    Hmmm...unemployed, or on the Raiders?
    Tough call, but yeah, if those are the choices, Raiders might actually be the "1st choice."

    He evidently received offers (or at minimum workout offers) from the Jets and Chiefs, choosing the Raiders because he didn't want to leave California (though I suspect that with him being from San Bernardino area there's a decent chance he grew up a Raider fan - there's no accounting for taste).

    Unless he suddenly makes big strides in his route-running ability (or rather, his ability to run the route assigned to him rather than a completely different one) then I'm really not concerned. He was released because he couldn't stay healthy and frankly because there were better WR's than him on the roster (and Eddie Royal...).

    Bill Williamson of ESPN reported those factors were the reason Vincent wanted the Raiders more than any other of his other suitors.

    He’s a California kid, this gives him 2 chances to play against the Chargers (assuming he sticks with them and they don’t cut him to sign someone else) and that his family cheered for the Raiders when he was growing up.

    Apparently after working out for & agreeing with Oakland, VB cancelled his scheduled workouts with the Chiefs & Jets.

    Vincent, you were from SDSU, and you showed great promise (over 17 yards per catch) in 2011.
    So I pulled for you for 3 years, hoping you'd become a great Charger.
    Now you sign with the Raiders.
    You're dead to me, now, bro.

    And also, his ability to actually catch a ball must have been a factor too. Or is it inability?
