Defensive tackle Richard Seymour has signed a two-year contract worth $30 million, meaning the Raiders won’t have to use the franchise tag to keep him off the open market, according to a CNN-Sports Illustrated report.
The Raiders hired Hall of Fame defensive back Rod Woodson as a defensive backfield coach Monday, bringing to three the number of those who wore silver and black in the past decade and are now on the coaching staff.
Despite an intention by the NFLPA to challenge 2011 franchise tenders applied by NFL teams from February 10 through February 24, nothing stops a player from accepting the offer.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the team has re-signed defensive tackle John Henderson to a two-year, $8 million contract.
The Oakland Raiders have re-signed veteran running back and special teams standout Rock Cartwright. Cartwright joined the Raiders as a free agent in April 2010.
NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora has the details: Routt will get $31 million over three years, with $20 million in the first two years. At first, this looks like another wacky Raiders contract. But Routt had an underrated season in 2010, ranking among the league leaders in completion percentage allowed and yards-per-attempt allowed.
Robert Gallery will not return to the Oakland Raiders in 2011 because of what he calls a “mutual agreement” — and what the team calls an example of a player overestimating his worth.
