Wow. Another Manning inspired thread. In no way is that old or overkill.

Yes, we only have 50 million in cap space and Manning will clearly need all that ... is there a mercury problem with the water in your area?

When free agency started today, Raiders had a league-low $639.966 worth of salary-cap space

Personally, i'm glad that we aren't going after guys like Mario Williams or dude from Tennessee that was vastly overpaid. We are going after the guys you would think we would go after. As far as I'm concerned it's a pretty weak free agent class. The draft is where teams build teams.

At least we will still have our draft choices left to use. Who are you going to take in the 5th round this year?

Is this a joke? Manning is going to arguably be overpaid more than any other FA.

The article states you have 36m and haven't done crap with it... Now, you are going to drop probably more than HALF on an old banged up QB... and do what with the rest?

So by "screwed", you meant "too much cap room"?

The whole point of the thread is that Manning is keeping us from other free agents.. i'm simply saying that, Manning or no manning, i'm glad that we did not sign anyone that has already been signed, especially for the money some of these guys are getting. I guess i'm saying that if the front office is smart, Manning probably isn't keeping them from anyone.

As far as people we are "going after," did we not attempt to meet with Solai, Adams, and Tolbert? I'd say those are pretty smart moves and i highly doubt that Manning has had anything to do with us being unable to sign either of them so far.

EXACTLY!!!

Sheesh... was it that hard to understand? And if you "do" get manning - that's basically it for top players that are out there. Who are you going to get to "protect" Manning? He's not used to getting sacked over 30 times a game!!!

Are Denver players willing to restructure?

The point is that they haven't really gone after any of those guys. If you really want to get a guy you don't schedule his visit AFTER you wait a few days. You bring him in for a visit. You recruit him. The ONLY one they have done that for is Manning.

Bunkley is now important to sign just to maintain the same level of D-line play. They should be talking to him and trying to get him into the offices to sign. Maybe they are , but they sure aren't making any noise.

I agree that the first wave of signings got too much money , and you can lie in the weeds a bit. But there should be some players they are actually targetting, and talking to at a higher level than phone calls.

Just like the playoffs the Raiders will stay home for the NFL Draft!
• Oakland traded this years first round pick Cincinnati for Palmer
• The Second round pick to New England during 2011 draft.
• The Third round pick was used on Terrelle Pryor.
• The Fouth round pick to Washington for Jason Campbell.
• The Seventh round pick to Seattle for Aaron Curry
