Raiders | Team Notes

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Oakland Raiders senior executive Bruce Allen said the team was not caught off guard when RB Napoleon Kaufman announced his retirement earlier this week. "We have had conversations with Napoleon on and off about the possibility of his retiring," said Allen. While Allen admitted the Raiders have had some discussions with free agent RB Charlie Garner, Allen said they will not automatically sign him just because Kaufman won't be back. Allen did say they re-signed RB Terry Kirby as insurance in case Kaufman did retire. Allen did not rule out the possibility of something happening before next weekend's draft. Allen also said the team was having ongoing negotiations with LB William Thomas. He is the one free agent the team probably would most like to re-sign.
