Latavius Murray expected to miss offseason program with Vikings after ankle surgery

Latavius Murray expected to miss offseason program with Vikings after ankle surgery

Here’s an interesting development. While the Raiders were said to be contemplating re-signing Latavius Murray, he was in need of ankle surgery. Murray ultimately signed with the Vikings, who signed him despite the need for surgery coming up in his physical with the team. That surgery was performed Wednesday. “Vikings RB Latavius Murray had successful ankle surgery today,” The Vikings said in an official statement. “The surgery was performed by Dr. Bob Anderson in Charlotte, North Carolina. We were aware of the required surgery prior to signing Latavius on March 16. Latavius is...

Raiders entire 2013 draft class, Reggie McKenzie’s first full class as GM, now officially gone

Raiders entire 2013 draft class, Reggie McKenzie’s first full class as GM, now officially gone

There is now officially nothing left to show for Reggie McKenzie’s first two drafts with the Raiders. He had already waved goodbye to his 2012 class last year, which didn’t have a pick until the end of the third round. The 2013 draft was his first full class. The last domino to fall from that class was Mychal Rivera who today signed with the Jaguars on a 2-year deal meaning there is no longer a player on the Raiders roster from that class either. Let’s quickly run through this class and how and when they departed. Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas -- Round 4 He was the first to go. There...

Former Raiders TE Mychal Rivera lands with Jaguars on 2-year deal

Another Raiders free agent has found a home elsewhere. Nearing two weeks into free agency, former Raiders sixth round pick Mychal Rivera has signed a 2-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. This according to multiple reports. The deal is for 2 years according to NFL media’s Mike Garafolo, with the second year on a team option. On the Jaguars' deal with TE Mychal Rivera that @JeffDarlington reported, year 2 is a team option.

Contract figures on EJ Manuel, Jelani Jenkins, Jon Condo are in with updated Raiders room under salary cap

The latest free agents to sign with the Raiders are quarterback EJ Manuel and linebacker Jelani Jenkins along with the re-signing of long snapper Jon Condo. Their contract numbers are trickling out, giving us an updated salary cap figure. First let’s look at the re-signing of Jon Condo. He returns on a one-year. $1.08 million deal with $300K guaranteed. That puts his cap figure at $695K according to Overthecap.com numbers. For those who may be wondering why Condo got just a one-year deal, well Sebastian Janikowski has just one year left on his contract. At which point Condo will be 37 and...

Report: NFL makes Raiders Las Vegas relocation fee more workable

Report: NFL makes Raiders Las Vegas relocation fee more workable

For all the talk from Roger Goodell and the NFL about wanting to keep teams from relocating, their actions sure seem to tell another story. We already saw them throw out the supposed rules regarding relocation to pave the way for the Rams to leave St Louis for Los Angeles with the Chargers now joining them. Now it looks like they’re doing their part to help the Raiders skip town as well. Rams owner Stan Kroenke and Chargers owner Dean Spanos are both quite wealthy. So paying the $650 million relocation fee wasn’t a major issue for them. For Mark Davis it would be. He isn’t rich by...

Controversial Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon has pre-draft visit with Raiders

Controversial Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon has pre-draft visit with Raiders

Monday the Raiders played host to former Oklahoma running back, Joe Mixon. A byproduct of the NFL excluding him from the NFL combine, which would have been the best chance NFL teams had to see him as a group. Joe Mixon continued his pre-draft visits Mon. with #Raiders, source said. I believe this visit isn't part of top-30 as he's from Bay area.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) March 21, 2017 A Bay Area native himself (Oakley), it was a local trip for Mixon. Even still, having their name in any way associated with Mixon is not something you would expect from the Raiders. The reason for...

Newly signed Raiders QB EJ Manuel says he was not given chance to grow in Buffalo, “I know what kind of player I can be”

Newly signed Raiders QB EJ Manuel says he was not given chance to grow in Buffalo, “I know what kind of player I can be”

It’s not often you see a team take a quarterback in the first round as the Buffalo Bills did in 2013, only to seemingly move on from that player 14 starts into his career. That’s what EJ Manuel says happened with him. He was named the starter right out the gates and after a rocky rookie campaign, he found himself on the bench in favor of Kyle Orton four games into his second season. “It was very surprising,” Manuel said of his benching. “You know, obviously being 2-2 and after losing to Houston, [former Bills Head] Coach [Doug] Marrone made the change and it was something I never...

Raiders make their first move to bring back their own by re-signing LS Jon Condo

Raiders make their first move to bring back their own by re-signing LS Jon Condo

No unrestricted free agent carried a higher priority to be re-signed than long snapper Jon Condo. The 35-year-old has been the team’s long snapper the past decade as a steady hand for kicker Sebastian Janikowski and punters/holders Shane Lechler and Marquette King. Condo finally saw the playoffs this past season. He was the longest tenured player on the team to have never seen a playoff game. Sebastian Janikowski’s contract goes through 2017, so holding onto Condo at least until then was a great idea. We consider NFL players to reach or near the end of their careers at 35, but long...

Breaking: Raiders sign free agent QB EJ Manuel

Breaking: Raiders sign free agent QB EJ Manuel

Today the Raiders officially signed free agent quarterback EJ Manuel. The veteran QB will compete with Connor Cook for a backup behind starter Derek Carr. Manuel was a first round pick out of Florida State by the Bills in 2013. After some promising moments but overall struggling as a rookie, he was benched his second season for free agent addition, Kyle Orton, and then Tyrod Taylor came in and took the job in 2015 and hasn’t let go of it. The Bills made a long term investment in Taylor this offseason and let their former top pick go. Manuel’s addition makes sense due to his familiarity...
