Auditions for the 2013 Raiders are underway. Coach Dennis Allen has made it clear that while every effort will be made to win the last three games of the season, there will also be a heavy emphasis in seeing some of the younger players to see how they fit into the club's future. For that matter, the veterans will be watched closely as well. The two most notable veterans who may be wrapping things up in Oakland are punter Shane Lechler and defensive tackle Richard Seymour. Lechler is in the final year of a four-year contract that paid him $16 million, the most money ever paid to a punter. Seymour's contract will also allow him to void the remainder of the deal and become a free agent. Given the age of both players and the money it would take to keep them, both could be playing elsewhere next season.

  • having the best punter in the league is pointless when you can't ever make the playoffs and only a mentally ill asshole like the late Al Davis (better him than us) would pay a punter 4 million a year. No wonder the Raiders have been a complete joke for the past decade.

    Seymour never wanted to be a raider (recall the hold out after the trade?) I saw fans calling him a leader and Raider Nation fell in love with him for smacking Big Ben in the face. Truth be told Seymour is just as bad as Sapp was in Oakland. Seymour got fat, didn't wanna practice, and collected or "stole" a paycheck every week from the Davis family. Now his knees are shot and will probably retire. Complete bust in oakland and and a police report should be filed b/c the Pats fleeced old Al out of a first round pick for this spare tire having zero.

    The raiders don't need to clean house they need to burn it down and rebuild from the foundation up.

    1983 was almost 30 god damn years ago. So please shut up about Just Win baby.
