    Yes but what I meant is we extremely overpaid for those OL but thankfully they kinda worked out, most of our other FA were mediocre mid talent that we had to overpay for..

    Yes, there were a few top FAs that at least visited. Trust me when I say that it was more than the city and the stadium that kept them away. If the Raiders had put good, winning product on the field, all of the window dressing crap gets ignored.

    this website is the best when it comes to salary cap. We have 60.1m in cap space. Not sure where they got 53m from. Unless the 53 is because they did not take into affect that the salary cap was rising.

    So 60.1m free space, here are some potential cuts:

    D. Carr - 5m in dead money - if cut would save us 16.5m this year
    T. Williams - 11.1m - 0 dead money
    G. Jackson - 9.6m - 0 dead money
    Whitehead - 7.3m - 1m in dead cap but saving us 6.3
    Erik Harris - 2.5m - 0 dead cap
    D. Carrier - 1.85m - 0 dead cap
    Z. Jones - 1.4m - 0 dead cap

    so take Carr out of that equation and if we cut the others our 60.1m in cap space turns into = $92.85m which would be #1 on the list that was just posted.
    I could see Whitehead and Williams looking for new teams. You can find improvements on the cheap for both men in the draft. Jackson is probably the only "safe" one, as I hear he's a Cable favorite. But it wouldn't shock me if they moved him as well.

    Bottom line, weíre a ton more attractive now than Oakland.

    I thought it was just Carr that was holding us back from the playoffs. That doesnít sound like a talent deprived team to me.

    ITs kinda strange that we are looking at trying to pick up Byron jones through fa. When he is the 17th ranked cb.
    And in 2013 we drafted a guy named dj, who now plays for the jaguars and is the 10th ranked cb in the nfl. And didnít give up a td all season(1 of 2 corners that didnít).

    Iíve never, not even once, said Carr was the sole reason.
