On Friday, the Oakland Raiders re-signed kicker Sebastian Janikowski to a five-year deal, reported NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, with the team later confirming the move in an official announcement.
Janikowski signed with the Raiders way back in 2000, selected 17th overall in the that year's draft. The move, suffice to say, was ridiculed as many of Al Davis' unorthodox moves were.
The new deal is worth just under $19 million, with an average of $3.8 million per year, Rapoport says, via Twitter. It includes $8 million in guarantees over the first two years, which makes him the highest paid picker/punter in the league.

I spent some time really focusing on the QBs in practice, today. As explained by Vic Tafur, here, the Raiders definitely have Flynn and Pryor 1 and 2 and it shows in camp. The two alternated consistently, today, with Flynn getting a break with the ones, at times, and Pryor coming in. Neither McGloin nor Wilson got many snaps.
Matt Flynn had a decent but unspectacular day and...

My information comes from Raiders beat writers via Twitter and can be found on Twitter as @LeviDamien @ChrisMcClain @CorkOnTheNfl (Steve Corkran) @VicTafur @AsherMatthews @ChrisHansenNFL. I will be compiling all of their information throughout training camp. For all Raiders updates follow the writers above...
Stefen Wisniewski has every reason to believe he'll be the Raiders' starting center for a second straight season despite talk about a possible move to left guard.
If his first two years in the NFL have taught the 2011 second-round pick anything, it's to be prepared for change - even if coach Dennis Allen insists there are no plans to move him.
Wisniewski has already...
Darren McFadden has been hurt in each of his five NFL seasons. That’s why backup running backs are so vital to the Raiders offense.
Rashad Jennings was brought in to fill that role and he certainly looks the part. The 6-foot-1 231-pound veteran has a powerful rushing style that fits a revamped Raiders blocking scheme based on gap creation and control.
Jennings has impressed in...

New Raiders linebacker Kevin Burnett has is entering his ninth year in the league this year but his numbers have never been better than last season when he started every game for the Miami Dolphins and finished with 110 combined tackles.
It was his second time in two years with the Dolphins going over 100 tackles. And yet, the Dolphins cut him in the off-season to save money...
The Raiders are now a week and a half into their 2013 Training Camp, and are less than a week from seeing the field for the first time, facing the Dallas Cowboys this Friday, August 9th.
The media access becomes more restricted after the second preseason game so this is the prime time to attempt to glean what the 2013 team will become.
Here are some notes, thoughts and tidbits...
