Raider Nation should be stoked that Free Agency begins next week. Our team finally has the cap space and winning culture to sign almost anyone that we want. However, remember that there are levels to attacking free agency. Check out some quick hits on free agents that the Raiders should consider.
Too Good to Get
This group of guys would be awesome, but they’re probably worth more than the Raiders would pay. they were each connected to rumors about getting the franchise tag, so their team should look to re-sign them. Then again, the Raiders are off their first playoff season in more than a decade. Could marquee players finally give us discounts? Guess we will find out.
These are the guys that fit the team need. They should be in the Raiders price range. Can Oakland make it happen for our Super Bowl Run?
These guys are great fits too. They don’t have the same name or production as anyone above, but they are more cost efficient. That is what Reggie McKenzie likes anyways.
If we have to give the money to someone or we must fill a roster need, then these are the guys you call. They have a different combination of question marks including age, price, scheme-fit and injuries. However, they might be worth a gamble if they are available late in the process.
Guys to Stay away from
I made an entire post for them. These are the guys who don’t make sense for our team and culture. They can leak anonymous connections to our franchise or have their agents call us, but we should probably not return that call. Check out the full list here:
Did I forget anybody? Let me know via Twitter.
