I like Keenan Lewis and Cary Williams for CBs

I don't know who we should go after for the DL & LBs because who knows what kind of scheme we'll be running, but I think it's vital to bring back Wheeler, Shaughnessy and Bryant.

I can see Jennings joining us and if he joins us cheap that will make Heyward-Bey expendable for cap space.

I think Eric Winston is who we need at RT and I think Andy Levitre will go well at guard.

I think both Bradshaw and Turner are good options for a backup RB...Bradshaw is my favorite of the two

For TE, I think bringing back Brandon Myers is our best option.

I was really disappointed today to not hear of any cap cuts made by us. I expect Rolando McClain to be cut for sure and very likely Tommy Kelly (which sucks because these were two of my favorite players), I'd like to see Huff and DHB go too.

DJ Williams from Denver would make an interesting addition. Having said that, he may not pass "the white glove test" of the new regime.

this team of the "new era RAIDERS" need to make the trenches mean and dirty! they need to get a d-linemen who is a sack artist whether it comes through free agency or the draft. the whole idea is to get this RAIDERNATION pumped up. the O-line is almost put together and need a great guard to protect the (qb). but the D needs to be, plain nasty! this is the time for this D made team of gm and coaches to shine. a time to remind them that that's the RAIDERS reputation. we need a well known sack artist or a best overall D pick from the draft. wishfull thinking is if we could get both. but something needs to spark this borrrrring a.s underpaid underacheivers of players or maybe? even coaches to wake this team up and not make it sound like we are going to have another purposely lost season again! can't wait to see who we pick up by tomorrow? maybe? they should have that check book all balanced out by now. and i'm sure they have the money to spend. you ever have one of those cheep a.s tight wad friends? oops! did i just say mckenzie?

shoot, at least, elvis dumerville! or elvis presley if he can bring back this team from the dead. c'mon RAIDERS! i want j abraham. if we don't get him, at least put word out that we were targeting him just to let the nation know that we want this (D) to be a killer defense. show interest, show spark, show you want to win ;)

Honestly, this is one of the better free agent classes i remember. Not necessarily because of the "star" power, but just mostly because of the talented depth at a variety of positions.

Phil Loadholt really jumps out at me. He would be a 1st or 2nd round tackle if he came out right now.

Grimes is 1 year removed from an achilles, and 1 more year from a Pro Bowl. As long as he is healthy, i would be happy with him or just about any 1 of those corners.

I don't see the broncos letting Dumervill go, but man that would be a great pick up.
