Raiders Injury Update: Rod Streater out with concussion

The Oakland Raiders have gotten nice production from wide receiver Rod Streater since bringing him in as an undrafted rookie in 2012, as he's had 99 receptions for 1.472 yards and seven touchdowns over the last two seasons. He led the team in receptions (60) and yards (888) last season, along with four touchdowns, and Streater is in line for a big role this season even after...

Rod Streater trying to convince Matt Schaub he can be his new Andre Johnson

For the past seven seasons in Houston, Matt Schaub had All Pro receiver Andre Johnson as a security blanket. Johnson was downright dominant during that time, having over 1000 yards in every season he played more than nine games and three times going over 1500 yards. Rod Streater would like to take over that role for the Raiders. "I talked to [Matt Schaub] before," Streater...

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...

Oakland Raiders: Is there enough talent at the wide receiver position?

The Oakland Raiders have current and future talent at the quarterback position with Matt Schaub stepping in as the current leader, and Derek Carr being drafted from Fresno State in the second round. The question Raiders fans should ask themselves next is, do the Raiders have what it takes at the wide receiver position? I can’t help but think of the Oakland glory days when Rich...

Did the Raiders find another rookie who will surprise the NFL?

The Oakland Raiders hired general manager Reggie McKenzie for two primary reasons. The first is the he is good with the cap and new owner Mark Davis felt confident that McKenzie would be able to fix the disaster that was the Raiders salary cap. Second, and also a part of the cap issue, Davis felt confident that McKenzie excelled at evaluating college prospects. As you have heard...

Raiders may go from having no star players to having two

The Oakland Raiders have had a laundry list of problems with their roster over the past couple of years. But one of the most glaring deficiencies was the lack of a star player. Even the worst team in the league last year, the Houston Texans has star players in Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and J.J. Watt. The closest thing to a star the Raiders have had recently were the often injured...

Just how good could the Raiders offense be?

Last week I took a position by position look at the Oakland Raiders defense to answer the question of just how good the unit could be. Now it is the offense’s turn. Unfortunately, the prospects for success on the offensive side of the ball are not quite as positive as on defense. The potential for success is there, but there are so many question marks that it is hard to be overly...

Raiders Sign WR David Gilreath

  The Oakland Raiders have signed former Steelers WR David Gilreath, according to his agent Sean Stellato. Gilreath, 25, signed with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin back in 2011, but he lasted just a few months with the team before he was ultimately waived.  The Steelers would later sign him to their practice squad in 2012. Gilreath would later be promoted...

Raiders went from one of the worst receiving cores to one of the deepest

Last year, if you asked an average fan to name a couple wide outs on the Raiders roster they would have struggled.  This year the team is stacked at the position and will have to cut one of them with extreme upside.  The team added James Jones, and already had Denarius Moore and Rod Streater, […] The post Raiders went from one of the worst receiving cores to one of the deepest...

Raiders Unlikely To Keep More Than Five Receivers On Final Roster?

Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area believes that the Raiders will only keep five receivers on the final 53-man roster, with a potential of six as a special teams player. This is particularly notable because beyond free agent signing WR James Jones, there is no clear pecking order for the receivers on the depth chart.  Currently the Raiders have WR Rod Streater, Denarius Moore, Andre Holmes...

Raiders Reactions: How Twitter responded to the Khalil Mack draft pick

I think it is fairly safe to say that the fans were all very excited to see the Oakland Raiders take Khalil Mack in the first round of the NFL Draft. Few believed that the linebacker who could be the best player in the draft would be there when the Raiders picked, but he was. Here is a look at how some Raiders fans reacted to the pick: #Raiders are having an absolute dream scenario...

Reviewing the Raiders undrafted free agent success

The Oakland Raiders do not have much to show from draft picks in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft since Reggie McKenzie took over the general manager duties for the Raiders. But while he cannot point to success in the rounds where success is most typically found, he has shown a knack for finding talent in the scrap heaps of later rounds and in undrafted free agents.

Which Free Agents Should Raiders Target With DJax Gone To Washington

After the DeSean Jackson fiasco in Oakland, the Raiders were obviously looking for a veteran receiver to help mold Rod Streater, Juron Criner, Jared Green, Andre Holmes and Greg Jenkins into the stereotypical Oakland Raider receiver – a fast and deep threat that can turn the game around on one play. With Jackson now headed to Washington, the Raiders seem poised to go young instead...

Oakland Raiders: mock draft

  With only six picks in the draft this spring, Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie does not have a lot of resources to work with to build a team the way he wants to. This explains his multitude of mid-range free agents such as Justin Tuck and Antonio Smith. The Oakland Raiders have holes across the roster and McKenzie has done a pretty good job putting serviceable talent...

With New Additions To Raiders Roster Who Is On Top Of The Raiders Wishlist At The Draft?

Coming into the offseason the Raiders were faced with many challenges. They just had back-to-back 4-12 seasons, Darren McFadden missed six games due to injury and only had five touchdowns, leading receiver Rod Streater had 888 yards which may sound good but 7% of those yards were on one play. Then there’s the whole quarterback situation. Terrelle Pryor looked confused at times...

Should Oakland Raiders consider Steve Smith?

The Oakland Raiders need help at the wide receiver position this off season. While both Rod Streater and Andre Holmes have shown promise, they have also shown themselves to be wildly inconsistent and in need of a few more NFL seasons to reach their full potential. In the meantime, the Raiders need a high caliber wideout that the quarterback (whoever that may be) can lean on. Enter...

Oakland Raiders: Five best moves by Reggie McKenzie

Raiders need to upgrade at wide receiver this off season

The Oakland Raiders list of team needs goes on for days. So rather than discuss what is and what isn’t needed as the team heads towards free agency, it is better to focus on the level of importance for each position of need. The Raiders need help at virtually every position on the roster with maybe the exception of linebackers, and even there, an upgrade in the middle would be...

Raiders WR options in free agency are limited at best

The Oakland Raiders could use some help at the wide receiver position. They have lots of young talent on the roster with guys like Rod Streater, Andre Holmes and Denarius Moore, but lack a consistent number one type threat. They have no AJ Green, no Megatron, no Andre Johnson. That is what the Raiders need, but it is also what they will not find in the free agent market. Probably...
