Bartell is gone and so is Spencer!!! But not Huff!
Huff got scorched over and over again last night... he is not a cornerback, not really a safety either ... and therefor a cap casualty
The Scranton Scrapper!
That's funny! I thought I saw Bartell getting scorched over and over again. They seemed to stay away from Huff.
I really like Huff's attitude and hustle. Unfortunately though, with all of the money we just gave Branch I believe our best bet would be to spend the money else where. I just don't see the $8 mil per year being feasible with our cap situation being what it is. Waaaay too many holes to fill. Thank you for your service and you will always be a Raider IMO.
Alright Huff may not be worth the $8 million. But we are short on capable CBs as well as many other positions so we might as well get by with what we have. Now we may have found another Chris Johnson in this Phillip Adams. This guy was regarded as a sleeper in the 2010 draft, something that Johnson was never seen as.
Phillip Adams showed he has heart and he has the ability to make plays. That definitely translate into a quality NFL player.
Adams played very well last night, but let's look at the remainder of the season before hoping he has a roster spot next year. I believe the only guy thus far that has earned a spot back next year is Wheeler. This guy has overachieved and is a great leader for a hopefully up and coming defense.
His pick, to me was an ESPN Top 10, but we need more out of him and yes, we still need to focus on the secondary in the draft or in a FA. We have too many holes. I am also not quick to cast off Huff either. The guy comes to play and RM said he wants players who want to be here and I believe Huff has shown just that.
I didn't even know he was on the team to be honest. I was thinking to myself " who the hell is Adams ? " .. He did come out of nowhere and stepped up big time to atleast try hard for the defense. He did seem to play with some heart.
I don't know much about him but I do want to see what more he can do.

They're not super-stars, but they might be among the players who stick around. IMO, we're starting to see a legitimate foundation for the success of the 2013 team.
BTW - I'm not sold on Brisel being a scrub. Is he giving up pressure up the middle? Not usually. Furthermore, the run blocking has been sufficient, Oakland just chooses to employ runners who don't run to open space.
