Raiders in talks to restructure Wimbley’s deal

The Raiders want to be an active player in free agency, but they’ll have to clear some salary-cap space first. That means re-working contracts, with LB Kamerion Wimbley at the top of their list.

Wimbley has a franchise tag worth $11.3 million for 2011, and a league source said the Raiders are deep into negotiations on an extension that would slash his 2011 cap figure and spread his earnings over future years.

The Raiders and Cowboys were two teams in most peril in regards to the cap, but Dallas has made several cuts and freed up ample space, and also could clear even more with some simple restructurings.
