LAMARR WOODLEY RUMORS

Raiders big free agent signings are big flops so far

Three of the biggest free agent signings by the Oakland Raiders this offseason were Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley and Antonio Smith. The Raiders defensive line in 2013 was unable to get any sort of pressure on the quarterback and general manager Reggie McKenzie wanted to address that fact.

Oakland Raiders: Defensive lack of pressure

As we all know by now the Raiders did a great job in upgrading their defensive players with experience and drive to win football games over the off season. What surprised me the most about week 1 against the New York Jets was the lack of pressure on Geno Smith through out the entire game. The only defensive lineman that looked like he was fighting to get to the ball every play was...

Oakland Raiders: Defense poised for resurgence

The Oakland Raiders have a history of being the defensive team that gives opposing offenses nightmares due to their ability to control the line of scrimmage. In recent years, that has not been the case. The Raiders went from being the 6th ranked defense in the NFL in 2010 to the 24th defense in 2013. In the 2010 season, the Raiders’ defense matched their opponents in touchdown...

Jadeveon Clowney, Greg Robinson, and Sammy Watkins went in three of the first four picks, and the Jaguars made Blake Bortles the surprise early QB of the draft.

Pittsburgh Steelers should give Charles Sims a look

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ backfield found much improvement after an injured Le’Veon Bell returned to the lineup. Prior to his return the Steelers’ rushing attack was inept as inept can be. Barring another injury, Bell looks to be more than capable of handling the duties of the backfield next season. Bell showed a lot of potential during this past season even after missing the...
