    No cap room for Clabo according to Kevin Acee and why would you even think of bringing in the pain in the *** that McClain is

    Because mcclain can play. And play good. We could pair him with butler and be set on ilb for years. It would also Takeaway from having to draft one.

    McClain was a bust, both on the field and off.

    Really depends on what he's asking for. McClain is just a moron - sorry, I'm not saying we need a team of all choirboys, but a guy who is enough of an idiot to mug for the cameras while being handcuffed and put into a police car is truly too stupid to be trusted.

    And Clabo... it'll be interesting to see what he gets. It's a buyers market for RT's right now and I don't expect that to change until after the draft. I'll be shocked if any of the FA ROT's right now (Winston, Clabo, and Smith) get more than the AAV that Winston got from the Chiefs last year ($5.5m) as teams just aren't that interested in paying a premium for the position (and Clabo's no spring chicken either at 31). Cutting Clary only frees up $600k, and I'm not even convinced that Clabo would sign for the $4 million base that Clary's due this year.

    I agree with Acee, the money just doesn't look to be there, particularly if this club has aspirations of getting an extension with Butler done this year.

    Also something to add, is that Teleco CLEARLY is going with a youth movement, so expecting older guys like Clabo is probably not gonna happen. I'm thinking Winston signing for cheap off a down year is the only shot we have at signing a RT pre draft. I think we may sign another DL depth guy, and an OL, i'm holding out for a pass rusher, but its probably not in the budget.

    McClain is both a disappointment & an idiot. If you can't manage to behave well enough to remain with the Raiders, you have a LOT of explaining to do.

    I agree with this, but I do think a team will take him, and in the right location he could stay out of trouble and be productive on the field. He'll never be the star linebacker the Raiders hoped he was when they drafted him, but he is worthy of a roster spot.

    Yes, some team will take him. I just hope that it isn't the Chargers.

    WR: Micheal Spurlock
    NT: Casey Hampton, Antonio Johnson, Sione Pouha
    LB: Quincy Black, Tim Dobbins, Larry Grant, Demorrio Williams
