     The Raiders have been silent on the free agent front this off-season.  That could change very soon. 

     The Dallas Cowboys have released 5-time pro bowl left tackle Flozell Adams.  The Raiders need all the help they can get on the offensive line.  With Mario Henderson and Khalif Barnes penciled in as the tackles, Adams makes sense for the Raiders. 

     He may be in the fading stretch of his career, but has that ever stopped Al Davis?  He signed Jerry Rice when the 49ers gave up on him, look how that move helped Oakland return to the Super Bowl. 

     Signing Adams would be a quick fix, but with all of Oakland's other needs this would be a good move.  It would free up the #8 pick for possibly Rolando McClain.  The Raiders can find a prospect left tackle in the middle rounds and he can learn under Adams.  Look at how well 3rd round pick Matt Shaugnessy learned from Greg Ellis and Richard Seymour. 

     Adams won't be too expensive.  He asked to be released to shed his $2 million bonus due in May so he could have an easier time getting on a new team. 

     The Raiders have a need and here is a solution.
