I think the Raider organization feels as many of us, that Wheeler and Bryant stood out (not even Bryant really stood out IMHO) on an extremely bad defense surrounded by sub par talent by NFL standards.
Think Wheeler is Raiders priority though, Reggie and DA always say how he embodies what a football player is. Although it did say something when DA was listing leaders and did not mention Wheelers name even though he had the mic'd helmet. Personally I think/hope a deal gets done.
As for Bryant. In a very small DT FA market, somehow he had managed to be one of the highest rated. This will cause someone to overspend for him and save us some money. Again just my opinion.
Refreshing knowing we no longer jump the gun and overspend for mediocre players.
2013 is what it is, 2nd step of a 3 step rebuilding process. Just Win... as many as we can... Baby!
