Raiders Bring in LB Martez Wilson, but cut DT Christo Bilukidi

The Oakland Raiders brought in some real talent in 6’4″ LB Martez Wilson. This former third round draft pick brings a sub-4.4 second 40-time and real potential to the LB pass rush position. Unfortunatley we had to cut somebody, and it was DT Christo Bilukidi, a player I honestly thought was improving and I liked in the DT-rotation.

Martez Wilson bring real pace and potential to the LB position, but he is far from a refined article and Tarver will have to put a lot of work into getting this kid up to geniune starter material. However, I am excited by this recruit and feel it will improve an already strong LB-corps.

Christo Bilukidi’s release surprised me, but I guess it has to be seen as a positive reflection on the progress of Stacy McGee, Crawford (who has increasingly been getting reps at DT, not DE) and new recruit Dan Muir (see below for interesting link on this kid, whose really a NT, so I can see the logic in keeping him over Bilukidi)
