Report: Raiders about to release Kelly, pursuing trade for QB

The Raiders are going to release veteran defensive tackle Tommy Kelly on Wednesday, according to an CBSSports.com report.
Kelly, 32, has spent all nine of his NFL seasons with the Raiders after being signed as an undrafted free agent.
Kelly is slated to earn $6.5 million in base salary in 2013. He carries an $11.1 million cap figure based on a signing and miscellaneous bonus on top of his base salary.
Earlier this season, the Raiders released veterans Michael Huff, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Dave Tollefson in cost-saving measures.
Another CBSSports.com report said the Raiders are one of three teams interested in trading for Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Matt Flynn.
Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was in Green Bay when Flynn arrived in 2008 and spent his first four seasons as the backup to Aaron Rodgers.

    “NO WAY RAIDERS PAY PALMER AT THAT SALARY” ur move Carson

    ————————————

    Why pay Palmer when we are gonna draft Geno at #3 and pick up a 3rd for Carson immediately after that from AZ or Buff.

    The Raiders today have released Tommy Kelly. The club appreciates his service, dedication and toughness.
    And the cap space his release frees up so we can retain Carson Palmer.

    YEAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

    KC takes Geno
    Jags take Barkley

    Why would KC take Geno when they already traded big for Alex Smith?

  • Just Win Baby

    In terms of results based on compensation, I would have to rate Tommy Kelley as big a bust as Jamarcus Russell. Good riddance to one of the worst Al Davis signings of all time. Between TK and Routt alone, I think it’s safe to say that Davis was the worst GM of the last decade. Period.

  • raiderinparadise

    RediaR

    It’s only bad, and he is only fired, if the team doesn’t perform.

    And maybe it’s not picks. Maybe we trade other assets. Like the last year of a talented yet injury prone RB who has a 95% chance of not resigning after this year and would fit better on a team where he wouldn’t have to touch the ball 20+ times a game.

    Ok, so lose Plamers teams best QB, lose McFadden best offensive player when healthy …

    ahhh now were cooking! we got flynn!!!!! and he can hand off to jeremy stewart!

    Any time Tebow sees a camera, he falls to his knees in prayer. He’s a s phony as the day is long. He’s got the same blank look and hypnotized smile as those manson family girls who shaved their heads for good ol’ uncle Charlie. I would put odds that he’s going to be the player who is about to come out of the closet next too. He has had my gay-dar beping from jump.
    ******************************************88

    Me thinks you are a little bigoted towards Christians. I mean the kid was raised on the mission field and has been fairly consistent on and off camera. He is what he is. Would you prefer him to act like Rolando or something? The only thing wrong with him is he has this delusional dream that he can actually play QB in the NFL.

    ===============
    To the contrary, I consider myself a man of faith rather than religion and don’t feel the need to prove it by throwing it in everyone’s face every time I speak.
    *******************************

    Ok Just Win

    I get it you are “Holier than thou” not bigoted towards Christians.

    =============
    No, I believe holier than thou Christians are people like Tebow who have something to prove to everyone by wearing their religion like a badge. I have nothing to prove to anyone, including you. My faith is my relationship with God and I, unlike some people, don’t need the constant affirmation of other like-minded people to validate my faith.

    **********************************
    Just win Listen to yourself! Why are you posting this if you have nothing to prove? It seems to me you are judging other people like Tebow for wearing his faith like a badge. Just take a deep breath. I mean Tebow is a kid. Relative to other 25ish old kids – he seems like he is fairly striagtforward and considerate. Yes he prays a lot etc… in public but why is that bothering you so much?

    ————————-

    Speaking of Routt…I wonder what he is up to? If we sign him for the league minimum, wouldn’t that still make him the highest paid defensive player on the squad? I’m sure we are still paying him with some of that DEAD money…LOL.

    The Legendary Roots Crew are just that.
    Both them and Lil Jon are on NBC right now but The Roots are displaying their musical talent everynight. Lil Jon is running around with Garey Busey and Dennis Rodman so he doesn’t get fired by Donald Trump.

    Can’t wait for the Roots at Nokia in June.

  • RaiderRockstar

    KC takes Geno
    Jags take Barkley

    ***

    Geno Smith vs Alex Smith vs Chase Daniel

    Chad Henne vs Blaine Gabbert vs Matt Barkley

    Nah. I don’t see either one happening Jhill

    Luke Joeckel & Dion Jordan are going 1 and 2 according to almost everybody!!

  • Moose

    Kelly leaves $6.3 million in dead money which gives the team almost $5 million in salary cap savings.

    The Raiders now sit at nearly $11 million under the 2013 salary cap

    yeahhhhhhhhhh

  • raiderinparadise

    sign Routt, Denagelo Hall, Charles Woodson and NNamdi

    were back!

    Seth doege from texas tech:

    70.1% comPletions, 4205 yards, 39 tds, 16 ints

    Probably wont even get drafted.. Numers comparable to geno smith in the same conference
    Went 7-5. Actually beat geno’s team head to head Threw 76% completions for 499yds 6tds 1 int in that game. Geno went 53% completions, 278 yds 1 td 0 ints in that game. TTU WON 49-14.

    Y reach with the #3 for smith when this guys we can get as an udfa?

    Realtrue Raider

    I just rechecked three of the most recent of these polls the IBA one said simply should we release Palmer 66 percent now saying yes (this is just dump him with no trade value). The other is a recent bleacher report that says simply is Pryor ready to start? 75% say yes. Another earlier Bleacher Report poll had all options out there including Geno etc asking what we should do and Pryor won that one with 41% (almost twice what Palmer got). These polls all had more than 2k votes.

    ——————————————————-

    The one on IBA ask if we should cut Palmer if he doesn’t take paycut, of course he should be cut if he doesn’t take paycut, I thought thats how this all started? You must read what you want.

  • raiderinparadise

    The bills want geno smith, obviously. But can oak get a trade for the #3?

  • Just Win Baby

    Autumnwind, like I said, I have nothing to prove to anyone, including you. Your opinion of me is irrelevant. I can think whatever I want about Tebow and be entitled to my opinion. I’m sure he is as unconcerned about me and my opinion as I am of you and yours. I still think he is a d-bag. He was born to play for the Broncos.

    Raiders have only six players with more than six years’ NFL experience on their roster. That figure drops to five if QB Carson Palmer goes.

    Vegas, Tebone doesn’t have a team. Should find his true calling.

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/Eternal Optimist

    M.A.S.H. with Trapper John was good, with B.J. it kinda sucked(go ahead), picked up some with Charles.

    More to the point, discussing, or even arguing about comedy keeps Miss Tick, KK, Priest and Beech Lawg at bay. The first three have never shown a glimmer of a sense of humor and beech would be be embarassed to bring his lame shtick in here when actual comedy is being discussed. Or should be anyway.
