Raiders camp preview: Battle of the veterans at running back

Well, we are just over a week away from the beginning of the 2014 training camp, a time that not long ago seemed like it would NEVER get here. Before training camp, Raider Nation should take a moment to re-familiarize themselves with the overhauled roster to start to get an idea of what position battles to keep an eye on, especially since the Oakland Raiders have so many positions...

Raiders camp battles to watch: Running back

The Oakland Raiders began “Organized Team Activities” yesterday and a new excitement is in the air. The rebuilt team has reported to “voluntary” workouts with the exception of only two players.

Oakland Raiders: Top five remaining needs

The Oakland Raiders entered the offseason with too many holes to even list them all. At the beginning of free agency, two more big holes were created when two of the team’s best players departed in Jared Veldheer and Lamarr Houston. But since then, general manager Reggie McKenzie has put a big dent in those needs, adding thirteen new players to the mix for 2014 (including pre-free...

Top Five Oakland Raiders currently under contract

The Oakland Raiders roster is far from being complete. General manager Reggie McKenzie is likely to sign at least a couple of more free agents and then there is the draft class and McKenzie’s beloved undrafted free agents. In addition, there is always the chance the Raiders still bring back some of their own free agents like defensive tackle Pat Sims. But even with a large number...

Oakland Raiders RB Kory Sheets highlight video

The Oakland Raiders have not signed anyone since last week and as a result, Raiders fans have only had rumors and speculation to talk about. Rather than another story about Matt Schaub, Jared Veldheer or Terrelle Pryor I thought it would be fun to have something more positive to talk about. There is nothing I love more than seeing a dominant running back. And that is exactly what...

Raiders RB Kory Sheets spending off season working for trucking company

And as it turns out, one of their most recent additions is literally a working class guy.

Former Raider ends up on new Raider’s former team

The Oakland Raiders signed former Saskatchewan Roughriders running back Kory Sheets this off season in an attempt to bolster depth at the position. Sheets, the 2013 CFL Grey Cup MVP, offers the Raiders another option for starting running back if both Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings leave in free agency.

Napoleon Kaufman, Raiders RB, pastor and high school coach

Former Oakland Raiders running back Napolean Kaufman may be done with his NFL playing days, but he is not done working. Drafted in the middle of the first round of the 1995 NFL Draft, Kaufman only played in the NFL for six seasons, all with the Raiders. But calling it a retirement would be a drastic mis-classification. After retiring, Kaufman has been incredibly active with the community...

Oakland Raiders work out former MVP running back

The Oakland Raiders are now a Reggie McKenzie led team. That means they will leave no stone un turned in their search for talent to make the team better. Almost as soon as the Raiders season was over, McKenzie began working out NFL street free agents, signing some to future/reserve contracts. Most of those will likely be no more than camp bodies, but the point is McKenzie wants to...
