    Some noteworthy 2013 free agents...

    I was bored and decided to look up all of the pending free agents that may be available in the offseason at positions of need for our Raiders. I came up with a list of names, and although I wouldn't necessarily like to acquire some of these names, it's not out of the realm of possibility IMO. So here goes. (a ** will be placed beside players I wouldn't mind acquiring)


    RB (assumind we trade McFadden)

    Larod Stephens-Howling **
    Felix Jones
    Reggie Bush (could be solid....too injury prone tho)
    Chris Ivory **
    Andre Brown**
    Shonn Greene
    Mike Goodson ** (wouldn't mind see Goodson return)
    Jeremy Stewart *** (would love to see what this kid has, I've liked what I've seen so far)



    WR

    Andrew Hawkins **
    Donald Jones
    Domenik Hixon
    Danny Amendola **



    TE

    Brandon Myers *** (MUST resign this guy IMO)
    Anthony Fasano
    Jared Cook
    Jermichael Finley?



    O-Line

    Tackle-------
    Andre Smith **
    Ryan Clady
    Sebastian Vollmer
    Jermon Bushrod **
    Phil Loadholt

    Guard---------
    Andy Levitre **
    Ryan Lilja




    D-Line

    Cliff Avril **
    Osi Umenyiora
    Andre Carter ** (wouldn't mind seeing him resigned)



    Linebacker

    Manny Lawson
    Erin Henderson
    Philip Wheeler ** (another MUST)
    Shaun Phillips


    DB

    Brent Grimes **
    Jairus Byrd **
    Sam Shields **
    Sean Smith
    Aqib Talib **
    Patrick Chung
    Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (would like to have him but would cost too much $$)
    Dashon Goldson **
    Marcus Trufant




    I am sure I missed some names and there will be some other names become available once cuts begin, but damn we need a lot of help...lol


    Thoughts?!?

    If Huff leaves Patrick Chung is available. He lost his job after he got hurt. Not sure how good he is but he might be cheap enough.
    I remember some of us wanted to draft RT Sebastian Vollmer too.

    i think RM will have to look at an o-lineman. If we give briesel one more year to get it right then we still need a RT and either a C or LG. Barnes should be kept as depth IMO but carlisle is too old. Could also go for a good LT and move veldheer to RT.

    I was hoping Mark Ingram was a FA this offseason. He doesn't get a fair shake in that offense, in NO. I would take a chance on him, with or without DMac.

    We would need an O-line first...

    Ingram would be an interesting option. He has flashed the capability of being a very good back from time to time. I see New Orleans letting Ivory go and keeping ahold of Ingram tho. They did trade up to draft the guy after all.

    Personally I would love to see Reggie go after either Vollmer or Bushrod for o-line help. I would like to see Aqib Talib get a look too.... if Talib gets his head straight he is a VERY good DB.

    Pickins are slim. Better draft well.

    Chris Johnson could be cut...

    Wouldn't really want him though, would ask for too much $$$$ for little production.

    I don't think Reggie is the type to make a big splash in free agency, plus it would be hard with our limited cash. I think Reggie might pick up some relatively cheap guys that are capable of starting but mainly build through the draft. At least until our cap problems are dealt with.

    I agree with our cap situation I dont see us making any big moves in FA.Hopefully we purge some of the trash vets we have and get more picks/cap space.We need to get as many picks as we can to do this the right way IMO

    No More Free Agent Cast Offs

    Personally, I want to go with young, hungry guys through the draft, I feel this is what RM will do. Why are we, going to sign free agents when we are still currently in cap hell. We have seen what terrible free agent signings can do (RM signed Brisiel, and has been a disaster), let's go with young, fresh guys who can be coached up (we need a new OL Coach). Guys who will be really good in two- three years. Just my opinion, we are not a player or two away. We are not even a year or two away from being a good team, right now.
