Raiders Organization Gets A Much Needed Breath of Fresh Air

...The Oakland Raiders Organization, thanks to the handiwork of Reggie McKenzie, is breathing again. After 10 years of stagnation, over-bloated win-NOW contracts, lack of cohesion, and a turnstile of head coaches out of their league, the team is now not only moving in the right direction but is actually ....well.....moving again.

Just take a look at what McKenzie has done to get the Raiders financial house in order, of which the true benefits will be felt by 2014. My below salary reductions per player will reflect the "freed" money for the Raiders that they will be able to spend in free agency beginning in February of next year. (roughly)

-Richard Seymour. At age 34 could barely practice, let alone play a game last year. It was evident to me that he never really wanted to be a Raider and cared little for the team. His salary shaves 14 million from Oakland's 2014 cap.

-Rolando McClain. No justifications required for cutting him. It is unfortunate that when a player has off the field issues, they also just plain suck. During games it appeared to me as though he was jogging. And let us not begin to discuss his inability to drop back in pass coverage. His saving will be 8.45 million in 2014 cap space.

-Michael Huff. We all liked Huffy. He was a cool cat, and I believe he actually cared for the Raiders, unlike the above two. But all sentiments aside, Huff never lived up to the hype. I would put Huff in the category of a Giordano, average. His savings will be 2.3 million off the 2014 cap.

-Shane Lechler. Our biggest loss. Happy he gets to go back home though to Texas. Saves 2.4 Million off the 2014 cap.

-Carson Palmer. Good NFL QB, not great, and definitely not worth the money. We are in rebuild mode, and he did not want to be here. bye. Saves 16 million off the 2014 cap.

These above savings amounts to almost 44 million dollars in free cap space for 2014, and puts the Raiders back into financial health. The Organization should have plenty of money and draft picks in 2014. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Go RAIDERS!!
