"Coach Wants to See You...And Bring Your Playbook"
Twenty-two players per team and 704 overall will get that call by 3:00 p.m. Pacific today, thus for the moment ending their employment in the NFL.
The Raiders and the rest of the 31 other NFL teams face their most critical roster decisions of the year this weekend. There will be a lot of hyper-activity this weekend as roster movements around the NFL will include waiver wire claims, trades and practice-squad additions. But the decisions that will shape each team's roster, and subsequently, their season, are now in the process of being made.
So rather than having multiple of fanposts that talk about today's NFL roster movements, we will use this thread for all discussion on not just the Raiders roster moves, but the rest of the NFL as well. Especially since the Raiders are expected to be active this weekend in finalizing their 53 man roster and hope to find a defensive tackle, a decent backup corner and a starting right tackle either by trade or waiver claim.
As you find links and other info about the NFL and Raiders roster activity, post them below. I'll do my best to keep this post updated with the news as it comes in.
On a final note: Tom Cable is expected to hold a press conference at 4:00 p.m. today after all of the roster moves are in.
