The Raiders have reached an agreement with defensive lineman Tank Carradine, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

Carradine visited Oakland on Thursday.

He played 44 games, with eight starts, in four seasons in San Francisco after the 49ers made him a second-round pick. He made 5.5 sacks and 76 tackles in his career there.

Carradine, 29, missed eight games last season with an ankle injury and made only 1.5 sacks.

The Raiders lost Denico Autry from their defensive line when he signed with the Colts.

  1. My Raiders are mostly fishing for catfish with stink bait.
    They haven’t really made a noteworthy move yet.
    They’re in the place that Reggie was supposed to have fixed. No cap space land.
    And they have limited talent to boot.
    I don’t see many upgrades yet. They’re treading water at best.
    I suspect this is Reggie’s last year at the helm. He’s just not getting it done.

  2. How do you end up with no cap space and limited talent? When your mandate was to fix the salary structure.

    It’s like a garbageman’s convention going on in oakland

    How come you disappeared after the Queefers blew a 21-3 lead at home? Moby Mahomes will lead the league in picks and 48 million for Watkins??? Lmao

  4. I get that the Raiders have a lot tied up in Carr and still have to pay Mack (not to mention Cooper next year), but this reminds me of Reggie’s first few years when he went dumpster diving for Ron Bartell and Philip Wheeler.

  5. Developed into a solid end who was great against the run, but never got many sacks. Still, not sure why the Niners let him go so easily.

  6. Niners let him go because they have too many defensive ends. Baalke ruined the first part of Carradine’s career by making him play at a weight and position he is not accustomed to. Big issue for him is staying healthy for an entire season. He is actually a pretty good run stopper but never amounted to anything as a pass rusher. He is best suited for a 4-3 defense. If he stays healthy he can be a good contributor for the Raiders

    You start by tying up $25M per season in a mediocre QB

  8. Reggie drafted a franchise QB and a Defensive Player of the Year in the same draft, if you think teams like the Jets wouldn’t trade $90M in cap space for Reggie’s “problems” you’re out of your mind. How many years do we have to see teams throw HUGE money at average players like Sammy Watkins to be reminded that “winning” the first wave of free agency is usually nothing to brag about? Remember when the Dolphins “won” the Suh sweepstakes? Now he’s back on the market and they’re holding the bag with his dead money against their cap. Perspective, people.

    McKenzie just doesn’t have $30M to drop on an All-Pro like Sammy Watkins.
