    The Raiders cut their 6th round draft pick without even allowing him to attend camp. Who the heck does that crap?! They didn't even notify the player he was being cut. Hell, they even sent him an invite to camp.

    Lol. I do follow the Raiders a little. Always liked their colors and logo growing up.

    I think they just signed a DE who came from the Cowgirls fairly recently? If so... the signing basically put Sulak out on his ass. Greg Ellis. That's who it was... I kind of like the move. It allows Sulak ample time to latch on somewhere since he most likely was NOT going to get a fair shake to make the team.

    It IS a wasted pick and that translates into the Raiders paying an even higher price for Ellis's services. Draft picks shouldn't be taken lightly though. Especially on a team as bad as the Raiders. Drafting Bey at #7 and now cutting a pick prior to camp... ugh.

    The raiders always reach about 2-3 rounds too early for guys, so this guy was probably an UDFA for anyone else :)

    Who'd be the weirdest of the two? Tough question, huh? lol

    I just think it's jacked up. Sure, they brought in Ellis, but the dude's old. Wouldn't you want youth learning from him? And to not even give him a looksee in camp? Heck, just a week and maybe one pre-season game should determine his potential. Nope, let's just cut him in July

    Thought it was the other weird al.

    I feel sorry for Raiders fans, and I know a few.

    I liked Sulak and would not mind him here, but I can only see him making the PS with our new depth at DE.
