If the 2011 Oakland Raiders where to be personified in a boxer, I would imagine a powerful, aggressive, intimidating fighter with scary hand speed and the devastating right hook that can end the bout at any time.

One of the biggest question marks facing the Raiders this off-season is what direction they should take with running back Michael Bush, who’s currently slated to be a free agent when the signing period begins in two weeks.
Using their franchise tag to keep Bush in the fold for at least another season was once thought to be a legitimate option for Oakland, but if reports out of...

The best pick that can be awarded is a pick at the end of the third round and compensatory selections can’t be traded.
In the NFL there is a salary cap and salary floor...
Bill Callahan can help the Cowboys offense with his impressive knowledge or he can drive players away to a point where they might want to fight him.
According to former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tim Brown, that's what he dealt with while playing for Callahan for six seasons.
During a Tuesday radio interview, the former nine-time Pro Bowler gave some background information...
Steve Corkran of the Oakland Tribune writes that the Oakland Raiders have zero interest in using their RB franchise tag on RB Michael Bush because of their commitment to a normal salary structure. Instead, Corkran believes that the team would most likely use the tag to S Tyvon Branch from testing the open market. Corkran even mentions that the team may look to draft someone...
One thing is for sure, the Oakland Raiders are in serious need of cornerback help. With the loss of Nnamdi a year ago and now with new GM cleaning house and releasing Stanford Routt, the Raiders have gone from having a top notch corner tandem to having nobody at all. (please for the love of [...]
