Everyone's saying what happens with Aso, but why would anything happen? Didn't they franchise him and therefore have him locked up for at least one year? Are you guys talking about in the future what happens to him or what?

Yes, the future. I for one am concerned about one of our franchise players bolting after one more year. If Aso gets an extension then Al looks like a genius.

Fabian Washington and Stanford Routt are still both in their rookie contract, but Washington's is heftier and has more guaranteed money in it. That would seem to indicate that if one gets dealt, it would be Routt. Routt supplanted Washington last year for the starting job opposite Scrabble, but Washington responded well and probably played better down the stretch than Routt.

For no other reason than profile, Oakland could probably get more for Washington, but I'm not sure how financially feasible it is. There's a chance Oakland hangs onto all of their corners for this year, especially if they enter the season without giving Asomugha a new contract.

Okay...Falcons fan here...

I know this move hurts, but honestly I don't understand how we got only a 2nd round pick out of him...but with 4 picks in the top 50...that's pretty impressive. The thing that I'm looking at in this deal is addition by subtraction, our cap # will be not sucked up by 1 big player, and I think that's more the direction this team is headed. Try to spread it out a bit and make the TEAM better. I think that Jimmy Williams will now be a cornerback again, and in the cover 2 scheme our DBs are better suited for it and our secondary may actually look better this year because of the scheme itself.

CB - Houston
CB - Williams
FS - Coleman
SS - Milloy / Stone
NCB - Irons / Von Hutchins

So we're short on depth, but the fit for the scheme seems even better than what we had with Hall. I don't know if we'll be using early round picks on CBs...or Safeties...and we still don't know what the scheme is going to be, but it looks more like a cover2 than what we have been running. If so there may be some movement in the linebacking corps as well.

I'm not unhappy, I think the team will be better, but I thought we'd be getting more than just a 2nd round pick.

How are the Raiders affording all of this??? They went out and gave big money to Gibril Wilson, they gave a huge contract to Javon Walker, they gave a HUGE deal to Tommy Kelly, now they trade for D-Hall who will demand a MAJOR deal. They took a QB last year 1st overall, he has a big contract. Now they are talking about Aso getting a Long term?? He is going to require a LARGE contract also. How are they paying all these players these contracts??? How are they going to afford a 4th overall selection?? They need to trade down now. This is crazy, I see a future cap hell team, maybe a team hoping too much on a non cap year??

I'm sure one of the sticking points to Hall's contract is that the Raiders want to get Asomugha under contract as well. Keep in mind that signing Hall to big money makes Asomugha's tag number go up as well because Hall would likely be in the top 5 paid CBs.
It wouldn't affect the tag at all. Those numbers are set prior to the start of the offseason.

Hall denying the trade is interesting, especially after NFL Network said he had a meeting with Al, Kiffin, and Ryan. I'm going to assume that compensation still hasn't been worked out, and Oakland may end up giving up more than just this year's second rounder.

Prime example of how fans will over rate a players stock, if you would of told a Falcons fan Hall would be traded for a 2nd rd pick they would of went crazy, but the contract signing was the big thing, a team had to agree to that also...Otherwise Dallas would of taken that offer with the 28th, but dont think we wanted to pay another corner that much, im fine passing him up.

Draft picks are so over valued.

Here we've got a probowl calibre cornerback who is literally a top 15 in the NFL who's only worth a second rounder? A pick which isn't going to yield a player who an make Hall's sort of impact.
