Now I except Grant to get around the same amount from us. Steal signing for the Raiders, if he doesn't plan out he still isn't hurting them.

it would be stupid to draft McFadden now..your gonna spend a pick on a rb to go along with your other 3 RB's..and just ignore the real problem in oakland witch is DT..

and you take in how much money McFadden will want.and after Oakland had the number 1 pick last year.

to much money going into 1 position..

Good signing. Hopefully Bush pans out because he and Fargas would make the perfect pair.

Interesting move. Obviously the coaching staff knows first-hand what they can get from Fargas, he rushed for over 1000 yards in the offense despite having a total of 24 carries in 7 games last season.

Of course, that doesn't exactly speak to his being able to stay healthy for all 17 weeks as the starting back, so I would think they hang onto Dom Rhodes who they signed through 2008. At least until they see if Michael Bush returns to complete health and can hang in the league. I would bring Rhodes in on third downs and every so often, to help the passing game as well as help keep Fargas fresh through the season.

LaMont Jordan is gone, that was already a given.

No way they draft McFadden now...that's just way too much money to put into one position. Falcons look like the first team that will consider him.

If we're talking about a #3 RB, I think Rhodes very well could be gone. Adimchinobe Echemandu could do just fine in the role that Rhodes would have and for much less as well. (and with less of an ego) Rhodes had a serious problem with his lack of playing time in 2007, which could be understandable, but on the other hand the Raiders were going with the hot hand which was definitely not Rhodes.

I think we could see the Raiders going into 2008 having rid themselves of both Rhodes and Jordan while not drafting Darren McFadden in the 1st round. Fargas, Bush and Etch would be the top 3 backs on the team and in this system they would be fine.

well that means the raiders can look elsewhere, with their O-line as it is, is Jake Long an option?

I think it's a good move by the Raiders. Rhodes/Fargas/Bush at runningback is pretty good. They have to get Dorsey or Ellis in the Draft now.

That's a pretty good deal in terms of money. Makes me happy because I'm sure Ward will be asking for about the same from the Giants, and at that cost I wouldn't mind keeping him.

It's not too much money in one position if the players are good like Fargas and DMAC would be.

All players will want a ton of money.

I agree that pick will cost about the same. It's all about where you want to invest that money. I would take someone other than D-MAC. They need more help in other positions than RB
