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"

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 The two sites I have below show different numbers, maybe out of date?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/

OverTheCap.com shows $14,681,081:     http://overthecap.com/teamcap.php?Team=Raiders&Year=2014

Reports are that Jones-Drew wants to get a deal with the Raiders done fast. Do you guys think it's a good idea? I think I heard he wants $3.5 Million for a year. He's 28 years old.

The Jets, Dolphins, Patriots and Steelers are reportedly interested in Jones-Drew.

You think a Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden tandem would be effective? Would Jones-Drew be better than Rashard Jennings was?

Here is his Twitter feed if you want to send him a message:

I think they should minus the injuries (that we gave him) if i remember right his best days were under Greg Olson. It adds veteran depth that will help Murray (who i think can be a star once healthy) and we know that he can play. A good back-up/ split timer to D-mac. Again... pending his physical.. lmao. If they all three come around that will be one hell of a trio in the backfield.

This simple fact that this article is stating that we actually went after Allen behind closed doors and actually offered him a contract bigger than anyone elses say a lot to me. This new org is out and after it like we all wanted them to be. they are going after not just big named players(there were plenty out there) but big name players that will OBVIOUSLY make a positive impact on our team. That is the reason i am starting to get excited already about this team. Now we wait to see how they handle this draft.
