Raiders Sign Jarvis Moss
The Oakland Raiders officially announced on Wednesday that they have signed defensive end Jarvis Moss in a move to replace Trevor Scott, who will miss the rest of the season after an ACL injury he suffered on Sunday.
The news was first made public via an unverified Twitter account that presumably belongs to Moss. "JMossVsJarvis" tweeted, "So it's official! I'm an Oakland Raider! God is good thank him!"
Moss, 26, is a three-year veteran. He was originally drafted 17th overall out of Florida by the Denver Broncos. At 6-foot-7 and 257 pounds, Moss made the transition from defensive end to outside linebacker after Denver lost All-Pro pass rusher Elvis Dumervil during the preseason. Moss had a difficult time with the transition and on November 17, he was released by Denver.
Trevor Scott was the starter at weakside defensive end before his injury in Pittsburgh on Sunday. Tom Cable confirmed on Monday that Scott had indeed torn his anterior cruciate ligament and will be lost for the season.
