Cartwright done, Henderson close

The Raiders’ flurry of activity before the end of the league year Thursday continued as they agreed to terms with special teams standout and backup running back Rock Cartwright and were nearing an agreement with defensive tackle John Henderson.

Cartwright’s signing was confirmed by a team source. He said on his Twitter page Wednesday he was returning to the Bay Area and to “re-sign with the silver and black. Henderson’s agreement was intitially reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter as a two-year, $4 million deal.

Correction to an earlier post _ the Raiders confirmed Kamerion Wimbley’s status as the franchise player, but have not confirmed the new riches bestowed upon cornerback Stanford Routt. The Raiders made note in their release about the buyback in Wimbley’s contract disallowed by the league.

However, an e-mail was sent out by Raiders public relations early in the day showing how Routt stacked up in terms of completion percentage in an ESPN blog which ran some time ago. No explanation, given, just under the heading of “FYI.”

If they choose, the Raiders could seek to fight the league ruling, but the moment Wimbley signs the tender, he is guaranteed the reported $10.1 million. And protesting the ruling would only serve to unnecessarily alienate Wimbley.

The best course of action for both parties is a longterm deal which Wimbley’s agent Joe Linta said has been in the works in recent days.

    Did Carimi play RT in college??

    If so, draft him and play him immediately at RT!!!

    Without our in-house O-line guru anymore, enough of this moving guys around business.

  • General Bauce

    Jhill i understand ur anger……Lakers getting old, kings may be in anahiem, dodgers not worth much,and chargers may be in LA. I’d be pissed too

  • General Bauce

    Jhill boston may not get past east finals i totAlly agree….but to assume no one in east can beat LA is pure insanity

  • General Bauce

    VR….what ya think about ncca’s this season

  • Just Fire Baby

    I think I am way off my game.

    Just hope Mizzou doesn’t get a #5 seed. 12′s win those games at over 40% of the time.

    BYU and SDSU are the only guys on the whole West Coast who can maybe make the elite 8 (AZ is a fraud).

    And Nolan Smith of Duke would make a great Warrior.

    That’s about all I got.

  • J Hill

    Toughest team the Lakers could face in the playoffs is OKC. They get past them, downhill from there. Bynum gets injured, things change.

  • General Bauce

    Who’s going to gaurd him on Dallas’ team?

    Chandler won’t be able to play Bynum and provide that help defense.

    Kidd is not going to hit career highs in 3s 4 games outta 7.

    Lakers will beat Dallas in 5.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Ur reeeching!

    speaking of reaching, what combine freak will Al Davis develop a man crush on this week?

  • General Bauce

    Dmac…..i hope we beat atl 2nite cuz next 7 is a east road trip

  • hwnrdr

    Yeah, haven’t been to Jack London in a while! Does sound really good though!
    Rockstar…I know, I can’t really eat too much of that these days, but…

  • J Hill

    Ok, B.

    It’ll be an exciting 4 game sweep. All the games will be won at the buzzer or in OT.

    As long as he controls himself until the 4th rd again the year, it could be whoever he wants.

    If we can get another Jacoby Ford in rd 4, I’m all for it.

  • General Bauce

    Lol jhill….who gonna guard dirk for LA? exactly….who plays pg for lakers agaisnt kidd and company? Chandler plays excellent defense bruh. Kidd will continue to bang 3 pt shots……….lakers in 7

  • hwnrdr

    to note: I am a Lakers fan also…been one since ’79 when they drafted Magic! However, they will get a chnace to defend the title, but it’s going to be much harder! Also, if they win or lose…they’ll always be around! Kobe’s getting older, but…never count him out!

  • RaiderRockstar

    I hate Jason Kidd almost as much as Kobe Bryant …

  • General Bauce

    I doubt warriors gonna pass up memphis now that they got battier

  • J Hill

    It’s going to be interesting to see who we pick in rd 2 and 3 this year. Say what you want about WHO was picked the past few years, but there is no arguing the POSITION picked was one of need.

    OL was CLEARLY an area of weakness last year.

    HAS to be our first pick in the draft this year.

  • General Bauce

    Jason Kidd<—–from Oakland….hall of famer multiple all star…..whats there to hate

  • DMAC

    J Kidd = Baller

  • DMAC

    Still putting in work in the league.

  • General Bauce

    Its friday! i wonder where will i be getting kicked out of tonite?

  • J Hill

    Who’s Dirk going to guard? Gasol?

    Dirk will be working to hard of D to put up anything significant. He won’t outstat his man. We win the PF matchup.

  • General Bauce

    Burn it DMAC!

  • RaiderRockstar

    OL was CLEARLY an area of weakness last year

    ***

    Jhill,

    OL has CLEARLY been an area of weakness for more than 5 years!

    it sucked before Gallery & Grove were drafted by Norv Turner and it has sucked ever since

  • General Bauce

    Llol how do u win PF matchup? Gasol cant guard Dirk….dirk will outscore him for sure and not like Gasol will put up 30 a game. No u dont win that. What about gasol being drawn from basket? Hurts board wise
