Amazingly, Raiders Could Be in Worse Shape Next Season

Filed under: Raiders, AFC West, NFL FansHere’s the deal: two big-name, offseason free-agent acquisitions, cornerback DeAngelo Hall and wide receiver Javon Walker, are no longer available to facilitate the team’s decent into repugnation (just made that one up, but it seems oddly fitting). Hall, and his seven-year, $70 million contract have been jettisoned, and Walker declared his 2008 season over because of a bad ankle.

(Gretz punched some numbers into his old schoool TI-35 and figures that, given Walker’s set to make $12 million this year, he’s pulling down $800,000 per catch. Splendid.)

It gets worse, though. The Raiders are not only out $20 million in actual dollars for the 16 games played by DeAngelo Hall and Javon Walker, but will also see both players take up a good chunk of salary cap space in 2009.

With Hall having been waived, the Raiders will have $5.833,334 in “dead money” under the 2009 cap, according to league figures. Furthermore, according to the ’s Jerry McDonald, Walker’s contract virtually guarantees the team will have to pay him a $5 million bonus despite his injury. McDonald continued bearing bad news: “Should Oakland pay the guarantee as stipulated and then cut Walker, the 2009 cap charge $14,166,667 to terminate the relationship. Combined with the Hall dead money, that’s $20 million in dead money.”

I think NFL commissioner Roger Goodell should give the Raiders an uncapped 2009 just to see if it would make a difference. Given this, I’d wager no, but some sort of cost-of-doing-business-with-Al Davis salary adjustment doesn’t seem unreasonable.
