While other people were distracted with the small matter of a national election, Al Davis has apparently decided now's the time to go cut crazy (msn.foxsports.com)

I'm not the biggest fan of Hall (makes picks, but gets toasted often) but I'm pretty sure this team had bigger problems to address.

Interesting to note that in his letter to Kiffin, the one big money FA Davis claimed Lane didn't want was Gibril Wilson, who now looks like being the only one who'll stick.

I guess Hall won't be without work for long given the number of teams with sucky CBs. Getting cut tends to be A Bad Thing. Getting cut by the Raiders, not so much.

Another $70 million well spent by the Raiders. It reminds me of when Al would just sign Super Bowl MVPs off the scrap heap (Desmond Howard, Larry Brown).

Technically they only paid him $8 million (or was it $7 million?), although they do take a cap hit. Having said that, I don't think anyone in that office knows what is going on right now.

Financially the move makes sense (not trading for him and signing him to a top CB deal in the 1st place, but cutting him). His level of play was not going to equal the investment the team made in him, and why take the risk of him getting injured and being on the hook for another 16 million.

Unfortunately, well if you are a Raider fan, this seems to have caused more chaos in the locker room as Nnamdi has come out against the move. Any any progress that may have been made in freeing up more money to resign him next year may have been wasted as he may no longer (if he wanted to in the 1st place) want to remain on the team.

...and he's going to the Redskins!

1 year at the minimum salary is a pretty sweet deal for them. It's a can't lose deal for the team.

They could lose if he gets put out there and gets burned like he was in Oakland. :P

Having been to the 1998 game at Veterans Stadium in South Philly, I can tell you that, yes, the game will likely be a blowout.
