Whasappening Raider Nation! Welcome to another thirst quenching installment of Raiderade. A lot has happened since we have last been in touch. The Oakland Raiders have restructured contracts, released players, worked free agency and picked up a compensatory pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Raiders have four options with the third overall pick in the draft in my opinion: [...]

It was reported earlier today that Carson Palmer isn’t willing to restructure his contract to help the Oakland Raiders.
If the Raiders decide to keep Palmer, he’ll account for over $15 million against the cap in 2013. If he ends up getting released he’ll account for just over $9 million, but the Raiders will save $6 million per Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times.
"As noted Monday, it's possible that we may have seen the last of Carson Palmer in an Oakland Raiders uniform, as it's "highly unlikely" that the QB will take a pay cut, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The Raiders now have three options: hang on to Palmer and pay him his $13 million for 2013, trade him or release him (ESPN)."

What’s long been expected finally happened on Wednesday when the Raiders officially parted ways with defensive tackle Tommy Kelly:
The Raiders today have released Tommy Kelly. The club appreciates his service, dedication and toughness.

The move reportedly clears up around $5 million in cap room, which for the Raiders is the equivalent...
A couple of weeks ago, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay caused a stir for most of this team’s fans when he began tweeting about the ogranization zeroing in on a wide receiver. However, there were no inklings from him or anyone else, as to who the receiver was. We supposed it was Randy Moss, as most of the bigger names weren’t ones they could afford. But with no deal in place...
The Oakland Raiders have released defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, cutting ties with their longest-tenured position player on the roster.
The move announced Wednesday is just the latest by the team to distance itself from the Al Davis era.
General manager Reggie McKenzie has already released defensive back Michael Huff and receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey this offseason. Punter Shane...
With quarterback Carson Palmer “highly unlikely” to accept a
pay cut from the Oakland Raiders – according to Adam Schefter of ESPN – it looks
more likely that the team will elect to part ways with the veteran. If that
happens, the Arizona Cardinals could be one of the teams to express interest in
Palmer, according to Pro Football Talk.
Interesting: now "highly unlikely...
Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic expects to see the Cardinals show interest in QB Carson Palmer if the Raiders decide to part ways with him in the next few weeks.
Somers adds that the Cardinals don’t appear to be targeting a quarterback in the first-round, but could look to add someone later in the draft.
“I think all speculators look at need and not the draft board,” said...
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that free agent WR Darrius Heyward-Bey will visit the Colts.
Schefter adds that the visit could take place as early as Monday.
Owner Jim Irsay tweeted that they were close to reaching an agreement with a receiver, so there’s a chance Heyward-Bey was the player he was referring to.
Since being release by Oakland, there’s been almost no reported...
I didn't think the Ravens could land a high-quality veteran safety like Michael Huff for a 3-year $6 million deal, seeing as Huff was due a $4 million signing bonus and a $4 million salary for 2013 from the Oakland Raiders.
But somehow Ozzie pulled it off.
Michael Huff, FS/CB, age 30, 6-1, 208, 6th year out of Texas, drafted in...
