Today Tampa Bay cut longtime right guard Davin Joseph. Should he be a priority free agent target for Reggie McKenzie? It was announced today that the Buccaneers have cut guard Davin Joseph, whom they drafted in 2006 out of the University of Oklahoma. Joseph started 12 games as a rookie and was a fixture...

The Raiders can’t catch a break. They gave their roster a good shake and dumped it last offseason, with the promise of being first in the food line at the 2014 free agency buffet. And they are first, with $64.9 million available under the salary cap. But the other team’s plates are bigger than expected, with the NFL announcing last week that the salary cap is up $10 million from last year, to $133 million. The extra $10 million hurts the Raiders’ chances of landing top-tier free agents, it would seem, as teams that were better than 8-24 the last two seasons can get closer – close...

Former Colts general manager and ESPN analyst Bill Polian said Wednesday he expected either tackle Jared Veldheer or right end Lamarr Houston to receive a franchise tag, given the Raiders stated preference for bring back their own players and their room under the salary cap. The Raiders are presumably negotiating with both players in hopes […]

Despite the most salary cap room in the NFL, the Raiders declined to use the franchise tag Monday on either left tackle Jared Veldheer or defensive end Lamarr Houston. When the 1 p.m. deadline (PST) came and went, Veldheer and Houston were five days away from being able to negotiate with other teams for their […]

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie wants to get long-term deals with left tackle Jared Veldheer and defensive end Lamarr Houston, but didn’t panic by signing either to the franchise-tag deadline at 1 p.m. Monday. McKenzie has another week to try and get them signed before they hit free agency next Monday. Both players have said they want to come back, but I would say Veldheer is a little stronger in that conviction. Their agents obviously want to test the free-agent market. By signing either Veldheer or Houston to the franchise tag, McKenzie would have locked one up. But the price was...
One of the offseason priorities of the Oakland Raiders should be to nab a veteran quarterback.
Oakland is on its "last chance" huh? That's some tough talk from Raiders owner Mark Davis.
The Raiders badly want to return to respectability, and the quickest way is to find a strong starting quarterback.

The Raiders re-signed veteran offensive lineman Khalif Barnes on Friday afternoon, giving him a one-year contract for the sixth straight time. Barnes, 31, moved from right tackle to left tackle last season when Jared Veldheer tore his triceps. He didn’t embarrass himself at that demanding spot, and then moved to left guard when Veldheer returned in Week 12. Barnes started all 16 games. He is the first of the team’s 18 prospective unrestricted free agents to be re-signed. “There are some unfinished things we have to do here,” Barnes said in a statement. “I want to be a part of the...

The Raiders re-signed veteran offensive lineman Khalif Barnes on Friday, making Barnes the first of the team’s 18 prospective unrestricted free agents to be locked up before free agency begins.

The Raiders want to bring back safety Charles Woodson, but at what price. The free agent said Thursday on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he is prepared to hang them up if he doesn’t think the offer is fair. “I think at this point, if the right numbers don’t come across, for myself and from the team’s standpoint, then it is a serious consideration at this point that I could have played my last season in the NFL,” Woodson said. “So that’s definitely something that I think about. I do plan on playing another year. Hopefully something can get done with the Raiders but if not then I’ve...

Mark Davis is a big sports fan, but he has never been to see the Giants play at Pac Bell Park. “I would be jealous,” the Oakland Raiders owner said Sunday. Davis needs a new stadium, but his team is stuck with weathered and beaten down Oakland Coliseum for another season, playing its early-season games on grass and dirt thanks to the Oakland A’s infield. Here is the second part of our 1-on-1 with Davis at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. We discussed the city of Oakland’s “last chance,” Coliseum City and other possible sites– and he didn’t mention Los Angeles once: Any recent...
