The Oakland Raiders have announced the signing of Rolando McClain in time for him to start training camp. This could be good or bad, I am not sure yet. If Al Davis paid an over the top amount, then it will hold up negotiations. If he paid a reasonable amount, then there is no reason not to get the remaining deals done.
This is the first top ten to sign. I know Buffalo wants CJ Spiller in camp and the 49ers made a strong offer to Anthony Davis, the offensive tackle they selected at number 11.
As Collin wroze in a comment last night, “when did it become more common to holdout than show up”? I don’t know but there is no reason for it.
I will say this, my respect for Tyson Alualu is tanking. If Oakland can get a deal done, so can the Jaguars. Monday at training camp, Jack will run the Oklahoma drill. If Tyson isn’t there for that, then to me he isn’t worth it.
Watch for signings today around the league. There is enough data out there to get the deals done.
