is going to be for six years and over 50 million dollars.

ESPN's John Clayton reports the contract DeAngelo Hall is expected to sign after he's acquired by Oakland will be for six years and over $50 million.

Nnamdi Asomugha is going to want (and deserve) at least that. Asante Samuel's with the Eagles was for six years and $57.14 million. Clayton says Raiders owner Al Davis is pulling out all the stops to make this deal a reality.

If Al Davis is able to lock up NA, then the Raiders just made out like bandits.

Look at Big Al spending some money. I guess you can't call him cheap this year. Possibly stupid (giving Javon Walker, Tommy Kelly huge deals when they are hurt) but not cheap.

This is crazy. The Raiders' pass D is not their problem (8th overall last year) -- their run D (31st) and pass O (31st) are. Seems like Al Davis should be using the Hall money to instead improve these glaring weaknesses.

:plus-un2: Hopefully Al will screw the pooch by over spending on guys this off season and allow NA to become a FA next year.

Report I heard by Clayton on ESPN earlier says they are 20mil over the Cap now and are trying to figure out how to fix it before the deadline.

Al's obviously desperate to win another Superbowl before he dies...

Sounds like the Raiders to give up a first round pick for Hall. It's going to hard for Atlanta to replace Hall.

There will definitely be some decent players cut then.

I really really hope we try to get NA from the Raiders! I would not be upset at all if we trade next years #1 pick for him!!!!!

that has to be wrong because as of March 1st every teams top 53 salarys count aginst the cap and that number has to be below the salary cap. If they go over the cap the league wouldn't approve the contract that is signed for that team.
