Ofcourse we will thank one of the best players at his position in the entire league history for doing great things with absolutely terrible teams around him. Never complained once and was always a reliable player.

Welp, if it wasn't clear already, the Raiders are now rebuilding. Letting their best player walk like that.


I'm pretty sure they've been rebuilding since Rich Gannon left.

Why would he when Al Davis paid him $4 million a year to punt a ball? [In 2009 he signed a 4-year, $16 million deal]

Not intentionally Laughing

We should have tried to rebuild. Instead, Al Davis tried reloading with overpriced veterans and traded high picks for players.

So glad we're finally "rebuilding".

Al had a tendency for rewarding "his" guys. Only time Lechler really spoke out was when we fired Cable IIRC. He was frustrated with the continuous cycle of replacing coaches.

Eh. McFadden is their best player IMO. Even though he's always injured. But yeah, Lechler was one of their best.

Anyway, it will be odd to see someone else punting for the Raiders now. I wonder if they sign a UFA or draft one. I'd think the Raiders aren't in a position to be drafting a punter right now but I could be wrong and knowing them they might do just that.

Lechler was there for so long he was part of the team that went to the Super Bowl against the Bucs and lost. Shocked Didn't realize he was on that team. That was years ago.

I really hate how the Texans are just overloading their roster with future HoFers right now Crying or Very sad

Wait, is Lechler a future HOFer? If not, then I rephrase the above to:

I really hate how the Texans are just overloading their roster with guys who were the best at their positions in 2009 right now Crying or Very sad

Oakland already has Lechler's replacement on their roster. His name is Marquette King.

Ah I see. I didn't even realize they had another punter. Easy to see why they let him go.
