Source: Raiders Looking to Move DT Sands

PFT.com reports that the Raiders are looking to move DT Terdell Sands. Here’s the story that broke earlier today about the possible move:

Per a league source, the Raiders have been shopping defensive tackle Terdell Sands.

The problem? A $1 million roster bonus, the trigger date for which has been moved at least once during the offseason. (Most recently, the deadline was nudged on June 23, from June 24 to July 3.)

At last count, the roster bonus is due today, and that means that unless they have moved the due date again, they’ll owe him the full amount if he was still on the roster as of 4:00 p.m. EDT.

Sands, signed as a free agent in 2003, is (was) signed through 2010. He appeared in every game last season, with no starts. The prior year, he started eleven games.

Sands played for the Chiefs in 2003 and the Packers in 2001, where he entered the league as a seventh-round draft pick. He was out of football in 2002.
