RE: Yes

Deloatch, 6'2", speedy and smart...Will come in handy vs players like Clayton, Keyshawn, and Lelie
Groce, 5'10", physical player with good ball play
MM
Craft
and Fred

still no "official" report on this. TP reports this morning they were looking into him. A good thing is that I have checked several raider boards and they all say it is a bone headed move to let him go. He was quite a fan fave, lotsa sentiments like this expressed-

"This is from a true Raider fan the Nation is morning the loss of DC from the Nation. Just be aware that YOU were the favorite player of a lot of people in the Nation MINE included. The fans had nothing to do with Arts decision. You will always be special to the Raider Nation and we will miss you immensely. We will continue to root for you where ever you end up (except when you play da Raiders). Just know you are loved by the Nation and we were shocked maybe more than you."

--from a msg board at his own website:
http://www.dannyclark55.com/home.htm

another nice read on him-
http://www.raiders.com/newsroom/news...l.jsp?id=23977

"I'm lucky enough to get voted team captain by my peers," said Clark, the 6'2", 245-pound University of Illinois graduate. "Anytime you receive an honor like that, you have to live up to it." Clark, who views his position as more than tallying high defensive statistics, welcomes the responsibility of leading the defense.

None of these give me that warm, fuzzy feeling inside.....especially Craft and Thomas. Thomas is no more than a serviceable nickleback. MM is a legitimate #2 corner. The jury is out on Deloatch and Groce on what they can do. Craft should just play back. I mean wayyyyyyyyy back. I mean wayyyyyyyyy back for an areana team. Our corners butter have plenty of butter with 'em, cuz they're gonna get toasted.

But who is available that would give you that warm fuzzy feeling?

Bellamy cut with his acquisition. Thanks for the years and good luck Jay.

I'm sad to see Jay Bellamy go. He always seemed to play 100%. I wish him well.

About Danny Clark, seems to be a good pickup. 113 tackles last season for the Raiders. I still don't know if just adding a lot of mediocre LBs is a good thing, but at least Payton is doing what he can with the crappy defense he's been handed.

Sounds like this guy could help us hold down the MLB spot for a few years. Lots of experience, but lots of mileage too. But seems to have steered clear of injury, which is good. Between Clark, Simoneau and Fincher I think we're decent at MLB now. We could still use more speed/athleticism/talent at OLB. Too bad Polley is on IR, if he was healthy I think we could field a respectable linebacker group.

I like the moves the Saints have made through the waiver wire...but none of these guys are studs. They will improve our depth, especially at OT and CB...but only Petitti has a chance to start. Deloatch was a whipping boy for the Giants last year, he was abused but he does have some tools. Groce is a smaller corner who cannot cover the bigger guys. Haynes doesnt have top end speed to get around the corner, but he will be in our rotation. I think if Copper catches on and grasps our offense, Lance Moore will lose his job. Danny Clark could in time be our middle LB on first and second down and have Simoneau come in on 3rd down and that wouldnt be too bad. But at least Payton didnt just sit on what he had, he made some moves that he believes will make this team better and i like that about him.

It's all in the reflexes.

I cannot echo this enough after the Haz years became a nightmarish rerun playing over and over.
