Andy Reid quickly shuts down Derrick Johnson return idea

Johnson was released by the Oakland Raiders earlier this week. The Oakland Raiders released all-time Kansas City Chiefs leading tackler Derrick Johnson on Tuesday, and the immediate (and expected) reaction among some Chiefs fans was, “Let’s bring him back!” Our own John Dixon drafted a piece on why that probably is not the answer to the Chiefs’ defensive struggles in 2018. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was asked by the local Kansas City media about the prospect of bringing Johnson back on Wednesday. “Brett (Veach) does all that stuff,” Reid explained, “but right now we haven’t...

Seahawks-Raiders inactives: Nick Vannett, Dion Jordan out

Now the third-year Seahawks TE is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders at Wembley Stadium in London, England.

5 Qs, 5 As with Silver and Black Pride

The Oakland Raiders did something both shocking and kind of expected this year when they replaced head coach Jack Del Rio with longtime Monday Night Football commentator (and former Super Bowl-winning head coach) Jon Gruden. Any positive results from the hiring were not expected to be immediate, but through five games, this has to be close to the worst case scenario. The Raiders are 1-4 with DVOA’s 29th-ranked defense and an offense that has already seen Derek Carr throw eight interceptions.
