    Jake Long is certainly a possibility too if he's on the board. Also fills a great need.

      My initial reaction to this went something like this:

      1. Who the hell is Tommy Kelly
      2. Wow that's a lot of scratch
      3. Who the hell is Tommy Kelly

        Kelly's a solid player, but not at that cost.

        Anyhow, I think this rules out DT. Dorsey is likely out. He's the best UT, but you aren't likely to go Dorsey/Kelly in there. I don't think you draft a 4-3 NT this high, so that may rule out Ellis.

        It wouldn't surprise me if this move clears their way for

        a) McFadden
        b) OT

        That said, I don't see them looking Otah, and Clady has to work his way up again.

        Thus, as of now, my guess at 4 would be Gholston, because, while Clemons is nice, he's not really an everydown end. Even if you believe he can be, Burgess is getting up there, and having Gholston learn and develop would be nice. Certainly fits the physical specimen mold that may intrigue Al.

            Wow this crazy signing really means the Bears are going to have to break the bank for Tommie Harris.

              Well that sucks. Hopefully that Clemons contract is lucrative enough that DE isn't an option either.

                Wouldn't it have been more prudent to..yanno, give Nmandi some of that money instead? You know, because..he's a lock down corner? Rather than invest it in an average DT?

                Meh. Perhaps that's just me. What do Raiders fans think of this deal in general? Worth it? Slightly overpaid? A total steal? I haven't seen any of Tommy Kelly, but I don't see how he could be of more value compared to Nmandi.

                          Tommy Kelly is the highest paid defensive tackle in the history of the NFL.

                            There has to be bunch of incentives in this. Wonder how much is guaranteed.

                              I can just see Drew Rosenhaus aka Tommie Harris's agent doing his best Mr. Burns impression right now.

                                Al Davis is off his freaking rocker.
