The particular Raiders have freed up a few salary cap room today with all the releases of AJ McCarron plus Jordy Nelson, and the assumption may be that they would be targeting an edge rusher with that cap room. But one which Oakland had their eyes upon has signed with another group this afternoon.
There are precious few true complete rush specialists left on the market, plus Justin Houston might be the best of them actually at his age. The Raiders are sure to address edge rusher within the draft, and there are plenty of good types to be had, but will they have the ability to pair the rookies with an experienced pass rusher? Their options are usually dwindling by the minute to make that will happen.
