Will Orlando Pace Become A Raider?

Filed under: NFL — Bill @ 8:01 pm

Former #1 pick in the 1997 NFL Draft Orlando Pace was released today by the St. Louis Rams.  I have it on good authority that the Raiders are interested in signing him.  Actually the rumor was that the Raiders were trying to trade for the former Pro Bowl left tackle but were not able to come to an agreement with the Rams.  Now that Pace is a free agent look for the Raiders to sign him very quickly.

Orlando Pace was drafted with the 1st pick in the ’97 draft, then the Raiders selected the late Darrell Russell with the 2nd pick.  At that time there were strong rumors that the Raiders were trying to trade up to select Pace.  Here we are 12 years later and it appears the Raiders may finally have a shot at landing the huge left tackle.  Unfortunately for Pace he has been slowed the last two seasons with shoulder injuries, an issue Pace claims is fully healed.
