    Hall, Walker costly against ‘09 cap

    Hall, Walker costly against ‘09 cap
    Hall, Walker costly against ‘09 cap - Inside The Oakland Raiders - A look inside the world of the highly classified Oakland Raiders from the writers of ANG Newspapers

    blurb
    The Raiders are not only out $20 million in actual dollars for the 16 games played by DeAngelo Hall and Javon Walker, but will also see both players take up a good chunk of salary cap space in 2009.

    With Hall having been waived, the Raiders will have $5.833,334 in “dead money” under the 2009 cap, according to league figures.
    That essentially guarantees the Raiders will have to pay a $5 million bonus, unless they want to argue that Walker has completely recovered from surgery and is healthy. That road could be perilous. Players for the most part don’t care if Al Davis occasionally battles with coaches over money.

    Props to the Front Office for making these moves to bring us back to Greatness. HOLY CRAP. Is it still Lane Kiffin's fault?

    It's unbelievable the level of incompetence and dysfunction that permeates the Raiders front office and just works its way down to the product on the field. No team in the modern salary cap era can afford to have that much "dead money" counting against the team's salary cap and be expected to field a competitive team, much less a winning team. Will this franchise ever stop shooting themselves in the foot?

    All I can say is that Javon Walker has a really good agent and Al Davis or whoever signed off that contract is a real dumbass.

    With Walker's injury history giving him such a contract is the height of folly.

    Assuming the Raiders pay the $5 millon bonus and make good on the injury guarantee, Walker’s salary cap figure will be $10,833,333, including $4 million in salary.
    Should Oakland pay the guarantee as stipulated and then cut Walker, the 2009 cap charge $14,166,667 to terminate the relationship.
    As soon as I heard about the injury I thought, "Oh sh!t. Where does that leave us?"
    So there you go. Keep him with a cap hit of $10.83m or waive him with a cap hit of $14.17m (or $7.08m in 2009 and $7.08 in 2010).

    We are quite royally FUBAR(ed).

    Unbelievable. Those two moves were HIGHLY questionable to begin with and now they've become 10000x more inexplicable only halfway through the season. It's completely mind boggling how badly this team is operated. And this doesn't even take into account Tommy Kelly (yes, TOMMY FREAKING KELLY) being the highest paid interior DL in the history of the NFL.
