Will Al Davis Provide a Second Chance to Jevon Kearse?

Jevon Kearse was released today from the Philadelphia Eagles

We will wait to see what he is offered over the next few weeks, but more than likely it will not top $3 million. 

Could this be the player the Oakland Raiders look to bring in through the free-agency Market?

Kearse was named the Rookie of the Year in 1999, when he was playing with the Tennessee Titans. He followed up that campaign with two more great years with the team. He soon became victim to injuries in his foot two years in a row and a knee sprain in 2003.

When he signed with the Eagles, there was a lot of hype surrounding him as he helped take the Eagles to the Super Bowl in his first year with the team. 

Kearse is a three-time Pro-Bowler, and two-time All-Pro mention. He has had some really good seasons, mixed in with some outright devastating ones as well.  

When it's all said and done, I think Jevon Kearse can be picked up relatively cheap, and with a proper amount of time to rehabilitate himself, he could be a worthwhile asset. 

He deserves another chance, and we, the Oakland Raiders, are known for picking up veterans who need a second chance.
