Qualities Raiders should consider in their search for an edge rusher | Silver and Black Pride

As Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has publicly stated, pass rushers don’t grow on trees. Every guy with burst and a bend isn’t able to win purely off athleticism in the NFL. The other thing to remember about drafting pass rushing edge players is the fact that they often require at minimum 2-3 years to hit their full potential.

What condition Raiders position is in pre-free agency 2019: Quarterback | Silver and Black Pride

The judgment of Carr’s season depends on who you ask. Those who would defend him would point to his surpassing 4000 yards for the first time in his career and his 10-game streak without an interception. They would also point to the shoddy offensive line that contributed to him getting sacked 51 times. They will point to his 2016 season as proof that he is capable of making big time plays.

Should the Raiders consider overpaying for DE Demarcus Lawrence? | Raiders Wire

One potential option for the Raiders is Cowboys’ defensive end, Demarcus Lawrence.

Recent Raiders DE Damontre Moore leads AAF opening weekend with 9 QB pressures | Silver and Black Pride

He keeps this up and he may find himself back in Silver & Black once the AAF season is done. Lord knows they can use the pass rush. They had a pathetic NFL low 13 sacks all last season, so they have no business turning their nose up at this kind of production, even if it is against D-league type competition.

Steve Spagnuolo is giving many Chiefs fans cause for optimism | Arrowhead Pride

Spagnuolo’s record as a defensive coordinator has been inconsistent — sometimes very good and sometimes very bad. But fans who have been frustrated during Bob Sutton’s tenure as Chiefs defensive coordinator can find lots of cause for optimism with Spagnuolo now at the helm.

Broncos have plenty of needs to fill in free agency | ESPN.com

The Broncos have about $35.5 million worth of salary cap space if you take into account their expected draft pool and “dead money” (about $8 million in salary-cap charges for players no longer on the roster).

Potential Broncos free agent target: Linebacker, C.J. Mosley | Mile High Report

The inside linebacker is an important piece to Vic Fangio’s defenses. In San Francisco, he had Patrick Willis and Navarro Bowman in the middle of his defense and in Chicago he had the 8th overall pick Roquan Smith and former Bronco Danny Trevathan in the middle of that defense. Both were highly ranked units that featured the inside linebacker and I would imagine he wants to do the same in Denver.
