Watch: Former Raiders, now Chiefs CB David Amerson gets roasted by Falcons rookie WR Calvin Ridley

Not to rub salt in anyone’s wounds here, but he is a rival now, so... This offseason, the Raiders changed out their cornerbacks. They cut Sean Smith and David Amerson, and signed Rashaan Melvin and Daryl Worley. While Smith has spent the past five months in jail — getting out last week — Amerson was signed by the division rival Chiefs. Well, the Chiefs are playing the Falcons in their second preseason game tonight in Atlanta, and Amerson just got burnt badly by Falcons rookie wide receiver Calvin Ridley. .@CalvinRidley1 taking the top off defenses! #KCvsATL...

Raiders end camp with a hoard of wide receivers hovering around the roster bubble

Raiders end camp with a hoard of wide receivers hovering around the roster bubble

This is the time of year that the 53-man roster projections come out. If you’re into that sort of thing and are attempting to put one together for the Raiders, no position is going to be more difficult to predict that wide receiver. The one certainty is the starters — Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson. The certainties end there. We can probably figure that since the team traded a third round pick to acquire Martavis Bryant that he will make the team. But it’s clear he has had some issues that have annoyed Jon Gruden such as getting his playbook down and not missing practice. This week...

In deck stacked with offensive versatility Derek Carrier is Gruden’s ‘joker’

In deck stacked with offensive versatility Derek Carrier is Gruden’s ‘joker’

It is safe to say Gruden has big plans for the tight end. Upon returning to the NFL sidelines, Gruden made sure his offense had an abundance of versatile players that could move around on the field to throw defenses off guard. But on a team littered with recognizable skill players such as Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson, Gruden’s ‘joker’ can be easily forgotten. That is until defenses face him. When NFL free agency kicked off in March and big-time names were signed making national headlines, Gruden instead opted to make tight end Derek Carrier one of his first signings, inking the...

Bears listed as potential trade destination for Khalil Mack by former agent

Could “The Mack” really return to Chicago of all places?
