Raiders Free Agency Rumors 2011: Oakland’s Participation in Market Can’t Be Over

The Philadelphia Eagles have won the free-agent Super Bowl, but that means nothing right now. The Oakland Raiders won the free-agent Super Bowl in 2008 with the signings of Gibril Wilson, DeAngelo Hall and Javon Walker.

But all that glittered in the 2008 offseason wasn't gold in the regular season.

Wilson (safety) couldn't cover, Hall (corner) could bump and run and Walker was damaged goods. In 2011, the Eagles took Nnamdi Asomugha along with Jason Babin, Cullen Jenkins and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

After losing Asomugha to the Eagles and not making too much noise, everyone has the Raiders in last place for 2011 free agency. Still, owner Al Davis has played the game the right way so far because less is more sometimes.

Davis also may be tired of overpaying.

There was nothing that he could do about losing Asomugha because he seemed to no longer want to be in Oakland. The Raiders are young and talented, and only need a few players, who are still out there.
