Raiders and NFL Talk / Re: NFL FREE AGENCY
« Last post by Matty Raider on April 02, 2014, 12:58:14 PM »
I am really liking what Reggie is doing this off-season. To be honest, would have loved to get Desean Jackson but I am okay with passing on him. I suspect he wanted to exact revenge on the Eagles twice a season for cutting him. Can't blame the guy. The top five WRs in this year's draft class are immediate starters. So we shall see. All I know is that Reggie has been doing his job, we will see if DA does his...........

We got former Niners CB Carlos Rogers. How does anyone feel about that?

I like the move. We've been getting better and better this offseason. Older and older, but better and better.

Here's one opinion on the Carlos Rogers move...and the Raiders' free agency strategy this off-season:

The older older part to me is fine because Reddie is smart and only locing these players up for  1 2 max 3 years. So we are not "stuck" with them. they are here to get us over the hump, change this locker room, and help our talented young guns. I am loving this offseason

Hit me up if you are over this side of the world.
You have never watched an NFL game if you have not watched it live at 1am/4am on Monday morning, clutching a mug of coffee and a slice of toast !

Your recent FB posting alerted to me that there was a podcast website ! I had always assumed that it was just a podcast  ::)

Im a Brit and been following the Raiders since 1982 .... when American Football came to UK .... loved the Raiders from the start and with MARCUS Allen  .. how could I refuse ? It was destiny !

I have followed the Raiders from all over the world ... Africa, Indonesia, Hong Kong and now Singapore.
First time I saw Raiders was in LA, and I have been to Oakland a handful of times over the years ... latterly sampling the Bad Boyz of BBQ's delights !

Pumped about the Raiders coming to Wembley. Looking forward to meeting new members of RAIDER NATION.
It gets a bit lonely in Singapore !

What is your vote?

Does he have concerning gang ties? Bay Area reporter Monte Poole says he went to San Quentin prison three years ago with DeSean to visit the inmates. He wrote this interesting article about the event entitied, "DeSean Jackson Walks With Gangsters". Read it if you haven't already and see what you think about DeSean and his "gang ties".

"DeSean Jackson Walks With Gangsters"
http://www.csnbayarea.com/raiders/desean-jackson-walks-gangsters

After reading the article, I have to say that I wouldn't be concerned. He seems to understand the consequences of gang-related behavior and is aware that he shouldn't go there (and empathizes with people who have gotten caught up in it). I can understand why the Eagles released him -- it's an image thing -- but if he landed with the Raiders, I'd be fine with it.

I feel the same way you do Raider G, after reading the article. Latest reports say Jackson has an interest in the Raiders, they were his favorite team growing up, he went to school nearby at Cal, etc. I hope the Raiders go for it.

I still don't understand though how the media keeps talking about how much cap money we have and how we can afford to offer him more than other teams. We have about $14 Million cap space left I believe, and we still have to sign whoever we draft. Does that seem like we have plenty of money to offer him, more than other teams?

I read we have an adjusted $19 million cap space available.

Thanks Oscar. I hope that is the accurate, up-to-date figure. The two sites I have below show different numbers, maybe out of date?

SpoTrac shows $15,454,199:                  http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/oakland-raiders/
