    Carr is pretty good. Try again. Try harder though.

    The one thing I don't like about this signing is that Thomas is getting paid more money than Hankins. And Hankins is a far better player.

    Carr only has downside. ďIt is known.Ē



    "..And then the Raiders drafted the Knight in Shining Armor Prince Quarterback. Then they went on to win the Super Bowl. All the women in the kingdom cheered and they lived happily ever after...""

    Solomon Thomas is only 25. Plus we just saw a 4 year player show upside with Agholor just last season.

    Raiders drafted Damon Arnette who as a rookie was 24.

    Agholor was already a good receiver. He was even a better receiver in Grudens system

    Solomon has potential but he's a dt/de hybrid just like ferrell only more athletic.What exactly is gus bradley thinking?

    His defense really is a hybrid type of defense that can show multiple looks.

    Ferrell and thomas might just be asked to control gaps amd set edge.We probably will draft another leo for more depth.Nassib truly might be the odd man out.

    Bradley's scheme is very simple just like Marinelli's. He runs a basic cover 3 scheme. Nothing really complicated. That's why they hired him.

    Not sure itís a good sign he couldnít play well on a good defense. But he was drafted high for a reason- so he does have potential. Now letís see what Bradley can do with our underperforming players. Thereís quite a few of them.

    This is a good deal, He was starting to play strong, Some said he was cause of his contract. He has incentive to play hard for us.

    Yea he was good when he played for the Trojans. In Philly his play was so below good the only contract he could get was a veteran salary benefit deal, which means it counted as just $887,500 against the Raidersí cap. If any team out there last year thought Nelson was good he would have gotten a real contract. Not a one year prove it contract.
