiders and McKenzie parted ways with cornerback Chimdi Chekwa, a fourth-round pick in 2011 who ran the 40 in 4.33 seconds at the Combine. Both Chekwa and Van Dyke are listed as second-team corners in the Raiders’ most recent depth chart, with Shawntae Spencer and Ron Bartell the starters.

    The broader message is that McKenzie must see something in the player the team took in the third round of the 2011 supplemental draft, quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Otherwise, he’d be gone, too.

    Then again, who knows what the next move from McKenzie will be?

    So we'll have Phillip Adams, Coye Francies, and Joselio Hanson. I think Huff will be in there some with Giordano on the field a lot again.

    Can't play, can't stay.

    I think this will have positive long term results. This year, I think our defense is in a lot of trouble.

    I see it as getting rid of all the "Not good at football" guys.
    We shouldn't be surprised that a guy who couldn't start for a mediocre team in college hasn't been able to cut it in the NFL.

    If he's on waivers...I wonder if anybody else will pick him up. There was talk that the Eagles wanted to draft him, maybe they bring him into Philly now. Who knows...if he doesn't get picked up he'll be a good practice squad, ready to roll backup, kind of guy. He does have a lot of experience for us, just isn't getting it quite yet, maybe he never will, but obviously Reggie doesn't want him starting for Oakland at the moment.

    Sounds like a good move to me, DVD has looked terrible in pre season, and is too skinny to hit anybody.
    Hanson is at least a legitimate NFL player and has experience in this league.

    The coaching staff prob isn't too happy about having 3 new DBs going into next week's game. McZ is thinking longer term than just 1 game

    That game against the Lions ensured his survival. No way you give up on that type of ability. Maybe he wont be a traditional quarterback, but he deserves to be on the field in some capacity. He stronger than I thought too, he's hard to being down.

    i dont care if he was the so called best player in camp he still stunk during the real games could not make play on balls.

    We have little to no depth at CB , but what the hell allens system we are going to play a lot of zone so CB will not be as important as years past.
