We can only speculate. But I think you answered it in your article. We will have more cap space next year. Plus it gives us the option to let him walk if he gets injured again. I hope he doesn't, but its nice to have that flexibility.

Quick question.. Who you guys hoping are Raiders draft this year?. I keep seeing shariff floyd, is he that good?. Who does he remind you guys of?. I personally would trade down!. To get a dline player on are 1st pick then with the trade get the second round pick to get a CB or a FS

We have a lot of areas that need addressing. Trading down might be difficult due to the lack of"top tier" players in draft. i don't know much about the group of players coming in this year. Just going on what I have read. I know most of our D needs addressing. Dline and dB's especially. Porter was a good pick up. But we need depth. It likely won't all happen in one season.

Sheriff Floyd is that good, yes. I think RM is going to shock everyone next month in the draft. I don't think he will draft a corner.Adams pplayed great while healthy last year. I think Porter and Adams are our starters. Chekwa & Jones/Ross our back ups. I think RM will bring back Hanson because he's cheap & plays the nickel pretty good. Ross can also play safety, both fs & as, but that's the area we need the most help. As it stands besides Ross the only other safety we have on roster is Branch. I think we have 6 corners & only 1 true safety. McKenzie will take a couple hybrid safeties to fit Allen's multiple scheme. You don't need shut down corners to run a dominate zone defense, but you need play making safeties versatile enuff to make the scheme work. At the least we need 3 more safeties, 1 starter & 2 hybrid back ups. I'm beginning to buy in on RM philosophy. It's not as much the players as it is the scheme & getting players to buy in. Look at all the top defenses in the league, they all have very good safeties & corners that may not be great but plays well in space.

Tavon austin is a beast!!.. He would make are offense way better!!. If we were to trade down around 4-13th pick, we could pick tavon austin and then get a cb in the second round with the trade. That wouldnt be a bad idea, tavon austin is just a freak!!..Thats just one option with are 1st rounder. I hope shariff floyd is a beast!. From what i read he sounds GOOD!

Gooooo Raiders!
