Raiders | More On Garner

The Oakland Tribune reports Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden had all the right things to say about newly signed RB Charlie Garner yesterday, but one comment raised a few questions. When wishing retired RB Napoleon Kaufman well, Gruden said, "I am not one to compare players. I am not looking at Charlie as a Napoleon-type back. I look at him as an every-down back who can come in here and help us win games." Some questioned the comment about Garner being an every-down back and how that played out with current RB Tyrone Wheatley. "We have an offensive team that will allow opportunities for Tyrone, Charlie, Tim Brown and all the offensive skill guys," Gruden said. He compared it to Philadelphia when he had Garner and Ricky Watters in his backfield. Of course there was some concern about lack of carries back then from both parties.
