BEST OF MAXIM
The Raiders landed their QB of the future, now they can improve their roster with their top pick.
1 Chiefs - OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M
After cutting RT Eric Winston, the Chiefs add Joeckel, the best tackle in this draft will will protect Alex Smith for years to come.
2 Jaguars - OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan
Not far behind Joeckel, and with higher...
The Raiders have finally parted ways with Rolando McClain in a move that was long overdue. He was a former first-round pick of the team.
According to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, numerous NFL teams are following JaMarcus Russell as he works on mounting a comeback. I’m told that a number of teams have been following Russell’s comeback attempt closely. It’s not the entire league, but it’s more than a few teams. Freeman believes teams are interested in Russell because there aren’t enough good quarterbacks in...
1. Defensive Tackle: Both of last years' starters are now gone, so at least one DT should be brought in via the draft. It looks like Oakland will use the third overall selection on Lotulelei or Floyd at the moment.
2. Cornerback: This has been a need for a few years now, and they may finally address it early in this draft. I doubt they will go Milliner in the first...
The Raiders’ long nightmare at linebacker is officially over. The team on Friday finally, after three years of off-the-field stupidity and on-the-field mediocrity, cut middle linebacker/headache Rolando McClain.

As soon as the Oakland Raiders waived linebacker Rolando McClain on Friday, I knew that several people would be hollering for the Pittsburgh Steelers to go after him.
A lot of the hollering for McClain by the fanbase stems from an article that Kevin Scarbinsky of the Birmingham News wrote back in December of 2009, right before Alabama played Florida.
Scabinsky wrote that then...
If teams are looking at how not to manage a draft, we present the Oakland Raiders. The number of first-round busts they have had over the last decade is staggering, with most of them released only a few years after being drafted.
The Raiders have been busy shedding contracts again this offseason and that included shedding the contracts of both of 2012’s starting defensive tackles.
Tommy Kelly had a good run as an Oakland Raider. He was undrafted in 2004 out of Mississippi State. He played his well into the starting roll, and eventually “earned” the largest contract ever for a defensive tackle, totaling...
The state of the Oakland Raiders that Reggie McKenzie inherited from the late great Al Davis was one that was coachable, as they went 8-8 the previous two seasons, but fell to 4-12 in the first year under the new regime led by McKenzie and Dennis Allen. But eager to show how he felt about the state of the franchise, McKenzie began cleaning house with some guys that were potential...
