Oakland and Jon Gruden continue their dumpster fire in 2018.
Breaking: #Raiders have cut defensive end Bruce Irvin, league sources said. Story to come
Gruden has to be the worst personal manager this year. I can't believe that Davis signed this guy to run his team. Way to ruin all the progress they had developed over the past few years.

So how does everyone feel about this? I would like him back. He's due about 4 million if claimed on waivers so he should go through unclaimed. I read the paperwork will be done on monday so either Tues or Wednesday he should have a new team.
He left because we didn't take the 5th yr option on his contract right? You think PC/JS would say "been down that road" and not even give him a sniff? I think Norton may be putting in a word or two. I would like to see him back here. I think he still has speed, pass-rush ability and good tackling technique. I think he'll make the team better.
What would be the MAX deal you would offer to get him here? Prove it deal? Vet minimum? If he's a good locker room guy.... I'll say that again.... IF he is a good locker room guy, I wouldn't mind going in for a bit of coin for him to finish out the season. We only have just shy of 4 mil at the moment (I think) so barring any player contract restructuring there's not a whole lot we can do inside of this season.
I hope it works out and he becomes a Seahawk again.
Don't think you claim him on waivers; see if he clears and then sign him cheap.
He would be a luxury signing at this point but nothing the Seahawks need right now.
Would love to bring him back but conditionally.
I want to keep playing the young guys but at the same time there would seem to be a role for a situational pass rusher and well rounded LB/DE type.
He is getting paid by Oakland no matter what so it wouldnt take much and I think we are an attractive place for him. This would seem to be a really likely landing spot. Here or Atlanta or with the Patriots. Presumably he wants to play for a winner if not a true contender.

Per Adam Schefter:
Former Raiders’ DE Bruce Irvin, and the $3.8 million he had left on his Oakland contract, went unclaimed on waivers today, per source. Now a free agent.
Tacoma News Tribune has Seattle as the favorite.
Maybe his love for Ken Norton Jr gives us the edge over ATL and Dan Quinn.

Bruce signed a 1 year deal with the Falcons.
Bummer but oh well. I wish him the bestl.
ATL is his home town and he gets to pick the best place for him; it was between Seattle and Atlanta.
Good for Bruce and good luck with the Falcons.
