Report: Raiders seeking first-round pick for Amari Cooper

The Raiders have wide receiver Amari Cooper on the trade block, and they are seeking more for him than you might expect. The Raiders are seeking a first-round selection in exchange for the former No. 4 overall pick, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com hears.  Cooper’s talent is undeniable, but his performance has been inconsistent for the past two seasons and some have questioned his work ethic. Cooper earned back-to-back Pro Bowl nods in his first two NFL seasons, but it’s hard to see another club...

Asking price for WR Amari Cooper looks to be a first-round pick | Silver and Black Pride

The last time there was this much smoke around Raider trade talks, Khalil Mack ended up as a Chicago Bear, and he most certainly was worth the money he was asking for. The Raiders weren’t shopping him either, but here we are. If the Raiders get a good enough deal to move Cooper, don’t think they won’t take it.

Wait, wasn't Derek Carr supposed to thrive under Jon Gruden?

The Raiders brought in Jon Gruden to "fix" Derek Carr, but Carr has looked a shell of his 2016 self so far this season.

Raiders CB Rashaan Melvin ‘frustrated’, pledges not to ‘change his style’

None of us here are pleased with the situation the Raiders are in right now, and that goes for the players as well. Earlier today, Raiders corner Rashaan Melvin tweeted the following:

Frustrated and upset. I’m tired of it!

— Rashaan Melvin (@Rmelvin30) October 15, 2018

A few hours later, he followed up with this Tweet:

I’m done trying to change my style. It’s not me. Back to what I know and what got me here!! ? #22

Latest Raiders loss could bring a grown man to tears

Men crying in public is nothing new. Throughout history there has been plenty of famous men who were spotted with tears flowing. Years ago it was unacceptable for men to cry. Men have always been a symbol of strength and emotional stability.

However, times are a changing. Men crying in public is far less taboo and much more acceptable than ever before.

There is a great debate surrounding Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks at Wembley Stadium in London. Bay area radio personality, Damon...

City of Oakland set to sue the Raiders over relocation

The situation between Oakland and their Raiders has now gotten to the point that the city is about to sue the soon-to-be relocated franchise. Said lawsuit will likely be filed later in the week and could prompt the Raiders to leave following this season. Among other things, the city will be requesting that the Raiders’ name remains in Oakland once the silver and black does indeed move to Las Vegas. We previously focused on this threat of a lawsuit. At that point, the Raiders themselves...

Asking price for WR Amari Cooper looks to be a first-round pick

There’s been plenty of rumors flying around in the last week about the Raiders trading some of their stars, including Amari Cooper and Karl Joseph. And today, Ian Rappoport had something a little more concrete for us to chew on.

Monday Night Football open thread: 49ers vs. Packers

Greetings, Raider Nation! There is one more game this week, as the 49ers travel to the semi-frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. The Niners have several more games on prime time this year, which ares going to be completely unwatchable now that QB Jimmy Garropolo is out for the year. Whoops!

The Packers, for the time being, still have Aaron Rodgers. He can win games on his own (right, Bears?) and he will have to considering the Packers are generally void of any other offensive talent. So will the...

Report: Browns to meet with LB NaVorro Bowman

Former 49ers and Raiders linebacker NaVorro Bowman is scheduled to work out for the Browns on Tuesday, a source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). This marks Bowman’s first known workout since the start of the season. Bowman, 30, spent his entire career with the Niners before being released last October. He was productive after hooking on with the Raiders, but new head coach Jon Gruden opted against re-signing him in the spring. Between his ten contests in Oakland and five in...

Amari Cooper situation shows Jon Gruden is running a clown show

Multiple media reports prior to Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks in London indicated that the Oakland Raiders were open to trading former Pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper. While Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has since denied said speculation, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that Cooper is indeed on the market ahead of the Oct. 30 trade deadline. The one caveat? Oakland is said to be looking for a first-round pick in return for the struggling pass catcher. At the very...

Derek Carr reportedly expected to play through arm injury

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr took one of the worst beatings of his career in his team’s 27-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, and he left the game with an arm injury after taking his sixth sack of the day. Fortunately, the bye week should give him enough time to heal so he doesn’t have to miss a start. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Carr is not expected to miss a start. Carr was favoring his left arm as he left the field on Sunday, but he was later shown trying...

The Morning After: Raiders hit rock bottom in awful performance against Seahawks

Well, that wasn’t fun. It’s strange when a 27-3 beatdown was actually much worse than the final score would have you believe. The offensive line completely imploded, the running game was non existent, the passing game was unable to connect anything past 5 yards for most of the game, the corners were getting bested even when they were in good position, the punting was atrocious and the pass rush was absolutely terrible.

Everything about the Oakland Raiders loss to the Seattle Seahawks was...

Raiders fans already counting down to Jon Gruden's demise

The Oakland Raiders are a complete and utter dumpster fire under first-year head coach Jon Gruden. They are coming off a humiliating 27-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in London and boast a league-worst 1-5 record on the season. Sunday’s loss was about as bad as it gets. It included quarterback Derek Carr appearing to cry on the field. It also came mere hours after reports surfaced that the Raiders were looking to trade multiple core pieces before the Oct. 30 deadline. It’s bad. Really,...

Raider Film Room: Breaking down the loss in London

Derek Carr and company traveled to another country this weekend only to be served a thorough butt whooping with a side of Fish and Chips. Quite frankly, Raider’s fans abroad deserved a much more spirited competition than what the Raiders put on the field in Wembley Stadium.

The Raiders defense flashed moments of solid pass coverage and rallying to the football. But ultimately mental errors or maybe just getting caught staring at the dazzling Russell Wilson led to their demise.

But the...

Raiders Week 6 snap counts vs Seahawks: Gareon Conley doesn’t see any defensive snaps against Seattle

If you thought it was ridiculous to see how few snaps CB Gareon Conley saw on defense last week, you are going to be irate this week. In a 27-3 blowout loss to the Seattle Seahawks Conley saw precisely zero defensive snaps, not even one. He only saw the field 3 times in the entire game, and they were all on special teams.

Earlier this week the coaching staff had commented that they consider Conley to still be a rookie after missing almost all of last season with injuries. They have now...

Jon Gruden refutes Amari Cooper trade rumors

Are the Oakland Raiders shopping wide receiver Amari Cooper? While one prominent reporter says yes, the head coach is saying no. FOX Sports’s Jay Glazer reported Sunday that the Raiders were shopping Cooper around the league, but head coach Jon Gruden refuted that report when asked about it after his team’s 27-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. It’s not an airtight denial, but it is still a denial, and it comes after Cooper was concussed during the game. It’s worth noting that the...

Loss in London shows every move Jon Gruden has made is leading to disaster

Jon Gruden is making horrible decisions this year and they were all exposed against the Seattle Seahawks.

Jon Gruden must be stopped!

While it’s true that the Oakland Raiders went 6-10 in 2017, they went 12-4 with the same roster in 2016. So there was talent on the team when Gruden was first hired. But there were some schematic problems he was supposed to answer but so far, he hasn’t done that at all. He’s put schemes first and made personnel decisions that made the Raiders worse.

Raiders vs. Seahawks: 4 Winners, 4 Losers

Another game, another complete disaster by the Raiders in London, who frankly should just never go to England to play again. This was just as bad as the debacle a few years ago that got Dennis Allen fired, and if Jon Gruden hadn’t taken the job just this year he should be getting fired too. This was an unacceptable performance in every aspect of the game, and the low point of a season filled with nothing but low points.

Let’s look at today’s winners and losers, keeping in mind that...
