Report has Marshawn Lynch contract figures with Raiders much bigger than originally reported

Latest report has Marshawn Lynch with some obscene contract numbers. Agents like to tout the max numbers in their clients’ contracts. Many of those incentives are not intended to be reached, but make for pretty window dressing. That being said, even the base numbers for Marshawn Lynch’s contract with the Raiders in the report put out by Ian Rapoport are bigger than originally thought. Final terms for Marshawn Lynch's deal with the #Raiders: 2-years with a base of $9 million with max of $16.5M, source said.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 26, 2017 The initial reports have Lynch...

Marshawn Lynch to wear Raiders legendary number 24

Marshawn Lynch to wear Raiders legendary number 24

The number 24 is a legendary one for the Raiders. It was available for Marshawn Lynch and he takes it. One of the questions with Marshawn Lynch joining the Raiders was what number he would be wearing. Today he was signed with the team where he immediately chose the number 24. Shortly after signing with the team, he was fitted for a helmet, which he liked so much, he wore it out the facility. That helmet had the number 24 on the back of it. All along 24 was the most likely number for him considering that’s what he wore in Seattle and the number has been available since Charles Woodson...

What Marshawn Lynch brings to Raiders

What Marshawn Lynch brings to Raiders

Today the Raiders made the signing of Marshawn Lynch official. Here’s what he brings to the table. Aside from the off the field benefits Marshawn Lynch brings to the Raiders franchise, of which there are many, there is of course the benefits he brings as a player on the field. Yes, he fills a need and yes his playing style will complement running backs Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington well. But if he can return to the form he was prior to his injury-shortened 2015 season and subsequent retirement, his addition to this Raiders offense will be considerable. A Raiders official told Dan...

Could Adrian Peterson contract bring Raiders, Marshawn Lynch figures together?

Could Adrian Peterson contract bring Raiders, Marshawn Lynch figures together?

Adrian Peterson’s contract with the Saints looks like a pretty good blueprint to get a deal done with Marshawn Lynch in Oakland. Since reports broke out a couple weeks ago of the Raiders and Marshawn Lynch seemingly within the stroke of a pen on finalizing a deal, negotiations seemed to have slowed to a stop. From the sounds of it, there isn’t much distance between what the Raiders are offering and what Lynch’s people will accept. That’s not a large gap if both sides are willing to concede and it’s possible the contract Adrian Peterson just signed with the New Orleans Saints...

2017 Draft: Wide Receiver Rankings

Raiders 2017 Draft Radar: Safeties

Pegging what the Raiders plan will be at safety can be difficult. They need depth at both free safety and strong safety and a future starter as well. Last year they spent their top pick on Karl Joseph at 14 overall. He currently mans the strong safety the bulk of the time, but would be better suited to move to free safety. That’s the spot Reggie Nelson occupies. Nelson signed a two-year deal prior to last season and his five interceptions earned him another trip to the Pro Bowl. Overall, however, the secondary was a mess for the Raiders last season, and in times like this few players are...

The schedule for the upcoming draft along with draft order, time between picks, TV and where the Raiders select in each round. Are you ready for the draft? You should be. From the moment the season ended, it's been the most talked about and anticipated event in the offseason. They call it the offseason Super Bowl for good reason. Though in some ways it's even bigger because unlike the Super Bowl, this event every team participates and everyone comes out feeling like they set themselves up to make a run at the actual Super Bowl. The Raiders currently have eight picks in this draft. They have...

Raiders 2017 Draft Pick or Pass: Sleepers

Raiders 2017 Draft Pick or Pass: Sleepers

Is there a guy just off-the-radar our staff writers like with the No. 24 pick? We’ve examined a number of the traditional projections for Oakland with the No. 24 pick — but Reggie McKenzie is notorious for grabbing guys no one else expected. In his first full draft it was DJ Hayden, and just last year it was Karl Joseph — both highly rated players, but not guys projected to be gone as early as they were. It’s no secret Oakland has needs all over the place on defense and with a draft class deep in defensive talent, it’s possible someone has caught Reggie McKenzie’s eye. But what...

Raiders 2017 Draft Radar: Defensive tackle

Even before the team made the expected release of Dan Williams, they needed help at defensive tackle. Many draft projections have focuses on the team’s need for interior pass rush, but it’s more than that. They also struggled at stopping the run. Williams’s production in 2015 was night and day from what he offered last season. And when he came to camp overweight in 2016, he lost his job and never got it back. That would be fine if he was demoted due to another player beating him out, but that wasn’t the case. The defensive tackle position was a revolving door last season as the...

Ten years ago today JaMarcus Russell was on top of the NFL world

Can you believe it’s been ten years? To commemorate it, we dig up a time capsule from just before the Raiders made JaMarcus Russell the top pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. Ten years. That’s how long it’s been since JaMarcus Russell was the toast of the upcoming NFL draft. The Raiders had the number one overall pick and were in dire need of a quarterback. The freakish physical specimen with loads of barely tapped potential was the favorite to be the pick as the Raiders next franchise quarterback. We know the story after that. Russell flamed out quickly in Oakland, going on to become...
