He signed an extension with the Raiders after a 5-11 season in 2008

Worst case scenario happened last year. I think they want to put warm bodies in the middle of the DL and generate a pass rush from the DE's and LB's.

Fox seemed to like to do that at Carolina and we have some young guys with some upside at DT that would be fine during this transition year.

I am fine if they fill out the team with some quality depth and reload next offseason for the playoff push.

Though it's an impossibility, given the fact that we literally do not have enough DTs on the roster today to even field a defense for an entire game, I think it would be pretty freaking hilarious if they did just this.

I was hoping the Raiders would Bush or Miller walk. Bush would be great in Denver paired with Tebow.

That's it in a nut shell. If we are going to spend the money then spend it on a good player like Aso. Fox does a very good job of getting the most out of DT's. Some posted on here before he is like the Mike Shannahan of DT's.

I think if we could land Aso we could try and trade Goodman to a team that needs a DB like Houston or the Lions.

This would make sense Fox likes to run it down the Ds throat.

He's done said he wants to play for a contender so that excludes Denver besides they need to sign some big D-linemen to go with the new lb's and safeties

24 year old with 11.5 sacks. You can never have enough pass rushers. Find the DTs in the draft or bargain shop for those guys. Don't overpay for a Mebane or Cofield.
Cant see it to be honest. We have Dumervil pocketing $14m this year, Miller when he reports pocketing some nice change to initially be a passrusher and Ayers who the coaches feel will fit a 4-3 defense better. I'd be shocked if we throw much money at DE unless it's depth. The priorities will likely be DT, RB and maybe OL, can't see much money going elsewhere, you never though, this is Denver afterall.

It's been rumoured we're going to make a run at Bush or the Bengal back. De'Angelo will be looking for a huge deal.

Benson? Won't he be looking for a big deal as well? Jerious Norwood, Kevin Smith, or Brandon Jackson would be worth a look at.

Remember when we all wanted him?

Quote:
It's not fair to say that Asomugha's been a bust in Philadelphia, since he has put together stretches of above-average play and helped make the life of opposite corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie easier. But when the Eagles signed Asomugha, they weren't signing a guy playing at that level; they went into the market and gave Asomugha a five-year, $60 million deal expecting to get Nnamdi Asomugha, the guy who shut down an entire side of the field for the Raiders for three years. Since he arrived in town, it has felt like we've all been waiting for the real Nnamdi to show up, like he's some schematic change or settling-in period away from being the superstar cornerback most everyone expected him to be. After Jones made him look so ordinary on Sunday, it feels easier to just accept that he's never going to be that player in Philadelphia.
