Lets see DHb will be cut and has zero chance of being back. Why ? He scheduled to make 10.6 million only counts 2.9 if cut. That a 7.7 million dollar savings. Rod Streater or Juron Criner will take his place.
Mike Brisiel will most likely be cut or traded. Why? He is a pure zone blocking oline specialist who doesn't fit the power blocking scheme they will be employing in 2013. Jaguars are moving to a zone blocking scheme and they might have interest as you have to as many players that have playeed in that system before. Raiders protected themselve with that signing and save money if he cut.
Tom Kelly is probably gone as Raiders save alot of money in future years . (this one could go either way and isn't as definite as the other two)
Philip Wheeler, Desmond Bryant and Brandon Myers will probably be re signed before Fa starts. Matt Shaughnessy coming off a very bad year and he isn't going to cost much to bring back. (not a big loss either way)
C Palmer isn't going anywhere. He had one of his best season last year. 565 attempts 345 completions for 4018 yards 61% completion 7.1 average 22 tds and 14 interceptions. (that with no running game and Wr that weren't comfortable running the routes . Raiders probably would like him to take less and they want to give the illusion that they are happy to go into the season with T Pryor the starter or them possible drafting one. Why they are looking to trade down to regroup that second rounder they lost. Upgrade the oline and get a true number 1 type wr and you can win a championship with C Palmer.
Raiders don't have to pay S Lechler 3.5 million salary as they have his 400,000 replacement on the roster already Marques King.
Raiders don't get a second rounder for DMac there is no chance he not Raiders number 1 RB.
The Raiders are the bestest, they have the most talent, speed everywhere, they are a matchup nightmare for every team, they will dominate, Jason Campbell, err, Carson Palmer, err... Coaches cycled in and cycled out after you tell us all how great each hire was...
Raiders then suck, they make stupid trades, they have to cut the roster, fire coaches, etc etc...
And STILL you come back here and thump your chest with a new round of manifestos proclaiming the new player, the roster, the new coach, the Raiders are coming...
You are the worst blowhard homer of all time.
