Going to keep this simple and brief. Raiders will be back! As you may know Raiders are forced to spend money. I fully expect us to pony up on marquee free agents as we have improved depth on the team with a strong draft in 2014, finding a couple decent bench role players in previous free agency/UDFA

Cuts:
Schuab
Roach
MJD
Woodley
Branch

Free Agency:
Ndamukong Suh- Raider give him a record deal, as the highest paid defensive player with the most guaranteed money of any defensive player. Around 22m of the cap, Raiders donít have to pay Mack for a few years so they can front load the contract to more money to reach the salary floor.

Rodney Hudson-I expect Wiz to bolt. Chiefs barely have any cap space with the franchise tag of Justin Houston. Hudson to be paid top 3 center money to lure him over @ around 10m. Hudson gets paid and has a chance to stick it to his former team twice a year. What other team with our guap needs a center?

Julius Thomas- Many people may not like this move, but it makes sense. We have a huge hole at TE and need to spend money. A chance to weaken a division rival and add a nice target for Carr. Packers have been clearing space and I donít see they letting him go. Thomas canít block but he is a matchup nightmare. Grew up a Raider which might help us land him as long as we pay his according. Coaching staff could challenge themselves to focus on blocking. Jack Del Rio has to know him from Bronco Days. Signed to around 8m annually. Suitors Jags or Raider. I think he chooses the latter

Rey Maualuga- played his ball at the tail end of last year. Bengals may bring his back, but we will be player for him. People may feel he is hit or miss. I think we sign him as Ken Norton coached him in his college days as a star. 6m annually but with a chance to void the deal after year two if he doesnít pan out. Mike Brown is known to be cheap.

Justin Blalock- Mike Tice recruits him over. Still can go Falcons dumped him because they are switching to a zone scheme. Interior lineman usually can go longer into their carer, sign him to a Donald Penn type deal. Allows us to draft a guard in mid to late rounds and develop him. 4-5m

Malcolm Smith - he is a reserve on the most talented linebacking core in the league. Ken Norton is able to recruit over with a chance at more playing time and a raise. Sio Moore hasnít exactly been Mr. Durable and I donít want to see Miles Burris playing every snap again. 2-3 short term prove it type of deal.

Reggie Bush - Market will not be there for a RB hitting 30. Bush could thrive as 3rd down back as a willing blocker and pass catcher who is capable starting in pinches. Is also friends of Suh and used to make him feel welcomed Wink A bit of a overpay but short term with the ability to cut him in similar fashion to MJD 5m

Jabaal Sheed- bit of a miscast in a 3-4 is a more natural fit in a 4-3. Raiders overpay to sure up a huge hole on the team. His contract goes goes around 6.5 M
Spending Spree- Roughly 68.5 M. Add players with ties to the coaching staff, in trenches, from enemies, quality over quantity. Landing Suh will create a domino effect. We are going to have to overspend but we aren't to sign a new team, just a few impact players. Also we have a chance to cut bait in the future on M Smith, R Mualauga, R Bush, Blalock if we draft young talent who are ready to step up in their roles.

Players Brought Back
B Ross- a chance to start at FS
C Chekwa
R Streater
C Wilson - vet depth
T Brown - see above
L Asante
A Holmes
M King
K Sheets
I donít think Mcfadden comes back. He came back last year wanting to prove he was still the man at RB. I donít think the alpha male will allow him to come back to his team in a lesser role. He decided to go compete for a spot somewhere else.

Being active in Free Agency will finally allow us to draft BPA available.

1. Kevin White WR- I wonít be cute and trade down for alot of picks( just list guys who I like in respective rounds). The debate of Cooper and White will carry on until the draft. In my opinion Cooper is more likely to be rookie of the year as he plays like a season veteran. Comparison to Torry Holt and other fine receivers is valid. I wouldnít mind the pick, but I just think the world of White. Big, Fast, Hands, Ball skills, Work Ethic, more physically imposing. Cooper may be a cleaner route runner but that is the only aspect I see him having an edge over White. White is works on his craft can improve in that aspects, but Cooper may not be able to gain what White has. Both players are going to be good, but White has the potential to be an elite in all aspects of the game. Raiders land a true number one to pair with their franchise quarterback.
2.Dorial Green Beckham WR- Double dip in wideouts? I would if DGB is on board. Many mocks have him projected around this spot. Reggie wouldnít get as much heat taking a gamble on a player with A plus potential as a playmaker for a team that needs playmakers. White Parker Cooper are locks to go in the first, and Perriman, Devin Smith, Sammie Coates stocks have been rising. Perriman, Devin Smith, Coates would also make sense here. Our wideouts are near the bottom in the league in terms of talent. Honestly a team is a good as their QB. Carr would benefit from more targets to throw too. We fill the void of OL in free agency.
3. Denzel Perryman MLB- might be just 2 down backer in scouts eye and is but undersized so he may slide to the third. He plays with fire and a mean streak and knows how to play the game. As U may know, he is from the U
4. Lorenzo Doss CB- from a small school but played at an elite level. Comes in to compete at the corner slot which would now feature a lot of prospects.
5. Tevin Mcdonald FS - long risk gamble on a player who has flashed ability and great bloodlines. His dad Ken Norton use to run wild on the 49ers, and recruited Mcdonald in the past. People may say this is early for him, but sometimes you just go and get the prospect you want.
6. Charles Tuaau NT- Small school, big man and 6í4 330 could develop into a role player
7. Evan Washington OG- Project late rounds, he is on a couple sleeper lists

2015 Roster
Offense
QB: Carr, McGloin
RB: Murray, Bush, Sheets/Atkinson
FB: Reece, Olewale
WR: White, Holmes, DGB
WR: Streater, Jones, Butler/Thompkins
TE: Thomas, Rivera, Kasa
LT: Penn, Watson
LG: Blalock, Washington
C: Hudson, Boothe
RG: Jackson, Barnes
RT: Howard, McCants

Defense
DE: Tuck, Autry/Mayowa
DE: Sheed, Wilson
DT: Suh, Smith
NT: Jelly, Tuaau/Mcgee
Wlb: Moore, Smith
MLB: Maualuga, Perryman
SLB: Mack, Ray Ray
CB: Hayden, Brown, Doss
CB: Carrie, Mcgill, Chekwa/Thorpe
FS: Ross, Mcdonald/Dowling
SS: Woodson, Young/Asante

Specialists
Jano, King, Condo, T Jones

Reflection? People may say that is a bit optimistic in free agency, but Raiders have to spend. Others might not like two wideouts, but if they pan out.. White and DGB would be scary with Carr. 2016 we land a blue chip LT in first round.

FA looks good but no to Thomas unless he comes relatively cheap. If i sign a WR in a TE body, he better be producing high numbers. He's not.

Very nice. A bit idealistic, but the draft is great. I love Doss and the late rounders. Well done.

Obviously it could happen, but I really dont see DGB getting to the 2nd round and dont see Perryman getting to the 3rd.

I like the free agent signing, but Im not sure we will land all of those guys.

Kendricks and Mckinnely are rated higher and likely second rounders. Perry might dropped due to a so so combine combined with not ideal height. Sammi Coates Perriman and Devin Smith are all tempting in 2nd too.

Thanks, free agent DE was the one free agent slot I didn't see a connection so just went with someone to throw money at. Hardy is a better player but hard to see us land two franchise cornerstones in Hardy and Suh in one year.

Hudson and Thomas may be a reach but we have money and these slots are holes.

Not bad, don't like the addition of Julius Thomas and If we go two WR's in the draft id rather go Coop/DGB, just a preference.

Pretty much this. I would love this to happen (sans Julius Thomas and Reggie Bush) but honestly I think the more suitors that Suh gets (Redskins, Eagles, Giants, Dolphins now rumored to be in the mix) the tougher it will be to lure him here.

If our off season ends up this way I sure as hell won't be complaining.

other solid free agent MLB could be in player. Again, we have to reach the salary floor so I suspect alot of holes will be addressed in Free Agency.
