  1. Raiders sign CB Prince Amukamara

    Yeah Guenther likes a deep CB group and I guess with the game day roster increased to 48 that we could carry an extra DB that doesn’t play ST.
  2. Raiders sign CB Prince Amukamara

    Agree with a lot of this but don’t understand what Johnson has done to be ahead of Lawson at this point ? Lawson played pretty well at the back end of the season, had 4 pass break ups in 1 game against the Chargers and showed he can play either CB spot and nickel, and is good on ST.
  3. Raiders sign CB Prince Amukamara

    Good move, if Arnette outplays him in camp then Prince will likely be cut given he doesn’t play much ST. Vet presence at CB was needed.
  4. FA 2020

    Yeah I don’t agree it’s not a money thing. Jordan did pretty well last year in limited game time. Imo he probably thinks he is better than vet minimum, being so far down the roster and wants to see if there is a better option out there. Whereas our FO is probably thinking with the moves for Collins and Nassib that they don’t want to offer more than vet min for our 9th DL with a history of suspensions.
  5. FA 2020

    He’s probably waited for the draft to play out and see if any teams need DE help more than we do. Maybe he didn’t like rushing from DT so might be wanting a better fit. Just because he hasn’t signed doesn’t mean we are waiting around.
  6. FA 2020

    If he’s our 9th DL then we wouldn’t want to pay more than the vet minimum would we? That’s probably the problem.
  7. Recapping the first Las Vegas Raiders Draft

    I like the draft in terms of getting players fitting the mould of what we want the team to be however there are some question marks for me. Ruggs should be an interesting tool to use but I can’t help feeling we may live to regret not picking up Lamb or Jeudy especially as we could have had a trade down and still picked either. Arnette will be expected to start and looks to be tough competitive player but just feel Mayock could have worked a trade and picked him up later much like Ferrell last year. A worrying trend. Edwards looks a good pick and hopefully a long term cheaper replacement for Williams. Bowden looks like a luxury pick, not sure if he will be a RB as suggested. As @Rolnisays he looks boom or bust pick. The Muse pick is the one I don’t like, seems a huge project at LB as he looked stiff at safety so asking him to put on weight is a worry. i like Simpson thought he was a good fit, hopefully he can be a guard for us for a while. Robertson I can see why everyone likes him but I have my concerns over a 5’8 corner. Hopefully he can be a long term replacement for Joyner though. As @Bitty 2.0rightly says it isn’t about winning the draft but about winning games. I like that we have an offense that should give teams headaches. Defensively we are going to need Arnette to play well off the bat and for Mullen, Crosby and Ferrell to continue to progress. Hopefully they can cope with the pressure,
  8. Raider 2020 UDFA signings

    I’m not sure I am getting this? Our veteran depth is preventing UDFAs from signing? Surely that is only a bad thing if the UDFA is better than the vet. We did sign Eberle so what’s the problem ?
  9. Nah I’ve no need for that, already figured you out.
  10. Yeah and you ignored mine. Every time someone disagrees with you, you always make it personal, always.
  11. I’m not gonna labour this but you always make it personal when someone disagrees with you, always. Now you are playing the victim.
  12. Nah BP still thinks we need to improve on Carr but is just sick of this nonsense. BR always claims he is being persecuted when his contradictions are highlighted, its pathetic tbh.
  13. Pick #109 is in: G, John Simpson, Clemson

    Thought we needed tackle before guard but really like Simpson. Potential starter in a year or so, Happy with this pick
  14. Where’s Lawson ?
  15. Draft Day Thread: Day 3

    Yes. Lawson.
