March 11

2:43 p.m.: A.J. Bouye left the Raiders without a deal, for now.

9:34 a.m.: The Kansas City Chiefs just dumped two tackles. They are both hurt, so they may not appeal to the Raiders.


March 10

11:42 a.m.: As expected, the Raiders did not receive any 2021 comp draft picks. They signed too many players in 2020.

9:14 a.m.: The NFL salary cap is set at $182.5 million and the Raiders should have a decent amount of spend, but, of course, they had to shed a lot of players.


March 9

2:21 p.m.: The Raiders officially released Lamarcus Joyner and Richie Incognito. Still no word on Gabe Jackson, so maybe the Raiders will try to redo his deal.

9:56 a.m.: The Raiders need a guard and Kyle Long — son of Howie — is coming back. We will see.

8:48 a.m.: Pittsburgh Steelers’ pass-rusher Bud Dupree is hitting the open market. He would be a nice fit in Gus Bradley’s system.


March 8

2:01 p.m.: The Raiders signed exclusive rights free agents, safety Dallin Leavitt.

10:33 a.m.: The Seattle Seahawks are releasing pass-rusher Carlos Dunlap. He was reportedly interested in joining the Raiders last season because of his ties to former defensive coordinator Paul Guenther. Perhaps he will still have interest.


March 5

10:35 a.m.: The Raiders are trying to keep one of their better free agents, according to The Athletic.

9:40 a.m.: There may be some veteran guards available if the Raiders are interested in the post-Gabe Jackson world. Also, with these vets soon to hit the market, I bet Jackson hopes he is officially cut soon, so he can get a jump on the open market.


March 4

3:14 p.m.: Here is a salary-cap update.

11:03 a.m.: The Seahawks are reportedly answering phone calls about a Russell Wilson trade. Now, the question is, are the Raiders calling?


March 3

10:44 a.m.: The Raiders have signed long snapper Trent Sieg to a three-year contract extension; He was a restricted free agent. He has done a good job and deserved the new deal.

9:12 a.m.: The J.J. Watt numbers are official with the Arizona Cardinals and the contract is less than reported. But it’s still too big for the Raiders to get involved, in my opinion.


March 2

9:19 a.m.: Pittsburgh Steelers’ running back James Conner is not expected back. He could be a nice backup running back option for the Raiders.


March 1

1:13 p.m.: The Raiders made some minor roster moves.

11:02 a.m.: Alex Smith will hit the open market. Maybe the Raiders will consider him as a backup to Derek Carr. It could fit.
