Oakland Raiders New Defense

What’s up RaiderNation? Well, last week we spoke about the offensive juggernaut that is developing on the Raiders.

Denarius Moore is the Raiders #1 receiver?

According to the Contra County Times, it is Denarius Moore and not Darrius Heyward-Bey who will be the Raiders’ #1 receiver next season. This might sound strange because Heyward-Bey led the team in receiving by a large margin last season (64/975/4 as opposed to 33/618/5). However, Moore was just a rookie and played just 13 games. He also actually outgained Heyward-Bey down the...

Raiders’ Stefen Wisniewski played all of his rookie season with a torn labrum

A 2nd round pick in 2011, Stefen Wisniewski didn’t have the best rookie year for the Oakland Raiders in 2011, but he had an excuse. According to a report by the Oakland Tribune this season, Wisniewski played the entirety of last season with a torn labrum. Moving to his natural position, center, and with new offensive coordinator Greg Knapp installing a zone blocking scheme he fits...

Mike Goodson working with the 1st team at Raiders OTAs

Mike Goodson didn’t get a carry last season, but he has some experience and he’s still young, so the Raiders traded a reserve offensive lineman to get him from the Carolina Panthers. Now he is getting the bulk of the 1st team reps in OTAs at running back. This is not an indictment on Darren McFadden, who is simply absent while leading a youth football camp, but it is something...

Digesting another Raiders OTA

Media were allowed into view a Raiders OTA again this week and, after some time to digest the story-lines and sift through all of the information, TFDS will attempt to pull out the pieces that are likely to affect the team. As with most sessions this time of year, we must take much of the camp with a grain of salt.  Again, the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) strictly prohibits...

The Raiders signed three draft picks: defensive end Jack Crawford (fifth round, Penn State), defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi (sixth, Georgia State) and linebacker Nathan Stupar (seventh, Penn State). Terms of the deal were not disclosed. They are the first three of the Raiders' six draft picks to sign contracts.
