Raiders Learned From Using Cap Space On Declining Players In 2014

Apr 1, 2015 8:09 PM

The Oakland Raiders used the majority of their $60 million-plus salary cap room on older, declining players last offseason. The Raiders changed their approach in the 2015 offseason.

Oakland has signed 11 players in 2015, none of whom are over the age of 28. Last year’s moves were clearly a mistake and the Raiders have cut three players they added last year: defensive end LaMarr Woodley, quarterback Matt Schaub (acquired in a trade) and defensive lineman Antonio Smith. A fourth, running back Maurice Jones-Drew, retired. He would have likely been released if he hadn't retired. Two others, cornerbacks Tarell Brown and Carlos Rogers, are free agents the team currently has no interest in bringing back.
