I think we will land Porter, given Coach Allen's history with him.  There have been whispers of that for a while now...

Lots of nice players out there...let's make some moves Oakland!

Randy:
Redskins lose $36 Million in cap space, Cowboys lose $10 Million.
28 teams were compensated with an extra $1.6 Million in cap room. The Raiders and Saints did not receive the extra cap space because they apparently violated rules too, by front loading contracts during the 2010 uncapped season. They just didn't violate to the extremes that the Redskins and Cowboys did.

I don't understand why the Redskins lose $36 Million and the Coyboys lose $10.....but the Raiders and Saints don't really "lose" any space....they just don't "gain" the extra $1.6 Million that the other 28 teams do. Does the league know that the Raiders and Saints cheated, but they just don't know how MUCH they cheated? Only that they cheated LESS than the Redskins and Cowboys? Why are the Raiders and Saints being penalized the exact same amount? Is the league saying, "well....we KNOW you cheated somehow, but we're not sure how MUCH you cheated....so we're just not going to let you share this extra cap space with the other teams." Seems kind of strange to me. I think we'll be getting some clarification, hopefully, as Bay Area media starts putting out more news on this situation.

Probably what the NFL said behind closed doors was...."hey, remember how Al Davis was resigning all those guys right before the lockout? We knew he was up to something......we just weren't sure what.....so since he's dead now..........why don't we just penalize his team?......since he's not around to sue us for it."

Update:

I just read something that clarifies the Raiders 2010 cap "violation" (even though there was no cap):

As to the Saints and Raiders, who won’t lose cap space but likewise won’t get the $1.6 million per team that will be redistributed based on the cap space taken from the Redskins and Cowboys, it’s our understanding that the violations were far less severe.  For the Raiders, the dumping of salary in 2010 arose specifically from the dumping of JaMarcus Russell from the roster.
