The Raiders are so hurting to free up additional cap space that they've already had quarterback Kerry Collins restructure his contract twice! Collins understandably is not taking any more calls from the Raiders.

Oakland is still desperate to unload cornerback Charles Woodson, who's due to make more than $10 million this season, and, sources tell The Post, the club is willing to take less than the two No. 1 picks required to sign a franchise player.

"At this point, we'd probably take a one and a five or a seven," one front-office member said. "We're hoping to get something done before camp."

Also, sources close to the club say to watch the Raiders' cap situation closely in the near future, as a result of personnel executive Mike Lombardi. In a change of recent Oakland policy, Lombardi has been giving out guaranteed bonuses and up-front money to players, something that will certainly catch up to the Raiders before too long.

So the cap is killing them and they have too many head cases. THEN they pick up Randy Moss...

ROFL

0-16 for the Raiders and Chiefs winning the SB. Could this be the year the dream comes true?

With Miami willing to take a 2nd for Surtain, you really think anyone in their right mind would give up a first PLUS for Woodson? Wake up Al.

Worse. You have to give up a first plus some other next year, then you have to pay him the $10M. And he isn't that good.

as long as Surtain is out there for a 2nd, the Raiders can't get any draft picks this year to help their ailing defense. That helps with KC's 1 t 2 year window

Actually I think you work out a deal that he is willing to sign and then trade for him. I think once the trade is made the tag is eliminated.

But I don't see anyone giving them a first for him.
