  • I don't find it hard to imagine all 32 teams passing on this moron.

McClain, Heyward-Bey could become cap casualties for the Raiders

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, with the Oakland Raiders currently $12 million over the 2013 salary cap, they could end up releasing both wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and linebacker Rolando McClain. Heyward-Bey is scheduled to make over $7 million in 2013, while McClain is set to earn over $4 million. I could see the Raiders dumping McClain because of his off the...

Greg Olson: Raiders bringing back old run offense

One of the more disappointing story lines of the Raiders 2012 season was once again the inability of Darren McFadden to meet expectations. A lot of the blame for that was burdened on former offensive coordinator Greg Knapp and his reconstructing the Raiders offense with a zone blocking scheme, with which McFadden visibly struggled. Because as that old Oakland Raiders saying goes...
