Gradkowski speaks on KNBR (3/9/2010)

"I haven’t officially signed with them yet. They offered a second round tender. So its still free agency going on, so there are other teams out there, but in my heart, I want to be in Oakland. I believe I’ll be in Oakland and I’ll like to be here for years to come. I just feel a good presence here, especially with the fan-base we have. It’s the best in football and fans that love their team. And we need to give them something to cheer for. So that’s what I’m looking forward to changing this year and going in and having a good season." Grad sounds like Cable in this interview - extremely cagey and vague.

Raiders unload Javon Walker, Greg Ellis

35

The worst contract in the history of free agency is no longer active. The Raiders finally cut Javon Walker Monday and dumped defensive end Greg Ellis while they were at it, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Walker was named the biggest free agent bust ever by the NFL Network, and we can't disagree. His contract was particularly egregious because it was obvious in 2007 Walker had nothing left physically. The guy was benched for Glenn Martinez in Denver. (I actually wrote a post at the time in my former life calling it the worst contract ever. Blind squirrels, nuts, and all that.) Oakland paid Walker $21 million over the last two years and got 15 catches in return. He may wind up in someone's camp this year, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he's played his last regular season snap. Ellis actually started his Raiders career well enough, but knee troubles slowed him down late in the season.

Sad to see Ellis go, I really liked him. Good riddance to Walker

Kevin Ross added to coaching staff

"Ross presumably takes the job vacated by Clancy Pendergast, who was hired briefly before leaving to take the defensive coordinator’s job at Cal.With the Chiefs, Ross was one of the NFL’s top man-to-man coverage corners _ a technique favored by the Raiders and owner Al Davis."- JMac

JaggerJaw broke the news about running back Justin Fargas and defensive tackle Gerard Warren possibly being released in the post below this. With those releases, the Raiders wouldn't have to pay them their due roster bonus.
