Dennis Allen expects Carson Palmer to be the Raiders’ quarterback in 2013

Raiders RB Taiwan Jones moving to cornerback

Taiwain Jones has struggled to make his mark in the Raiders backfield in the two years he’s been with the team. Jones has the speed to excel at the position but it sorely lacks the size at 5-foot-10, 197 pounds and has struggled staying healthy. And he’s also been firmly in the shadows of Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson (even Marcel Reece) on the depth chart. But now Jones is...

Raiders will try to restructure Carson Palmer’s contract

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Oakland Raiders will try to restructure  Carson Palmer’s contract.  This isn’t a surprise at all since he’s scheduled to make $13 million 2013, which is way too much money.
