AUSTIN HOWARD RUMORS

Raiders release guard Mike Brisiel and save 1.38 million in cap space

Today the Oakland  Raiders released former starting guard Mike Brisiel, according to Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com. Brisiel started 30 games over the past two seasons, but was out of a job after the Raiders signed Austin Howard to man right guard. He signed a five-year, $20 million contract in 2012, but took a pay cut last year after they abandoned the zone […] The post...

Tale of the Tape: Austin Howard

The Raiders have been signing free agents left and right this offseason, going mostly with older veterans with a history of good to great production. Perhaps the one signing that bucked the trend was when the Raiders signed Austin Howard, a large offensive tackle who started every game in the last two seasons at right tackle for the Jets. Howard is a physical specimen, standing...

Raiders will have Austin Howard play guard, not tackle

According to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle,  the Raiders signed free agent offensive lineman Austin Howard to play guard, not tackle. Turns out there was a twist. #Raiders signed Austin Howard to play guard and not right tackle, & are hoping/expecting Watson starts at RT — Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) March 24, 2014 var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551', Size: '468060...

Oakland Raiders sign OT Austin Howard

This is an overpay for Austin Howard, who has been a solid, but unspectacular right tackle for the Jets in 2 seasons as a starter, grading out 31st among offensive tackles on Pro Football Focus in 2012 and 47th in 2013. Giving him 30 million over 5 years with 15 million guaranteed looks bad in comparison to some of the deals given to right tackles recently. Sebastian Vollmer (4 years...

Oakland Raiders: free agency recap

After six days, the Oakland Raiders have made some not-so-big moves. Coming into the offseason with more than $60 million to spend, some may have expected general manager Reggie McKenzie to make some big splashes. However McKenzie is not like deceased former owner/general manager Al Davis, who wanted every big name player and would give them outrageous overpriced contracts that...

One problem with first 48 hours of Jets’ free agency: everything

One problem with first 48 hours of Jets’ free agency: everythingIf the New York Jets’ first 48 hours of free agency could be summed up in an Eric Hutchinson album title, which is actually a horrible concept on my part and I apologize, it would have to be That Could’ve Gone Better. Hands down. Shall we review? Though I was not necessarily high on re-signing right tackle Austin...

Former Jets RT Austin Howard to visit Raiders

Per multiple New York beat writers, OT Austin Howard is first visiting Oakland. Howard, who has started all 32 games the last two years for the Jets, was a somewhat surprise addition to free agency because the franchise had named him one of their priority free agents. Howard has very good size at 6'7", 333 pounds. He is considered an ascending talent in the league. ...

New York Jets update on Austin Howard

We still have no word on Austin Howard. Is this officially a problem? It seemed to be relatively obvious that the Jets would offer Howard a new contract at the end of the season. The fourth-year tackle improved vastly this season and turned into a legitimate, above-average tight end. It would make perfect sense for the Jets to hold onto him, but still, there’s no news that will...
