We need at LB help I want Kenny Rowe to be a Raider!

Rowe was always around the ball somehow he wasn't drafted overshadowed by the hair of the lesser Matthews brother. There's not a lot of guys out there right now looks like there's a few. Do we sign now or wait for cut down.

There isn't much sex appeal in the names although the always mentioned Morrison, Tatupu and Tully Banta-Cain are available. Beyond that it just looks like slim pickings.

Unsigned Linebackers according to WaltersFootball.com

ILB

Lofa Tatupu, ILB, Seahawks. Age: 28.
Lofa Tatupu is no longer the elite inside linebacker he once was. Tatupu is coming off two knee surgeries and was already somewhat of a liability in coverage. Perhaps he can recover and improve his play a bit, but it's doubtful that he'll ever be a Pro Bowl-caliber athlete again.

 Kirk Morrison, ILB, Jaguars. Age: 29. Signed a one year deal with the Bills
Kirk Morrison is a decent middle linebacker who thrives in run support. He's not terrible in coverage, but could be better in that department.

Jameel McClain (ERFA), ILB, Ravens. Age: 26.   Somebody said he signed
Jameel McClain is serviceable as Baltimore's two-down inside linebacker next to Ray Lewis, but can be upgraded
.

Kevin Bentley, ILB, Texans. Age: 31.
Kevin Bentley did a decent job filling in for DeMeco Ryans in the second half of the season. He could be brought back as a reserve 3-4 inside linebacker.

Gerald Hayes, ILB, Cardinals. Age: 30.

Marvin Mitchell, ILB, Saints. Age: 26.

Dannell Ellerbe (ERFA), ILB, Ravens. Age: 25.

Tavares Gooden (RFA), ILB, Ravens. Age: 26.

Brandon Chillar, ILB, Packers. Age: 28.

OLB

Tully Banta-Cain, DE/OLB, Patriots. Age: 31.
Tully Banta-Cain has 15 sacks in the past two years, but at 31, he's a declining rush linebacker who'll need a very good pass rusher across from him to be effective going forward. He's still good in run support.

Pisa Tinoisamoa, OLB, Bears. Age: 30.
Pisa Tinoisamoa missed some time with a knee scope, but otherwise had a pretty solid year as Chicago's two-down strongside linebacker

Jamar Williams, OLB, Panthers. Age: 27.

Julian Peterson, OLB, Lions. Age: 33.

Landon Johnson, OLB, Lions. Age: 30.

Keith Ellison, OLB, Bills. Age: 27.

Jordon Dizon, OLB, Lions. Age: 25.

Ashlee Palmer, OLB, Lions. Age: 25.
