Raiders make their roster cuts; Juron Criner and Greg Jenkins both get released

As crazy as this may sound, the Raiders cut some good wide receivers today.  The team released Trent Edwards the former Stanford quarterback along with Juron Criner and Greg Jenkins.   Jenkins was a very solid special teams player, but with the talent the team added at wide out, it made him expendable.  Jerry McDonald    @Jerrymcd  […] The post Raiders make their roster...

NFL Players Say You Have to Pay Them Double to Play for Raiders

Poor Raider Nation just can’t catch a break. Oakland has struggled mightily since losing in Super Bowl XXXVII to the Tampa Bay Bucs back in 2002. Since then, the Silver and Black is an appalling 53-123 in 11 seasons. Needless to say, it hasn’t been a good decade for Oakland. The team has also battled the perception that is a mismanaged franchise where players go to die. According...

Pressure on Terrelle Pryor to perform Thursday against Oakland Raiders

Terelle Pryor was always facing an uphill battle to make a roster spot with the Seattle Seahawks. When he was traded from the Oakland Raiders for a seventh rounder back in April, I considered the move to be nothing but gravy: Seattle gave up very little for him and expectations had to be pretty low. If he showed them something, great. If not, no biggy. At times throughout training...

Khalil Mack deserves more attention for his play against Green Bay

The Packers are forcing their way up the field. Raider fans are in disbelief. Matt Flynn actually led an offense past the halfway line – wow! It’s 1st and 10 from the Raiders 39 yard line. One minute left in the half. Flynn drops back, looks left to deceive the defense, then throws a screen. Blockers are ahead – this should be a punishing gain. But rushing from the left defensive...
