Oakland Raiders cornerback Tracy Porter was none too pleased that the jersey number that was already his was snatched away and given to Charles Woodson. He cried foul on Twitter when it went down, but now he's softening his stance in a non-Twitter environment, writes Kevin Patra of "The jersey situation is what it is," Porter said, via "It got some attention because I spoke out about it. I didn't like the way it was handled, but whatever man. I'm not going to leave camp because my jersey number was switched." Porter now has number 31, but says he's trying to get number 22, the number he wore prior to signing with the Raiders. He'll have to work that out with it's current owner, running back Taiwan Jones. Adn he's also still keeping an eye on profiting from the number 24, he joked. "Maybe .5 percent ownership in (Woodson's) winery or something like that. Honestly it's all good. I'm just trying to make it through my sixth NFL training camp."

Don't put Ausberry as the Raiders starting TE just yet

David Ausberry continued his solid off-season today, lining up with the first team tight ends and coming down with every pass I saw come his way, although they were only short passes in the team session.

Raiders' Wisniewski set at center despite talk

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.

Wisniewski has already...
