Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Patriots brought in five free agent linebackers for workouts on Monday including: Justin Anderson, Kaelin Burnett, Tim Dobbins, Mario Harvey, and Paul Hazel.
This comes a day after Jerod Mayo went down with what is believed to be a serious knee injury. The Patriots have already ruled Mayo out for Week 7’s game against the Jets.
The Oakland Raiders went from a team with no heart in week two to a team who played outside of themselves and almost pulled off a huge upset in week two. While they did not get the win, the team showed a lot. So it’s not surprising that we have a lot of questions this week. Let’s get right into it:

This is the second half of my take on what the revamped roster of the Oakland Raiders will look like come Week 1. After focusing on the offense last week, now we turn our attention to defense. The deconstruction phase is over and for head coach Dennis Allen, his staff, and GM Reggie McKenzie it is time to win now or run the risk of having their names called on “Black Monday”...
The Raiders defense had flashes of being a good unit in 2013, but they wound up finishing 21st overall, 27th against the pass and 10th against the run. The lack of pass rush and depth across the board cost them several games in which they led going into the 4th quarter and that ultimately spelled their doom. Defensive Coordinator, Jason Tarver had to get creative with his LBs...
