I'm Kate longworth the the latest from the Raiders in Napa for CSN California dot com and I'm joined by our Raiders insider Paul Gutierrez and Paul we've been talking about the wide receivers taking some hits when it comes to injuries had a -- team address that. Well there's a lot of things the Raiders actually you have a lot of receivers in camp already signed a lot of free agency to. Account for for guys like Jacoby -- Louis Murphy Darrius Heyward-Bey started camp injured so -- brought in a lot of guys. -- but now with Chad Schilling's going down. Is actually one in south and it's funny we bring it up because the room where my hometown -- of -- is the guys front and actually kidding -- going to be 34. But TJ Houshmandzadeh. He's he's he's out there is free agent and He has a history with with the coach hue Jackson. -- play like get on that the phone with it keeps it that -- to delegate the answer for raider nation how do you think is something like that happen a player like that can come out here and it's like and what that that's what. Raiders need as they need some it is a solid dependable you know when you throw the ball out there isn't -- so they have to be a number one guy is speedster in in 34 keys is not that guy anymore. But He does have a history with the hue Jackson I mentioned the name BQ after the press conference and kind of being to call them my son's the same way He did sheds Ochocinco. And they were to get there and and since it's for the web and a handful of my notes here but in 2007 He got a 112 passes for. For eleven under and 43 yards twelve touchdowns and obviously that was four years ago but he's a guy that can come in. And contribute. And just be that not as a playmaker at just a solid dependable. Pass catching and that's what they need right now to solidify these things that some of the guys in camp. Derek -- big name. That could potentially make this -- so many guys injured but. But to me I'm on the keep an eye out on TJ Houshmandzadeh for more than a -- -- I'm looking for the insights you but I think it's also hard to note that. The Raiders still do have their core receivers out there even if they're battling injuries and today I even asked you about what He -- is affecting the team's chemistry and you know He did talk about -- they had a lot of practice during the off season. Together so. Really Nolan pushing the panic button here but of course insiders like all I'm going deeper than the average. Trying to trying to and again never goes you know the -- irony -- thing. Ourselves. And it all comes back to that had the motherland this the I'm writing you big cats Paul Gutierrez blog online and it check out his work and we'll see you on sports net central.
