Raiders acknowledge Wimbley acquisition

The Raiders announced the signing of the Kamerion Wimbley trade on their Web site Sunday without giving the compensation.

Beat writer Steve Corkran is reporting the Raiders sent the Browns a third-round draft pick obtained in the Derrick Burgess trade with New England. It’s worth noting the Raiders could get a third-round pick if Kirk Morrison signs an offer sheet with another team.

Wimbley’s agent, reached by e-mail, said, “Kamerion is very accepting of the Browns decision and he is looking forward to working with coach Cable. There were no hard feelings and he wishes the Browns the best.”

The Raiders company line on the Wimbley trade is they’ve got a fourth first-round draft pick on their defensive unit, joining Nnamdi Asomugha, Richard Seymour and Michael Huff.

The downside is the mission statement of the 2010 Raiders defense is to stop the run, and Wimbley comes from a Cleveland defense that finished just one spot ahead of Oakland in rushing defense (28th). The Browns gave up 4.6 yards per carry to Oakland’s 4.5.

Wimbley is due to make $1,065,000 this season, and Adam Caplan of Scout.com, the first to break the story, reports the contract voids after this season but says “there’s an up to $7.765 million buyback for 2011 based on statistical achievement from previous seasons.”

    I for one love the move, even though I never heard of the guy before yesterday,..but brian called me, told me its a great move, as long as we get a hardcore nose tackle soon, trade or draft,…but brian likes the guy…good enough for me…by the way I just read poor old MR yesterday after I left, was making fun of a person going to spring training,..hmmm,..well, when I was in spring training havin a blast with the Giants and A`s, MR was in here all weekend complaining about the state of the Raiders,…I guess he feels thats an enjoyable weekend,..that pretty much sums up the life of MR,..hope he cheers up soon.

    We certainly did, had and have for years.

    We run it in red zone packages.

    I certainly won’t miss Big Gerard Warren dropping into coverage on those zone blitzes.

    you’re thinking of a Rob Ryan defense in Oakland, not a John Marshall defense. sorry bro. not buying it

    Marshall also pitched the prevent defense Ryan & Davis loved after it cost us the Week 1 game against SD.

    Nnam… I seriously dont recall ever seeing the Raiders in a 3-4. I havent watched as closely over the last few years admittedly, because I cant get DirectTv at my home.

  • RaiderRockstar

    since we’ve added Wimbley, does that mean we’ll pass on Derrick Morgan or JPP now?

  • Norco Bob

    Had directv for a couple years,…it sucks.

    Hey, if the other team’s fan base is pissed about the Wimbley trade, then I am happy about it…

    Cleveland Browns won’t even get a high No. 3 for Kamerion Wimbley

    CLEVELAND — Upon further review, the Browns’ trade of linebacker Kamerion Wimbley to Oakland is worse than originally thought.

    According to reports, the Raiders apparently will send the Browns the lower of their two picks in the third round for Wimbley, a No. 1 pick in 2006.

    The Raiders obtained a third-round pick from New England — No. 86 overall — last year in exchange for defensive lineman Richard Seymour. That’s the pick coming to the Browns instead of Oakland’s own third-round pick, No. 70 overall.

    The Browns have not confirmed the trade.

    Browns President Mike Holmgren is expected to address the media later this afternoon.

    on a positive note:

    I don’t think Al Davis could have drafted a pass rush specialist better than Wimbley at 86th overall in the draft …

    On a more positive not… at least we arent paying Jake Delhomme 7mil

    ====================

    Not as a base for sure, but yes, we do and have run the 3-4 aside from Ryan’s failed attempt to make Sapp a 3-4 DE.
