Hypothetically, if Baker/McBriar came in and won the job, there is a crowd here who would be livid about starting a mid 30's punter over King. Same w/ a vet QB taking the #2 job over Pryor. Again, they don't want it to happen.


Well, i'd rather see the young guys be able to win a spot than some mid 30s stopgaps but that has nothing to do with how much swag they might have. If they can't, then so be it.


Me too. On a rebuilding team, youth is good. But they have to earn it. Most fans have handed King the job since last years TC.

Again that had nothing to do with swag. It was cause he had a huge leg and was a much cheaper option than what we had.

Honestly kind of hoping they retracting their offer on Cribbs now. Age primarily being the reason. Probably doesnt have more than two elite years left as a returner just because of the punishment they get. Have to imagine making our depth better at WR should take priority(Butler, Vernon). If he was say 26 then ya maybe it would be worth it. Just my 2 cents.

Looks like we waived Bushell, Owusu Ansah, Shuler, Gallington, and Steiner.

We signed
CB Chance Casey Thomas
LB Eric Harper
WR Greg Hankins
TE Jeron Mastrud
DE Ryan Robinson
C Andrew Robiskie
CB Mitchell White
And claimed WR Andre Holmes.

I would post a link but I'm on my phone.

Kinda bummed we cut Bushell, I liked him.
I don't see any of them making the team. Andre Holmes seems decent.

Very surprised to see Bushell cut. Many thought he would make the final roster.

Are you really? He was an URFA for a reason. Didn't understand why people were penciling him into a roster spot.

LOL I remember people said we should draft Owusu Ansah w/ our second round pick and were pissed we didn't.

Sources tell CBS4 that free agent Charles Woodson will meet with the Broncos Wednesday.

Sad

I don't know why either. There are a couple UDFAs I might pencil in, but it's based on watching them and extrapolating their plusses and minuses into the pro game concept.
I saw nothing about the player that said Bushell would be around. And on top of that we have alot of CB players ahead of him on the depth chart. It's a much easier road onto this roster at some other positions.

I think Vernon will grab a roster spot, and I think it's reasonable to expect that to happen in the end. But it's based on the player being able to fill a role and play the pro game. Still, there's a long way to go before that happens. But he's in a much better position and a much better prospect than a guy like Bushell..

Update:
So the Raiders are upping the ante a little bit sending an initial offer for Charles Woodson already, but do the dollars make sense?
