Raiders OTA begins at 10 a.m. PDT today

By Steve Corkran
Monday, May 20th, 2013 at 9:53 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders organized team activities kicks off today, with most, if not all, of the veterans expected to attend. The Raiders permitted the media to attend today’s practice, with the two other OTA days this week closed to the media.
That will be the case throughout the OTA portion of the offseason, with the media granted one day’s access per week. So, stay tuned for Tweets and Twitpics, as well as blog posts, throughout the day.

    good afternoon raiders loyalists. I have been struggling with some of the banter over the past few days and seek some help in digesting the value of the 1 year contract. Guys like the Sir charlie the round mound of spinning, and guys like BCz who claim to above the bloggers with respect to wisdom have been shunning those who want sir reginald to sign players to more than a 1 yr deal.
    Its been my understanding, that besides a signing bonus, that most NFL contracts are not guaranteed. So why not pay the same signing bonus, but sign everyone to multi year deals, so in the case an unknown player rises to a star, we have them locked down for more than a year. If they turn out to be worthless, we just cut them anyway?
    Think about last year when we signed wheeler for peanuts. imagine if we did a 2 year deal with the no additional signing bonus for year 2. we could of had wheeler very cheaply in 2013.Am I missing something?

    can’t we just light one up in 2 minutes and avoid confrontation?

    In the NFL, free agency is very similar to buying a new car. It involves extensive research and negotiations and when you finally strike a deal, you’re genuinely happy. That is, until you drive the car off the lot and it begins depreciating. NFL free agents, like that new Camaro, can depreciate the second they sign their big contracts.
    Some players prove to be worth their free-agent contracts and then some others, well … not so much. Buyer’s remorse is common in the NFL as a big free-agent acquisition one year can be a salary cap causality the next.

    302, It’s all about leveling cap policies. This may help you understand why teams like one year deals.
