The Oakland Raiders moved Austin Howard from right guard, where he played in 2014, to right tackle, where he played his entire NFL career before coming to the Raiders in 2014. The expectation was that Howard would be much better at tackle where he was impressive with the Jets than at guard where he was borderline pathetic with the Raiders. But now that the team has finished up their...

The Oakland Raiders got into a couple of practice scuffles with the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday as the two teams practiced together in Oxnard California. Twice, the two teams got into spirited fights as the packed crowd of mostly Raiders fans watched with delight.

Oakland Raiders: free agency recap

After six days, the Oakland Raiders have made some not-so-big moves. Coming into the offseason with more than $60 million to spend, some may have expected general manager Reggie McKenzie to make some big splashes.

One problem with first 48 hours of Jets’ free agency: everything

One problem with first 48 hours of Jets’ free agency: everythingIf the New York Jets’ first 48 hours of free agency could be summed up in an Eric Hutchinson album title, which is actually a horrible concept on my part and I apologize, it would have to be That Could’ve Gone Better. Hands down. Shall we review? Though I was not necessarily high on re-signing right tackle Austin...

Oakland Raiders: Austin Howard signed as new right tackle

Oakland Raiders: Austin Howard signed as new right tackle The other signing the Oakland Raiders made on the first day of free agency was for former New York Jets right tackle Austin Howard. The 5-year, $30 million deal with $15 million guaranteed is a prize for the former undrafted free agent. Like Rodger Saffold, it is a gross overpayment for a average player Howard has been...

Former Jets RT Austin Howard to visit Raiders

Per multiple New York beat writers, OT Austin Howard is first visiting Oakland. Howard, who has started all 32 games the last two years for the Jets, was a somewhat surprise addition to free agency because the franchise had named him one of their priority free agents. Howard has very good size at 6'7", 333 pounds. He is considered an ascending talent in the league. Howard...

New York Jets update on Austin Howard

We still have no word on Austin Howard. Is this officially a problem? It seemed to be relatively obvious that the Jets would offer Howard a new contract at the end of the season. The fourth-year tackle improved vastly this season and turned into a legitimate, above-average tight end. It would make perfect sense for the Jets to hold onto him, but still, there’s no news that will...
