Yea, but I am not sure Flynn will be the answer either.

If Flynn deal doesn’t work out, Raiders have interest in Kolb
Posted by Michael David Smith on March 30, 2013, 6:49 AM EDT

Despite the talk that a trade sending quarterback Matt Flynn from the Seahawks to the Raiders was imminent on Friday night, it still hasn’t happened as of Saturday morning. And if it doesn’t happen, the Raiders may have a Plan B in Kevin Kolb.

Adam Caplan reported that the Raiders have discussed signing Kolb, the free agent quarterback who was cut by the Cardinals this month.

The issue may be that the Raiders, who have just $2.8 million in cap space, will want Flynn to restructure his contract as part of a trade from the Seahawks. If Flynn refuses, the Raiders may try to get Kolb to sign a deal that will cost less on their salary cap in 2013 than Flynn would cost under his current contract.

The arrival of either Flynn or Kolb would lead to the departure of Carson Palmer, who now appears unlikely to play for the Raiders this season. The Raiders traded a first-round pick and a second-round pick for Palmer, who gave them a total of 24 starts, in which they went 8-16. Which doesn’t exactly instill a lot of confidence in Raiders fans about the wisdom of giving up more draft picks for Flynn.

Which may mean signing Kolb is a better move.

Flynn has upside and I would love to see him in Oakland.  I honestly think Kolb has the talent, but he is so flipping injury prone that I would be less thrilled to see him over Flynn.  I have two teams. Oakland and New Orleans.  I think it has been ordained that they can not be good at the same time.

Flynn is definitely the better choice. I am not at all impressed with Kolb and you better hope they don't take him. Flynn has played great every time he has played, and he did lead LSU to a national title. The guy can legit play.

I'm surprised the Jets haven't tried to trade for him. Maybe a Sanchez for Flynn swap (depending on the numbers)?

Why are the Raiders looking for a QB?

They got Terrelle Pryor, the wunder QB.

Brent Grimes strikes deal with Dolphins
Posted by Mike Florio on March 30, 2013, 11:11 AM EDT

Franchised a year ago by the Falcons, cornerback Brent Grimes was a free agent in 2013.

And now he’s no longer a free agent.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Grimes has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Dolphins.

The contract is worth $5.5 million, which puts him near the top of this year’s pathetic cornerback market — and which gives him another crack at getting paid again in 2014.  Of that amount, the base value if $5 million; $500,000 comes from per-game roster bonuses.

The deal also includes a $2.25 million signing bonus, and $750,000 of the base salary is guaranteed.  That results in a total guarantee of $3 million.

Grimes tore an Achilles tendon in the first week of the 2013 regular season.  Coupled with the fact that he’ll be 30 later this year, interest wasn’t as high as it could have been, but he still did well in relation to the market at large.

For the Dolphins, the amount counts fully against the 2013 cap.  But that’s not a problem, given that they structured all of the new multi-year deals to have minimal cap consequences in the current year.

Grimes is not that good. The Falcons D is a weak link. Need a few more LB's, a pass rush, and some DB's that will tackle.

This is why the Bills are a complete joke.

Flynn’s a Raider for ’14 fifth and a conditional pick
Posted by Darin Gantt on April 1, 2013, 1:37 PM EDT

The Seahawks just announced the Matt Flynn-to-Oakland trade, and what they got most of all was cap relief.

The team announced that they’ll receive a 2014 fifth-round pick and a conditional pick in 2015 in exchange for their backup quarterback. So, nothing this year other than Flynn’s $5.25 million salary off the books.

For the Raiders, getting Flynn in for what amounts to nothing this year helps, as they had a depleted stash of picks.

The Raiders lack their own second-rounder and fifth-rounder from previous trades with the Bengals and Seahawks for Carson Palmer and Aaron Curry, respectively.

McCoy deal essentially for a seventh
Posted by Darin Gantt on April 1, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

In case you were wondering how eager the Browns were to get rid of Colt McCoy to keep from paying their third-stringer $1.5 million (as Florio pointed out earlier), here’s your answer.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, the 49ers obtained McCoy and the Browns sixth-round pick in exchange for their fifth- and seventh-round picks, which Florio has also confirmed.

So that’s the 164th overall pick and the 237th in exchange for the 173rd and a warm body, so they moved down nine spots and threw in a seventh to get a guy to back up Colin Kaepernick.

That leaves the 49ers with a paltry 13 draft picks to use this year.

Colts, Darrius Heyward-Bey agree
Posted by Mike Wilkening on April 1, 2013, 9:42 PM EDT

The wait is over. Indeed, the Colts have added a wide receiver.

The club has agreed to terms with ex-Raiders wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey, the team said Monday night. Owner Jim Irsay, who had made no secret that the club had zeroed in on a wideout, linked to the announcement on Twitter.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Heyward-Bey’s deal is for one year and as much as $3 million.

The 26-year-old Heyward-Bey caught 41 passes for 606 yards and five TDs for Oakland in 2012. He could help the Colts replace Donnie Avery, who signed with Kansas City in free agency. Heyward-Bey, who has gained 14.8 yards per catch in his four-year NFL career, was released earlier in the offseason.

Heyward-Bey is the latest addition to an Indianapolis free-agent class that Irsay already liked quite a bit.

Redskins, DeAngelo Hall reunite
Posted by Mike Wilkening on April 1, 2013, 10:09 PM EDT

DeAngelo Hall won’t be changing teams after all.

Hall has agreed to a one-year contract to return to the Redskins, Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C. reported Monday night.

The Redskins, who have had some salary-cap issues to sort through, released the 29-year-old Hall three weeks ago. He has started every game the last three seasons for Washington.

In some ways, Hall’s career epitomizes the high-risk, high-reward nature of the position he plays. He has had some outstanding games, grabbed 39 interceptions in nine NFL seasons and signed multiple lucrative multi-year contracts. However, both the Falcons and Raiders cut ties with him before he landed in Washington in 2008.

Hall, who was only 20 years old when he played his first NFL game for Atlanta in 2004, does not turn 30 until November.

Raiders have no answer.
If the league dissolved the Raiders and the NFL held a dispersal draft there might be only 6 or 7 players worth having on your team.
