Deangelo Deal Done?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't understand how Oakland can drop all this cash. They're over the cap, and isn't Jamarcus Russell due a 20 mil bonus in the next day or two? Something crazy like that.... I just don't understand how they can ...

Well, Hall is now in a perfect place for him, and I am glad he is out of the NFC South.

The Raiders can drop the cash because they basically no longer give a crap about the future. Al Davis is going for broke and I wish more NFL teams did it his way. They will be fine with their cap for now. In a few years they will be screwed. That doesn't matter though, Al Davis is getting very old and has very limited time to win again. This guy is a true warrior that wants to win at all cost. All of the old farts in the NFL should consider the fact that they can't take their money with them after life is over, and I think Al Davis actually gets it.

Deal Done

Raiders acquired CB DeAngelo Hall from the Falcons in exchange for Oakland's 2008 second-round pick and 2009 fifth-round pick, and signed him to a seven-year, $70 million contract with $24.5 million guaranteed.

The sides were discussing a 2008 sixth in place of the '09 fifth, but Al Davis wanted Hall bad and Atlanta got its upgrade, albeit next year. Hall, 24, has the skills to be an elite corner, but tends to lose focus and control of his temper. He can be beat deep. The Raiders may be kicking themselves shortly for not giving this money to Nnamdi Asomugha, a far superior all-around player. Asomugha isn't one to complain, but this likely won't go over well with him.
