NFL Trade Rumors:
Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Oakland Raiders are considering releasing DT Tommy Kelly.
Kelly, 32, signed a seven-year, $50.125 million contract back in 2008. He has base salaries of $6.5 million in 2013 and another $7 million in 2014. As things stand right now, his 2013 cap number is $4.8 million, so it would make sense for the Raiders to free up some additional cap space by parting with him in the coming days or weeks.
Kelly is coming out of a more than disappointing season in which he recorded 1.5 sacks and graded out as one of the worst defensive tackles in the league, according to Pro Football Focus.
This year’s draft class is loaded with defensive line talent and some NFL insiders believe they could target someone like Utah’s Star Lotulelei or possibly even Florida’s Sharrif Floyd with the No. 3 overall pick.

Taiwain Jones has struggled to make his mark in the Raiders backfield in the two years he’s been with the team. Jones has the speed to excel at the position but it sorely lacks the size at 5-foot-10, 197 pounds and has struggled staying healthy. And he’s also been firmly in the shadows of Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson (even Marcel Reece) on the depth chart.
But now Jones is...

Breathe in and breathe out. Breathe in and breathe out. It’s hard to even think about the chaotic state the Oakland Raiders are in without having to take relaxing deep breaths. Oakland is one of the few teams that finished in third place in their division, but is in a much uglier situation than the one team they finished ahead of. If you are telling me that you would rather take...
