Jaguars-Raidersnotebook

Linebacker Danny Clark, a Jacksonville Jaguar turned Oakland Raider, talked about his eagerness of facing his former team.

The outcome did not take place as Clark envisioned from a win-loss standpoint as the Jaguars defeated the Raiders 13-6 Sunday. Clark, however, capped off an outstanding first season in Oakland by totaling a team-high six tackles. Clark brought his season-total to 98.

Much has been made about how most of the Raiders free agent acquisitions have not been worthwhile but Clark had been a big bright spot in an otherwise disappointing season for the Raiders, who finished 2004 with a 5-11 mark.

"Our team took time to bond but I think that time is of the essence," Clark said. "We have time in the offseason. The sky is the limit."

Let the speculation begin

Two individuals on the Raiders roster who figure to face an uncertain future with the team include but are not limited to wide receiver Jerry Porter and safety Ray Buchanan.

Porter has voiced his desire to void the final season of his contract. Buchanan has not had a pas not performed so well that he should feel safe. Both individuals talked about their future with the team after Sunday's game.

"I've gotten a few offers from the Raiders," Porter said. "I'm not going to try to strong arm them and say I need this by this time or else. I'm going to weigh my options and let them see what they want to do."

Added Buchanan: "I expect to be here next year."
