How Raiders should handle the CB position

The Oakland Raiders have a lot of needs heading into free agency next week. Part of that is due to the fact that Reggie McKenzie has spent the past two seasons signing guys to one year “prove it” style deals. Included in that group are 2013 starting corners Tracy Porter and Mike Jenkins. Both guys dealt with injury issues during their short stint in Oakland and neither was very...

Oakland Raiders offseason position review: defensive backs

Watching the Oakland Raiders attempt to play pass defense in 2013 was a disaster. Even worse than an abysmal 2012. They gave up 20 more passing yards per game and 300 more total passing yards than in 2012, while seemingly “upgrading” from 2012 starting defensive backs such as Pat Lee, Ron Bartell, Matt Giordano, and Michael Huff.

To sign or not to sign: Raiders free agent dilemmas

When free agency started in 2012, the Raiders had to watch their free agents like Phillip Wheeler, Brandon Myers, Desmond Bryant and others leave for more money as they had their hands tied to their back with very little cap space to work with.

Reggie Could Raid Packers

The Raiders ended this season with 4 former Packers on their roster. Don’t be surprised if that number is even higher in 2014. That’s because GM Reggie McKenzie, who worked in the Green Bay front office for 17 years before going to Oakland in 2012, will have $70 million in cap space at his disposal come March and the Packers have 17 players headed to free agency.
