The 2017 NFL calendar year starts Thursday and there's a lot of moves already being made.

Starting with this:

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/18839444/raiders-find-new-financing-las-vegas-stadium

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders have told the NFL they have found a new partner to finance their proposed stadium in Las Vegas: Bank of America.

The news was first reported by The Daily News and confirmed by ESPN's Darren Rovell.

A person familiar with the Raiders' plans told The Associated Press the team presented the new proposal with financing backed by Bank of America to the NFL's stadium and finance committees. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the plan was not made public.

The Raiders had been seeking a new partner for the proposed $1.9 billion, 65,000-seat domed stadium after casino magnate Sheldon Adelson withdrew a $650 million pledge last month.

The state of Nevada has committed $750 million to the project, while the Raiders and NFL would pay the remaining $500 million if three-quarters of the league's owners approve a move. A vote could come at the owners meetings later this month.

AP is gonna have to take a pay cut to play anywhere. He's also interested in the Raiders.

Hate to say it though, Peterson and Pats would probably be the best fit. Just because no team deals with injuries better than the Pats, and when they do have him healthy they'll get the most out of him and if he gets hurt which seems inevitable.. Just look at how they dealt with Gronk going down, and Brady being suspended.

Trumain Johnson asked for his release from the Rams

Can see the Raiders going after him, solid corner, won't break the bank, and Cali native from Stockton motherfucker.

AP wants to be a Raider or Seahawk and the Seahawks aren't interested. It remains to be seen if the Raiders would be interested.

Tyron Taylor is staying with the Bills.

Brandon Marshall signed with the Giants.

Pierre Garçon is headed to San Francisco.

Tony Romo will be released tomorrow once the official start of the offseason begins.

Did he say that? I saw that he was interested in playing for the patriots. I hope he does sign with raiders and not patriots.

I wouldn't mind AP in theory, Raiders have 2 good backup RBs and a monster OL so they could create magic with him and take the lumps if he gets hurt but his asking price from what I understand is too high. Carr + Mack are priority, no need to break the bank on an aging AP just to go a notch above Murray, much rather re-sign Murray on the cheap before that beast decides to go to the Pats.

The Brown's better take Myles Garrett or Jonathan Allen at No 1. No goddamn QBs!!! They need to build their Defense first and foremost with their O-line in a close 2nd. Then worry about a QB...or once those are built maybe you already have one...
