    I know it's early but here's a few additions I think that will get us over the hump

    A.P. - injury prone but can be that instant number 1 that will make everyone else that much better

    Alshon Jeffrey - bye bye seth

    Kawann Short/Nick Fairley - Enough said right here. DT has been a huge weakness

    Eric Berry- :eek:

    Chiefs are $3 million in the hole next year... but a rollover might get them about 3 million a year.. thats not counting Berry and Poes current contract.. they aint in a good position... They paid Houston big.. his cap is 22 million and he's hurt... Berry could be a real possibility. He's from Atlanta.. so that could be a place he'll go... Short is my #1 go after dude.. Cut Williams and we should have no problem with no ding in our 43 million if we give him 5-6 million a year....

    much as i like berry - we just drafted KJ and they play the same position. Berry could switch to FS but it would be a big waste of his talent.

    AP looks pretty done. I don't think we could give him enough volume to keep him happy and effective.

    Jeffrey isn't going to sign up somewhere to be a #3.

    Short and Fairley are good options to help out - but I don't see Carolina letting Short get out of the building. Fairley has been OK his last few stops - but noone has been banging down his door to retain him either.

    If you want a cheapish RB - maybe look to Eddie Lacy. He is an effective runner and brings a different set then the guys we have. the dream of course is leveon bell.

    outside of short there aren't many game changing DTs hitting the market - but there might be guys that are "better then what we have". Id rather look to the draft here if we cant come away with him. Though Bennie Logan out of Philly is a guy that might be overlooked and a good option. Maybe look at Brandon Williams and Dontari Poe if we think Dan Williams/Jelly can't be salvaged as our big boys.

    Theres a big crap sandwich at S outside of berry as well. our own Nate Allen being one of the better options. Rashad Johnson and Tony Jefferson arent bad either. But again they aren't the FS types we need.

    The Oakland Raiders projected to be $41,285,487 UNDER the cap (all salary info via Over The Cap) for 2017 and with 42 players under contract.

    (EastBayNinerFan has the combined total of the salary cap surplus carry over from 2016 and the cap space for 2017 as $50,774,712). That might seem like a lot of money but Khalil Mack and Derek Carr will be in the last year of their contracts in 2017 and need to be extended. Cooper will need to be extended the following year and don’t forget they still need to extend Latavius Murray before free agency begins in 2017.

    Dollar figures listed are player’s 2016 cap hits.

    43OLB Malcolm Smith - $3,000,000

    Malcolm Smith is 27 years old and was originally drafted by the Seahawks in the seventh round of the 2011 draft. Smith signed with the Raiders in March of 2015. He has 91 tackles, two forced fumbles, one interception and three passes defended this season. PFF has him rated as the 76th best linebacker in the NFL this season. His best year was in 2013 with the Seahawks when he was the Super Bowl MVP.


    S Nate Allen - $3,000,000

    Nate Allen is 29 years old and was originally drafted by the Eagles in the second round of the 2010 draft. Allen was signed by the Raiders in March of 2015. He has started only three games this year and has 32 tackles, three passes defended, and two interceptions.

    CB DJ Hayden - $3,284,813

    DJ Hayden is 26 years old and was drafted by the Raiders in the first round of the 2013 draft. Hayden has started only two games this season and has 37 tackles, six passes defended, and I forced fumble. PFF had him as the 104th best CB in the NFL before he was placed on IR after week 12 with a hamstring injury. Do we officially have a first round bust here?

    QB Matthew McGloin - $2,553,000

    Matthew McGloin is 27 years old and was picked up by the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2013. McGloin has not started a game since 2013 when he had a 55.9 completion percentage and a quarterback rating of 76.1. McGloin is expected to start this week against the Broncos after Carr broke his leg in last week’s game. It will be fun to see what Musgrave has done with him.


    WR Andre Holmes - $2,000,000

    Andre Holmes is 28 years old and was originally picked up by the Viking as an undrafted free agent in 2011. The Raider claimed Holmes off of waiver in May of 2013 and he was suspended for substance abuse for four games in July of the same year. Holmes has 14 receptions for 126 yards and 3 touchdowns this season.

    RT Menelik Watson - $1,525,635
    Menelik Watson is 28 years old and was drafted by the Raiders in the second round of the 2013 draft. Watson has started four games this season. His overall PFF rating is 69.1, which is not great but not awful either.

    ILB Perry Riley - $899,990

    Perry Riley is 30 years old and was originally drafted by Washington in the fourth round of the 2010 draft. Riley was signed by the Raiders in October of this year. He has 44 tackles, two forced fumbles, and one pass defended this season. PFF has him rated as the 11th best linebacker in the NFL this season. That sounds like a nice, midseason pickup.

    43OLB Daren Bates - $850,000

    Daren Bates is 26 years old and was originally picked up by the Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2013. Bates was signed by the Raider in March of this year. He has 12 tackles in limited action. Bates sounds like a good name for a motel.

    S Brynden Trawick - $825,000

    Brynden Trawick is 27 years old and was originally picked up by the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2013. Trawick signed with the Raiders in March of this year. He has 14 tackles in limited action. He had 15 tackles with the Ravens last season.

    RB Latavius Murray - $701,550

    Latavius Murray is 26 years old and was drafted by the Raiders in the sixth round of the 2013 draft. Murray has 190 carries for 777 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. He had 266 carries for 1,066 yards in 2015. I think the Raiders will be extending him.

    TE Mychal Rivera - $1,697,213

    Mychal Rivera is 26 years old and was drafted by the Raiders in the sixth round of the 2013 draft. Rivera has 16 receptions for 183 yards this season. His has only started one game since 2014 when he had 58 receptions for 534 yards in 10 starts. Does anyone know his drop rate?

    43DT Stacy McGee - $695,670

    Stacy McGee is 26 years old and was picked by the Raiders in the sixth round of the 2013 draft. How many sixth round picks did the Raiders have in 2013? McGee has 17 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles this season. He is 6’3” and weighs 310 pounds. With a 79.9 PFF rating he may be a player to take a closer look at. You can check out his interpretation of Newton’s Laws of Motion in the main picture.

    Remember what Lyndon Johnson said about J. Edgar Hoover?

    “It's probably better to have him inside the tent pissing out, than outside the tent pissing in.”

    I don't see us being any sort of player in FA....Possibly cutting Damn Williams and signing a Kawaan Short, I would love to and can imagine that scenario....We gonna re sign a few guys.....And lean on the draft this go round.....LB, CB, OL/DL depth, WR.....Gonna go into next year after the draft with a top 5 roster....Probably top 3.....I thought we had a top 5 coming in this year....
