Never more than a backup, Wallace is much more mobile than Leinart
Some of the other roster cuts the Raiders might be intrigued by are quarterback Seneca Wallace, wide receiver Deion Branch, and running back Tim Hightower.
Branch in particular would be curious simply because the fragility of the Raiders wide receiver corps could mean two undrafted free agents may be on the 53 man roster (Rod Streater and Travionte Session). Ask yourself, would you rather have Deion Branch or Travionte Session in the event of injuries to Denarious Moore and/or Jacoby Ford?
To be fair, it is always silly to take too much away from the preseason. There is next to no game planning, winning is secondary to health, and almost half of the rosters are trimmed. However, there is no doubt that Oakland's overall team depth was shown to be lacking.
The next few hours and days will go quite a ways to helping rectify that if Reggie McKenzie can make some specific moves.
A new reality of the NFL is that sometimes other teams have more talent than they can keep. And as a result, shrewd teams can improve their rosters by benefiting from this imbalance.
The Oakland Raiders are in prime position to make some final tune-ups to a roster heavy at the top, but lacking towards the bottom. The best part is, we won't have to wait long to see if these changes will happen.
