Fox: Wimbley to sign tender


According to a report by Adam Caplan of Fox Sports, the one-year tender to Kamerion Wimbley will be worth even more than expected _ coming in at $11.32 million.

UPDATE: The reason Wimbley’s tender estimate is higher is he received an “exclusive” franchise tag, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. That meant the Raiders don’t want him negotiating with any other teams even if the return was two first-round draft picks. Obviously that would never happen, so you wonder why the Raiders would just tack on another $1 million plus when the original plan was to pay him about $4.1 million on the buyback deal which was disallowed. The final number will be determined by the top five salaries at Wimbley’s position in 2011.

Agent Joe Linta said Wimbley would sign the tender _ and why wouldn’t he? Considering how much more he’ll get than the $635,000 in salary and $3.5 million buyback the Raiders had hoped to pay, it’s a minor upset that he hasn’t already signed it.

    I would rather look at Kris Jenkins than Stroud anyways.

    Skrine (pronouced Screen) looks like a 5th rounder, seems to me if Al is going to address CB through the draft it would be much earlier.

    Aso can’t cover crossing routes. Would love to see us keep Aso and move him to SS


    LOL @ raiderfankirk!

    I ignored that one Rock… How does this genius know that Nnamdi cant cover crossing routes, but opposing QBs and OCs dont know that… oh and lets pony up 15 mil then move him to STRONG safety? Poor post, I just let it slide.

    Kamerion Wimbley: You be the judge



    Kamerion Wimbley Career Average: 7 sacks, 45 solo tackles per year

    LaMar Woodley Career Average: 9 sacks, 35 solo tackles per year

    Essentially identical stats. Are the Rooneys just as guilty of overpaying as Al Davis, or is Kamerion Wimbley exactly the type of player who gets tagged at OLB? You be the judge.
