Oakland Raiders: Free Agent Ties To the New Coaches

In this article, I’m going to give you a list of free agents with recent ties to the new coaches who were just added to the Oakland Raiders coaching staff. The coaches include, Hue Jackson; former Baltimore Ravens QB’s coach and now Oakland Raiders Offensive Coordinator, Clancy Pendergast; Former Defensive Coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Arizona Cardinals and now DB coach for the Oakland Raiders, and Mike Waufle; former New York Giants defensive line coach who accepted the same position with the Oakland Raiders. This is certainly not a list of probable free agents signings, but this is a list of players that Oakland could take a long hard look at during this free agency period based on their bodies of work and their experience working with Oakland’s new staff members. The list follows typical order from offense to defense and is in no way a reflection of order that the free agents may be looked at, nor is it based on team needs. An “Unrestricted Free Agent” is a player who is free to sign with any team in the NFL. A “Restricted Free Agent” is a player who is free to talk and take offers from any team, but the offers may be matched by the player’s current team, or the current team may require a draft pick up to and including a first round pick for the player. “UFA-CBA” means that is no collective bargaining agreement is reached for the 2010 season, then the player will become an unrestricted free agent just before the start of the 2010 NFL season. I must include a big thank you to Wikipedia, ESPN.com, and KCChiefs.com for providing much of the information obtained during the research of this article.
