Rod Woodson with elite backpedal on recent criticisms of Raiders

Contrary to popular belief in the Bay Area, not everyone has shown unmitigated excitement for the Oakland Raiders’ hiring of Jon Gruden. Former Raiders defensive back and coach Rod Woodson has certainly not been one of Gruden’s biggest advocates this offseason. In March, Woodson criticized the size and length of Jon Gruden’s contract, his coaching abilities, and some of the offseason moves Gruden made including getting rid of Michael Crabtree and signing Jordy Nelson and Doug Martin. and saying Derek Carr is no Aaron Rodgers. A refresher on his remarks can be found here. Recently,...

Ryan Switzer more than a return man, seen a ‘force’ at slot receiver

Ryan Switzer more than a return man, seen a ‘force’ at slot receiver

The three receivers you hear about in Oakland these days are Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson, and Martavis Bryant. But attending minicamp, that’s not the trio you see most on the field. Coop is a constant. But after him, there’s a steady rotation between Nelson, Bryant and Ryan Switzer. Bryant and Switzer were both acquired in draft day trades. And as we’re coming to find, Gruden does nothing without a purpose. He liked both players, and he made a move to get them. At the time of his acquisition, it was noted that Switzer was drafted by Dallas last year with Rich Bisaccia as special teams...

Receiver/returner Ryan Switzer hoping to carve out role with Raiders

Ryan Switzer said he was headed for the mall in April when he got the call from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones saying he’d been traded to the Raiders. In Oakland, then, Switzer can appreciate the array of options around him. On one flank, there’s Amari Cooper, on the other Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant. For Switzer (5-8, 185), who’s trying to make the Raiders’ roster as a slot receiver, those outside passing targets are a benefit. “I think you look at the great slot receivers in this league and all of them have got great outside guys around them,”...

Executive give Raiders offseason mixed reviews as ESPN grades them in bottom ten

Some criticisms you take more seriously than others. Or you should, anyway. I realize many fans tend to write off even the most objective opinions about their team if they aren’t positive. But when executives speak, you should listen. ESPN’s Mike Sando took a poll of NFL executives and collected quotes about how each NFL team’s offseason is viewed. Then he used that to form a grade. Grade: C+ Bringing back Jon Gruden energized the franchise and its fans, making the Raiders more relevant than they’ve been in years. The addition of aging, declining free agents such as Jordy Nelson,...
