Cap casualty season: Here are some likely big-name victims


Carson Palmer, Raiders ($13 million base salary): There is no way Oakland is going to pay him that kind of money to stay, sources said, and Palmer will have to decide how much cash he's willing to walk away from to stay.

Darius Heyward-Bey, Raiders ($7.7 million): He flashed progress in 2011 but had another lost year in 2012. The Raiders are again in a roster/cap crunch and are still trying to get out from under bad contracts. I can't fathom him making this to stay.

Rolando McClain, Raiders ($4 million): He has been nothing but trouble off field, was basically sent home for the final quarter of last season and I would expect the Raiders to look to recoup some signing bonus as well when they officially part with him.

Raiders will lower seating capacity

Posted by Michael David Smith on February 6, 2013, 2:07 PM EST

The Raiders are taking a page out of the Jaguars’ playbook, not on the field but in the stands.

In what is being termed a “capacity adjustment,” the Raiders are planning to block off many upper-deck seats, CSNBayArea.com reports. The move is reminiscent of the tarps the Jaguars have put up in their stadium, blocking off thousands of seats that they’re unable to sell.

Although it is not yet known how many seats the Raiders will block off, it will likely give the Raiders the NFL’s lowest seating capacity. The Raiders already had the second-lowest capacity at 63,132, higher only than the Bears, who can seat 61,500 at Soldier Field.

The Raiders are expected to close “Mount Davis,” the upper deck addition that was part of the deal that got the Raiders to move back to Oakland from Los Angeles in 1996. That addition, which blocked the view of the Oakland hills that was long considered one of the nicest features of the Oakland Coliseum, has long been controversial, and the “Mount Davis” nickname was a shot at the late Raiders owner Al Davis.

The Raiders have frequently struggled to sell tickets in Oakland, and most of their home games have been blacked out. In 2012 they had only one blackout, thanks in part to the new NFL rule that allowed teams to lift blackouts while selling only 85 percent of their tickets

Raiders | To lower stadium seating capacity
Thu, 07 Feb 2013 05:14:21 -0800

The Oakland Raiders are planning to block off 28 sections of the upper deck at O.co Coliseum. The Coliseum's capacity for Raiders games will drop from 64,200 to 53,200, making it the facility with the fewest seats in the NFL.com

Basically another new low for this team. Mount Davis is a joke. Team is a joke. Fanbase is certainly a joke. If ever contraction was needed you could wipe away this team and its filth and no one would care. They already lost 1/4 of their Bay Area fanbase jumping to the niners. And the rest can't make that jump cause it infringes on their gang ties.

Raiders Cut Heyward Bey,David Tollefson and Michael Huff

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...cut-by-raiders

Huff would be a decent depth add at Safety...

Carson Palmer and Darren McFadden are next and with 33 million in dead cap space they will be in the red until the 2016 season.

Houston gave former Raiders free-agent punter Shane Lechler a three-year contract. Lechler returns home to Houston.

The Seahawks have been looking to move Flynn this offseason after Russell Wilson emerged as a start performer during his rookie year. Flynn is scheduled to earn $5.25 million this coming season, according to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times, and moving him would create a salary cap saving of $3.25 million.

But complicating the matter, O’Neil reports, is the fact that the Raiders are without second- and fifth-round picks this year, so they might hesitate trading another one. That makes it possible Flynn would be traded for a 2014 draft pick(s). Given Flynn’s contract status and his relative inexperience, as well as a lack of high demand, Seattle probably will not get too much in return.

I'd draft a QB in the second round of this draft before I'd give up a 2014 draft pick for Flynn...

I thought the price tag on the Palmer trade was comical, but I still can't hardly believe he flamed out as epically as he did.

But wait, there's more!


Quote:
“Even still, this signing would be a head scratcher. The Raiders are set to pay Carson Palmer $13 million in base salary with a cap hit of $15 million. If cut, palmer leaves behind over $9 million in dead money. Add Flynn’s $5.25 cap hit and it works out to be about the same cap hit for Flynn as for Palmer. Then add the lost draft pick from the trade for Flynn which the Seahawks are said to be asking for a round four pick and the Raiders lose out on this deal.”

QB Matt Flynn still has not been traded to the Raiders. The snag seems to be salary cap related. Flynn will have to reconstruct his contract in order to go to the Raiders and he may be unwilling to do so. His current deal gives the Raiders approximately a $7M cap hit next season and an $8M cap hit the following season. Word has it the Raiders may aggressively go after Kevin Kolb should they not be able to land Matt Flynn.

The Oakland Raiders will sign quarterback Seneca Wallace to a contract, CBSSports.com reported Wednesday.

Wallace, a longtime backup and part-time starter for the Seattle Seahawks and the Cleveland Browns during his career, would back up recently acquired Matt Flynn in Oakland. Wallace did not play in the NFL last season.

The Raiders decided on Wallace, 32, after several quarterbacks recently worked out for the team. Among those was Tyler Thigpen, whom the Seahawks considered before settling on Brady Quinn as their backup to Russell Wilson. Seattle also reportedly had interest in Wallace.

The addition of a backup makes quarterback Terrelle Pryor’s status uncertain in Oakland. The former Ohio State quarterback has struggled in brief appearances with the Raiders, but it’s possible the Raiders would look to Wallace to mentor Pryor.

one of the busiest positions in Oakland. He will be missed by the Raiders.

If the Raiders need more backup ex-Seattle QBs, the Chargers can trade them Whitehurst as well.
