Raiders free-agency tracker
By Paul Gutierrez
Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen said at last week’s NFL owners meetings in Orlando that he wanted to add depth on the defensive line as well as add at least one more cornerback.
Done and done. Friday, Oakland inked defensive lineman C.J. Wilson and re-upped defensive tackle Pat Sims. Monday, the Raiders added cornerback Carlos Rogers. And according to ESPN Stats & Info, the Raiders had some $13 million in salary cap space ... before the Rogers signing was announced.
OL Rodger Saffold (St. Louis Rams) – agreed to five-year, $42,5-million deal, with $21-million guaranteed, with Raiders on March 11. Deal voided with Oakland’s concerns over health of Saffold’s shoulder the next day, he re-signed with Rams immediately.
OL Austin Howard (New York Jets) – signed five-year, $30-million deal, with $15 million in guarantees, with Raiders on March 12.
DE Justin Tuck (New York Giants) – signed two-year, $11-million deal with Raiders on March 13.
