The agent for Oakland linebacker Kamerion Wimbley said there hasn’t been any momentum on a restructured deal. The Raiders need to restructure contracts or cut some players before the start of free agency March 13. Wimbley is not interested in taking a pay cut.
The Raiders were one of the top five spenders in the league in 2011, which resulted in an 8-8 season. That is one of the reasons why the Raiders are one of the few teams still over the salary cap for 2012.
UPDATE: New Oakland owner Mark Davis reiterated that change is on the way in Oakland. Expect an overhaul of the team’s scouting system in the coming months. That has been expected since Reggie McKenzie was hired last month.
