Raiders Sign 7th Round CB out of MSU

July 26, 2010

This past Wednesday the Oakland Raiders signed 7th round pick Jeremy Ware to a 4 year deal totaling 1.85 million, including a $62,450 signing bonus. Ware wasn't expected to be a sure-fire selection in this year's draft, and was the only player chosen from MSU.

Ware, who wasn't even invited to the NFL scouting combine, really caused scouts to take notice of him at MSU's Pro Day last March when he ran a 4.37 second 40 and posted a 37.5 inch vertical leap. Al Davis has always been one to take a chance on speedy gifted athletes - Ware being no exception.

See this article over at the StateNews for a transcript from an interview with Ware and his thoughts on his emerging pro football career with the Oakland Raiders.
