ESPN Reporter John Clayton reported that the Raiders are 17.1 Million over the cap. Now keep in mind this was reported before the wimbley deal. So this puts us around 7 Million over the cap now. So we have more contracts to restructure. Whatever it takes to bring back Zack and sign anyother help avaliable. According to PFT, there are 11 teams with 20 Million or more UNDER the cap. Bengals at the top of the list(or bottom?) at 40 Million under. This gets relevent with the Seahawks who have around 20 Million in cap space left. So they do have the money to fuel a beer run(a Miller Hiest). But what does work in our favor, is that the mininum cap spending doesnt take affect until the 2013 league year. So teams wont be penalized for saving money now. So even though the Seahawks have the ammo, I dont believe they're ready to unload a full clip. So theirs plenty of hope the Zack Attack will continue its act for the Greatest Show on Dirt(Borrowed from someone on here, I am not the sole inventer of it). Even ask Greg Papa, the game day voice and employee of the Raiders. On his radio show this morning he said "Davis didn't just give Wimbley $29 million to lose Zach Miller to Tom Cable" Well put Mr.Papa. He also went on to guess he could be signed by the end of the day. That shot of koolaide was a little strong for me, I would guess he is signed and under the cap by thursday.
As a last side note, Compass and the Raiders have teamed up again. They are doing 2 tickets for the Price of one special for the Jets and Patriots game. Suites are excluded, but who wants to be up there anyways? So if anyone is interested, check it out, sounds like a great way to start the season and sell out the first 2 home games. #RaiderNation
