The Oakland Raiders signed kick returner/ wide receiver Josh Cribbs to a one year deal this offseason. Though he visited with many teams prior to the Raiders, he remained unsigned over a concern he would not be ready to play due to a knee injury. Looks like those teams were right because according to Vic Tafur, Cribbs is going to be out until at least training camp.
Don’t recall if this is new but Allen said understanding all along was recently-signed KR/WR Josh Cribbs would be out until training camp

The Raiders lost receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey in free agency so signing Cribbs, regardless of his knee injury, was a good move. Also considering the fact that the Raiders’ hands were figuratively tied behind their back due to having a small cap space to work with makes the move smart without having the benefit of hindsight.
The team must have a lot of confidence that Cribbs can return to form if they claim they knew about this prior to the signing. Then again, the Raiders haven’t been known for their smart moves over the past decade. Maybe this is just one of those moves.

Losing Shane Lechler might sting for some Raiders fans, but rest assure you should be happy. Your punter Marquette King is a beast. While he is in competition right now with Chris Kluwe, King is practicing to break records. At Kohl’s Kicking Camp King nailed this 89 yard punt in the air. This is a must see. I see a record being broken soon in the NFL.
Almost as worthless as mock drafts are (draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. got only one draft pick right this year), spring and summer NFL season previews aren’t far behind. As with mock drafts though, we need and love them even though they may not mean as much as we’d like. Here is my preview for the upcoming 2013-14 NFL season for the Oakland Raiders
As much as some Raiders fans want Terrelle Pryor to be their starting quarterback this season, I don’t see it happening. During OTA’s he was very unimpressive and now during minicamp he’s still having trouble throwing the football.
Terrelle Pryor continues to not show much improvement … wobbly, inaccurate passes

Tuesday was the first day of Raiders mandatory minicamp, so let’s check in on the offense to see how it’s doing.
Terrelle Pryor throws a quick pass to a receiver that had no idea the ball was coming. Someone got the play wrong.

Flynn's throw for Moore, wide of the mark. Incomplete.

It looks like Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has found another impact undrafted free agent this year in Conner Vernon.
The 6-foot wide receiver out of Duke was the ACC’s all-time leader in both reception and receiving yards, which proves that Vernon has what it takes to become a go-to receiver. Vernon is also a high character guy who puts in his fair share...

Coming into every season the last five years, Oakland Raiders’ fans could expect two things; getting plenty of penalty flags thrown against them and Darren McFadden going down to injury. For the first few seasons of McFadden’s career he was backed up by Michael Bush who could easily replace McFadden’s production whenever he went...
Batted balls. Wounded ducks. Interceptions. Passes into the turf.
The Oakland Raiders opened their three-day mandatory minicamp on Tuesday with a passing offense that looks far from a finished product.
From presumed starter Matt Flynn to the only returning quarterback Terrelle Pryor to rookie Tyler Wilson, none of the quarterbacks fighting to replace Carson Palmer as the starter...

When Reggie McKenzie passed on a defensive lineman with the second-round pick, many pundits were surprised but Florida State offensive tackle Menelik Watson does help improve the Oakland Raiders porous offensive line. Watson is an all-world athlete who has competed in Soccer, Basketball, and Boxing before picking up Football a few years ago. The Raiders right tackle play...
With the departures of Desmond Bryant, Richard Seymour and Tommy Kelly, Oakland Raiders defensive lineman Lamarr Houston will enter training camp as the elder statesman of the Raiders front seven.

On paper, the Raiders defensive...
