On Friday, the Raiders signed linebacker Nick Roach.  Roach previously played for the Chicago Bears.  He played both outside linebacker as well as middle linebacker, when he filled in for several games for an injured Brian Urlacher.  While the Raiders haven’t released MLB Rolando McClain yet, Roach would likely be his replacement.  At this point, the Raiders have three starting linebackers should they go with a 4-3 scheme, though there’s still a lot to do on the defensive line. Departures: Matt Shaughnessy signed a deal with the Arizona Cardinals.  Brandon Myers inked a deal with the New York Giants.  The Raiders have not yet signed any of their unrestricted free agents, though curiously, ProFootballTalk.com reports that the Raiders didn’t seem to have interest in retaining Matt Shaughnessy’s services. There’s no word yet on free agent cornerback Terence Newman’s decision.  He seems to be enjoying retweeting support and encouragement from both Raiders fans as well as Bengals fans.  Newman played in Cincinnati last year.  Curiously, Newman tweeted “Had to delay the decision for a few more days. Not gonna lie though Raiders fans, them uniforms are dope” on March 16.  Hopefully we’ll find out his choice soon.  The Raiders need to start making some cornerback decisions.  Just in case anyone is wondering, I wouldn’t plan on Nnamdi Asomugha being in those plans.     This has been read 1 times
