According to Black Sports Online, Raiders cornerback Taiwan Jones was offered $200 by safety Tyvon Branch at Darren McFadden’s 26th birthday party. While very impressive, I don’t think it will help Jones earn a roster spot this season.

Against the Broncos runningbacks Michael Bush and Taiwan Jones ran the ball for the bulk of the carries in the loss, […]
Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden has been officially ruled out for this Sunday’s game against the Broncos. Michael Bush will carry the load in McFadden’s absence. I woudn’t even be surprised to see Rock Cartwright and Taiwan Jones get some carries.
The Oakland Raiders open up the 2011 NFL regular season against longtime hated division rival the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football.
