Oakland Raider News: Rating The Oakland Raiders Off Season So Far

New, comments

As of March 18th the Oakland Raiders have excersised the Addition by Subtraction Model of success and I must say that it looks to be shaping up for a great draft.

I know that I am missing some moves, so add them to the thread and I'll fill them in.

Gone:

Justin Fargas (Overpaid), Gerard Warren (Overpaid), Greg Ellis (Old), Cornell Green (Played Out), Javon Walker (WAY overpaid)

Added:

Yamon Figurs (Upgrade over Russell/Reese/Holland on Kick Returns), Kemerion Wimbley (Youth and Speed)

Kept:

Richard Seymour (Necesary), Khalif Barnes (Upgrade over Green), Sea-Bass (Necesary)

From looking at that list, I'd have to say that we will add a DT, to replace Warren, with a high pick in the draft and other than that it has been pretty quiet, but, actually compared to the last two seasons of FA signings and trades, that is a good thing.

I would have loved it IF we stepped up and signed Dunta Robinson, but other than that there hasn't really been a FA or player that has been traded for that has made me think twice.

Good job Raiders, I'll give you a B for the off-season, so far.
