Smile Raiders sign DE KALIMBA EDWARDS!!!!!!!

http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/...other/#respond

I like this pick up a lot. Replaces Clemons as the pass rushing specialist. Another great signing for the Raiders. It's all finally coming together raidernation.


wow our pass rush is gonna be insane, all we need is to draft that mammoth DT and this defense is unstoppable.

Who aren't the Raiders gonna over pay for this off-season. I thought they had a good team last year. Also and you can quote me "the Raiders will never win a Super Bowl as long as Al Davis owns the team!"

I said I am not factoring in quality, good or bad. Just plain activity. You guys are active. Right? So hence based on most activity, I say you guys are winning the offseason based on that. Unless there is another team signing more big named players.

They didn't overpay for Hall. The other three yes.

With who? Derrick Burgess is the only decent pass rusher on your team, MAYBE Tommy Kelly as well. Kalimba Edwards has been a bust his entire career.

Kalimba Edwards isn't that bad really. He reminds me of a poor man's KGB or Mark Anderson. Not someone that you want starting, but a serviceable 3rd DE. The Lions were frustrated that he never lived up to his talent, but he's not a worthless player.

Kalimba Edwards was never that great with the Lions. He's not bad, but I don't even know if this deserved it's own thread, you shouldn't really be getting this excited over him. To me it would be the equivalent of a Jets fan saying their passing game was going to be insane after signing Bubba Franks.

The Packers signed Brandon Chillar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nobodys going to be able to run or throw the ball on us now!!!!!!!!

RaiderNation said it right... RoughNeck your getting way to excited. The Lions team isnt exactly full of stars so anytime they cut someone1 there not very good because they couldnt make there team.

... he wasn't good enough for the Lions, but he's an awesome player for Raider standards?

Never thought I'd see the day a fan would burn his own team that bad...

They needed DE depth behind Derrick Burgess and Jay Richardson, solid signing I suppose.

I didn't think they were going to draft Gholston anyways, not when Burgess has two more years with ~3M base salary a piece. But now they have some depth in Edwards, who can (hopefully for them) give them some additional pass rush when he rotates onto the field in passing situations.

So the Raiders are now trying the Washington Redskins Title Contention Plan? Interesting.

One could argue the Raiders spent their money better than the Redskins did in the summer of 2006. :p

And they still have the fourth overall pick to help their team get better.
