Woodley was a poor signing. I thought he could rebound to his former pro bowl level of play but clearly he was not even close to even being a good choice for a starter.

MJD, Woodley and Swab for Suh = a much better Oakland Raider team.    Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

With the Schaub release, we open up another 5M in cap space...  Release Roach and that frees up another 2M...  We could honestly have close to 80 million to spend, that is unheard of...

Giving Suh what he wants will eat up about 22M of that, (Watt is counting 21M against their cap) leaving us with about 55 million left to spend, still 2nd in cap space, behind the Jags (68M) and ahead of the Jets (53M).

I don't think he leaves the building without being signed.  One thing he gets from coming here that a few teams can't give him, is the guarantee that he will be the face of the franchise, no matter who we draft or sign...  IMO, a player like him would love to be the face of a franchise like the Raiders, known for being bullies and badasses...  It's only right...

First off, let's get something straight - Suh is not a Haynesworth redux.

There were all kinds of red flags with that guy. Suh is better and younger. His number one problem is that he's a head case.

We used to have a team full of head cases and we loved it. Suh is a beast and wrecks opposing game plans. He consistently draws double teams and would free up Mack to make even more plays IMO.

I'm not nearly optimistic enough to think he'd actually sign here. But RM MUST try. We should attempt to get him AND Knighton. Putting those two on the field with Mack would instantly lend our defense some serious credibility.



To say Suh has no red flags is funny considering he's probably one more personal foul from a suspension.

 Don't need both Suh and Knighton..
If Suh can come in and be what he's been since coming into the league I'm all for it. I'm just saying we need to be cautious before breaking the bank on Moss, Err I mean, deangelo hall, whoops I mean Suh.. Wink



I didn't say he had NO red flags...I said he's a head case. I also said that we Raider fans used to embrace those types.

So why not Suh?

Yep...we might get burned. But we might get a helluva player. And I think we DO need them both because frankly, we have the money and zero depth right now. TK could play the one like he did for Denver and Suh would play the three.

Al would be drooling over the prospect of signing Suh. Hell, he'd sell his first born to sign him (not a bad idea, by the way  Grin).

If any player in the league fit the old time Raider mold, it's Suh. Big, strong, fast and with a nasty streak. His red flags are all because of being over aggressive. Not because he smoked some weed, got a DUI or beat his wife. His red flags are the sort of thing that coaches looked for in players.

That said, I don't know that Reggie has the stones to sign him. I think Reggie looks at that $57 million and thinks he can sign 20 guys with that money. He's not going to use up a quarter to a third of it on one guy.


I disagree. I think Reggie's desperate enough to do it. I just don't think that Suh will see the Raiders as a team worth waiting for to reach contention. We're too far away. Unless of course his comments about playing for the highest bidder are for real. Then all RM has to do is make the best offer and pitch.

Adding Suh would be a big step. If we could somehow land him, it might remove the stigma of playing in Oakland,  making it more likely that other key free agents would follow suit.

If he DOES come to Oakland first, MD can't let him leave without signing a deal.

?The focus is on ??Oakland after the Raiders nudged ahead of Jacksonville ($68.5 million) as the league leader in cap room ?at almost $70 million after a flurry of moves Thursday and Maurice Jones-Drew’s retirement.

??The Jets are ?third at $53.3 million and can boost that to $61 million if they release wide receiver Percy Harvin?, but it sounds as if Gang Green — and everyone else in the league, for that matter — will have to keep one eye peeled on the Raiders.

First-year Oakland coach Jack Del Rio practically cut a commercial for free agents when asked at the scouting combine about the Raiders’ plans for the veteran market.

“It’s important that the prospective [free-agent] players out there understand that things have changed,” Del Rio said. “Our practice fields are being redone. Our weight room is being expanded. We have a steam room going in. There is a freshness going on.

So, did he sign with somebody? Is Wyoming the winner?

Unfortunately for us, it was a season too late.
