Three players are due roster bonuses next month and Raiders have to decide whether to keep these players and grant the bonus or to cut and avoid the pay day.

The first player is Robert Gallery.He is due a $625,000 pay day.Gallery has had some injury issues last year,but he out of the three is deserving of this money.The Offensive line wasn't the same with out him.The Raiders will pay him.


The next player is Justin Fargas.He is due a $1.5 million pay day.Fargas role has been limited and has seen less playing time last year.He averaged 3.9 yards per carry behind a banged up O-line.Justin just turned 30 last month and it hasn't showed.With 2 others RB's ahead of Justin,I'm not sure about his future with the Raiders.I love his desire, competitiveness,and his dedication to the team.I'm hoping they keep him.


The last player due the bonus is Gerrard Warren.He is due a 1 million roster bonus.Last year Warren had only 2 sacks all season.He did however improve some with the addition of Seymour.I don't believe the Raiders will pay this and he will be let go.I think the Raiders are targeting a decent DT in the draft and/or via free agency.I say cut ties with Warren.

O.K. Nation,What do you think?
