Raiders re-signed OG Cooper Carlisle.
Carlisle was cut last week in order to save cap space, and is likely returning for the veteran's minimum. Carlisle turns 35 before the season. He won't be a starter in 2012, and may have to show well in camp just to make the team. Mon, Mar 19, 2012 07:11:00 PM

Raiders released RG Cooper Carlisle.

The deal saves $2.1 million in salary cap space. The SF Chronicle's Vittorio Tafur speculates that Carlisle could be back at a lesser salary and that this was just a formality before Friday's free agent signings officially go through.

The Raiders can save $2.1 million in salary cap space by releasing RG Cooper Carlisle after the lockout.

Carlisle was a favorite of former coach Tom Cable for his zone-blocking skills, but the Raiders are transitioning to more of a standard, power-running system. Oakland is expected to be more than $10 million over the projected 2011 salary cap. Once he's released, Carlisle could be a fall-back option at left guard in Seattle if Cable doesn't land free agent Robert Gallery.

The Raiders are not expected to bring back RG Cooper Carlisle in 2011.

Carlisle turns 34 this summer and is due $2.5 million, which appears to be too much for a guard who no longer fits Oakland's scheme. With Tom Cable on the way out, the Raiders are transitioning from a zone to power-blocking system.

Raiders RG Cooper Carlisle has slipped in each of the last two years, according to beat writer Jerry McDonald.

The Raiders are likely hoping that Khalif Barnes or project rookie Bruce Campbell will beat out Carlisle, but we don't see it happening. Carlisle, entering his age-33 season, will get the chance to stave off his decline.

Raiders re-signed RG Cooper Carlisle.

Carlisle turns 32 before the season, but Oakland's zone-blocking system is relatively easy on the body and Carlisle has missed just one start over the last two years. The Raiders are strong at guard with him and Robert Gallery.

Free agent G Cooper Carlisle is visiting with the Bucs Saturday.

Carlisle, 31, has thrived in the zone blocking scheme that offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinksi is installing in Tampa. The move is curious, however, in that the Bucs are set at guard with Davin Joseph and Arron Sears.

Raiders signed G Cooper Carlisle to a two-year, $4.4 million contract.

Nice signing. Carlisle has plenty of starting experience and will help the Raiders transition to some zone-blocking schemes. The terms indicate he has an inside track over Oakland's youngsters for the right guard job.

He played for current Texans coach Gary Kubiak while Kubiak was the offensive coordinator in Denver. Carlisle also has met with Oakland.

The Bucs have set up visits with free agents Cooper Carlisle, a guard, Lance Legree, a defensive lineman, and Jeremy Newberry, a center.

Tampa also has reported interest in free agent linebacker Chris Draft and is in talks with linebacker Napoleon Harris and tackle Luke Petitgout.
Mon, Mar 5, 2007 11:17:00 PM

Free agent G Cooper Carlisle is scheduled to meet Seattle, Houston, Miami, and Baltimore, his agent told the Denver Post.

Houston would be a natural fit with former coordinator Gary Kubiak.

Broncos guard Cooper Carlisle is expected to be a hot commodity on the free agent market this offseason.

The Denver Post believes he could be the No. 2 guard behind Eric Steinbach, with no mention of Kris Dielman. Carlisle turns 30 next season, whereas the other two are just coming off their rookie contracts.

Tackle/guard Cooper Carlisle has backed out of a verbal agreement with the Ravens to re-sign with Denver.

He'll get the same contract that Baltimore offered: $2 million over two years, including a $500,000 signing bonus. Carlisle should be the favorite to start at right guard.
