Raiders reportedly interested in adding this free agent

According to the International Business Times, the Oakland Raiders are one of the teams interested in adding running back Shonn Greene, formerly of the Tennessee Titans. Raiders fans will likely remember Green as one of the mediocre running backs that they made look like a star when he put up 144 yards against a porous Raiders defense back in 2009. Since then, he has had a couple...

What Should Raiders Expect From Trent Richardson?

In his 2011 season at Alabama, Trent Richardson was simply dominant. In 283 rushing attempts, he racked up 1,679 yards, 21 touchdowns and averaged 5.93 yards per carry. Even with the devaluation of the running back position, Richardson was talked about as being a top five pick. The Cleveland Browns drafted him 3rd overall making him the highest drafted running back since Reggie Bush...

Raiders think RB Latavius Murray 'has a change at a huge year'

Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray should enter the season as the lead rusher for the team after showing some promise during the 2014 season. The highlight of Murray’s campaign was when he ripped off this 90-yard touchdown run on the Kansas City Chiefs last November. Murray completed the game with a total of 112 yards and two touchdowns in helping the Raiders to their...

Oakland Raiders: The Answer at Running Back

In 2014, Latavius Murray carried the ball 82 times for 424 yards and he reached the end zone twice. That’s good for 5.2 yards per carry, which is exceptional for a running back. At first glance, this is very impressive, but Murray’s numbers are inflated by games in which he had few carries for lots of yards. Murray has a chance to get a big workload this year. If we take Murray’s...

Who will start at running back for the Oakland Raiders?

The Oakland Raiders finished dead last rushing in the NFL last year, averaging a mere 77.5 yards per game.

Four former first-round picks playing for their NFL careers

At some point, even first-round picks run out of opportunities to prove that they belong in the NFL. For some, they are given multiple chances to prove their worth. For others, those opportunities are limited. From a couple enigmatic quarterbacks to one former top-five pick at running back, here are four former first-round picks who are playing for their NFL careers. 1. Johnny...

How Roy Helu Changes the Raiders in 2015

Honestly, there is a part of me, which wishes that Oakland would’ve drafted a running back. Florida’s Matt Scott comes to mind. Yet, we can’t go back and rewrite recent history. It’s unfair to second guess any more to bolster a weaker RB group. For all of Trent Richardson’s hype and mind numbing hyperbole, there’s not that sense of a playmaking. Are there big plays? If...

He finished playing in 29 games for the Colts with a staggering 3.1 yards per carry average. He has found a new home in Oakland...

Why Trent Richardson won’t make the Raiders 53 man roster
