I'm very surprised at the Raiders' signing of Witten

    We got Witten's best years. He's no longer an elite tight end. It makes me surprised that he would want to go to another team in his twilight and learn another system, and it's a team that's unlikely to be a Super Bowl contender next year. I'm not mad at him. He can do what he wants. I wish him well. I'm just surprised.

    He said he wants to play another year. Maybe the Raiders were the only team that wanted him? If so he'd be forced to play for them.

    I'm more surprised the Raiders will pay him nearly $5 mil, that's a lot of money for an old slow tight end. But so what if he's not an elite tight end, there are 32 teams with several tight ends each, and only a handful of elite ones, guess 60 catches and 5 tds is worth $5 mil.

    He hasn't been elite in seven years or more.

    neither have the Raiders, Chucky never was, and as shown by recent moves, they generally hate top talent in their prime....
