The Raiders have plenty of weapons
Status: OFFLINE


at their disposal when it comes to handling Antonio Brown Brandon LaFell Jersey , and the Raiders can choose to be aggressive. But the player always will have rights, and the NFL Players Association along with agent Drew Rosenhaus will be charged with the responsibility of pursuing those rights.Whether it’s voiding $29.125 million in guaranteed money or, as explained below, trying to block his entitlement to the balance of his 2019 salary ($14.625 million) as Termination Pay if he’s cut despite being on the Week One roster, Brown will have the right to fight anything the Raiders do.As reported earlier this morning by Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Raiders have already sent Brown a letter explaining “that he will no longer be entitled to termination pay if they release him.”Termination Pay is a benefit available to players with four or more years of NFL service. Basically, if a player is on the Week One roster and gets cut at any point after that, he’s entitled to collect the balance of his salary as Termination Pay. (Vested veterans routinely are cut before Week One specifically to avoid the Termination Pay benefit.)The labor deal gives teams a mechanism for blocking Termination Pay for a player who was on the Week One roster. To do so, the team must “demonstrate that, after receipt of a written warning from his Club . . . the player failed to exhibit the level of good faith effort which can be reasonably expected from NFL players on that Club.” Thus, before terminating the player’s right to Termination Pay, the Raiders must send Brown a letter that goes something like this: “The Club hereby provides you with written notice that you are failing to exhibit the level of good faith effort which can be reasonably expected from players on this Club. If you do not demonstrate the good faith effort which can be reasonably expected from players on this Club, you will not be entitled to Termination Pay under Article 30 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement if you are terminated before the end of this season.”It’s possible that the letter to which Schefter refers is the warning letter. Regardless, the Raiders surely are aware of the Termination Pay angle, and they will try to block Brown from getting it, if/when they cut him.Still, the issue of Termination Pay and other guarantees will eventually be resolved by a third person who may Lee Smith Jersey , or may not, agree with the team’s arguments. Which means there’s a chance that, in the end, the Raiders will be without the player, without the money, and without the third- and fifth-round picks that were sent to Pittsburgh. CINCINNATI (AP) — Derek Carr kept his streak without an interception going. In the end, he couldn’t complete enough throws to give the Raiders a chance.Carr extended his streak without an interception to nine games, but Oakland managed only 19 yards in the fourth quarter, helping the Cincinnati Bengals hold on for a 30-16 victory on Sunday .The Bengals (6-icon_cool.gif got the better of a game between two struggling, injury-depleted teams. Oakland’s offensive line has been hit hard, forcing the Raiders (3-11) to keep shuffling players.They managed to pull out a 24-21 win over the Steelers a week earlier and had a chance for another comeback, trailing 20-13 after the third quarter. They failed to convert a third-down play against the NFL’s worst defense the rest of the way.“We’re working with our fourth and fifth guards,” Carr said.Starting left guard Kelechi Osemele missed his second straight game with a toe injury. Starting right guard Gabe Jackson was inactive with an elbow injury. The line didn’t give the running backs much room — the Raiders managed only 68 yards rushing — and Carr was sacked five times.“It was a very difficult situation for us today offensively, with all the changes,” coach Jon Gruden said. “We’ve got to do better, and I will acknowledge that was one tough situation that we were put under today.”Doug Martin ran nine times for 39 yards, the Raiders’ leading rusher. Tight end Darren Waller accounted for nearly a third of the Raiders’ yards rushing Frostee Rucker Jersey , getting 21 on a reverse. Otherwise, there wasn’t much room to run.“We didn’t have it today,” Martin said.Carr has thrown 301 passes without an interception, breaking Rich Gannon’s club record from 2001. Overall, he was 21 of 38 for 263 yards with a touchdown . In the fourth quarter, Carr was 4 of 7 for 38 yards with three sacks.After Daniel Carlson’s 40-yard field goal cut Cincinnati’s lead to 23-16 with 5:05 left, Alex Erickson returned the kickoff 77 yards, setting up Joe Mixon’s clinching touchdown run.“We made it a one-possession game in the fourth quarter, and the kickoff return by Erickson really hurt us,” Gruden said.The Raiders already are in next-year mode. They fired general manager Reggie McKenzie on Monday and had little on the line against the Bengals, other than Carr’s interception streak and the chance to win back-to-back games for the first time this season.“I want to see us finish with authority, with as much juice as we have, and as much heart and soul as we can showcase,” Gruden said. “That’s what I want us to do.”
