    According to Kevin Acee's twtter post

    "Raiders sign #8 pick Rolando McClain. Could spark signings near top. Or not. Remember, it's the Raiders. Deals they do r sometimes crazy--ka"

    Adam Schelfer is reporting he got 5 years $40mil with $23 mil guaranteed. That is less guaranteed money than the #8 pick got last year. Last year, Eugene Monroe got $25 mil guaranteed according to Rotoworld

    Yeah, this should get the ball rolling some with other Top 15 signings.

    If there's ANY position at which a player isn't hurt significantly by missing a week or so of camp, it's RB. So I'm not sweating the timing of Ryan Mathews' arrival at camp.

    Left tackles almost always bring more money that inside linebackers, regardless of slotting.

    McClain is going to be stud for years, but the fact remains that very few inside 'backers are taken so high.
