Raiders get creative to work around CBA rules for practice

The collective bargaining agreement between the NFL Players Association and the NFL clearly lays out guidelines for offseason workouts. It limits the ability of players to have contact with coaches during parts of the offseson and severely limits the amount of contact that can be had during practices. Over the past few years, a number of teams, including the Seattle Seahawks lost...

Why Ryan Clady’s injury will have no impact on the Raiders

I received an interesting text Thursday. “Release the Kraken!” Since this is not a diary about my mundane life and the goings on of my phone, I’ll elaborate as to why it’s relevant to what we’re doing here. It’s from an Oakland Raiders thread that I’m on with a few Raiders buddies here in San Diego and he was referring to the fact that Ryan Clady tore his ACL during...

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...

Raiders cut WR Austin Hill, knee an issue

The Oakland Raiders have become the third team this offseason to pass up on former Arizona wide receiver Austin Hill. Hill was once a promising prospect after a stellar sophomore season in 2012 with nearly 1,400 receiving yards. Unfortunately a torn ACL in 2013 derailed for the entire year and he has never been the same. He was noticably slowed down. NFL teams did take notice...

Raiders prioritizing size with their new tight end group

As the roster currently stands, an average Raiders tight end is 6-foot-4 and 254 pounds.That's no coincidence.

Raiders Mailbag: OL OK? Drinking the Kool Aid? adding a CB and more

@Cover32_OAK What do you think of an O-line with: LT: Penn, LG: G. Jackson, C: Hudson, RG: Feliciano and RT: Howard? — StAy in Oakland (@RaiderSparky) May 27, 2015 I like it a lot. I am still very uncertain about John Feliciano. At the time he was drafted I felt like he was a huge reach for the Raiders.

Fourth-year veteran WR Rod Streater looking to mentor young receiving corps

The Oakland Raiders receiving corps struggled in 2014 without wide receiver Rod Streater, who played in 14 games and caught 60 passes for 888 yards in 2013. However, due to a foot injury, Streater played in just three games last year and with an improved receiving corps, he is looked upon as the veteran of the bunch. Streater, 27, will be going into his fourth season and as...

Raiders sign a player who could be worth watching

And with that responsibility comes a rather nice salary, so it’s not all bad for this Raider. He’s so well off that he doesn’t even need this badass...
