I dunno what the others think about this, but i don't have the feeling i had when JC signed with the Broncos. DJ wanted to stay and offered to take a paycut here, but we simply wanted to go younger, so although it will be pretty hard to see him in the wrong colours, i can't blame him for just getting a new job, as long as he doesn't had similar offers on the table from other teams. I hope he nets a compensatory pick in, but we'll see. On the field he's still decent. Not someone i would like to rely on as a full time starter throughout a season, since i don't think he has the juice left to perform at a starter level an entire season, but occasionally i think u can send him on the field and get decent performances out of him. Whenever he retires i still hope he rejoins us to become a coach under Reid.

Taking them down from within. Bold strategy, DJ.

It looks as though he is still very solid in coverage (something we have had issues with in the past). I agree I don't think he is a full-blown every down LBer anymore given his age and injury history. But there is no denying his leadership and experience. We needed a player like him to be the leader of our unproven young guys.

He lost a step last year. As long as he doesn't lose another one, i think he will be valuable in coverage. But we'll see how this one turns out, since i do think there is a risk that he just falls apart like Tamba did last season.

If he loses a step no biggie, Raiders have young talented depth... need those insider notes to the Chiefs schemes. It’s not the talent that is better than the raiders, in the past it’s been the coaching ;)

Good, that we will not only change our offense, but due to new personal also the defense. Maybe u should ask your GM to spy the household of his son to get the playbook, but tell him as well, that he needs to call his son. The NFL might strip u of some picks for tampering. :D

According to Terez Paylor, DJ will earn 3 million for that year, which should net us a compensatory pick in. Probably just a 7th but at least something.
