I am in no way advocating dealing for Huff but I don't think that Oakland's personnel evaluation is exactly "world class." Honestly, I think I'd be more inclined to take a chance on a player discarded by an organization with such a shoddy history of personnel evaluation as opposed to a castoff from a team like the patriots. If the pats let someone go, there's probably something wrong with them or they want way too much money. The raiders are just incompetent.

(isn't great to have a team like the Raiders in the league so we can feel better about the skins!)

Re: PFT: Raiders shopping Michael Huff

I remember him from the Texas v. USC title game, he is definitely a good player but why are they getting rid of him so early? First warning sign, although it is the Raiders. I think we have to ideal safeties right now. Reed seems to me like what they thought Archulata was suppose to be, but without the heavy contract. I think we go with something in another post, get a savvy veteran to use in nickel and dime situations who may also tutor the Landry and Doughty. Just my opinion.

Also Freddyg12 your forgetting that if Huff screws up we can release him without any cap penelty since the Raiders will get charged for the signing bonus. Making us responsible only for his base salary.

Yet still, please find another source.
I feel you & others on the source, this doesn't sound like a viable story. Then again, it's Al Davis & he's getting crazier, e.g., writing a resignation letter for his coach.

As for the cap hit, I think you're right that all of Huff's bonus would accelerate to the Raiders cap as dead money, but I don't know that we wouldn't take any cap hit by cutting him. If we inherit the contract & he's due a roster bonus, we'd have to pay him or cut him & take the same dead money cap hit. It all depends on his contract & the deal the two teams work out, but to my knowledge I don't think there's much chance that you could acquire Huff w/out having a significant cap impact.

Re: PFT: Raiders shopping Michael Huff

Oh my god, am I the only one who thinks we need to find a way to take Kenny Phillips with #21? He even looks like ST. It's an omen. He's from Miami, he's the same size, and faster. I think he could be even better. THE U is starting to try to emulate that style of FS, and thats what I'm talking about. LaRon Landry, and Kenny Philips. WTF is wrong with that? Trade next years second round, and maybe a third round just to make it a done deal, and get Roy Williams. WR problems done. Second round take a cb if we must, or whatever. third and later rounds get some DL and OL help. You can draft a GREAT offensive unit in the later rounds. Two GREAT safeties would take some coverage pressure off Smoot, and Rogers. We don't need a CB. WR, and another breaout safety, we'll be set.

Can't argue w/Phillips' talent & he's one of many on the draft wish list, but I would hope that they don't get phillips. IF he's there at #21 it might be too good to pass up. He's the only impact safety in the draft by most rankings, so he's not likely to be there.

I think Doughty showed he can play SS & is a good in the box safety. I think a vet. or a late round guy that excels in coverage is needed. I would like to see Prioleau come back too.

Re: PFT: Raiders shopping Michael Huff

safety is not a huge priority.

DE, WR, OL, & CB are our hig priority targets. I thought we all knew that. Taking anything ther than those positions in the 1st round would be counter productive.

First of all (this is something I believe I need to emphasize on), nobody and I mean NOBODY could ever be better than Sean Taylor.. He was one of a kind, a size of LB and speed of CB.. All WRs including TO and Randy Moss were afraid of Sean..

Second, I just watched Kenny Phillips' highlights.. He looks good, I have to admit.. But to tell you truth, I would prefer if we go after Brandon Flowers.. He really impressed me.. But I would not mind if we go after Phillips too, only if Flowers is taken before us..

Third, Rogers won't be ready until maybe middle of Sept - depends on his recover progressing. So, unless we sign a nickel back through free agency, we need to draft a CB.. Especially when Springs might not be back for 2009 season..

For those people who wants to see Kenny Phillips' highlights or Brandon Flowers'..

Def the best prospect. They compare him to both Sean Taylor and Ed Reed. They say he has the awareness, hitting ability and size of Taylor, and the quickness and coverage skills of Reed. Dynamite player. I never said he WAS better than ST, I'm just saying he might be something close, or even as good. Maybe coached to be a little better.

Re: PFT: Raiders shopping Michael Huff

Also, after Sweed re-inventing himself at the Combine, I'm not too sold on Campbell. We should go after Sweed if Vinny has something to do with it. He's young, and I'm sure that wrist is fine. He ran super at the combine. He got moved up from early second round, to middle first. Limas Sweed baby!

I do not see that WR is a huge priority. DL, OL, CB and Safety are a priority more so that WR.
We have a ton of money tied up on current WR's, some that have not panned out. Throwing more money at WR is a luxury not a serious need like DE or OG where we are thin and old. Yes Brandon Lloyd has been a bust, but WR's are available all the time. A good/young safety is not that easy to find.

Phillips could be a stud here, but I doubt seeing him around at 21...

I think Safety is a HUGE priority. Let's take a look at the Safeties we currently have on our roster:
LaRon Landry- We all know this kid is going to be good for years to come.
After Landry the talent drastically drops....
Reed Doughty- Showed some promise last year, but I am not sold on him being a starter. I think Doughty is more suited for a backup role.
Vernon Fox- Career special teams player. Decent backup safety.
Pierson Prioleau- Free Agent that will probably follow GW to Jacksonville.
Omar Stoutmire- Free Agent who is 33 years old, and likely to be gone.
So if Prioleau, and Stoutmire depart that leaves us with 3 safeties two of whom (Doughty,Fox) probably are not starting caliber safeties in this leauge. Even if Doughty was able to prove himself and start this year we would still need to add at least one more safety for depth. So I think either way you look at it we need to address the safety position.
