There’s news out of Oakland tonight that Awful Al has asked his staff to make recommendations on players that can be released immediately. Both DeAngelo Hall and Javon Walker were mentioned as possibilities. If Hall is released, he will have been paid $8 million for playing in 8 games. As for Walker, he received an $11 million signing bonus earlier this year.
The silver lining is Awful Al is finally realizing some of his mistakes. It’s only a positive if he relinquishes some of his personnel decision-making power.
