They also have Amari Cooper who is a fantastic route runner. To complete the set, the Raiders need a running back in order for them to be dynamic on all fronts. This offseason, they traded for Marshawn Lynch who came out of retirement just to play for his hometown team. Lynch has it all. He...

Raiders countdown to kickoff: 81 is Pharaoh Brown, another Brown wore it best

Raiders countdown to kickoff: 81 is Pharaoh Brown, another Brown wore it best

Dust off those Brown 81 jerseys in your closet. Just two more numbers in the 80s in our countdown. Today we hit 81 days until the Raiders season opener. These days there’s an 81 jersey running around with the name Brown on the back. TE Pharaoh Brown Coming to the Raiders as an undrafted free agent, Pharaoh Brown has the makings of a tremendous find. At one time, he was one of most promising tight ends in the country. The 6-5, 246-pounder caught 25 passes for 420 yards and 6 touchdowns in nine games for the Ducks in 2014. He was on the radar as a hot draft prospect. Then it all came...

What condition the Raiders position is in heading into training camp: Quarterback

We check on each Raiders position pre-draft to give it a condition of either Strong, Stable, Touch and go, Serious, or Critical. Starter: Derek Carr Depth: Connor Cook, EJ Manuel Additions: EJ Manuel Depatures: Matt McGloin The unquestioned starter is Derek Carr. The third-year pro was named to his second Pro Bowl last season and who was in the discussion for league MVP heading into the final few weeks. He was recently ranked at number 11 in the NFL Top 100. In week 16, Carr was lost to a broken fibula. At the time he was just 63 passing yards from 4000 on the season and had thrown 28...

Football Outsiders says Raiders didn’t have a single team in top 30 over past 30 years on offense or defense

Football Outsiders says Raiders didn’t have a single team in top 30 over past 30 years on offense or defense

Were there any Raiders teams the past 30 years who deserve to be in the top 30 on offense or defense? We all know the Raiders just broke out of a rough patch for the better part of the last 15 years. But what of the previous 15 years? While they didn’t experience anything like the futility from 2003-15, there were some pretty damn good seasons in there. Though according to Football Outsiders none of them placed them among the 30 best offensive or defensive teams. They did, however, manage to place the Raiders’ 2006 team among the worst ever offenses: 5. 2006 Oakland Raiders (minus-37.0...

Hypothetical Oakland Raiders ‘protected players’ list

Hypothetical Oakland Raiders ‘protected players’ list

What if the NFL were getting an expansion team as the NHL is getting now? Who would the Raiders protect from the expansion draft? Before the Raiders ever get to Las Vegas, another professional team will be there. They are the expansion Golden Knights of the NHL. Expansion teams make up much of their roster by plucking from other current league teams. Therefore those other teams are given the chance to protect a certain number of players from being nabbed. On Sunday, NHL teams released their lists of “protected players” who won’t be in the expansion draft for the Las Vegas Knights to...

Raiders countdown to kickoff: 82 is Gabe Holmes, who wore it best?

Raiders countdown to kickoff: 82 is Gabe Holmes, who wore it best?

Hard to believe were in the low 80s now in our countdown. It seems like we were just profiling Amari Cooper at 89. Now we reach the man wearing 82 for the Raiders these days. TE Gabe Holmes It’s hard to believe, but this is the third season in which Gabe Holmes will be entering training camp with ownership over the number 82. Mainly it’s hard to believe because in that time he has never even suited up for a regular season game for the Raiders. Originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue, this 6-5, 240-pound former basketball player showed enough promise in his first...

Raiders QB Derek Carr lands at number 11 in NFL Top 100

Raiders QB Derek Carr lands at number 11 in NFL Top 100

The NFL Top 100 is heading into the home stretch now. Today they counted down from 20 to 11 with Derek Carr landing at the 11 spot. That’s a pretty good ranking for the Raiders’ fourth-year signal caller. Keep in mind, the NFL Top 100 is by the vote of his peers. This isn’t a subjective ranking by an analyst. It’s how the rest of the NFL views them and they see Carr as one of the league’s top 11 players. “He’s a guy that gets it.” Chargers QB Philip Rivers said of Carr. “My conversations with him as a rookie until now, he’s a guy that gets it. He’s a guy that respects...

Raiders season opening opponent just added familiar major weapon to already potent arsenal

Raiders season opening opponent just added familiar major weapon to already potent arsenal

The Raiders face a bulked up Titans offense which just added a dangerous weapon they know very well. For the third season in a row the Raiders will play in Tennessee. The last two meetings, the Raiders have beaten the Titans on their own field. This season, they could prove to be a far more formidable opponent than the previous meetings. The Titans have signed free agent wide receiver Eric Decker, days after he was jettisoned from New York as part of their cap purge. The former Denver third round pick has long been one of the league’s most dangerous and dependable receivers. Prior to an...

Khalil Mack plans to (of course) work over the break, offered sound advice to Raiders teammates

It’s Monday and all’s quiet at the Raiders’ facility for the first time in a while. No training sessions, no practices, no press conferences. The next time the Raiders players will take the field with their teammates will be late July and it will be in Napa. There’s nearly six weeks until they return. In the meantime, Jack Del Rio had a few messages for his players to follow over the break: 1.
