Free agent CB Vontae Davis is on his way to the airport after visiting with the #Raiders. Told me he met w/t new coaching staff. Talked about building on the group of players they have. On his way home to "reflect on my visits for a couple days or so. Other teams interested too."

Raiders free agency: Jerick McKinnon could play a Charlie Garner role


With uncertainty surrounding Marshawn Lynch for the Raiders in 2018, the team may want to go out and spend some money on Minnesota’s Jerick McKinnon.




Over the last seven weeks of the Oakland Raiders 2017 season, running back Marshawn Lynch was the feature back the fans were hoping he would be all season. Lynch ran hard in the second half of the season, and finished with over 800 yards rushing. In a season where the strife between the organization and the City of Oakland was apparent, Lynch served as an olive branch of peace, even if it was for only one season.

Heading into next season, there is no certainty that Lynch will be on the roster. The Raiders have until March 18 to cut him, or they will have to pay him a $1 million roster bonus. Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has said that he would like a Lynch that is “all-in” if he is to be the team’s feature back this season, though the team may want to go with a feature back that can do more than just run the ball.

During the 2001 season, which was Gruden’s last with  the team before being shipped to Tampa Bay, 29-year old Charlie Garner was the feature back for the team. Garner was a do-everything back that season, leading the team in rushing yards (839), while finishing third on the team in receiving yards (578). The Raiders had both Tim Brown and Jerry Rice go over 1,000 yards receiving that season, so finishing No. 3 behind those two men is quite the accomplishment.

Looking at the current free agent class, there is one running back who certainly sticks out as a player who could have the same impact as Garner did that season. Sure, Le’Veon Bell and Carlos Hyde are both technically free agents, but the expectation is that they will return to both the Pittsburgh Steelers, and San Francisco 49ers respectively. Minnesota Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon will likely test the free agent waters, and the Raiders could be a nice landing spot.

The Vikings are set at running back with Dalvin Cook returning from a torn up knee, as he showed flashes of brilliance before being injured in 2017. Former Raiders running back Latavius Murray is also in the mix in the Twin Cities, and he has a nice season with the Vikings last year. McKinnon could be the odd man out, and the Raiders would be wise to at least gauge the interest of the 25-year old.

McKinnon has gotten better every season with the Vikings, and he was really a huge part of their passing game in 2017. The speedster was targeted 68 times, hauling in 51 balls for over 400 yards receiving. Playing in a part-time role, McKinnon had nearly 1,000 yards from scrimmage, which would put him only behind Marshawn Lynch on the 2017 Raiders. There is not a lot of tread on the tire with McKinnon, and the price certainly could be right.

Johnson is over rated because he's big. He's a pretty average corner. Lamarcus Joyner is a Swiss army knife as a safety and could fill in great for Reggie Nelson. That would really help our secondary. He and Joseph could be a great safety tandem that could cover and thump in the run. They would be interchangeable.

Worth a call to his agent

Ian Rapoport @RapSheet

The #Rams are expected to apply the franchise tag to a player tomorrow. They are still undecided between WR Sammy Watkins and S Lamarcus Joyner. Tagging one means the other may test the market.

Looks like Joyner might get the tag... Franchise money for a WR is sky high, doubt they wanna pay Watkins that much...guaranteed, for 1 year, with his injury history...

With that said, call me crazy... but I'd take a look at Watkins... for the right price...

Raiders A Team To “Keep An Eye On” For Muhammad Wilkerson
Posted: Mar 6th, 2018 | Author: RaidersBeat.com

Add another name to the list of high profile free agents presently being linked to the Raiders.

Mo Wilkerson.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Wilkerson is expected to visit the Packers, but Rapoport said to “keep an eye on the Oakland Raiders” to be another option for the 28 year-old defensive tackle.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was said to have been interested in Wilkerson going all the way back to 2015 when it was believed the Jets were trying to trade him – or maybe more accurately, when Wilkerson’s agent was trying to get the Jets to trade him.

Wilkerson isn’t expected to command anywhere near the money he was paid by the Jets and it’s likely that he’ll end up weighing a handful on one or two-year “prove-it” deals.

For what it’s worth, defensive tackle is arguably the weakest position group on the Raiders roster. As of now, the only defensive tackles under contract in Oakland are Darius Latham, Treyvon Hester, and Eddie Vanderdoes, who is recovering from an ACL tear suffered in the final game of the season.

Just spoke w/ an agent who expects Allen Robinson to get 10-12M / yr and 25M+ guaranteed if he hits FA. With the insane numbers being tossed around this offseason, and guys like Ty Hilton making 14M per, that sounds like a palatable deal for ARob

No, but he needs some development, but Joyner can play slot, he's versatile. Every team needs three safeties and 4 corners for dime and quarters packages.

Doesn't matter, Joyner got tagged

Defensive Tackles can be found in any round. Linebackers are not. With that being said, where's the greater need? Linebacker or Defensive Tackles.

I'd say D tackle at this point, I think we only have two on the roster. Linebacker we have guys, also depends if Bowman comes back. But none of what we got compare with Smith and Edmunds. Irvin would be the closest thing but he's only got one year left on his deal.

Agreed, DT is our biggest need...

There's a reason that the top DTs have been the first order of business in FA for the last 3-4 years...

Malik Jackson
Suh
Campbell

All top targets for us the last 3 years... ALL chose to chase the money in Tax Free Florida...

With Bowman, I like our LB corp, especially with talk of Irvin moving back to SAM...

Post by: JackTatum on March 07, 2018, 01:40:56 PM
I'd say Linebacker is a bigger need then DT.  If the news is to be believed we're linked to Trumaine Johnson who's a corner back. That leads me to believe that we'll be drafting for a Linebacker since  we've appeared to have shown no interest in bringing Bowman back.

And they would no doubt, cost an arm and a leg... Sherman would come on a trade, but Chancellor could have to take a prove it deal...

This would be much easier if KNJ was still SOMEWHERE on the staff, lol...

If Kam isn't with the Seahawks it's because his career is over. His neck is rumored to be career ending. Another bad hit and he could be paralyzed.

Sherman was really good, he's ok now. Injuries are catching up to him. I'd like to get younger at cb. Pray Coneley can play and obi comes around.

Martin can't even hold Marshawn's jock strap!

Not even close!

I think it means that Gruden is putting all his bread in one basket. You need a plan B if plan A doesn't work out.

Agreed you need a plan B however not sure if Martin is it with his up and down career.we have a deep draft of potential #1 RBs coming out BUT Chucky  ;D has a track record revitalizing careers of old RBs ie. Wheatley, Garner.

True dat but when on his game has been a top RB in the league..no Lynch of course. I remember him shredding us in Oakland a few years back and I was pissed at the Oakland homeboy and hoping he would be on our squad.

Because he's mostly been used as a punt returner. Offers relatively little as a receiver.

IN fairness, he's only been suspended once in his career, and that was in 2011 for 2 games...

And statistically he's still a top 5 (Elite) DT in the league... One of the few 90+ ratings given out by PFF...

The question is, can we afford him...

I might even bet money he gets signed by the Patriots, lol...

IMO, there's no way in hell you pass up a chance to pair Mack with Suh...

He joked that he'd play for free to be on the eagles. Maybe he'll play for us for 1 dollar. And in fairness, he's only been suspended once but he's done some other questionable stuff that he didn't get punished for. He's "accidentally" stepped on a few guys and 2 groin kicks.

But it would be exciting to have him and Mack rushing together

I don't know man... that's a tough, especially if I gotta base it off last season...

The L. Murray from last year was pretty good, lol... Not like the one we were used to seeing... Seems like he ran harder, tougher... like he had something to prove...

To be honest, I haven't seen much of D. Murray lately... He wasn't really used in Philly, and seemed like he declined after starting hot in Tennessee...

That's a tough one... but I gotta say L. Murray... I was kinda upset when we let him walk... him paired with Lynch (last year) would be way better than Lynch and Richard/Washington...

I know I'll take either one of them over Doug Martin, lol...

He's at the end of his career. If he's going to take less money like the Raiders would offer, he'd take it from a team that plays for the SB every year.

Over the weekend McKenzie received a phone call from surprise free agent cornerback Richard Sherman, according to Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, checking to see if he had any interest in a top-tier cornerback.

McKenzie told Sherman that he didn’t have enough salary-cap space to compete for Sherman’s services. Ultimately, Sherman signed a three-year contract with the 49ers that bears the resemblance of a one-year, $7 million deal, based upon a phenomenal breakdown by ProFootballTalk.com.

So what's Cooper worth. He had two 1,000 yard seasons and a 700 yard season.

He's getting clowned on twitter also for telling the media that "he always wanted to be a Raven since he was a little kid"
He was born in 1987 and the Ravens didn't come into existence until 1996.. lol

I mean 9 years old... that's considered a kid, right?

Who knows... he could have been a Ray Lewis fan... who was drafted in 96...

Or maybe he just wanted to be a fan of a brand new team...

Never know...

#Raiders have officially given Middle Linebacker NaVorro Bowman a contract offer. Told it's not as high as some other teams but the 2 year deal is incentive heavy and Bowman is leaning towards signing it unless some other team steps in in next 24 hrs.

With 13 free agents already signed and have 11 draft picks, we should see nearly half the 53-man roster turn over in the first year of Gruden Part 11.

Me neither. Assuming the injury is ok.

I think he was ahead of Carr in their rookie years.
