I like this pick up a lot. Replaces Clemons as the pass rushing specialist. Another great signing for the Raiders. It's all finally coming together raidernation.


wow our pass rush is gonna be insane, all we need is to draft that mammoth DT and this defense is unstoppable.

Who aren't the Raiders gonna over pay for this off-season. I thought they had a good team last year. Also and you can quote me "the Raiders will never win a Super Bowl as long as Al Davis owns the team!"

Kalimba Edwards isn't that bad really. He reminds me of a poor man's KGB or Mark Anderson. Not someone that you want starting, but a serviceable 3rd DE. The Lions were frustrated that he never lived up to his talent, but he's not a worthless player.

badgerbacker
03-28-2008, 11:04 AM
Kalimba Edwards was never that great with the Lions. He's not bad, but I don't even know if this deserved it's own thread, you shouldn't really be getting this excited over him. To me it would be the equivalent of a Jets fan saying their passing game was going to be insane after signing Bubba Franks.

RaiderNation
03-28-2008, 11:10 AM
lol this isnt that big of a signing. you are also overrating the raiders. we still a young qb that has barely played, no LT and our dline sucks. raiders arnt going to the playoffs but we will be around .500

Geo
03-28-2008, 11:46 AM
They needed DE depth behind Derrick Burgess and Jay Richardson, solid signing I suppose.

I didn't think they were going to draft Gholston anyways, not when Burgess has two more years with ~3M base salary a piece. But now they have some depth in Edwards, who can (hopefully for them) give them some additional pass rush when he rotates onto the field in passing situations.

One could argue the Raiders spent their money better than the Redskins did in the summer of 2006. :p

And they still have the fourth overall pick to help their team get better.

03-28-2008, 01:15 PM
edwards is by no means a terrible player...its not like this is a brutal signing. Did they overpay? probably. But that seems to be the trend for them this offseason. In fact, other then trading for Dhall, whom they practically stole from the falcons, this is probably their BEST offseason move. I mean, 50 mill for tommy kelly? 55 mill for javon walker? 40 mill for gibril wilson? wat the hell is al davis thinking? They grossly overpaid for all of those guys, especially walker, who has essentially done nothing in this league. I mean think about it, he had one big year in GB, one average year in denver, and has done NOTHING else to deserve 55 million. Thats ludacris, and was a terrible signing. Kelly? i dont know much about hte guy, but im pretty sure he isnt worth 50 million and im damn sure he isnt the best DT in the league, which hes being paid as. Edwards offers them a solid 3rd down rusher, and as long as you dont ask khim to stop the run [ever] then hes ok.

Thats just my opinon on the raiders offseason...maybe cause im a fan of building through the draft, but al davis better hope he is not alive when it comes time to pay up for all those contracts.

Looking at the other deals, Edwards' isn't that bad. But any that has won 19 games in 5 years has to over pay, and there is no way Al is going to rebuild. At least they aren't boring.

03-28-2008, 01:17 PM
Yeah, what an insane pass rush. I think Kalimba will probably get 3 or 4 sacks this year.
He still has some upside left though I guess. He'd be a better fit in a 3-4.

Not a terrible signing. He won't play all 3 downs but can be a semi-effective pass rushing specialist. Shouldn't effect their draft plans.

Paranoidmoonduck
03-28-2008, 03:10 PM
It's a good move because Chris Long won't be there at four, Gholston wouldn't help Oakland a whole lot this year, and there are going to be few other chances to bolster the most barren defensive position on the team.

Solid signing. We missed out on Kevin Carter so we got the next best thing on the market I suppose. No chance we were gonna head into the season with Jay Richardson and Derrick Burgess and not much else. This seems to be lining up perfectly for the selection of McFadden if we don't happen to move down.

Good call, he'd be absolutely perfect for SD. I think a number of other teams would give him a look, I've always liked him but obviously the durability issues crop up every season if he gets a full workload.

Maybe Next Year Millen2
03-28-2008, 03:26 PM
Kalimba had 3 sacks last year. 2 of them came against the Raiders. Kalimba wasn't the starter after Week 3 last year. As the year went on he pretty much was only situational and then a health scratch. I just don't see him being successful even in that role.

Kalimba tried hard he just never got it. Marinelli couldn't do it so I doubt the Raiders D-line coach can either.

DeAngelo Hall for a second round pick was the best move this year, maybe the past few. Considering how good and young he is it really is amazing that a eighth overall pick who succeeded expectations received only a high second round pick.

No doubt. He still has a year or 2 until hes in his prime and hes allready a top 5 cb in the league

To get back to Edwards, if he gets 4 sacks this season for us id be happy with him

03-29-2008, 12:23 AM
I think this is a good signing. Chris Clemons wasn't anything special either, yet in specialized pass rushing situations he was able to be successful. The Raiders are looking to have Kalimba Edwards take this spot, allowing starter Jay Richardson to rotate out on 3rd downs. Edwards isn't going to be a starter and he isn't going to be expected to be that either. Setting him up for success (keeping him off the field if he's not going to go pin his ears back and rush the passer to keep him fresh and one-track minded) could get him 5-6 sacks next year...

At 2 years, $5 million total, this is a fine signing.

03-29-2008, 12:24 AM

No, it doesn't. The fact is that Kalimba Edwards who could be a solid situational player will likely count less that 2% against the Raiders' total cap. And when discussing contracts at $30-40 million, a cap hit of less that $2.5 million is no big deal at all. In fact it's a good deal.

They had money. They are using it to win more games. I don't see the issue. I don't like the Javon Walker money amount but the signing is fine, and DeAngelo Hall was an outstanding move. They need more pass rush so they get Kalimba Edwards. They needed a safety to pair with Huff so they went out and got Wilson, even if the price was bad. The only thing I have an issue with his Tommy Kelly, who has no great accomplishment in his career and is now the highest paid defensive tackle in the history of the NFL.

You could have said Archuletta, but Randle El actually produces. On the other hand, Ceratto has taken this team a complete 180. He refused to offer an extra 750k-1.5m to bring in Hackett. We have every starter from a playoff team last year returning + a full arsenal of draft picks + cap space.

Unfortunately for the Raiders, Al Davis hasn't figured this out yet.

No matter what anyone thinks, Davis knows he has to pay his draft pick, he knows there is a cap. These moves may blow up in his face, but he knows he has to pay his draft pick/ And for anyone to suggest otherwise is a lame attempt at humor.

Was the highest paid, until Shaun Rogers and Kris Jenkins both got 20 million guaranteed. Besides, before Kelly was temporarily made the highest paid defensive tackle, the holder of the title was Corey Redding (he of the one sack last year).

Honestly, the Lions deal with Redding was the cornerstone of Kelly's negotiation, and Kelly doesn't even made over 5 million a year in base salary until 2011.

Redding probably deserved it more than Kelly, but Redding's production was directly linked with how well Shaun Rogers was playing at the time.

I'm just saying, I can guarantee that the Redding deal was the starting point for the Kelly negotiations.

I disagree. I don't see how it could've been directly linked with Shaun Rogers' play. Shaun Rogers only played in played in the first 6 games of last season. Redding did almost all of his damage last season after Shaun Rogers was shut down for the season (injury and suspension). He recorded 1 sack in the Lions' first six games and 7 sacks and 2 forced fumbles in the final 10 games.

"highest paid defensive tackle" is hyperbole, if the best DT in the league were a FA this year, in this market, with the hike in the salary cap then he would be the highest paid DT in the league.

Kelly was easily our best DT this past year I dont know what your talking about when you say that he couldnt play DT for us.

On a side note this offseason has pretty much sucked for Oakland.We got some good but very injury prone WRs.Kwame Harris who just sucks.Kalimba Edwards who sucks.Kelly we overpaid.
Even the Deangelo Hall trade sucked.We never needed him.Fabs was good enough.The Giants didnt win the SB because they had two shutdown corners.They won it because they were able to get to the QB.We never needed Hall.Our pass D was good.But our run D was awful and still is awful our pass rush also sucks.So what do we do?We ******* sign Edwards and William Joseph.Wow that helps.Deangelo Hall isnt going to rush the QB and he isnt going to help that much in the run D.So we traded a 2nd rounder for someone we didnt need.The 2nd rounder could have gotten us a run stuffer or a pass rusher.Or someone to help protect Jamarcus.But what the hell Jamarcus has got Kwame Harris to protect him.Our next pick after the first round is a 4th round pick.After that we have 2 7th rounders.We'll be able to solve all of our problems with those picks.Odds are we are going to draft McFadden a guy who is overated and a guy we really dont need and we'll adress our needs with a 4th and 2 7th rounders.Although we'll probably spend one of those picks on a track star who cant play football.

He couldn't play DE or DT? What are you even talking about? Kelly played in 49 staight games until he got hurt, over the last 4 years he has been just about as productive as Williams, Rogers, and Jenkins. You can't name 10 DTs who were much more productive over the last 4 years. Let alone 20 or 30. And Kelly hasn't even been playing his best position those 4 years.

But obviously you didn't even understand what the post you responded to was saying.

Even the Deangelo Hall trade sucked.We never needed him.Fabs was good enough.The Giants didnt win the SB because they had two shutdown corners.They won it because they were able to get to the QB.We never needed Hall.Our pass D was good.But our run D was awful and still is awful our pass rush also sucks.So what do we do?We ******* sign Edwards and William Joseph.Wow that helps.Deangelo Hall isnt going to rush the QB and he isnt going to help that much in the run D.So we traded a 2nd rounder for someone we didnt need.The 2nd rounder could have gotten us a run stuffer or a pass rusher.Or someone to help protect Jamarcus.But what the hell Jamarcus has got Kwame Harris to protect him.Our next pick after the first round is a 4th round pick.After that we have 2 7th rounders.We'll be able to solve all of our problems with those picks.Odds are we are going to draft McFadden a guy who is overated and a guy we really dont need and we'll adress our needs with a 4th and 2 7th rounders.Although we'll probably spend one of those picks on a track star who cant play football.

Even if you were set at CB you make that trade for DeAngelo Hall. It was just too good of a deal to pass up. Really, I doubt you regret it.

If he were he would either have better options or more money.

Thats why he signed, but when you get cut by the Lions you may not be very good.

i agree, trading for hall is probably the only signing we wont regret making or that has the least chance of.

Seeing as how my team signed him, I wish that didn't make so much damn sense.
