The Oakland Raiders have been a bad team for a long time –something I’ve pointed out with dutiful glee in the past. But a lot of people, myself included, may start have to eating crow if the Raiders can pull off a miraculous free agent haul that will instantly makes them competitive in a suddenly difficult AFC West.

ESPN.com Raiders beat writer Paul Gutierrez notes that the Raiders may take a run at Green Bay Packers defensive tackle B.J. Raji and will almost certainly make a run at Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen.

A little more high-priced than what I envision McKenzie doing, even with more than $60 million in cap space, but throw in the Packer factor of B.J. Raji, I can dig it. … I still see the Raiders making a run at Jared Allen as a defensive end, though, rather than the likes of Justin Tuck, Michael Bennett or Greg Hardy.

For all those that hate on the Raiders, a defensive line that has both Raji and Allen on it will shut a lot of people up — and shut a lot of offenses down. With more than $60 million in cap space to spend, the Raiders are in for a serious free agent period, but the only question is will they be able to pull off the signings?

If they do, all who laughed at them before had better watch out because the Black Hole of the Raiders defensive line will consume more than just quarterbacks and running backs.

Raji didn't hit his potential like I thought he would, but he can take up some big space in a traditional 3-4 set.

Resign Houston and draft Clowney.

Clowney, Houston, Raji and Allen on the same defensive line.

Allen for the low because of his age, Raji might get signed back to the Pack.

I wouldn't do it if I was OAK, just build through the draft. If anything, sign Talib.
