1st FA Signing

Ian Rapoport

@RapSheet

The #Raiders are adding some WR depth, signing former #Ravens WR Griff Whalen, source said. Receiver and returner.

Quite a splash to start off our FA period. I’m sure we’ve all been waiting for the trigger to be pulled on this guy. As Dead pointed out, screw the cap, we “sign who we want”. This is who we targeted Dead? Or are we going after who we can afford because we don’t have the cap space to compete with teams who have 2 to 3 times our cap space?

That tells me he and Gruden have already identified their targets, and have a good idea that they'll be able to sign them.

He’s involved in this pivotal play here as well. “We can sign who we want”. He’s been “targeted and identified”. We “had a good idea we could sign him”. Deadringer is dead on! LMFAO.

Oh and the hits keep on coming. He’s a vegan and he does PR work for PETA. Good thing we saved the cash on Sherman and DeVonta for this guy. He’s definitely “we can sign who we want” material.

As long as he can catch the ball!!! Maybe has a west coast offense skill set. Man, the O-line has to learn the new blocking scheme and Carr has a new playbook. Our defense might have to step up and keep the points down until our offense can move the ball comfortably and get points. I'll still stand at a 7-9 or 8-8 year because of this. Maybe and hopefully I'm wrong.

10-6 and a wild card would be tops based on all the changes and holes on D we have to fill. I think Chucky can get that O to a 10-15 ranking and win some shoot outs. That’s my hope. The Whalen dude is for ST duty mostly. Has a handful of catches his whole career. Most his “highlights” involve ST play.

LOL... quality signing. Just draft. Fuck wasting money on old and/or useless scrubs. If we can't sign quality players in FA, just forget it. Every year I'm depressed before the season even starts.

"I've been vegan for 2 years"................ I wonder how long he's been gay. He looks like a fuckin' fag.

We will go hard after Trumain Johnson. We have about 16 mil after cutting Newhouse and Smith. That’s figuring in what we have to set aside for the rookie pool. If a bidding war breaks out for any of the tier one guys, we will be on the outside looking in. The tier 2 guys are more likely where we have a chance to surprise.
