During his time with the Oakland Raiders, Donald Penn has done an incredible job protecting quarterback Derek Carr.

Kolton Miller gets first team reps at RT, could it be preview of rookie’s role?

Jon Gruden drafted Kolton Miller to be his left tackle of the future. He also said early on that left tackle is where Miller would be starting things out. But that still leaves open the possibility that the rookie tackle’s NFL career could begin at right tackle. Donald Penn’s status still limited while he recovers from an ankle injury made the decision to have Miller at left tackle an easy decision. Through the first two OTA’s, Miller lined up exclusively at left tackle. Penn has still lined up as the first team left tackle in walk-thrus, but come team sessions in the second OTA...

Veterans opening dialogue and bringing much needed stability to Raiders roster

There has been a lot of backlash against Jon Gruden and Reggie McKenzie for loading the Raiders roster with veterans this off-season. The game had supposedly passed Gruden by, he was living in the past and counting on players too old to make a difference anymore. There does some to be rhyme to Gruden’s reason though. New additions like Jordy Nelson who is a mentor for the other receivers. Or Donald Penn who is stepping up to mentor rookie tackles Kolton Miller and Brandon Parker. Or Bruce Irvin setting an example as a mentor and leading the defense, or Derrick Johnson working to prove he...

Penn phoned Gruden angry after drafting Kolton Miller, now mentoring young tackle as future LT

For the past four seasons, Raiders left tackle Donald Penn has had the responsibility of protecting Derek Carr’s blindside, and he has done a damn good job of it. But at 35 years old, and coming off a foot injury — and subsequent surgery — that snapped his incredible streak of 170 regular season consecutive games, Jon Gruden and his staff made a point to plan for the future. With their top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, rather than address the defense, Gruden selected UCLA offensive tackle Kolton Miller with the 15th overall pick. That move didn’t sit well with Penn. At all. “I’m...

Don’t question Derek Carr’s toughness around Donald Penn

Donald Penn is a very tough man, playing in 170 consecutive NFL games, and he wants you to know his quarterback, Derek Carr, is just as tough. Donald Penn and Derek Carr have each other’s back, and when it comes to Penn, it is actually his job to have Carr’s back. Prior to getting Carr […] Don’t question Derek Carr’s toughness around Donald Penn - Just Blog Baby - Just Blog Baby - An Oakland Raiders Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Donald Penn’s return and other notes from Raiders first OTA practice

Each step of the Raiders offseason is another milestone as we see how Jon Gruden’s team is going shaping up. There is still a lot that is in flux, but here is what I observed on Tuesday’s practice Connor Cook was taking the second team reps. This happened last offseason as well, but by the time mandatory minicamps came around, EJ Manuel had clearly outplayed Cook to take the number two spot — a position he didn’t relinquish. Cook appears to be getting an even shot again, so we’ll see if he has made progress from last year. The wide receiver depth chart looks like you might...
