    what is the deadline to get a compensation pick for howard or morrison if they leave? do we get the pick this year or next?

  • http://www.blogcdn.com/www.fanhouse.com/media/2008/04/desmond-howard-425-sm.jpg Bo Schembechler Jackson

    Reason Being? We haven’t had a real NT or any decent run clogging DT’s since 2002 (Chuck Bresnahan)

    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    What about Parrella in 03? Or Parrella AND Washington in 04? Ted was there in 05 too.

  • RaiderRockstar

    what happens with morrison and howard, if no one offers them a contract?

    ***

    NE: then they’ll have to sign the tender from Oakland.

    at that point they become our property again and we could keep or trade them!

    what happens with morrison and howard, if no one offers them a contract? with wembley being slated to play olb and having scott, i’m guessing we only have room for one of the two. personally i like howard better.

    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    Neither is a MLB, but Howard is better in coverage, which is when he would be used most.

    Or cut them. Tenders aren’t usually guaranteed.

    i agree, i dont think morrison was all that good. he amassed good tackling numbers, but when your defense is on the filed for 75% of the game, someone is going to make tackles. i would not be hurt to see him go. he takes very poor angles and misses a lot of tackles. also, howard when allowed to run blitz would make a few plays in the backfield.

  • RaiderRockstar

    BSJ: Rob Ryan started in 2004

    Parrella started ZERO games in ’04. Only started 5 games (due to injury) in 2003

    and as I stated above, Ted Washington was a washed up scrub by the time he signed here

    ++++++++++

    The deadline for those players to sign an offer sheet is April 15, 2010. If they are signed by another team we get that teams pick in this year’s draft.

  • new englandraider

    hey bsj, no trade dmac for ted washington posts? lol

    Rumors that Larry Ellison will buy GS, and Jerry West will run them. Wow!!!!!!

    +++++++++++++++++++++++

    Great!!!! Jerry West will then trade all your decent players to the Lakers for expiring contracts!

  • new englandraider

    dakota
    thanks bro. was not sure how that worked. so, if they don’t sign with another team by 4-15, does that mean they can no longer sign with another team, or does it just mean we dont get the pick(s) in this years draft?

  • RaiderRockstar

    Tenders aren’t usually guaranteed.

    ***

    they aren’t?

    The Browns did give second-round tenders, a guaranteed US$1.75 million salary for next season

    Titans TE Bo Scaife signed his one-year guaranteed tender for $4908200. @Adam_Schefter

    It means they cannot sign with another team. If they don’t sign their tender with us, they are just SOL. They will re-sign with their current teams because they have no onther choice.

  • new englandraider

    i have a friend who went to boston college on a volleyball scholarship. he tells me how ricky brown was a dominant mlb. as i have said before, i have no interest in college sports, but allegedly this guy was a beast. i have not seen much of anything from this guy, so why do we keep him?

  • RaiderRockstar

    NE: Ricky Brown is a good football player

    but like Oren O’Neal & Arman Shields, he just can’t shake the injury bug!

  • http://media-2.web.britannica.com/eb-media/63/60563-004-52A399D4.jpg Dakota

    Rockstar,

    I am pretty sure the tendered contracts are only guaranteed if the player makes the final 53 man roster next season.

  • new englandraider

    dakota
    thx. i think i got ya. so if they do not sign with another team by 4-15, they are ours? i would not mind seeing kirk give olb a shot. he needs to lose a few lbs though.

  • Nnamdi21

    I wonder if Kyle Wilson falls to us in the 2nd?

  • RaiderRockstar

    I am pretty sure the tendered contracts are only guaranteed if the player makes the final 53 man roster next season.

    Agreed.

    N21: if I were your mother I would wash your mouth out with soap!

  • new englandraider

    rock
    i cant agree or disagree with the ricky brown thing. you’re right, the guy is seemingly always hurt. at times i have seen him completely whiff on tackles. even the play in which he got hurt, was a screen pass, and he was right there in position to make the tackle, and missed. i don’t think we’ve seen enough of the guy being healthy to debate whether or not he is any good.

    Thus they can be cut, as I noted.

    Trade DMAC for Jerry West!

  • new englandraider

    if no team signs howard and kirk, then i don’t see us taking a lb in the first round. maybe if spikes is there in the 3rd, you might think we’d have to take him.

  • RaiderRockstar

    NE: Ricky Brown only played in 7 games in 2008 & 5 games in 2009

    averages over 5 tackles per game when he does play though (67 tackles and 2 forced fumbles in his last 12 games)

  • NoMoreFargas

    Poor Jerry West to have at one time run the Greatest Franchise to the garbage Dubs, oh well will always love Mr. Laker.
    If somebody wants Clausen that bad then trade the 8# I would love not to have another 1 rd bust and more later round picks.

    GO RAIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Trade DMAC for Jerry West!

    ***

    are you Mike Bush’s administrative assistant?

  • NoMoreFargas

    BSJ I bet Mr. Laker could break more tackles than Dmac!

  • new englandraider

    rockstar
    wow, i wouldn’t have thought he had that many tackles. i’m guessing a few have been on st’s.

  • new englandraider

    279. lol. i was thinking the same thing. hopefully dmac has a healthy and productive year.

  • HairyBush

    Ahh, who could ever forget the legendary Arman Sheilds.
    He works down the street from me at the jiffy lube. He does use his Raider speed in an efficent manner when changing my oil. Good pick!

  • RaiderRockstar

    i wouldn’t have thought he had that many tackles. i’m guessing a few have been on st’s.

    ***

    you’re probably right. I know he’s said to be a solid ST contributor

    2008 – groin
    2009 – ankle

    Can he really challenge to start at MLB being this brittle? He weighs 235 lbs soaking wet

  • HairyBush

    RR-it’s easy to amass that amount of tackles if your Ricky Brown. (being as fresh as he is, only playing a fraction of a season.)

  • RaiderRockstar

    LOL @ HB!

    what about Carlos Francis?

  • HairyBush

    It’s the same principal as Langston finishing the season on a decent note.

  • HairyBush

    Don’t get me started on Francis!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Patriots get 4 compensatory picks

    ***

    anybody surprised?

  • HairyBush

    Bellichek is sleeping with Goodell.-you didn’t hear that from me :)

    “what happens with morrison and howard, if no one offers them a contract?”
    ——————————————————-

    Yeah, why isn’t ANYONE offering these guys a contract if they’re so frickin great? You know why…it’s because THEY SUCK!!! I’ve been saying that consistently (I know nobody cares blah, blah, blah), but the fact remains. NOBODY WANTS THEM. At least NOBODY wants to pay them, because gee whiz, other teams in the NFL are smart and kinda know what they are doing, but to the Raiders “oh, we gotta have these guys, after all we need to sign everybody that brought us 5 and freakin’ 11 last year…”

    I could care less how these two overpaid, can’t get in the right gap to save their lives, celebrate like they just won the Superbowl when they actually do their jobs and tackle somebody, losers, feel about their abilities, but guess what? The league sees you fopr what you both are; emergency backups at best. VBut the Raiders…oh no…these guys are great…

    This is why we’ll end up with double digit losses again; refusing to address the fact that the current team that gave you 5-11 will give you guess what? 5-11 (if we’re lucky).

  • new englandraider

    what about johnnie morant? he and andrew walter would put up some nice preseason stats

  • HairyBush

    I wonder if Walter is still trying to weasel his way back into the league after the pats dumped him.

  • HairyBush

    I want me some Ethan Horton Holla!!!!!!!!!!

  • maddenraiderfan

    Bring back Frantz Joseph to play MLB.

  • new englandraider

    ethan horton. lol. what ever happened to doug jolley. we traded him to the jets, and i havent heard of him since

  • HairyBush

    Jolley fell off the face of the earth, I remember We actually got decent compensation from the Jets on that deal.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Hue Jackson’s job isn’t to fix JaMarcus. It’s to score points. Paul Hackett will still do all the QB work this offseason. Wasn’t there a rumor out that Hackett & Tollner didn’t win any points with Al Davis because of their blunt non-favorable assessments of JaMarcus?

    Cable said we would have been a playoff team without him.

    Cable + Hackett + Tollner + Bruce + Charlie all returning spells bench for JaMarcus unless babysitter/fitness coach Eddie Anderson works a JaMiracle

    even today Cable says “it’s on him”

    nobody is making excuses except for a handful of Raider fans. Interesting

  • HairyBush

    Quick what # was Ethan Horton, 1st one gets a prize.
    you get 30 seconds

  • RaiderRockstar

    Bring back Frantz Joseph to play MLB.

    ***

    LOL. Where is Raider O?

    “Frantz is the next Rey Lewis”

  • HairyBush

    Here’s to praying for a “jamiracle”
