Raiders | Team may be interested in Rattay
Wed, 18 Apr 2007 17:58:57 -0700
Jerry McDonald, of ANG Newspapers, reports the Oakland Raiders have been in contact with the agent of unrestricted free-agent QB Tim Rattay (http://www.kffl.com/player/1593/nfl) (Buccaneers).

You think if the Raiders sign him there might be a chance they take Calvin Johnson. Another thing is why dont we offer them Daunte just to see if they bite. I would take anything froma 4th to a 7th for Daunte.....

If we do, it will be just before the draft. It looks like the Raiders are looking for any excuse to draft CJ if you ask me. Getting a QB that could start, even if only for a year, gives them the opportunity to get CJ in the first and a QB in the second.

ya i think so too. CJ is WHO they want and trying to find an excuse to do so. i sure HOPE so cuz then its adams or Thomas at 2nd, russell 3rd and if bucs dont take quinn he hsould be ours.

Quinn could be ours i Mueller decides to trade and Minny doesnt draft him. I think everyone knows Minnesota will draft Quinn if he is there or are creating a big smoke screen....

Alot of their players are saying the quaterback they drafted last year whos name escapes me now is their guy and fully expect him to be their starter.

Tarvaris Jackson was their 2nd round pick last draft, so it will be hard to justify high picks at QB in consecutive drafts. But their picking would be guided under the idea of developing BQ during 2007 and trade TJ next season. Even at that approach, it's more likely that Detroit or Browns pick BQ.

Hopefully they will. Personally that would be a hell of a draft if you ask me, you take the best players in the draft who is a WR and you take a QB with all the potential in the world and super athletic.

Rattay stinks

yeah, but this is their M.O. is it not? they will take him, draft kolb in the second, and will allow them to take CJ with the first. Moss and CJ and Porter? You could start Leaf at QB and I would still be scared to death to defend lol. By the way I pick Kolb in the second and it might be kinda high, but from many things I have ready they really like him.

Rattay is a Back-up

I hope not cause I really hope that if Quinn is not there we take Kolb in the second.

The same could be said about McNown who they are supposely trying to trade for.

Hey BTW where do you think you boy Leak goes. Alot of people have not been to high on him, but I personally think he will be a pretty good if not decent QB. I love the spiral the Kid throws.

I just dont think Leak is going to equate to much in the NFL. But back to the topic at hand, I really see them taking CJ. But with Al Davis, no one knows what he will do.

That they are, last year Huff, year before Fabian. They took my boy walter in the later rounds but hes not equating to much these days. Didnt help him he went to the raiders though.

The Raider are the only team to draft a Punter and a Kicker with their first round pick. Alot of people have Russell locked and Im not surprise they take CJ, shoot maybe they surprise everyone and Quinn becomes a Raider.

I just hope that they pick CJ because it drastically improves our chances of quinn falling farther. I really wish we could work out something with them and Cpep. I would send them Cpep for a conditional pick, a 5th that can improve to a third depending on playing time. I think that is fair to both sides.

Fabian has turned into one of the better corners in the league, and Huff has the talent to be a star once he matures. What point are you trying to make?
Nobody could have predicted that Robert Gallery would be such a disappointment and the year before that they took Asomugha who deserved a pro bowl spot last year.

Phillip Buchanon has never lived up to his lofty draft status but he did start for them for a while, Napoleon Harris is a solid MLB who they traded in the Randy Moss deal. He played well when healthy in Minnesota and recently signed with the Chiefs.

Derrick Gibson was a big bust but he wasn't picked that highly anyway (28th). Everyone freaked out when they chose Janikowski in 2000, but he has at least been solid and filled a need for them at the time.

Thats all their draft choices since 2000. I wouldn't say they have been horrible with their first round choices.

Tim Rattay has decent tools, he could be the guy for them for a year if they take Johnson first and Edwards or Stanton in round two. I hope they take Johnson because I think that frees Quinn up for us. Minnesota won't take him. CK linked to a very interesting article on fox sports where Quinn says he has had barely any contact with them since his pro day.
