What a terrible organization, wow. If I were a billionaire, I would make Lloyd Christmas an offer he couldnt refuse and buy that trash can and then send it to LA.

It's easy to mock what the Raiders are doing since they have been bad for so long now and there was 'hope' with all that cap space.

However, if what they're doing is going through a 'true' rebuild by stop-gapping options for another 2-3 years until they develop their own nucleus then moves like these are completely justifiable.

More than likely no amount of FA signing would 'save' this franchise in a season (or two). So the moves they have made are just to remain semi-respectable without killing itself financially.

In 2-3 years they will probably still be picking in the top-7 of the draft and will again have cap space. Of course, if they draft well in that time then they should have a solid corps to build upon (in theory). Maybe then they'll be able to return to respectability.

Until proven otherwise though, the only assumption is this was another desperation move by an organization that has been terrible for a decade. They let Veldheer and Houston go, then tried to sign an average (albeit versatile) offensive linemen who failed the physical.

True.

But again, what were they supposed to do?

There aren't a lot of saviors in FA and they aren't positioned to get a 'franchise' QB in this draft.

So they're making moves to tread water another couple of years in which time they hopefully develop something cohesive.

It's sincerely doubtful that they're making these moves with the thought process of 'Lombardi bound'.
