Corps players: Wide Receiver

This is the first piece in a series that will look at each position – the additions, subtractions, and pre-training camp depth chart as I see it.   Jumping right in.

Oakland Raiders offense is looking to make some noise in 2015

The Oakland Raiders offense has made about as much noise as a whisper the last decade. Get your jokes out now. “Haha haha the Oakland Raiders are terrible!

Once in a blue moon, it works out when said team has a veteran, future Hall of Fame quarterback and/or are one piece away from elite status (see: Randy Moss). But far more often than not, the player...
