Raiders cut ties with QB Brooks
 
Quote:

ALAMEDA, Calif. (Feb. 22, 2007) -- The Oakland Raiders cut ties with Aaron Brooks, declining to pick up the option on the quarterback's contract after one difficult season.

Brooks, who would have been due a multi-million-dollar roster bonus if he had stayed on the roster, failed to win any of his eight starts with the Raiders. The QB, who signed with Oakland after six seasons with the New Orleans Saints, will now look to join his third team in as many years.

Looks like the Raiders are clearing the way for a QB to go #1.

You would think that with any other team but with Al Davis who knows?

Yeah, Oakland really doesn't know what to do and getting rid of dead weight is a good start

Sveen 02-22-2007 03:25 PM

You might as easily come to the conclusion that they are clearing the way for another veteran QB.

OMG, what a nightmare that would be w/ OAK's OL.

Oh yes. If they do sign Bledsoe they better take Thomas #1 overall. :wink:

nah I actually wanted Brooks. I had been hoping all offseason Brooks would get cut and we'd sign him....didnt work out like i hoped...Drew Bledsoe? Id just be pissed. Not a chance. If were getting a vet QB im thinking either Huard or Schaub.

It's simply to clear salary cap room. And it gives a chance to see if Andrew Walter is their "franchise" QB.

The good decisions continue to flow from the Raider front office. Someone pinch me....

toonsterwu 02-22-2007 04:38 PM

Btw, I could definitely see Aaron Brooks ending up as the backup to his cousin in Atlanta if Schaub is shipped out.

NIN1984 02-22-2007 04:38 PM

Tui will be gone, so Raiders only have Walter

yea it's weird. al letting kiffin hire real coaches not mayors or bed & breakfast owners and signing sands and thomas early on.

etk 02-22-2007 05:30 PM

Another reason why the Raiders will draft JaMarcus. Keep dreaming RaiderNation, they're clearly not drafting CJ.
