Raiders waive Punter Johnny Townsend

Recommended Posts

Was hoping he just had a down year because he was great in college. 

Glad we went with the best guy though.

Absolutely terrible draft strategy and pick. He would have been undrafted most likely and the Raiders panicked after Scott went 1 pick earlier.

Worse... they actually kept him on an entire season when they could have cut and put him on the PS.

Such a bad pick.

Definitely a panic pick after seeing Dickson and Scott go. Still though, he was a good Punter in college and I have no idea how he regressed this badly.

I am happy to see Gruden and Mayock realize the mistake and cut our losses.

so many wasted picks last year. PJ Hall, Parker, Townsend, traded a 3rd for Bryant.  Weird how Johnny was the best SEC punter in history to a scrub in the NFL

This is how I feel. Thought Gruden might keep him because it might look bad to cut so quickly but it needed to be done. Townsend is young and can get better with this or tuck his tail and run. Even if he balls out after this I'm happy he was cut. He was so bad we could have cut him mid season last year.

Good for a college program maybe. He wasn't actually good though. His 4.2 hang time average wasn't going to measure up in the NFL. He didn't regress. He stayed the same, the game just got bigger.

Please don't let social media Raider fans ever change.... Some are legit upset because they didn't "trade Towsend like the Ravens did their kicker and get a 5th".
