So far, the Raiders have had a pretty good offseason.
Yes, despite losing Nnamdi Asomugha and Zach Miller, it has been a pretty good offseason. The Raiders have a sub .500 record with Asomugha and Miller so there is no reason for me to believe that these two guys made the Raiders.
The Raiders did keep most of their core and managed to find solid replacements for the players they lost. Then you have to look at all the youngsters the Raiders drafted to come into Raider Nation and excel.
The Raiders didn't even have a first-round selection so it's not just the early-round picks. The Raiders cleaned up in the late rounds with guys that are already looking like they are going to be stars in the NFL.
Free agency was even okay despite the losses.
It wasn't great but okay.
The Raiders had a nice plan for 2011 free agency but certain things didn't quite work out. Sometimes, what you don't do is a good move for price and health reasons, but no move was made in its place.
There is a lot of young talent on the team so maybe growth and development is the intent there. There is also still talent out there in free agency so at this point, my grade for the Oakland Raiders' offseason is incomplete.
