Unrestricted Free Agents : More to Buy < > Less to Spend

When viewed from this perspective the RAIDERS have a young & very talented FUTURE!

Offense

Terrelle Pryor*

Darren Mcfadden

Jacoby Ford*

Denarius  Moore*

Chaz "Glass" Schillens

Michael Bush

Darius Heyward-Bey* (honorable mention)

Taiwan Jones* (honorable mention)

Bruce Campbell* (honorable mention)

 

Defense

Rolando McClain*

Lamar Houston*

Matt Shauneessy*

Michael Huff

Stanford Routt

Mike Mitchell* (honorable mention)

 

( * ) Rookies & 2nd to 3rd  yr. players with enough talent & potential to become very good (can you say PRO BOWLer ?)

 

Groves is not the answer at OLB,  Goethel is out for the entire season, Kirk signed with Buffalo,  now it seems Lofa is the next to only best option available (maybe) but for how long?

Below is a list of unrestricted free agents (under the radar of most) who i think could be worth a call before the season opener against the Broncos.

08' Draft Analysis: One of the top deep coverage cornerbacks in college football, King has also demonstrated outstanding skills performing on offense as a split end and on special teams as a gunner and returner. He has also shown the same accomplishments in the classroom, having graduated in December 2007 with a 3.0 grade point average, earning Dean's List and Academic All-Big Ten Conference accolades.

After playing on offense and defense as a true freshman, he went on to start every game at right cornerback the last two seasons. During that time, he deflected 21 passes and intercepted three others. After a stellar performance at the 2008 NFL Combine, King proved that athletically, he is more than ready to take on the daunting task of playing professional football at the young age of 20.

Playing for Penn State seemed to be a natural thing to do for King, whose step-father, Terry Smith, played as a wide receiver for head coach Joe Paterno and the Nittany Lions for 1988-91. Smith would coach King during his playing days at Gateway High School. The youngster announced on the night of Nov. 15, 2004 that he would enroll at Penn State, arriving on campus in January 2005.

Shortly thereafter, King began contacting other premier players across the nation who were considering Penn State, asking them to join him to help PSU win Big Ten Conference and national championships. Within days of King's announcement, other top prep players began giving Paterno their commitments, including Derrick Williams, the nation's top-rated player. Before he finished "campaigning," King and fellow Gateway High tight end Jon Ditto were joined by 13 other prep prospects from Western Pennsylvania to wear a Nittany Lions uniform.
