The patrolman says that he observed the vehicle driving just over the posted speed limit, and weaving in it’s lane. The officer pulled the vehicle over, as he has done [...]

Juron Criner didn’t fit the typical Oakland Raiders receiver core when he ran a 4.68 40-yard dash. The Raiders are used to speed. Denarius Moore, Jacoby Ford and Darrius Heyward-Bey are by far one of the fastest receiving groups in the NFL. As a fifth-round pick for the Raiders they weren’t losing much by taking a chance on Criner, but [...]
When the Oakland Raiders begin training camp on July 30th, there will be, at most, two spots open for fullbacks. When Marcel Reece signed his tender to stay with the team for at least this season, he assured himself a roster spot. That will leave possibly one more spot available for a fullback when the Raiders begin the regular season.
For the last two seasons, Reece has been...
It’s been tough for Oakland Raiders’ fans in the past when they played fantasy football. Any fan wants to have players from their own team, but for Raiders’ fans there hasn’t been many solid and consistent fantasy threats on the team. Last year there were a lot of Raiders that had big games on occasion, [...]
Oakland Raiders rookie defensive end Jack Crawford didn’t appear to stand out during minicamp or OTAs last month.
The fifth-round pick (158th overall) is considered a project player with limited experience in the eyes of many, having started football as a junior in high school after moving from the U.K. to the U.S.
Crawford looks to contribute from the get-go though in his first...

Brandon Carswell does not fit the mold of a typical Raider receiver when you think back to years past. He doesn’t have blinding speed, he’s not known for...
Although he has been battling a shoulder injury that has kept him out of action during the entire offseason, Oakland Raiders center Stefen Wisniewski should be ready for training camp and preseason action. He will be shifting from guard, where he played last season, to center for the Raiders in 2012. When the Raiders begin training camp on July 30th, a few players will be battling...
The Oakland Raiders know the importance of having a productive No. 2 running back on its roster. Especially when your No. 1 running back – while extremely talented – has a history of suffering from season ending injuries that limit the team on offense.
That is currently the case in Oakland with Darren McFadden. When he is on the field, McFadden is one of the more explosive running...

The Raiders have one of the most exciting and explosive running backs in the NFL in Darren McFadden, but his inability to stay healthy in past seasons could create a...

Who on the Bengals could be a "Comeback Player of the Year" candidate after a surprising 9-7 finish and a playoff berth in 2011? If you were to point at injuries, Leon Hall and/or Pat Sims could be candidates, though they were already having solid seasons and played for a good portion of the year before landing on injured reserve. You could point to poor performers or other...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Oakland Raiders are still interested in free agent running back Cedric Benson.
“They’re still interested in signing Cedric Benson. Cedric Benson is still on the Raiders’ radar,” said Schefter, per Evan Silva.
Not sure what the Raiders are waiting for. They just might be unwilling to pay Benson whatever he’s asking for.
