Color me interested
They lost 34-3 to someone who had never thrown a pass in the league vs a team that had one win going into the evening. They hardly even played Irvin that game, for some reason. The Raiders stink.
what are we? 29th on waivers?
With 8m base salary I am not sure if the Pats would even be open into claiming him. We are at half time so it is like ~ 4m for whoever claims him ?
We’ll certainly be waiting on that list.
Irvin also seems more like a guy that was swept into the Gruden house cleaning. Several teams will likely be willing to put in a claim.
Why would it be waivers if he's a long time vet?
Current cap hit is approximately one half of $8,250,000, and the Patriots are down near the bottom of the waiver list.
Post trade deadline
Expiration of trade deadline means all released players are subject to waivers
Post trade deadline, everyone goes on waivers.
Ahem. Great minds, and all.
Perhaps he'll pass through waivers since teams don't think picking up his salary is worth it. But I've seen him take some really stupid penalties. Maybe that's enough to keep Belichick away.
I hope Oakland releases Lynch from IR.
Jason Babin getting cut by Eagles late in 2011 is similar to this.
He was the leader of the crap.
Always ugly to watch a guy giving up on his teammates even if franchise gave up on him & team.
Watching them get trashed by the 9ers was a masterpiece! Gruden was a nostalgic signing ala Joe Gibbs with the Redskins. The Raiders made a huge mistake hiring Gruden and I only see this getting worse. 1st round picks are great, but you better hit on them which they probably won’t.
With that being said, I’d take Irvin if he clears waivers but look for him to go back to Seattle or a scheme similar like the 9ers, Falcons, Jaguars, etc.
Sign him so that Gronk can get his mojo before games by beating the hell out of him in practice like in the Super Bowl.
I'm pretty sure his cap hit right now is $4M like luuked mentioned (since it's after the trade deadline). That being said, will anyone want to claim him at that sort of hit?
I’d rather sign him to improve the pass rush. I think Gronk is just coasting right now. We will see the dominant Gronk when it matters most.
Color me interested also, but I'd rather him pass thru waivers before we sign him.....
So do we get the guy?
How good is he these days?
