Raiders camp preview: Raiders need someone to step up at wide receiver

For the last couple of seasons, the Raiders receiving corps has been working with no clear leader on roster. Good plays were made by a lot of the veterans who are still on roster, but there was just not enough consistency to name a lead receiver. The Oakland Raiders currently have 11 wide receivers on the roster. Raiders veterans Brice Butler, Juron Criner, Andre Holmes, Greg Jenkins...

Raiders' offseason receiver competition will be fierce

The Raiders are a team always in search of more talent, a point proved with last week’s waiver claim on ex-Cleveland receiver Greg Little. Odds are he won’t be a present or future No. 1 receiver in the Brandon Marshall, Andre Johnson or even Sammy Watkins mold, but he will add competition to a muddled depth chart heading into the meat of the team's offseason program.

North Carolina Football: Little picked up by the Raiders

Released by the Browns Greg Little is now with the RaidersA few days back I posted that former North Carolina football player Greg Little was cut by the Cleveland Browns. The former Tar Heel did not stay on the market long as he was picked up the the Oakland Raiders, a franchise who is in need of wide outs.

Thoughts on the Raiders from a rival: San Diego Chargers

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to pick the brain of a division rival, the managing editor for Cover32’s San Diego Chargers site, Alex Cusick. He was a great sport during this Twitter interview even when I was ribbing him a little. It’s always really interesting to get a perspective of the Raiders from a rival who squares off against the team twice a year. Take a look at our...

Raiders claim former Browns WR Greg Little off waivers

Considering the Browns are in need of competent receivers, it seemed a little strange last week that Cleveland decided to release receiver Greg Little, who has struggled during his career but who still seems to have potential. It didn't take long for Little, who's averaged 55 catches per season during his three years in the league, to find another job. According to several...

I’m not cheering the Greg Little release, but it’s no big deal

And so the Greg Little era in Cleveland has come to a close. It’s not a day worth celebrating, that’s for sure. It’s never a good day when your team gives up on a second-round draft pick who was still playing under his rookie contract.
