    Raiders Sign 75 OG Brisiel, 80 CB Bartell

    The Oakland Raiders announced Friday evening that they have signed cornerback Ronald Bartell, formerly of the St. Louis Rams.

    Bartell, 30, missed all but one game last season due to a severe neck injury. He’s one of the most underrated corners in football when healthy, however, and adds much needed experience to the perimeter of Oakland’s secondary. Bartell is a big (6’1/205), physical press cornerback and should be a strong mentor for youngsters Demarcus Van **** and Chimdi Chekwa.

    The Raiders also signed guard Mike Brisiel to a five-year deal that John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports is worth $20 million. Brisiel is an ideal fit for Oakland’s zone-blocking system and will immediately enter the starting lineup at right guard, replacing Cooper Carlisle.

    Bartell is the No. 32 overall player on the PFT Hot 100 list. Brisiel didn’t make the top 100 because he’s a one-scheme lineman, but the Raiders run that scheme.

    While these additions will generate little attention because they occurred late Friday, they are quality signings by first-year G.M. Reggie McKenzie. Bartell and Brisiel are both immediate impact starters.
    Going by the ratings, looks like a couple of solid signings for them.

    This is what can come to be expected from the Oakland Raiders from here on out. I guess the league needs to get used to it.

    Awesome signings; hopefully they're good enough to compete with the Chiefs next season, and if Peyton signs with the Donkeys...that's two to worry about for another 3 years.

    Feel bad for Raiders fans. A 85 overall to a 75 overall is a huge dropoff. That 10 point dropoff could cost them their season really.

    If Carlyle was updated to an 85, then Monty had to have been updated to at least an 81... I mean, let's be fair here.

    Cmon now lets think logically, we're not cavemen anymore. How would 10 player ratings mean a TD and a FG? If anything how would a 10 point dropoff in your OL even result to a TD and a FG, he's not the one scoring. Thinking realistically, this should allow you guys to take the 10 points you lost via OL and add them to a position that really matters, since OL are just overweight fat guys who don't even matter.
