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.

    @bcz24

    So what do you think when the team leaks it to the Media that they gave permission to a players’ agent to seek a trade…i.e. McClain?

    There really isn’t any trade going to happen without a players’ active participation?
    *****************
    Once the team gives the player the ok to seek a trade, tampering is off the board.

    If we don’t establish a running game and get one more good back in the backfield it will not matter who we have at QB.

    Palmer gave us 4018 yards of productivity but we were usually out of games, playing from behind or getting blew out! The bottom line is he we only won 4 games and he ended up throwing 14 INTs to 22 TDs. I have no problem with Palmers arm. I have a problem with him doing a bad job of protecting the football. We have one of the best kickers in the league and Palmers throws up an INT when we could get at least a field goal out of many drives last year. To me he kills the momentum of the game but he’sis not the only issues on this team. Our formula is not working, It is time to blow the team up and start over.

    I think we should focus on establishing the run power game taking advantage of a big front line and than ipen up the past. Every team in the league knew DMAC could not use his down hill speed in the zone scheme. And after DMAC we really don’t have a threat at the RB positon. Plus we never used the versatility of Reece.

  • tonedeezy

    i don’t hate palmer, i actually like him. i just realize that he is mediocre at best, and he is waaay overpaid.

    if he won’t take a pay cut, that means he does not want to be a Raider. period.
    taking a pay cut and helping develop pryor would pretty much guarantee him a place in this organization for eternity…

    any trade for Palmer at this point would be “the greatest trade in all of sports.”

    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.

    Sanford and son featured the legendary redd foxx. Classic.

    ———

    Restructured his contract first two years, mentored pryor, learned 2 new offenses, on way to 3rd, took hits, no proven WR’s, no run game and has done nothing but support his team and keep competing, tried to go back into meaningless panthers game with broken ribs …..

    and you think he should take a 3rd paycut when he is the best QB and has already helped team twice?

    cut the fat around him and give hima defense, run game, and add another good WR.

    Imdb? Those are fan polls. Stupid people like u.

    Take a college course sometime. African American studies. Film and tv studies.

    If u don’t know what I mean by broad comedy, I don’t know what to tell u. It’s obvious “clown” stuff. No subtlety or cleverness or wit.

    U like most of those shows for the same reason so many people like tyler perry. Cuz it has black people in it. Ur desperate for something u can relate to.

    U clearly don’t know Black film and tv history. Chappelle was not really groundbreaking. In living color was to an extent cuz it was a mostly black cast doing skits. But snl was truly the groundbreaker there.

    70′s tv in general was groundbreaking.

    Since then, it has floundered.

    And u should realize how obscene it is to call someone racist without cause. U may not realize it, but u set urself way back when u do it.

    Intelligent people don’t resort to that kind of thing when someone disagrees. It’s weakness.

    As u see, I’ve been attempting to actually have a conversation with u, cuz I thought u were a bit different than the idiot missdick.

    But ur infantile name calling (any white guy who doesn’t like Martin is a clansman) makes u seem really dumb.

    I posted up 6 polls that had to do with Pryor vs. Palmer or what should we do with QB. All of them had sizable numbers for Pryor starting now (33% or more) Three of the most recent have 60-70% saying something to the effect we should dump Palmer and start Pryor.

    You are right on the fact that not all show over 65% but 3/6 do and all show sizable percentages. My point is most fans want Pryor in there and it reminds me of the irrational behavior of Denver fans with Tebow.
