    Ranked 26th in defense and 6th in offense in 2016...so naturally we are only signing offensive players.

    Can't see us carrying 3 active QBs, maybe we're not as high on Cook as JDR led us to believe.

    My guess is we feel we can address multiple needs for D in a strong D draft. Letting the players filter to us. No panic.....i like the approach.

    Let's see the terms of the contract before we go crazy. He's a veteran who has started in the NFL. This isn't a knock on Cook, it's an insurance policy on Carr. This lets Cook continue to develop for another year. If Cook outperforms Manuel, he is 2nd string.

    I remember when Reggie wanted him badly in the 2013 draft. What does he see in him?

    Good question. They haven't dressed 3 QBs for years. I thought this is the year to bring Cook along as the backup, but maybe not.
    The autumn wind is a Raider

    EJ Manuel adds competition to the depth at quarterback, which is always a good thing to have. EJ Manuel is likely a better backup that Matt McGloin was and the presence of Manuel will make Connor Cook have to compete.

    The focus on offense in free-agency tells me that the Raiders are likely to use most, if not all, of their draft picks for defensive players. The Raiders need an outside linebacker, inside linebacker, pass-rushing defensive tackle, slot corner, and depth at safety. Assuming that Aldon Smith returns, he will likely be a flex-rusher who can play standing up or at the line, but the Raiders should assume that he hasn't earned the trust needed to be a full-time starter... yet.
