Oakland is a good place to land. Up and coming defense and lots of chances to make plays and see the field.

Imagine he will be used at WLB on passing downs. Tarver loves to dial up various blitzes, so if he can rush the A gap, Tarver will find ways to let him do so.

I'd rather put Sio at WLB since he's versatile but I don't think they're gonna do that.

Our Hall of Famer should hopefully be a good fit for us. I admit, he's a good player all kidding aside (even though it's too much fun Smile ) and on our young defense which is looking like they're really coming into their own, he will hopefully put forth effort to make his claims.

I just hope Tarver doesn't get a head coaching gig any time soon.....

After two fat blokes rolled him onto the floor? Nah he is fine, ask Alex Smith and Eric Fisher.

You still bitter about that loss Laughing You cry more than Phyliss.

Nice pickup for the Raiders and a nice spot to land for Wilson.

Love his chances in Oakland. He's got the athleticism they look for and he's also got a nice skill set. He could play MLB and have the athleticism to cover, or play OLB, or even as a "Joker" in pass rush.

I can't believe New Orleans let him go. He had tons of potential coming out of the draft and still seemed to have it. Just seems he couldn't find his niche there. Hopefully he will in Oakland.

I can.

He's immensely talented with tons of potential, but he just can't do it here. Admittedly, he's changed schemes 3 times in 3 years, and played 3 different positions (ILB, DE, OLB) but he's not working out here. He just can't do it. He looked good as a pass rusher last season in short spurts, but this year he's looked baaaaad.

Freak athlete. Tight hips. That doesn't equate to a great pass rusher. He could, however, be a very good ILB and I don't understand why Ryan didn't utilize him there more but oh well. He knows better than we do.

Bilikudi was actually solid DT rotation, but its a position we have decent depth at.

Not sure we needed another LBer. Move to 3-4 could be in the pipeline.

We need a pass rush threat. Tarver loves to send blitzes and right now Sio isn't the immediate impact player and Allen is trying to turn into a pass rusher.

I think he's gonna be a nice fit in Tarver's hybrid scheme.

Honestly you're right, i didnt read the 2nd part. I was really shocked that someone with that athletic ability was dropped so quickly, but i guess it makes sense sense alot of people were wondering why he fell so much farther than expected
