A week after being released by the Denver Broncos and clearing waivers, Outside Linebacker Jarvis Moss has found a new home — in Oakland, California.
Moss broke the news himself, via twitter:
@JmossVsJarvis: So it’s official! I’m an Oakland Raider! God is good thank him!
Typical of the Raiders to pick up cast-offs from division rivals, they now have a player who feels he was “unappreciated” by the Broncos and will get a chance to prove to them that they were wrong about him — twice a year.
Adding kindling to the fire, another former Bronco defensive lineman, Darrell Reid tweeted this:
The nickname “Money” is extremely appropriate for Moss.
Failing to live up to fans and coaches high expectations for him, Moss didn’t record a sack in the past two seasons, and had recorded 5 tackles this season before being released. The news of his signing is yet to be officially announced, and the terms of his new contract are not yet known.
This adds a little more to a rivalry that’s been around since the days of the AFL. The Broncos will play the Raiders, and Moss, at home in week 15 on December 19th.
