As the offseason began, the Raiders had 13 players who were headed for free agency. And at the start of the new league year March 9, they still had 13 players who became unrestricted free agents. In the tow months between the end of the 2016 season and the start of free agency. Since that time they have yet to re-sign any of them either.
Meanwhile 9 of those 13 players has signed with other teams. Here are those players with the deals they signed elsewhere:
Stacy McGee — Signed with Washington on 5-year, $25 million deal
Brynden Trawick — Signed with Titans 2-year deal worth max $6.85 million deal
Just four of the Raiders’ free agents remain. They are:
LS Jon Condo
QB Matt McGloin
LB Perry Riley Jr
TE Mychal Rivera
Of those four remaining unsigned free agents, Jon Condo and Perry Riley Jr are the most likely to return.
Here are their contract numbers:
These signings leave the Raiders with $38 million in remaining salary cap space according to Overthecap.com. That’s fifth most in the league. Though the salaries of Jared Cook and EJ Manuel haven’t figured into that. They began with over $43 million.
Update: Jared Cook’s cap number for 2017 is $5 million, bringing the Raiders’ cap space to an estimated $33 million., still fifth most in the NFL.
The Raiders have yet to add a player on defense. They hosted linebacker Zach Brown last week, but he left without agreeing to a contract. Reported interest in Dontari Poe never resulted in a visit and he has since signed with the Falcons.
