    the raiders are likely to cut him anyway, so the pats should give 'em a 2013 7th rounder and get a starting OLB for 4.5M per year

    Wasn't he with the Browns? I liked him in the Draft a few years back Big guy who can rush the passer, nice Hybrid type.

    I don't believe that is correct. the guaranteed portion is paid immediately by the raiders whether they release him or trade him

    Can't trade in the NFL once the trading deadline passes until the start of the new league year.

    So they would have to keep him to trade him, and that would trigger this, which his new team would be on the hook for:

    He is due salaries of $11M, 10M, 11.5M between 2013-2015 and $19M of that is guaranteed if he is not cut by the Raiders before March 17th. So if they held onto him to trade him the team that traded for him would be on the hook for $19M...

    Yes, they traded him to the Raiders. I think the Browns got hosed IIRC. I'm too lazy to look it up.

    Seems to me that Wimbley really struggled at OLB in the Browns defense a few years back.

    I not sure how he fits in our defense.

    Here's a good recap. Romeo chose him over Ngata, trading back to let Baltimore have Haloti in exchange for a 6th. Wimbley had a good rookie season and then dropped off. He rebounded somewhat with Mangenius, but then Eric/Holmgren decided to trade him to gain flexibility in case they could made some other trades... Sounds a little squirrley. The best offer they got for him was a 3rd. Then of course after that Al did his pattented big deal...

    He fits our defense... would be a great addition if his contract was reasonable (5million or less)

    He played in a 34 2 gap D while with the Browns. Aside from his rookie year, he wasn't good.

    Reading is a lost art.

    If he won't restructure for the Raiders he likely will still want something closer to the deal he has once he hits FA.

    Let him get cut. He's overrated and overpaid.

    It's funny how a lot of posters here don't want a certain guy when it's actually reasonable in cost/picks to acquire him at some point in the past (Bowe, Wimbley, D'Quell Jackson), then a few yrs later they suddenly want him when it's NOT reasonable and he's now making way more money than ever.
