Raiders playing the odds loading up on flyers at defensive tackle | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/raiders-playing-odds-loading-flyers-122156385.html

This offseason the Raiders went kinda nuts at defensive tackle. Usually, at a position of such need, the plan is to go hard after at least one big-ticket guy. The Raiders didn’t do that. They skipped that aisle and went straight for the clearance rack and cleaned the place out in the hopes that they’d stumble upon a bargain.

**Grammar lesson for the day: The word “NOT” should NOT be used in the following sentence:**

I’m going with a defensive coordinator that’s used to my style of play,” Ngakoue said, referring to new Raiders DC Gus Bradley. “You’d have to be a fool to want to play for the Raiders, just their tradition, the history behind the Hall of Famers they have. I aspire to be a Hall of Famer someday.”

Surely Veach has a move or two coming re LT, if we’re all screaming like rabid fools he must have his own sense of the need there. One of the biggest questions is Niang, and none of us outside 1 Arrowhead Drive (if that’s the correct address) has the answer. I count thirteen names above, let’s throw a couple more at the wall. And speaking of fools, Happy April Fools Day! And hippo birdie two ewes, Pom.

Totally off topic, but if you like dark beers I recommend the Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter.
Man I need a beer. Drivers suck.
