2:43 p.m.: A.J. Bouye left the Raiders without a deal, for now.
CB A.J. Bouye has left Las Vegas. Doesn't mean he can't come back, but no deal for first FA visitor. #Raiders— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) March 11, 2021
9:34 a.m.: The Kansas City Chiefs just dumped two tackles. They are both hurt, so they may not appeal to the Raiders.
And so now, on the same morning, the Chiefs’ longtime starting offensive tackles, Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz, both have been officially released.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 11, 2021
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.
With the cap set at $182.5M, the #Raiders have $31.3 million in cap room per Over The Cap. They include Gabe Jackson and his $9.6M being cut so it will be less if he stays on a reduced deal. The draft class will take $5.3 million.— Josh Dubow (@JoshDubowAP) March 10, 2021
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.
We have released G Richie Incognito and DB Lamarcus Joyner. pic.twitter.com/7fuZdP7BkG— Las Vegas Raiders (@Raiders) March 9, 2021
9:56 a.m.: The Raiders need a guard and Kyle Long — son of Howie — is coming back. We will see.
Three-time Pro Bowl OL Kyle Long is returning to the NFL. He is 315 lbs., healthy, happy, nasty, and shredded, and has signed with Jeff Nalley of Select Sports Group.— Macon Gunter (@macongunter) March 9, 2021
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.
LB Bud Dupree, Pittsburgh’s franchise player last year, has been informed that he will not be franchised again this year, per league source. Dupree is headed to free agency.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 9, 2021
2:01 p.m.: The Raiders signed exclusive rights free agents, safety Dallin Leavitt.
We have signed S Dallin Leavitt to a one-year contract. pic.twitter.com/bvMyZezHq7— Las Vegas Raiders (@Raiders) March 8, 2021
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.
10:35 a.m.: The Raiders are trying to keep one of their better free agents, according to The Athletic.
#Raiders are in talks with LB Nicholas Morrow to try and bring him back.— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) March 5, 2021
One of the few defensive players who played well last year.
And he echoed Nelson Agholor in questioning the team’s accountability. Raising the bar.
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.
Hearing Giants trying to move G Kevin Zeitler and Jags trying to move G Andrew Norwell but not likely, given their salary. Other teams anticipate them being released, when they would generate significant interest— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) March 5, 2021
3:14 p.m.: Here is a salary-cap update.
The NFL has finalized its club adjustments/carryover for the 2021 league year. The amount for each team is added to league wide salary cap and serves as each team's adjusted cap #.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 4, 2021
E.g.: if the cap is set at $180M, the Browns will have a league-high adjusted cap of $209,409,691. pic.twitter.com/m7Shr9eX01
* Los Angeles Chargers are actually $9,230,527— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 4, 2021
* Las Vegas is actually $7,727,074
11:03 a.m.: The Seahawks are reportedly answering phone calls about a Russell Wilson trade. Now, the question is, are the Raiders calling?
I was told the Seahawks are not “shopping” Russell Wilson but calls made from other teams inquiring have been answered. https://t.co/NjQAydY012— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) March 4, 2021
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.
Sources confirm:— Kyle P Barber (@BB_KylePBarber) March 3, 2021
Raiders LS Trent Sieg has re-signed with the Raiders.
The deal: 3-years, $3,422,500, with 925,000 guaranteed.
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.
Details on the 2-year deal for new #AZCardinals DE JJ Watt:— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 3, 2021
— $12M signing bonus
— $14.5M base value in Year 1
— $28M base over 2 years, max $31M
— $3M in incentives based on sacks
— 10 sacks in 2021 gets $1M in 2021 and a $1M escalator for 2022

1:13 p.m.: The Raiders made some minor roster moves.
We have waived LB Ukeme Eligwe and DE Jeremiah Valoaga and released DB D.J. Killings. pic.twitter.com/uj0syJB0sX— Las Vegas Raiders (@Raiders) March 1, 2021
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.
