DL Tank Carradine leaves Oakland without deal

NFL: Tennessee Titans at San Francisco 49ers Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

According to Ian Rapoport, who is always right, former 49ers defensive end Tank Carradine came to Oakland and left without signing a contract.

The Raiders have been on somewhat of a spending spree today, having signed WR Jordy Nelson, FB Keith Smith, RB Doug Martin, S Marcus Gilchrist and LB Tahir Whitehead. It’s possible Carradine’s contract demands were too much to stomach for the Raiders, or it’s possible that he just wants to see what the Seahawks have to offer.

Either way, if the Raiders really want a player, he usually doesn’t leave the HQ building without a contract so perhaps the interest wasn’t strong. The Seahawks have yet to do much in free agency, though they are rumored to be heavily interested in DT Ndamukong Suh. Seattle has almost $20 million in cap space, so they can make moves if they want to, and Carradine could be one of them.
