Brown gets second-round tender

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer

The Raiders continue to be impressed by the work of Ricky Brown as a reserve linebacker and special teams player, giving the five-year veteran a second-round tender.

Brown, who played in 14 games with one start for an injured Rolando McClain, joined the Raiders in 2006.

Upon completion of a collective bargaining agreement, there’s a good possibility five-year veterans will be granted unrestricted free agency. However, the designation is a hint that the Raiders are serious enough about keeping him that it’s likely he’ll be back.

    You people don’t know a damned thing about Bruce Campbell, OR, Mario Henderson at RT.

    Raiders are keeping the team together, so far we have not lost anyone although
    Gallery is all but gone, 98.7% gone

    Lechler 98.6% (Al has not forgotten)
    Mario 90%
    Gradkowski 90%

    Man, if somebody would just convince jason campbell to grow out his hair and spray it with soul glo, then the Raiders would really get their swagger back. ooo yeeeeeeeeeeah!

    )-Line as of now

    Vehldeer Loper Satele Carlsie Campbell
    back-up Parsons

    I do not think there are any others under contract or tendered.

    The Raiders drafting another QB is a wasted pick. They can’t develop QB’s.

    So you are saying Hue Jackson and Al Sauders cannot develop a quarterback? So the Ravens developed Joe Flacco and not Hue Jackson?

    With the final numbers coming out, the Seymour deal actually looks pretty decent. Raiders aren’t locked in long-term, and if he happens to dramatically fall off next year, the Raiders can cut their losses. Since it’s a short term deal, the Raiders had to pay a bit of a per-year premium, but I think it’s worth it to provide long term flexibility. In essence, it a two year franchise tag, with the second year being an option.

    Wow. Penning Campbell as starting Right Tackle is almost as maverick as paying Stanford Routt 10 mill per!

    No disrespect to either. Obviously they both could develop a QB.

    But, they work for Al Davis and AD Football Inc.

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    Well, the Raiders (any team for that matter) will have trouble developing QBs if they change the coaching staff every 2-3 years.

    What’s the over/under on the Hue/Al relationship going bad this year?

    I like the resigning of Mr. Loper, gives the Raiders options at the draft, makes them less predictable for their 2nd & 3rd round selections.

    I have a few prospects i liked us to take a look at.. if we purely focused on O-line..

    Round 2: C Rodney Hudson, C Stefen Wisniewski
    Round 3: OG Clint Boling, OT Jason Pinkston
    Round 7: OT Jah Reid

    It seems like this has become Al’s strategy for contracts. He has moved to short-term deals with higher per-year salaries rather than long-term deals with lower per-year salaries. When he said he was going to change his ways from those Javon Walker and MeAngelo Hall deals, he wasn’t lying. He will always shell out cash for players, but it looks like they just won’t be ridiculous looking long-term deals.

    Bob Wylie, one of the O-line coach with most losses..
