    We have to wait for it all to play out. However, I could positively spin it saying Mack at 22 per vs Clowney at 20 per, 1st rounder this year, and 1st rounder next year. I know some won't like that spin, but there it is.

    I believe that's the kind of DE that PG wants anyway. 6-6 280 seems to be what he likes from his days in Cincy with Dunlap and Johnson. Give him 3 or 4 guys that can all get 8-10 sacks a year is more his mo and not one guy getting 15-20. Plus they all have the size to anchor in the run game. Leads me to believe guys like Ferrell, Sweat, and Gary are better fits.

    I agree, he probably won't be flashy like Bosa or Allen. I'm a firm believer in drafting BPA by need though. DE is by far our biggest need, so you take the best available DE at #4 or you get out of that spot for me.

    I've circled back around to him too. At #4, he's probably our best option for what our defense needs. I'd like to trade down though if possible.
  5. The ________ Raiders? Update: Talks with Oakland resume

    Being a fan from Ohio, I have no stake in where they play, Oakland or Vegas. I try to put myself in someone's shoes from Oakland and understand how painful that would be to lose "my team". With that said. There is not a whole lotta love I can give to Oakland anymore. The Davis family has been trying to get a new stadium there since the 70s or 80s? This isn't just about Mark. This isn't breaking news or a recent development. Oakland didn't do it's part, plain and simple. Al took the team to LA to get a stadium and failed. Went back to Oakland in the 90s, but continued to try and get a new place. After 40+ years of trying the "Raiders" will have a new stadium. I am a fan of the "Raiders". This will be the 3rd city that "my" team has played in in my life. As for the dysfunction talk, I don't get that either. 40+ years of trying to get new digs. It finally happens and everyone is salty about it? Get over yourselves. I don't see how playing in Oakland this season is so bad either. Mark looked for other options after being sued by Oakland. Can you blame him?? Wouldn't you look for a new place to live sooner if your city sued you for moving next year?

    Still have the opportunity to match any deal if we truly want to keep him, but yes the tender is a deterrent for some.

    Plus, I'm pretty sure no one knows how the contract is setup. Is the total value $100 mill? Is it bonuses and incentives that need to be reached? Is there an out for either side? I guess it's standard for Raiders fans to just assume the worst.

    I can't see putting a 2nd round tender on any of these guys, definitely not a 1st.

    Looks decent on paper, but I don't think PG will look for those type of DEs. Fowler and Burns compare to Key IMO. We already have him in the situational pass rusher spot. Micheal Johnson, Carlos Dunlap, Frostee Rucker are the typical body style he's had. Solid in the run game and decent pass rush across the line. I don't like Ferrell or Gary at #4, but they are more in line with his history. Montez Sweat and Ziggy Ansah might be a pair.
  10. Mock Offseason 2: Post Super Bowl, Pre Combine

    Don't want to be mean, but I stopped reading after this. RFA contracts are all 1 year deals and typically 2 million is the highest you'll ever see. 1 year, 1.5 mill would be more accurate and Worley's deal is the most realistic. As for Ateman, we signed him to a 4 year deal last year, not sure why he is a FA at all. If anything he is ERFA, as is Cabinda. Last years numbers: Richard 1yr -540 Harris 1yr - 630 Worley 1yr - 630 Ateman - conflicting reports. One site says we signed him to a 4yr 2.5 deal and another says 1yr - 480 Cabinda 1yr - 480
  11. Mock Offseason 2: Post Super Bowl, Pre Combine

    I'm in the same boat. If Bosa and Allen are off the board, which they should be, please trade down. There are at least 6 pass rushers that we could pick up later in the first round and I don't think any of them deserve to go at #4.
  12. The ________ Raiders? Update: Talks with Oakland resume

    The only potential effect this has on free agency is 1 year contract signings. Money talks and so will state of the art facilities in year 2.

    Just like the Mack trade, everyone is judging things a third of the way in.
  14. 2019 Free Agency Thread

    The mistake is trying to pull anything and everything you possibly can to try to validate an opinion that doesn't matter, to be quite frank. Until proven otherwise, Carr is "our" starting QB. It's your right to not like this, but everyone has an opinion on it and I think both sides have dug in. For now, those who want to replace Carr, are just going to have to wait. Beating a dead horse is not going to change anything.

    I may stop watching games if we draft Murray. People are getting carried away with these tiny QBs.
