With tomorrow being June 1st and the Raiders about to receive $8 million in relief from Michael Huff's June 1st cut designation, it is a good time to do a ‘Best free agents available' update. Let's starts with the offense.
My take: Not much to see here. It would take an injury to Raiders current group of QB's to prompt interest here.
Chris "Beanie" Wells
My take: Some nice options among the running backs. All seem to be available due in large part to injuries.
My take: Some talent here but I wouldn't expect any of them to find work soon.
My take: Little reason any of these receivers shouldn't find a team. Most of them very soon.
Kellen Winslow Jr
My take: The top four names here were once the best in the game. Age has caught up to them (Well, attitude with Winslow Jr) but the game hasn't passed them by.
Eric Winston (RT)
Jammal Brown (RT)
Winston Justice (RT)
Demetress Bell (LT)
Sean Locklear (RT/LT)
Frank Omiyale (RT/LT/G)
My take: No football reason whatsoever why Eric Winston is not on a team. He is a solid number one right tackle. I expect the others will be on a team soon as well.
Dan Koppen (C)
My take: Brandon Moore is good but he is 33 and is pricing himself out of a job right now. Overall age is the major factor with most of these guards. They are in many team's back pockets as reliable plug and play replacements.
