1) Geno Atkins on our radar per Greg Pappa of 95.7 the game.
2) Rumor floated around:

A writer from the Daily News Stephen Michaels.

#raiders have spoken to Arizona about swapping picks

No details on what we get from AZ. If we’re after Atkins, it means Vea is off the board, leaving BPA for DB, ILB, OT with the 10 pick.

Disclaimer on the AZ rumor... it is definitely just a rumor. The writer is not a big time source nor does he have a reputation one way or the other. Just sharing tid bids to alleviate the boredom. The Greg Pappa thing has more legs as he is known to have scoops and insider knowledge.

Reggie has to be careful about signing some of these free agents as they could dump and be a waste of a roster spot and cap hit. it's all about production and value and filling a need at a certain position. I do think Gruden will collaborate with Reggie regarding these needs obviously.If we do well in free agency, the draft and Conley can be healthy and contribute as well as Obi and Karl Joseph. Novarro Bowman needs to be resigned. Things have to fall into place without panic moves and overspending. I like the fact we have a very smart football guy like Gruden in our corner now to oversee this roster and the moves.

That’s absolutely true. I don’t think we will spend big in FA. Maybe one “splash” signing. 11 picks and resigning our own as you mentioned. Bowman, Autry are musts in my opinion. Only reason I see Adkins as a possibility is that he supposedly is the key player for that line in Cincy. I don’t watch the Bungles much so I can only go with what’s been reported. His contract is manageable, and he has 2 years left on it at 29. Getting him and drafting Vea would be a great scenario if he’s what they say he is in the press.

Bills just traded Tyrod to the Browns for a third this year. Looks like they want a QB in mind in the draft. They have to get ahead of AZ at 15 to make sure they can get their guy if he’s still there at 10. We could get their 21 and 22 picks in a trade on draft day. This is where the coin flip would have helped.

A trade back scenario would be cool, id just hope we would take advantage of the additional 2nd round pick.
If the Doug Mart8n rumors are true...it may be the 1st dominoe to fall.
Gruden loves vets...and he wants competion in camp. I thin Martin is washed up personally, but he may be better to spell Lynch if he's kept on the roster.

Agreed... Martin was done after the PED suspension. He can’t juice up, he can’t play it seems.

Vea and Geno adkins would be huge for our defensive line. Couple that with other guys developing and contributing and a new DC our defense would be on the right track this season.

Man that’s a hell of a scenario. If we go after Adkins, Autry is probably gone. But if that’s the swap out, I’m not mad about it at all.

We need a defense that has a presence and get more 3 and outs, flip the field and give our offense chances to score points on a shorter field and control the ball and clock. Thats what would get us a shot at the Lombardi. Gruden will get the offense moving the ball.
