Well, it's not too too much if the team doesn't plan on cutting Whitehead or Nelson. They would have combined to add more than $10 million to next year's cap. It's still a lot though, like $85 million in cap space.

Whitehead and Jordy already got their bonus, so I'm pretty sure they is coming back.

Strange move given that we don’t need the cap space. Looks like a move to say thanks to the veteran leaders of the team and maybe to show potential free agents that we do pay ?

We need to land 2 top tier free agents and 1-2 2nd tier. That's a successful free agency when coupled with draft.

Get a DE/cb/lb/OT

The Raiders get 6 million if they cut Penn

It is only successful if the players come and do well.

We need to do a far better job with next years signings as this years crop have been very disappointing.

If we can land a starting wr, de, mlb and olb in fa i'd be very happy. Have lee, whitehead and morrow fight for the final lb spot.

Add DE and 2 DBs in the 1st round. Preferably trading down and getting another 1st round pick for next year (and one 2nd this year).Assuming the picks work out we'd have a very decent defense.

I'm hopefull we can get a RT out of our current guys and a journeyman fa.

Use the 2nd,3rd and later round picks on bpa.

Melvin has been fine since week like 5.. lack of pass rush and safety help wasn't doing him any favors. Whitehead is fine if he is the second or third best lb. He can't be the guy.

I could be wrong but I think this makes it easier to cut them.  They would have no impact on the 2019 cap if they are cut.  It also buys us more time to decide if we want to keep them.  We have no deadline to make a decision.

They could have cut them without paying them!

But that would look really bad to incoming FAs if we sold those guys on making a certain amount while they were here.  They keep their word and players talk so it helps us.

Maybe should have been Mack and that's why we will all be mind blown because they are going to over pay somebody and we will all be like wtf!

Sorry but most teams cut players before paying roster bonuses if they don't plan on keeping them.
