Raiders Shopping Terdell Sands

It's Fourth of July weekend, and most NFL teams aren't working.

The Raiders, however, have been tending to one last item of business.

Per a league source, the Raiders have been shopping defensive tackle Terdell Sands.

The problem? A $1 million roster bonus, the trigger date for which has been moved at least once during the offseason. (Most recently, the deadline was nudged on June 23, from June 24 to July 3.)

At last count, the roster bonus is due today, and that means that unless they have moved the due date again, they'll owe him the full amount if he was still on the roster as of 4:00 p.m. EDT.

Sands, signed as a free agent in 2003, is (was) signed through 2010. He appeared in every game last season, with no starts. The prior year, he started eleven games.

Sands played for the Chiefs in 2003 and the Packers in 2001, where he entered the league as a seventh-round draft pick. He was out of football in 2002.


Remember that one season when He played Hard? If he were ever to do that again he might be worth something.

even if he were a good player, and we were interested there is basically no chance Oakland would trade with us.

Well, we traded Gerald Warren to them a few years back.
