How many Adrian Peterson guide because. I think he's much more motivated. Then Marshawn Lynch we know nothing about the motivation of land of the many lives close to the coliseum he loves Oakland but he walked away from football. All of what I believe is a fair assessment he walked away from the better rock star. And a better team and an easier division that what the Oakland Raiders are going up against in the AFC west Olympia didn't wanna play in Seattle. What they what leads you to believe that he wants to come back obviously other than the hometown connection to play football again. Well that's obviously great connection great question and I also take a step further. The last couple years that he was in Seattle the lobsters they were injured on the with a bad back and other injuries that kept him. For completing all season but I think the hope Marseille which is a good story it is good field. But I still the fact that the raiders would have to give up something too cute you know. In the event of those either giving a Trace from Seattle. While talking Seattle to release of their rights if I was Seattle I would do without getting something in return because he's thought about that the county is dead body it's in depth. It just doesn't make sense of of the collapse of someone's agent. It has been out of the game four at least a year it's a change so I think two other guys out they have ready Beckett addressed the big appeal. Lincoln Kennedy joins us with Adrian Peterson. I just a guesstimate from you as you played in the league do you think his future contract now where every decides supply. If he does is now. Fifty cents on the dollar forty cents on the dollar it looks to me Lincoln. And you secured some big money in your career not the money that some of these guys are making today. That his agent. And who I am an aging guessed wrong they thought that they were worth much more. In the open free agent market that three or four teams like the giants in the raiders would've been bidding against each other. Why no more men and Peterson a guy is gonna get a gold jacket and going to can Ohio. Well we need to how do you justify the war which are going to give us look forward to situation. The political Procter and say hey you know five billion dollars that they were going to it was then that it is Cory got that bad so right. Arnold Decatur Peterson who would be come down to that copper Beatty were. But I think that seems to be quite late for running back. Production that you are going to get out of how much you wanna our commit the offense. Right now I don't think the waiters unanimously have the resources to commit to a polity. You know what I mean by that is Jessica peaceable out blocking tight end to their vocal can hold up is all they can also do some things in the passing game. But throughout the blocker fullback or other blocking and running back. To help them and they don't have that right here. Right now so let its final committee built such resources to that. In two where they can have that type of running back went style game fitted to assert that you know it does support they need to see that the rigors of what Victor going to be that we get agent did. The Lincoln Kennedy is our guest when the season ended in the season ended on a bizarre note without car. Out in Houston when you put your microphone down. And walked off the field in that last game in your mind what was the biggest need that Reggie needed to accomplish in the off season. Well I mean. Mean there was so much it just in disclosing that he. Wasn't even close kiwi cup inspect cars ethical. And I know that that they expect we have a player of his package is impacting ability. I think deceptively effective basically commit to that defense I think the raiders this off season has destroyed. Should they at all levels of this defense I just think it's that's what happened. Our defense was he Billick got progressively better as the season went on the defense was in B port side because debate. Every game have to be shoot out and it would target to witness could not get off the field so they have probably do that. Lincoln Kennedy is our guest to Lonnie Jenkins comes in at linebacker from the dolphins when healthy. A couple years ago we had a breakout season they need to keep him healthy but he seems to be linked. A guy you can go sideline to sideline and cover the tight end. What do you believe is a more important need for the writers that middle linebacker. Up pure guide Becky common and stop the Iran war. Teams have been trying to get those tight ends in isolation. On the raider line backing line backing core do you believe this is an upgrade obviously. While I believe it's an upgrade I think JT what they've that the raiders try to do is try to shield defense that's the case. That you're safeties and linebackers to cover people like the tide in. It just seems that particular division that the lakers have got a tall like he. We will pass catching tight it has abilities you've got by one who can show picked up that. If it's stopped but more importantly just look at past circumcision the current standard and National Football League is doing patriots so you gotta have a defense that. Stop portal by what they're able to do or not that's what topic was bizarre there yet. If they decide to stay with this format this philosophy that is more than obviously had the luck of the defense tackle. Beckett did that we call. Blocked others somebody who passes warm water to got you guys at least on every play to block. If he's got to be forced is going to be forced the defense tackle to keep that brought back. Forty so that they can world spotlight to spotlight in the right gained as close to compete in the past. What can you remember when Darrell Russell came to the raiders and he was a break he went to the Pro Bowl. And his first two years because what what I thought was amazing and brilliant about his play. And I'm not talk about issues off the field was not only could he stop the wrong. But he was so good at getting up field and getting to the quarterback do we see that anymore in this league or is it. Overweight and oversized defense of tackles who can only play two downs. Run off the field on third down because they can't get to the passer. Ken Reggie find a guy in the draft a defensive tackle who can do well he can stop the Ron but he as the athletic ability to get up field and put pressure on the quarterback. I think it's where it's a rarity but cheaply you've got guys like when you know what Paul was doctor what was felt the are you got the other guys will probably be put to tackle that maybe people themselves. They can probably do it but he it's like you know what the problem has changed is that there's really no room for development if he's got up about polished. A call at the college really polished it really have the ability to play over the next level. Jonathan Pollack as well as a stand up speak about how it's rare that you see somebody is able to be played baker. And it worked so much attention went wrong. He's a salon because let's face it these these college programs don't just felt like these two but more importantly would you give of that big contract to start with. We have a national all the what to motivate them for getting. Only can take this back in your career win you'll playing tackle annual going up against an absolute. Beast. Hall of fame tide player but you also out of the corner your guy. Knew that it was a deep offensive tackle in that same game that was done a lot lot. Blow up the line so you had your head on a swivel. I mean is that rare in this league is usually just a great edge what rusher. Take us back to a time that you remember whether it was right edge rusher but you're also concerned about that. Brilliant defense of tackle on the field. Recover so quickly these sort of like Philadelphia is in effect that it will full we're full of itself flight data or your city chiefs. We used play against Derek Thomas and crew but the thing was is that as well that's why we have to do your job he had to do your job at yep possibilities so. The what I remembered as a player is that if there was a time where. There was say you know for the left tackle Derrick Thomas's over there you have to get it double team had to get it back yet it is chip yet to pay attention. That I want to make sure our guys mostly it was but what if factor that was our responsibility to achieve I could no longer allowed to Scott BP because we could not. A bit if you Google resources to that. We took on these the peach apple basically that's what they have war except. And he's got to tackle playing you know play the opposite of fight that'll fit and we had got electric vehicle icicles on the Gaza left side it was it was you know. It was crucial. That we take care of business what we can't so we can artfully resource that you resources up it's up to them to help to step up but this is what this is what you felt about. Creating as many typical dispatches to give them the advantage of their conflict you have if you have that three technique. Beckett cannot feel that it's stopped erupting into all those states. You've got you know you've. Doctors your network signal that there's no doubt about it. They finally how difficult as it's been because you're out in Arizona where the owners vote. It's possibly coming on Monday there's a chance although there's chance for everything to happen here. But raider relocation. Is basically a week away a lot of raider fans reach out to you with your opinion what do you tell them. I just want the raiders to have the stadium it's so unfortunate that so much time has passed. They don't have the whole stadium I don't. Looks to be able that you don't out partially into the Bay Area you'll listeners a look city opened up to the latest state there. But it is long overdue for this place to have achieved almost at all it's it's really sit down right disgrace the fact that this one of the most psychotic. He's international will only have to share their stadium with a baseball team. Thank you yeah. Yup that night she said I will talk to you soon thanks a lot of dumb and there's Lincoln Kennedy Baston and I want the job he does.
