Fox: Wimbley to sign tender

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, February 28th, 2011 at 8:47 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    Why does anyone here care what Al does w/ his money? It’s not yours. Routt is worth the money and was trhe best DB on the team last season followed by Huff (his money is coming) Jonhson can’t cover deep routes and Aso can’t cover crossing routes. Would love to see us keep Aso and move him to SS where he could roam and use his brains.

    94. Main stricking point is the owners want an 18% pay cut AND 2 more games. all the while claiming they’re broke when the leagie made over $9 BIULLION dollars last year.

    League refuses to open its books for the NFLPA. Jeez, wonder why…

    Fans care because, overspending on a player who is not worth that much money makes ZERO sense.

    Especially when that money could have been used to keep a better player and perennial Pro Bowler in Nnamdi.

    Get it?

    When the owners open their books, than maybe they get somewhere. Other than that….the lockout resumes.

    I like it….screw the lying owners.

    One player does not make a Defense, and deffinatly not a CB. Saftey much more important. I e Branch stuffing run and being burnt on pass.

    Al Davis better hope the league keeps Revenue Sharing at a pretty generous rate.

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

    The players may not get everything they want, but we’re talking about the salary cap here and it’ll be a cold day in hell before the salary cap goes DOWN. The cap is like CA real estate, it plateaus and then goes up again.

    I think the likelihood of a cap increase as part of a new CBA is pretty good. If 18 games is on the table, it HAS to increase.

  • raiderfankirk

    Why do owners need to open books? What other bus. does that? Can’t union just look at tax records? I here news reporting on big bus. tax all the time.

    The less observant, won’t miss Nnamdi until he’s gone.

    If these selfish a** holes take my football away, I may have to start going to church on Sundays. That would be awful.

  • http://www.pro-football-reference.com/ KoolKell

    Yikes!

  • http://raiders.com A.B. Paine III

    I’m all for letting Nnamdi go if Al uses that money to pick up some offensive lineman or get some other help. But, if he is just going to waste it away by overpaying guys, then we know he has seriously lost his marbles.

  • M Lonetree

    just checked in to see if anyone was urging the Raiders to pick up that Buckeye phenom, that JaMarcus of DEs, Vernon Gholston now that he’s available.

    usually LMN makes a cry for any garbage released by any other team. Guess he’s busy with pirates.

  • http://raiders.com A.B. Paine III

    M Lonetree, Wimbley workd out. So, you never know. Maybe Gholston can be resurrected too.

  • http://raiders.com A.B. Paine III

    BTW, is Davis ever going to pick up a defensive coordinator?

  • YoungAmerican

    I’d say Gholston is far more comparable to Jarvis Moss than Wimbley. Wimbley actually looked like a football player at one point in his career. His sack numbers just dropped off considerably after his huge rookie season.

    I’d rather the Raiders brought back Jarvis Moss than sign Gholston.

  • http://raiders.com A.B. Paine III

    Anyone have an opinion on Anne Hathaway playing Cat Woman in the next Batman movie? I would have rather seen Marion Cotillard play the part.

  • Harder2000

    Gholston is a hard worker and even restructured his contract to stay and try to make the team. He didn’t, and he has been a nonfactor for three years, so its fair to label him a bust. But he is not comparable to JaMarcus who wouldnt work and wouldnt restructure to try and get his carrer back on track.. The thing with Wimbley and Gholston is that both are better fit for the 4-3 system, and both were drafted to the 3-4.. There’s no guarantee he would work out, but with a good work ethic, no off field issues, a physical power, low salery and 24 years old, Gholston still has potential to become something in the right system.. At the very least he could compete for a spot, and be cut if he didn’t make it.. Trevor Scott was not that great when he was placed at end again, and Houston has been used on the inside a lot more towards the end of the season, so there could be use for an additional end besides Houston, Shaugh and Moss..

    ***************
    I will say it again. I am ABSOLUTELY certain that Al did not sign these other guys and not have enough money for Nnamdi. Nnamdi may have already told Al to close the checkbook, and most people who know more about football than we do think Nnamdi simply does not WANT to return to the Raiders next year. It is a fact that if Al wants Nnamdi, and Nnamdi wants to return then the money will be there. It is just crazy to think that Al made all these signings, then got to Aso and was like… ooops sorry dude we ran out of money. Gonna have to let ya walk.

    I agree that we have appeared to overspend on these guys, but I dont pretend to know how much money NFL teams budget for payroll, and again, I sincerely doubt Al will ever let a player he wants get away because of money.

    *******
    I think the character of Catwoman should be ignored in this telling of the Batman saga. Batman Begins and Dark Knight were much darker, and I would hate to see a corny catwoman ruin the series. I think Anne Hathaway is definitely sexy enough to play the role though, if you want proof check the movie Havoc.

    Ghoulston’s a h/w/s specimen and a former 1st rnd pick so yeah, he’s on Davis’ Raidar.(Thats right, raidar and its mine)

    Right about him being a better 4-3. Miscast by his orig team like Groves AND Wimbley

    Bcz24, I don’t think Catwoman is corny. After the Joker, she is probably the most interesting rival to the Batman.

    133. Hathaway’s des[perately trying to prove shes not a tweener after thought.

    The Batman franchise was taken over by the Republican propaganda machine. So much so one of the alphabet agencies murdered Heath Ledger to assure 10s of millions would see it.

    Think about the symbolism in that light next time you watch it.

    Two face. Batman abusing cell phone tech and invading priviacy to find the Joker who represnts insane bombers. The “criminals” on the ferry are actually the “good” guys ect ect.

    Gross…

    ********
    I dont think the Catwoman character in general is corny, but I could easily see them turning it into a fairly corny character pretty quickly. I LOVED the way they portrayed the Joker in DK. Very dark… you could feel the insanity. If they hold true to that for Catwoman I think it could work though.

    ***

    Agreed!

    Chattanooga’s Buster Skrine ran a 4.29

  • RaiderRockstar

    Colorado cornerback Jimmy Smith ran a 4.38 forty, which is very impressive considering his size (6’2) and weight (212 pounds). While Smith has off-field concerns, his talent is undeniable

    ***

    how many CB’s do we need?

    is CJ37 a lock to return ???

  • bcz24

    Wheres Skrine grade out round wise?

  • RaiderRockstar

    Marcus Stroud signed a 2-year deal with the Patriots.

    Bummer!

    Wish we could have signed Stroud to pair with Henderson as a reserve DT …

    then moved Desmond Bryant to DE and released Jarvis Moss

    I expect Trevor Scott to be our pass rush specialist on obvious passing downs from DE or WLB, anyways :)

  • RaiderRockstar

    BCZ,

    PFT calls Buster Skrine “a mid-to-late round pick”

    … which to Al Davis means Top 50!
