I have been hearing whisperings of him possibly resigning.  Some are from random twitter people and some are from Mary Kay (which I don't like reading or ever believing) but I want to believe....

If true, I imagine it's gonna take at least a few days.  If he was gonna re-sign with us right away, then he would've agreed to a re-structure/pay cut.

If he can beat the Browns' number in the open market, he's gone.  If not, he may come back at a lower number to us.

Maurice Hurst, DT, just got cut by the Raiders. He might be a good get and is still relatively young.

As far as I can tell, he cleared waivers.  That's surprising, seeing as he was still on his rookie deal.

Must be something else going on with this one.

I don't think that's a bad way to handle it.  I actually like how Berry and Co are handling that because if we couldn't keep him, were giving him the opportunity to do the best for he and his family, and if that's with us he can still stay!  It makes him happier about taking a pay cut too because he knows were not being unfair about it.

Yeah I thought the same thing.  He's got to be dealing with something or may be a problem child.  Also there was a reason he dropped so far in the draft right?

Thats right!  Well then I don't see that as a reason he was cut from the Raiders.

I would love to know what it was.

Yeah, it's a good question. Because the guy who started over him is pretty universally considered to have played much, much worse than him.

I have a low view of that coaching staff, so I'm willing to chalk it up to incompetence and personality dynamics. But obviously I don't know for sure and could definitely be wrong.

The guy's college film is INSANE. Not sure I've seen another DT his size use OGs as battering rams to beat their own QBs into submission the way he did in NCAA.

And honestly when we played him his rookie year, I thought he CONSTANTLY got to the QB and put pressure on him.

Not much of a run defender but he can certainly rush the passer.

Yeah, he's definitely a penetrating, upfield focused DT as opposed to more of a space eater. But that does sometimes make for splash plays in the run game when he ends up in the backfield during the handoff. But yeah, you're not signing him to dramatically upgrade your run defense.
