Amid all the coach speak to today's press conference (try this one, "We'll see, after we go through free agency, after we go through the draft, which grouping gives us the best chance to be successful. I would expect that we'll be very multiple in that regard"), Raider's Head Coach Dennis Allen dropped some interesting nuggets if we dig deeply enough.
First, if I were OLB/DE Kamerion Wimbley or FS Michael Huff, I wouldn't get too optimistic about my prospects. In response to a question directly about those to players and their high contract numbers Allen gave this response, "Right now, with all those guys, we're looking at all our options and what we have to do from a financial standpoint to make sure we put ourselves in the best position to get the best players out there and be on our final 53-man roster. So between Reggie and myself, we're working through all those scenarios right now." That is certainly not, as they say, a ringing endorsement.
