Raiders line up visit with potential replacement for Carlisle

On the heels of releasing veteran right guard Cooper Carlisle on Wednesday, the Raiders lined up a visit with free agent Mike Brisiel.
Brisiel’s position? You guessed it, right guard. His former team? The Houston Texans, the team that employed current Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Knapp the past two seasons and current Raiders offensive line coach Frank Pollack the past five seasons.
Brisiel, who turned 29 today, has spent all six of his NFL seasons with the Texans. He started 47 games the past five seasons, including 13 last season.
It’s possible that the Raiders will bring back Carlisle at some point, just at a cheaper salary than the $3 million he was slated to earn in 2012. In the interim, the Raiders are checking out other options.
Brisiel missed the final three games of last season with a broken leg. He also missed time in 2010 with a calf injury. Carlisle missed only one snap last season and one game the past seven seasons.

    I was going to disregard the 2 year rule when Al passed, but Hue kept the tradtion alive!

    On Bartell: “He is known for his cover skills, but he is not a real interception threat. He has eight interceptions in his career.”

    Kinda sounds like a description that fit a guy named Nnamdi. If I recall, he was actually pretty good ….

    Looking at his stats that last few years I see two other Nnamdi-esque things as well. He averages only about one pass defended per game and he has a ton of tackles, most of them solo. That means that either he’s a real tight cover corner that QBs don’t like to throw at and he’s an very good tackling CB in run support, OR it could mean that he lets the WRs catch everything in front of him and then makes the sure tackle.

    This article is a little old, but note that at the end of the 08-09 season, in a detailed breakdown this author had Bartell rated as the #7 overall CB in the league: http://www.operationsports.com/forums/pro-football/289299-top-50-cbs-nfl.html
