Raiders sign DT's Johnathan Hankins & Clinton McDonald

Recommended Posts

Awesome pick up imo. 

In lesser news, we also got another veteran.

Fantastic signing, Hankins was one of the few impact guys left.  And since he will play DT, easiest adjustment to make.

It will be interesting to see if Hankins' gamble to hold out for more $ (as he had tons of interest, but apparently wanted to match the 7M he was going to get from IND b4 they cut him) pays off.  Of course, the irony if OAK pays up for Hankins won't be lost on many (although 1 year for a DT is a lot different than many years at 20M per for Mack, still kind of ironic if the Raiders end up doling out significant coin for Hankins).

Very surprising. Would not have expected Gruden to kick the tires on a player younger than 30, let alone 26.

And DT Clinton McDonald too. Justin Ellis and PJ Hall are injured.

Interested to see the contract details here... I think Hankins and his agent lost him a lot of money this offseason.

Great pick up if he’s in shape. 

Weird that it took this long - if it was strictly a money thing, Hankins really took a bath on this one.

RAIDER NATION STAND UP! 

 

Perfect pick it up. Those young guys aren’t ready. Need a quality starter. Might not be ready to go till week 3?

Good for the Raiders and the players but I think the Cardinals should have been all over this sooner:

A week too late. They probably didn’t want to sign either of them before last week because if they were on the roster in week 1 their contract would guaranteed for the season because they’re vested veterans. The Redskins did the same thing in the past and their DL suffered because of it. Bottom line, they sure could’ve used Hank at NT and McDonald at 3-tech vs Gurley.
