Curious everybody's thoughts on free agents we should bring in.

Ahmad Bradshaw was just recently cut by the Giants and I think would be a good addition to our backfield

Greg Jennings is expected to walk away from Green Bay and I would not be the least bit surprised to see him in silver & black next season because of the Green Bay-Reggie McKenzie connection. My only opposition is that he is often injured plus I like the receivers we have but Jennings is a proven veteran that is effective when healthy.

I haven't heard of any CBs that will be available and I think we should get some good linemen in the draft.

rod woodson? would ya? i was going to ask this question earlier.
has ties with mckenzie,
we need a player at his position
and of his experience.
can get a few years out of him.
problem is,
would he be willing to come back to oakland.
would he get along with d allen.
did woodson grow up with his temper..
may be kind of pricy.
i personally say, NO! but we need experienced players practically in all positions!

this is only the beginning of free agency. there will be that many more coming up. question is, which one will get away? we need experience in this team for it to be competetive while we "rebuild"!

Bradshaw is a good compliment to our run game. He has a motor, that's the kind of thing you can't coach. Added bonus for me, he went to Marshall. But realistically he will likely want too much money. Jennings I say no. Too old and our guys are getting better. Plus money.

I actually don't like Bradshaw too much. I've watched every single Giants game the past 2 years and he misses a lot of time with injury. Plus, he had way better run blocking in NY than he will here, so you can expect him to decline in two different directions if he comes here. Not a good fit for my opinion.

I would love Greg Jennings. But can we get him for 5 M a year? IDK, i feel like he will ask for at least 10 despite having lost a step.

I think if we land Jennings cheap it will be good then DHB becomes expendable. I like Bradshaw too.

A while back I remember us talking about Jake Long...I would consider him for good money, but these other guys mentioned, I think I would only go after them for cheap plus I don't think they are worth their asking price mainly because of their injury history and their teams didn't miss them that much

I can see this happening because of how McKenzie does business and I think DHB is making more than his performance is worth.

Misterio mentioned Charles Woodson...I have no opposition to him returning to the Raiders because we need major help in the secondary and I think he'd instantly improve us.

Jake Long and Mike Wallace will demand a lot of money and I don't see us seriously pursuing either, but you never know.

I still like Boss-Man. He was very under-utilized the SINGLE season he was with us.

I was very surprised and impressed with Brandon Myers this past season though and don;t consider TE a 'need' for us.

Having said that.....since they are both available.....I definitely would pay A LITTLE more for Boss than Myers.

Yeah.....I don't see Myers going anywhere.....unless he wants too much money. And if he DOES want too much.......then go get Boss.

I would also like to see Ausberry getting more involved in the Offense this year too. I know he had a couple dropped passes last season but I think he's got good hands and he's great at breaking tackles for YAC's.

the RAIDERS shure haven't made any noise other than who is a free agent. we know for sure seymour is out for the most part. but after that? nobody! if we knew what player we're franchise tagging or if we can afford to franchise tag someone or what players are on the trade market, at least we would know who we can pick up on free agency. i would go after jake long or osi osiminuora, or jonathan vilma. but? we don't know if palmer is staying or going. they say mcfadden is not going anywhere but what if a trade deal sounds good them? dhbey? so much we can do but no word and nothing is happening!

Probably won't hear much about Raider Free Agents for a while. McKenzie's style of managing the cap is to let them test the market. As far as guys with existing contracts that should be more cap friendly? You would think there is some kind of plan that should happen sooner. Last year, it seemed that if a player was productive, they were kept (ex. Seymour). If a player was not productive (Wimbley) or made a lot of penalties (Rhoutt), they were gone. I would like to see the Raiders go to a three year plan. Take Palmer, DHB, Huff contracts over three years to become the core of the team. Extend McFadden a couple of years. In the end, get their contracts more cap friendly, make them more secure and let them buy into the three year plan. If they don't buy in, I guess it is time to part ways. One would think that McKenzie would want to do this first, before the draft and before negotiating with existing free agents in March

it doesn't even sound exciting anymore about getting certain free agents like jenkins. it just seems like we are going to be targetinig cheep low budget free agents. look, i know jenkins can help and do dcently good here. but chances are, he'll go elswhere, right? what looks kind of sucky is, nobody is tagged, everybody is free to go and our season looks pretty much like last season. i don't even care much for dmac but even i wanna keep him around just to keep this team together. i know players like seymour has to leave and even some of the newby players, but for the most part, try to keep the team together and add one great player to the list like jake long or john abraham, and even that fool derrelle revis, just to keep this team ticking and looking forward to "rebuilding". let's see what else is out there that can thrill this team. in the mean time, we gotta try to re-sign our free agents. so they can feel like a team!

Its just all part of the process...I'm tired of waiting myself, but theres not much they can do with the cap mess Al Davis left behind. Seems to me that the new regime wants to build their own team from scratch
