How Roy Helu Changes the Raiders in 2015

Honestly, there is a part of me, which wishes that Oakland would’ve drafted a running back. Florida’s Matt Scott comes to mind. Yet, we can’t go back and rewrite recent history. It’s unfair to second guess any more to bolster a weaker RB group. For all of Trent Richardson’s hype and mind numbing hyperbole, there’s not that sense of a playmaking. Are there big plays? If...

Camp Preview: Roy Helu is set to play a huge role in the Redskins offense

It seems as if the general consensus is that Alfred Morris somehow had a down year last season. That simply isn’t true. Morris was just as much a beast in 2013 as he was in 2012. I mean, the guy ran for 1,275 yards and seven touchdowns, on 4.6 yards per carry, last season. That’s very good. Really, the only reason he didn’t reach his rookie numbers is the lack of carries...
