TAIWAN JONES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Getting to know Raiders rookie T.J. Carrie

The rookies have all converged upon Ohio for this year’s rookie symposium. I think it’s always an interesting time. On the one hand, it gives the rookies a chance to step off the field and allow their personalities to shine and give Raider Nation a chance to get to know them on a more personal level. I also really love seeing their reactions to the Hall of Fame as they stroll...

Oakland Raiders: why to watch TJ Carrie

With the 219th pick in the draft, the Oakland Raiders selected cornerback Travis “T.J.” Carrie out of the University of Ohio. While 7th round picks are long shots to make the roster, Carrie has tremendous upside and could be in line to produce as a rookie. TJ Carrie Carrie has a long college injury resume, missing time in 2009 with a torn labrum and missing all of 2012 with a...

Oakland Raiders could start Taiwan Jones at RB this week

Running back Darren McFadden, though, was not on the practice field, fueling speculation that he aggravated his troubled right hamstring. Neither was running back Jeremy Stewart, who suffered knee and ankle injuries on Thanksgiving at the Dallas Cowboys.

Raiders CB jumps over car for $200

Some of the Raiders went out to celebrate Darren McFadden’s 26th birthday Tuesday night. (It looked like a swell night, BTW.) At some point of the evening cornerback Taiwan Jones was dared to jump over a car. Jones is the freak of an athlete who wasn’t even playing on defense last year and who, more notably, jumped out of a swimming pool backward once upon a time. If he completed...

Camp Battle No More: Taiwan Jones Surges Ahead

I’m not sure what Taiwan Jones‘ reaction was when he found out the Oakland Raiders had traded T Bruce Campbell to the Panthers in exchange for RB Mike Goodson.  It’s probably safe to assume that it didn’t exactly boost his confidence. That’s understandable.  It was no secret that the Raiders were in the market for [...]
