    LB's Kyle Wilber and Emmanuel Lamur (?).

    KR/WR Patterson to New England. Raiders get 5th round draft choice swapped for their 6th round.

    WR Ryan Grant due in for a visit...

    Kinda sucks about Patterson unless the plan is to get Richard back there again.

    ...saves $3.25 mil cap space hit which from reports is termed to be huge. Yes, Richard is expected to do the returns again.

    I liked Patterson out of the backfield. He had some long runs out of the backfield. A couple of TD's I believe off them. Patterson as a receiver? Not much.

    i would have rather kept Patterson than gone after Jordy Nelson tbh


    i DO love the Rashan Melvin and Shareece Wright signings...i like Melvin...definitely an upgrade to our corners

    now i'd like to find a MLB in the draft and pay #52

    I was for keeping Crabtree... He was clutch. I don't know effective Nelson will be. It was essentially the same contract for both but Nelson's was a bigger guarantee.

    Patterson? I'm sure Gruden would have found ways to utilize him.

    MLB? Roquan Smith...

    The cap is important, but we definitely give up something in the return game. Like four or more yards per return :(

    Olawale and a 6th for a 5th. Wow.

    That Olawale move is a bit of a blow, in my view.

    Gruden wants to establish the running game... A fullback clearing the way for the halfback. That sort of thing.

    WR Grant not a signing... Eric Decker for a visit? Allen Hurns?

    Suh visiting on Wednesday... Doubt we sign him for his hefty asking price.

    Update: Suh leaves Oakland without a contract (might as well). :)

    On the bright side, added Emmanuel Lamur - LB.

    Lamur is 29, has started 15 games - all for Cincy, while seeing action in all 32 over the last two seasons for Minnesota. He has two INTs, 1 FF, and has defended 12 passes. He actually had a strong 2014, and that was under current DC Guenther.

    We look to be adding solid if not splashy signings...

    I just found out that Melvin is 6-2. I always liked long, rangy corners. Haynes...Asomugha...Routt. Conley is 6-0.

    WR Decker...left with no contract.

    In order of importance...imo. :)
    MLB (Bowman's still out there...)
    DT - Ellis and Vanderdoes? Not enough.
    T (Left) - Penn's heir apparent
    WR - ?
    RB - Lynch and Martin...good for at least one season or maybe two.
    DB - we're set...at least for this upcoming season.

    AFC West nooz... Just found out that Siemian was traded to Minny. No back-up for the Broncs except Osweiller? Mahomes is unproven though is highly touted. Chargers still has the Javelin thrower in Rivers.

    SI Mock Draft:

    10. Oakland: Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia
    Another fit I’ve loved for a while, this is where “best player available” meets a crying need for a team. Smith has potential, as a middle linebacker, to emerge as the nerve center of a defense for a decade.
