The Oakland Raiders grieved quickly and then moved on. Last year, Zach Miller led the Raiders with 60 catches, and it was very clear that he was the most reliable target for Jason Campbell or whoever else was under center for the Raiders. Now that he’s taken his act to Seattle, the Raiders moved quickly to replace him with another reliable target in Kevin Boss.
The former New York Giant came out of nowhere to establish himself in 2008 during the Giants magnificent 12-4 run. As a fifth round choice, Boss was another gem found late in the draft and he continued to display strong hands for Eli Manning in the two seasons since. Now with the Raiders, he will provide the same thing for either Campbell or the newly signed Trent Edwards.
Boss receives a four-year, $16 million according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Last year, Boss only had 35 catches, but he made the most of it with 531 receiving yards.
