    DeAngelo Hall traded to Raiders per ESPN

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3295344

    < The Atlanta Falcons have reached an agreement in principle with the Oakland Raiders to trade cornerback DeAngelo Hall for the Raiders' second-round pick in the 2008 draft, pending the Raiders finalizing a contract with Hall, according a source close to the Falcons.

    Hall is close to agreeing to a contract with the Raiders that will pay him just below what Asante Samuel signed with the Eagles, according to the source. Samuel signed a six-year deal worth a reported $57 million, with $20 million guaranteed.

    Hall, a former first-rounder taken with the eighth pick in the 2004 draft.

    also i didnt mention we might trade down since we probably cant pay the 4th overall pick
    No, I can read very well very well thank you very much. I'm not from Oakland, hence I actually have an education.

    And you really think 6th and 7th round picks are going to make an impact? Most likely not. The only 2 picks you can really count on are the 1st and 4th round picks.

    We get it, you're a Chiefs fan and you hate the Raiders.

    Not really. As I've said in this thread, Walker won't earn half the money in his contract (and probably won't be around for more than three years). Kelly doesn't really ever end up earning that much, but Oakland have a chance to cut him loose before he earns the majority of it if he doesn't end up being the kind of undertackle they hope he will be. Wilson probably won't make it to the end of his contract either. The Kwame Harris deal is probably in reality a one year signing.

    Oakland is taking a risk with the future of the salary cap, but even if the cap continues to expand at it's current rate (remember when it was like 67 million in 2000?), and they cut the dead weight of player so all they are on the hook for is the guaranteed cash, they should be fine.

Aso,Hall, Wilson and Huff in the secondary plus one of the best covering LB's in Thomas Howard should give us a top 5 defencive team against the pass. In the draft we need to draft atleast 3 defensive linemen to go along with mayb another outside lb and Oline. If we can trade Washington and Route for picks that would be great. Getting rid of Jordan should be our number 1 thing to do. Also resigning Gallery would save us a ton of cap space.

    Overall I think Oakland with have a slight chance at the playoffs. It mostly depends on Russell. After seeing how he did on the last game last year the future seems bright. If we can get 15-20 tds from him we should be good. I think Oakland goes 6-10 to 8-8 this season.

    So is it for certain Gibril Wilson plays SS and Huff plays FS next year? Makes more sense to me, you have two great man to man corners and a FS with some range that can make plays in the secondary and not taking on tight ends every play.

    hmmm

    The biggest problem I felt with the Raiders defense last year was the lack of a pass rush, and the refusal on the part of Ryan/Al Davis to blitz our LB's. We could not generate a pass rush with our front four and you can't give WR's that much time against someone like Stanford Routt or Chris Carr. Is there a site with 3rd down defensive percentages, cause we had to have one of the worst in the league, especially for 3rd and 5+ yards. I know Al prefers pressure from the front four, but if it isn't happening I hope they start adjusting their play calling this year.

    Someone mentioned how the Raiders would give up a couple huge runs per game. A lot of these plays became huge due to a missed tackle rather than the defense just getting owned. I would say 50% of the missed tackles came from the SS position. Stuart Schweigert is a terrible tackler and Hiram Eugene is not a whole lot better. That is why Gibril Wilson is such a good signing for us.

    The Raiders defense should be alright this year, but they are going to have to find a way to get to the QB. I would say I am probably more worried about our lack of a pass rush than stopping the run. Looking at the stats it may not make a lot of sense, but if you watched Raiders games this was their biggest problem on the defensive side of the ball.
