    Per Nfl.com

    Personally, I think it is a good move.

    Best offseason decision they've made so far. Hopefully he'll tough it out with them and not half-ass it towards the end of the season.

    I think its a good move (as a signing) but dumb one for the raiders because of already signing McFadden, they should of sign him ahead of time and then skip McFadden and went for something else. The way it looks in the AFC West.

    Broncos --> Trying to improve their passing D (they already have one of the best Running D in 2013)
    KC --> Trying to lose a few more games (lost OL/DL player and haven't done much)
    Chargers --> Trying to improve their already improve running game (has 3 good running back)
    Raiders --> Trying to copy the Chargers with their running game

    No Smack but the raider will still be on the bottom, but gotta admit they are getting better, and I think the Chargers will still be the only treat to the Broncos (well unless their running game doesn't work and they have to rely of Phillis)

    I do miss the good old Raider Rivalry, now we don't even look at any of these 3 teams as rivals, were so focus on the PATs we could care less whats in our division.

    Not surprised. He was born in Oakland, went to UCLA and did the Mile High salute every time he scored a td against us in Jacksonville. Good signing for the Raiders but he won't last more than a couple years.

    Good move for the Raiders, move over McFadden and make some room. I think good move for them and obviously doesn't make me happy but not real worried either.

    DeSean Jackson may be the next to return to the Bay area.

    I think he compliments McFad and lightens his load as DMC is constantly injured. Raiders also have Latavius Murray who they drafted last year that looked very promising until he went on IR just before the season started.
