I read today that the Raiders released one of their starting CBs, Pat Lee. The guy is listed at 6'0" and 200Lbs. From what I have read his play has been pretty solid this year. Do you think we should take a serious look at him?

If his play was solid this year he wouldnt have gotten cut.

Get him to fling poo more accurately and make better decisions when flinging it?

Here is the link to the article:

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/11/10/report-raiders-cutting-starter-pat-lee/

As I said, he hadn't been identified as playing poorly. He might be worth a look considering our lack of depth.

Who?

Honestly as bad as I think this secondary is they are playing great as a unit because there is some odd chemistry.

No need to disrupt that for someone unless it is a great player IMO.

This guy was cut by Raiders who are not exactly loaded with talent. No thanks

He played for the Packers for 3 or 4 years before joining the raiders. If we were willing to look at Stanford Routt it seems like he should get a look also.

What scheme do they play? Was it a case of him being better suited for a different defense like Houston was?

Better player coming off of IR.

You dont go from starter to cut just because a better player is coming off IR. Sure if QB, K or P where they are shallow. DB you carry a bunch.

He simply is not that good

I was just going off of what an article said. Other corners below him may have had some guaranteed money that their GM wouldn't want to be on the hook for.

I do agree that he probably isn't that good.

He was pretty awful when with the Packers. Not sure about this year but I don't think we need to add anything to our CB spot right now unless a stud becomes available. When Florence comes off the IR, we can cut Alphonso and be fine. Or let Greenwood get some snaps.

Greenwood is done for the year.

He had the worst sequence of Kick Returns I have ever seen against us last year. Not sure what he brings in terms of coverage.

Where does that leave us for corners?

Houston
Green
Florence
Lacey
Smith

I think another addition wouldn't be bad depending on who it is. I don't want Lee tho.

Routt would be good.
