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. Promote this thread!

It reminds me of when Al would just sign Super Bowl MVPs off the scrap heap (Desmond Howard, Larry Brown). Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates? MORONS!!!

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. - StingArmy
brick Bockwurst Since: 17.1.02 From: Pittsburgh, PA Since last post: 1570 days Last activity: 1566 days # 4 Posted on 6.11.08 0756.58 | Instant Rating: 4.00 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.

The NFLPA has been sitting in and advising on this since it's been in play a couple of weeks ago, and I doubt that Goodall would make a move like this unless he consulted with Gene Upshaw beforehand.
