Raiders cut QB Wilson, a 4th round pick the staff considers a bust...

To lose a QB selected in the fourth round shows us two things. 1. McKenzie was wrong about Wilson's skill set, (In College after his junior year Wilson was considered a possible top 10 pick). 2. Losing a 4th round pick because the guy was so bad it was felt he couldn't even be developed hurts the Raiders as a team because we just don't have draft picks to waste. The Raiders are rebuilding and I know it is probably better to cut your losses sooner than later, after all, it is better to not keep Wilson around if it is clear he is not a NFL caliber QB. Which is a sign they did not get political about it and are looking out for the well-being of the team. Some GM's and staff keep certain drafted players so they don't look like they were wrong, happens all the time. So this cut is a great sign for the teams leadership. My hopes are that the Raiders staff can make decisions during the draft that help the long term future of the team. Losing a 4th round pick is a loss, however, in the NFL it takes courage for the staff to cut a 4th round draft pick and keep an undrafted rookie F/A in that position. Klewe was cut as well. Hopefully we can make some roster improvements adding other released players..
