Jon Gruden says LT Kolton Miller will be “long term, big-time player” for Raiders

Many were skeptical about the wisdom of displacing Penn and also that the rookie could live up to Penn’s impressive track record at the left tackle position, where Penn is one of the best.

Current suspect tackle duo looking like the plan for Raiders heading into regular season

Current suspect tackle duo looking like the plan for Raiders heading into regular season

Despite shaky preseason outing, the Raiders may have little choice but to go with Kolton Miller at left tackle and Donald Penn at right tackle.

He was lining up at right tackle while rookie top pick Kolton Miller stayed as the first team left tackle. At that time, Penn said he didn’t know if the move was permanent. That the team said they were just trying it out to see how it goes. At the time the move was by...

Raiders OC says Donald Penn has ‘looked very natural’ at right tackle

Switching from left tackle to right tackle is not as easy as one might think. It is more similar to writing left-handed after decades of writing with the right hand. Not an easy task for most of us.

At the moment, Oakland Raiders tackle Donald Penn, who spent his first 12 seasons at left tackle, is now making a switch to the right side. It’s a switch Penn initially said was “Very backward” and he felt “very awkward and rusty” when he first lined up there a week ago. But...
