Oakland Raiders

Salary cap situation: The Raiders won't be in great cap shape, but they will have some money to get a player or two.

Needs: Wide receiver, tackle, safety, fullback.

Possible targets: Cincinnati receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh; Cincinnati tackle Stacy Andrews; Pittsburgh Nate Washington.

Biggest possible departures: Guard Cooper Carlisle; returner Justin Miller.

How active will they be?: The Raiders made their big free agency hits by securing stars Nnamdi Asomugha and Shane Lechler last week. Oakland may try to find a receiver through free agency or a trade.
