Broncos corner compliments Derek Carr, takes shot at Raiders wideouts

In probably the least shocking news of the offseason, Denver Broncos corner Chris Harris Jr. told Greg Papa and John Lund of the Wheelhouse that he does not lose any sleep over the Raiders wide receivers. Anyone who followed the team closely last season knows that the wide receiver position is easily where the Raiders need the most help, so it’s not surprising to hear a division...

Should the Raiders sign Suh or are his on field issues too much?

In a week where sports media has been dominated by the New England Patriots, it’s a surprise to see any sort of report that’s even remotely related to the Oakland Raiders. To be honest, it seems like it would be difficult to find any reports about the Seattle Seahawks this week. Sports media might remember them as the OTHER team that will be participating in Super Bowl XLIX...

Oakland Raiders: One Must Have Free Agent

Ndamukong Suh has made his lasting impression for his on field play and degrading gestures towards opposing teams. While arguably the best available FA this year, Suh is going to require a hefty price tag and one team that has the money to pay his roughly 100 million dollar contract is the Raiders. Past history proves that the Raiders have no problem bringing in players with an attitude...

How the Seahawks went from heated rival to odd bed fellow of the Raiders

The Oakland Raiders are one of the most historic teams in the NFL and along with that history comes a fair share of rivals. From the Pittsburgh Steelers and Kansas City Chiefs rivalries of the old days to the more recent rivalries like the New England Patriots, the Raiders are no strangers to rivalries. From 1977 to 2001, the Seattle Seahawks were a part of the AFC West before the...

Tuck: Suh to Oakland would be a good move, 'He's Raider-ish'

Oakland Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck thinks Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh would look great in black and silver once he becomes a free agent on March 10th. "(He's) Raider-ish," Tuck said, via the Detroit Free Press at the Super Bowl's 'radio row.' "And that's one of the reasons why I know Raider Nation would applaud that move, beyond the fact that he's an awesome football...

Justin Tuck on Ndamukong Suh: He’s “Raider-ish”

There will be a lot of talk in the coming months about where Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh might end up next season. The three-time All-Pro is set to become a free agent in March, and it’s a near certainty that the Lions are going to let him test the market. Known as a passionate player to some and as a dirty player to others, Suh is going to receive a tremendous...

Justin Tuck: Suh seems ‘Raider-ish’

It would be extremely ‘Raider-ish’ for Oakland to give Suh the type of contract he’s seeking,  but we’ll have to wait and see if the star defensive tackle even has interest in the Raiders. Suh wants to be a rock star — Oakland isn’t Hollywood. Raiders pass rusher Justin Tuck has interest in Suh. Tuck said Thursday from Radio Row at Super Bowl XLIX that he believes Suh...

Is Jack Del Rio the biggest stumbling block to landing a defensive coordinator?

The Oakland Raiders still do not have a defensive coordinator after Todd Grantham, the defensive coordinator at Louisville, turned them down on Wednesday. In the case of Grantham, there were likely a lot of issues at play. First, he has four years left on his deal, each of which are worth around $1 million in guaranteed money. The Raiders offered him a two year deal, which is pretty...

Why the Raiders must build a defensive bully

Defense win championships. Even though the NFL has changed dramatically over the years, that fact remains. Long gone are the days of big, bone crushing hits that instilled fear into anyone who dared to touch the ball. The quarterback is treated like a baby in a cradle and nearly every hit he takes is looked at by officials; many drawing flags. Defenders used to be able to time their...

Looking at starters from 2014 that the Raiders need to try and upgrade

The Oakland Raiders have a number of starters who will not be returning in 2015 and who will need to be replaced. Both starting corners, for example, will be free agents who are unlikely to be brought back. But there are also guys who were starters in 2014 who are expected to come back and who likely expect that they will be starters once again. Some of those guys deserve their starting...

Oakland Raiders being sued by cheerleaders again

The Oakland Raiders settled a wage and hour lawsuit brought by a former cheerleader claiming multiple issues. To make a long story short, the Raiders made a common error among employers, treating their employees as independent contractors.
