NFL Draft Diamonds:
There are quite a bit of quarterback hungry teams out there right now, and this could be a blessing for someone. Maybe a team like the Oakland Raiders, who have a couple young guys, because it looks as if Mark Sanchez will be released as well. According to the New York Daily, Sanchez, whose expensive contract […]
I watched my beloved Oakland Raiders fall 34-14 to the dreaded (dare I say hated?) Denver Broncos, in not just their last home game, but the last game of the season.
I wish we competed more, and had played better, but I really did not expect a win. Why? The Broncos were 12-3 going into the game. We had 4 wins. Peyton Manning had already broken the single season touchdown...
Today the Oakland Raiders signed a pair of former Buffalo Bills draft picks. One was 3rd round quarterback Trent Edwards, who showed quite a bit of promise when he was drafted in 2007. After a few bad years, Edwards bounced around team to team. The Raiders also signed Torrell Troup, who was a second round […]
Oakland LB Lamarr Houston made comments that the Raiders didn't seem to have him in their plans going forward, however, coach Dennis Allen says 'that's not the case.' With the team set to have close to $70 million in cap space, Houston, who will be a free agent, could be posturing for a pay day, but Allen wanted him to know he's definitely in the club's plans...
According to Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com, owner Mark Davis will meet with current Raiders coach Dennis Allen next Monday on his final decision. GM Reggie McKenzie has recommended that Allen get another year, however, there is speculation that ESPN analyst and former Raiders coach Jon Gruden has a strong interest in the position.
We at NFL Draft Diamomds would like to congratulate Marquette King on his amazing first year performance. Marquette was a small school punter from Fort Valley State University. Marquette led the entire NFL with an astonishing 48.9 yards a punt. @JoshDubowAP: Marquette King led NFL in punting in 1st year at 48.9 yds. Joins Ray […]
The Oakland Raiders will likely attempt to find a franchise quarterback in the upcoming NFL Draft, a decision that will likely leave Terrelle Pryor looking for work elsewhere.
Of course, Pryor’s potential return to the Raiders likely hinges on Oakland’s desire to keep head coach Dennis Allen who butted heads with the running quarterback.
Allen nearly benched Pryor in Oakland’s...
Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen has said he expect to return to the team in 2014, and he will meet with owner Mark Davis on Monday to find out his fate. However, even if he is retained, his coaching staff is another question all together.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Oakland Raiders are looking to sign their assistant coaches to a one-year contract extension.
Interesting turn in Oakland: #Raiders brass trying to give assistants on expiring deals 1-year contracts. No security, make-or-break 2014

Why do the Raiders feel the need to sign Trent Edwards?
#Raiders have signed QB Trent Edwards to a reserve futures contract. Vet QB, likely not the answer for next season.

Edwards isn’t better then Matt McGloin and Terrelle Pryor.

Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen and owner Mark Davis will meet next Tuesday to discuss the team's season and immediate future as part of its offseason protocol, ESPN.com learned.
"Dennis Allen is the coach until he's no longer the coach," a league source said Tuesday. "The only people firing Dennis Allen right now are the media."
Speculation has swirled...
The Oakland Raiders have a ton of holes on the roster that they still need to fill. Not only that, but an incredibly large number of players on the team are going to be free agents come the offseason and the Raiders will likely not be able to re-sign them all. That means when free agency begins, the Raiders will more likely than not have even more holes on their roster than when...
For some players in the National Football League, "The End" can be a scary thing. Anybody who is fortunate enough to have a career that lasts more than a couple seasons has known nothing outside of the gridiron their entire life, but once "The End" hits, they have to make the adjustment that football is no longer part of it.Some players deal with "The End...

In a scathing article posted Thursday on the website Deadspin, Kluwe wrote that coach Mike Priefer made several anti-gay comments in objection to Kluwe's outspoken support of a gay marriage amendment in Minnesota.
Kluwe also says former Vikings coach...
