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.

    Hey, Kell. Now that you’re awake and lucid(for you), can you tell us how Pryor did on 3rd down conversions and red zone efficiency compared to Palmer?

  • guest123

    Tebow and his phony praying schtick put religious zealots arses in the seats. Wherever he goes, he brings millions of bible thumping “look at how christian I am” fanbase right along with him. If it’s all about money, he will end up on some team that doesn’t really plan on playing him just like it was in NY . Fortunately, I don’t see Oakland and the black hole as a likely destination for his ilk. But, anything is possible if he comes cheap……

    ^^^^^^^^^

    Really suprised at the hate in this post. I don’t think Tebow is even a bit phony. Maybe corny, maybe misguided, maybe naive. But not phony.

    I am with you on not wanting him here either. He’s a good man, a good leader of men. But he can’t throw an accurate pass to save his life. Discussion ends there.

    why hasn’t anybody offered to trade for toilet paper? he’s young, cheap and according to Raider fans a starter. why hasn’t EVEN 1 TEAM offered a pick for him? Raider fans need to wake up.

    ***

    @Misty

    Ask yourself the same question regarding Palmer

    Maybe because neither player is on the trade block?

    Perhaps neither player was given permission to seek a trade, making talking to a player or their agent off limits? it’s called tampering

    : it not called tampering during FREE AGENCY. jeebus cristos man. are you actually asking why nobody has wanted to trade for palmer? do you have any football snese? i won’t even explain it to you, its too funny. Pryor is young cheap and the next big thing but nobody offers a pick for him? i call bullsh*t on toilet paper. he’s not the one, neither is CP. the both will walk or ride pine.

  • dr_robert

    Martin and fresh prince were both corny.

    Cosby was popular but tepid.

    In living color was good.

    227/amen/roc all sucked.

    Calling me a closet clansman for no good reason is obscene and an embarrassment. U should be ashamed of urself, throwing garbage like that around like candy.

    Disgusting.

    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.

  • beach

    I am a Palmer fan. That being said, he should accept not a nickel more than $10 Mil in 2013 to stay. He is a better than average QB. He would be great if he could stop throwing INTs. Take the pay cut, Carson, for the benefit of the Oakland Raiders. Otherwise, we may be forced to look elsewhere.

    I don’t want Flynn, not Geno Smith, not Matt Barkley ….

    I still stand that we go with Palmer and Pryor in 2013 and add a 3rd string. See what happens with new roster and if it blows up, great QB draft next year and Pryor can play last half of season to see if we need to go QB in draft or not.

    if palmer plays well (which is what i see) then his payscale suddenly supports his 2 restructures he already took and he plays to 2015 until pryor wins it over, seeing time in packages.

    I don’t much care if the man is a hypocritical flamer who likes to dress up in womens clothes and hang out in SF 49er bars, if he can throw an accurate pass downfield in a collapsing pocket, I’d still want him as a backup QB. Thankfully for us, he’s not.

    U don’t even make sense with most of what u say. U lack the ability to even converse in the most basic way.

    When I say good black friend, u go off on so e stupid rant about how most friends have something good about them? Are u stupid? Anyone knows I would mean they are close friends, not just casual.

    Sorry. Ur taste in comedy is rather bland and “common”. Ur the reason why bad shows continue to get made. Cuz stupid people will like them.

    Chappelle show? Pretty funny. Hit and miss at times, like most skit shows.

    U know who else said black tv sucks? Chris rock. Look it up. He started a scholarship for black writers at Howard university cuz he said he wanted a black Seinfeld. Something really good and high quality.

    Most tv is bland and broad. Black tv has usually suffered from cheap budgets and poor writing and producing.

    In the seventies, there was a period of time where they hit equal footing. The Jefferson’s was a spinoff of all in the family and they were both great.

    Good times was bad ass. Took no prisoners.

    What’s happening wasn’t quite as good but pretty funny show about some typical black kids. Just doing their thing.
