    I don't think this affects our trade at all. As far as I know, it wasn't a conditional trade.


    The 5th rounder in 2014 we got from the trade remains ours.

    The conditional pick in the 2015 draft may not be ours anymore.

    Flynn trade: Seattle receives Oak's 5th-round pick in 2014. The 2015 conditional pick (also 5th rd) is voided b/c Flynn not on '15 roster.



    That sucks. But at least we get one 5th rounder for basically nothing.

    Matt Flynn gets $6.5M for five weeks in Oakland. Fifth-round pick will cost Seattle $2.4M for four years.

  • Guys, I looked at the news about Matt Flynn and decided to have a little fun with the numbers. He was your player, so really the news of his being cut should be in your other forum. After all, the money is still being paid.

    This is just meant to be a humorous look at the two years that he's been on the bench since leaving Green Bay.

  • This really says a lot. His entire salary is guaranteed this year. From what I can tell, there’s no economic benefit to releasing him now. They apparently just don’t want him around the team.

    I think back to all the hand-wringing that happened at this forum when we traded our “quality back-up” during a championship year. Now T-Jack is putting up perfect passer ratings every time he touches the ball, and we’ve got a fifth round pick to spare. And now Flynn is a guy who the RAIDERS ORGANIZATION doesn’t even want in the building. Amazing.

  • How much is Oakland spending in dead money this year? Pretty "funny"

    They will have a cap hit next year as well for his guaranteed money. We got a 5th rounder and some cap off the books so will live with it

    And some were surprised we didn't get a first round pick or how SF duped KC and we sucked at gettin a trade. When SF traded a QB that is 5-0 and we traded a QB that is cut. Yes more to it than that but at the end that is the result right now

    Can you explain your numbers in your article on your site? In the two seasons since Flynn has left Green Bay, Flynn has only started 1 regular season game (for Oakland). Not sure where you get the 3 games in your math. Seems like you are counting the Green Bay starts but your article claims to only be counting the past 2 seasons.

    I agree. He must really have an attitude. Remember when we let go a highly paid WR? I suspect this the addition by subtraction thing we did

  • $69 million in cap space for next year. Holy crap amazing that they have even one win this year. One has to ask if they shouldn't have done a few $1 this year $10million next year contracts...

  • Always seemed like a smug, self-important lil bish to me, personally. Eff him. I get the feeling he felt he should have been the automatic starter over RW AND Pryor and probably whined like a little brother that didn't get an extra Oreo after dinner.

    Yeah the Raiders situation is interesting. Al Davis back loaded a bunch of contracts, traded future draft picks (Curry, Carson Palmer, etc.) and I view them like the 2008/2009 Seahawks. Bad talent, old players, bad contracts, and very little young talent with all the draft picks the Raiders traded. I think Reggie McKenzie will do much like the 2010 Seahawks and roster churn. He's got a good pedigree and is a Green Bay guy so I think he'll identify under rated talent, re-sign anyone they have thats good, extend the better players and in a few years the Raiders will be in a good place. I know he feels suckered by the Matt Flynn deal but I think he was kicking the tires so to speak. Flynn was still a mystery. He couldn't beat out Aaron Rogers or Russell Wilson but those guys are top 5-10 QB's. If Reggie could have predicted the future I'm sure he would of not done the Flynn deal and waited to spend that money on Freeman but hindsight is 20/20 and he had no idea Freeman would be available.

    I think the Raiders future is positive but it may take 2-3 years before the fans see it.
