Raiders stay on roll, redo Moss' contract for cap space

The Oakland Raiders keep making the right moves.

The club quietly reduced its cap figure by restructuring a portion of wide receiver Randy Moss' contract so that the Raiders, once thought to be strangled by the cap, were $3.4 million under the league's $85.5 million ceiling Tuesday.

League sources said the Raiders reduced the figure by guaranteeing the entire sum of Moss' contract this season, which calls for $7.25 million plus $250,000 in escalators.

By turning $5 million of base pay into guaranteed money the club can, for accounting purposes, prorate the figure over the lifetime of the deal -- thus dropping Moss' cap number to $3.75 million for the coming season.


Good move for OAK. Maybe we will see some more moves from them this offseason.

Applause for Al for getting it done this offseason.

Is it just me or did the Raiders management go from being very foolish to near genius in the last month?

It almost pains me to say it but I think you're right.

Maybe Al Davis is starting to let someone else make a decision or two.
