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.

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.

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.
