Javon Walker was baffling...even for a headcase...He was the highest paid player in the NFL(not by size of contract...but by per catch). He made 14miliion from us for a total of 15 catches. That is insane! Granted part of that was due to sitting him most of last year but still....
I am bummed about losing Ellis. He is a stand up guy. and I hate when we lose leadership that we desperately need.

i'm with u on this heartache all we can do is hope Ellis doesnt sign and we bring him back. some rumors already say that. but i agree with you Ellis is a hit to the lockerroom but 77 Matt Shaughnessy is looking like a late round steal. its crazy cuz after the first pick the rest of the drafts have been great.

g ellis wanted to be here. leadership he had. injuries got him released and he sensed his release. i would have kept him around. i too like the way m shaughnessy is comming around.

I hated to lose Ellis too, but durability is the chance you take on older vets like that...Great locker room leader though. Shaughnessy made a good push at the end of last season and I think that lead to the release of Ellis along with franchising Seymour. I'm still wondering if Trevor Scott is gonna play LB or DE next year. He really made a good impression at LB and I think we should leave him there.

I'm interested in what the other lb's will bring to us. I know everyone says we should draft an OT, but I really really like McClain.

we lost (de) g ellis,(dt) g warren. if we lose (lb) j alston and and (lb) k morrison, it sounds as if we are going that direction in the draft! only (ot)c green in the (O-line) is what we have lost. well, besides a (wr) and a (rb). so,(D) sounds like it's definetley NOT out of the question.

Pierce is a LB. I wonder if they are dumping the roster to save money to somehow come up with another 1st rounder.

a pierce was released because of some head injury they felt could be a problem down the line on his near future. so i believe he is a free agent. but this guy is a great team leader. can rally up the troops. i don't really see r seymour rallying the team even though he is good team inspiration. a pierce can talk it up. but after his comments about saying that "playing RAIDERS was like playing scrimage" might have ruined his chances of being considered despite us needing a player like him. he's out there!(still).

Falling off a turnip truck must have been a real bitch. Its a pity the same truck didn't whack into AL while being wheeled to his car. Maybe the Raiders would have taken a page out of the management system put together by the Big Tuna in Miami and had a few winning seasons by now.
