When Seymour signed his tender yesterday, I was not surprised by the dollar value, given the high salaries of the top 5 DE's. Its a ridiculous amount of money for one year, but what choice did the Raiders have after trading their 2011 first for him? It got me thinking about all the silly money contracts that the Raiders have thrown around the last couple of years. How on earth are the Raiders not in cap hell? Are they spending big money on the top level of players while ignoring the middle and lower tier players on the team? Are they stacked with vets playing for the minimum? I wonder how they are pulling these big contracts off? I just don't get it! How they are managing their cap has a direct impact on the Pats, seeing as we have their first rounder next year. I would like their pick to be a top 5, which we can then spin into a variety of options, depending on how the draft unfolds. I hope Crazy Al keeps up his spending spree!!!!
