8 Players on Oakland Raiders' 2017 Roster Bubble

The volume on training camp buzz increased a notch with players around the league reporting back to the practice field. The Oakland Raiders still have time before their offseason action continues on Saturday.

Coming into camp, rookies, developing players looking to make the 53-man roster for the first time and veterans have something to prove.

Head coach Jack Del Rio encourages in-house competition before the games count in September. As a result, you can disregard last year's...

Look: Raiders training camp field prepped and ready to go as rookies arrive in Napa

Several players arrived in Napa today for the Raiders’ pre-camp warm-up which starts Monday. Mostly it will be rookies, first year players, and the quarterbacks. One rookie who made his arrival known is 7th round pick Jylan Ware.

Ranking the AFC West: Guards

After a sketchy group of tackles in the AFC West, we move on to a pretty solid group of guards in the AFC West from top to bottom. There is one duo that stands out above the others, but after that it gets far more hazy. They all have things going for them with some question marks as well.

1. Raiders -- Kelechi Osemele, Gabe Jackson

The top guard tandem in the NFL. No question. They didn’t give up a sack last season and paved the way for the league’s 6th ranked run defense. Osemele in...

Amari Cooper shows up to training camp looking jacked

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper has been doing some serious work in the weight room ahead of the 2017 NFL season.He showed up to camp on Sunday looking like he ate Khalil Mack for breakfast. We sure hope that extra bulk doesn’t slow this kid down.Remember, we’re talking about a young man who torched the track at the combine a couple years back, running the 40 in 4.42 seconds. He weighed in at 211 pounds at the time, which was plenty of weight for a 6-foot-1 receiver.Now Cooper...

PFT preseason power rankings No. 5: Oakland Raiders

The biggest news of the Raiders offseason had little to do with the team they’ll be putting on the field in September. That news was, of course, that they’ll be moving to Las Vegas after a long and fruitless attempt to find a stadium deal in Oakland. The fact that they’re on their way out…

Raiders countdown to kickoff: 49 is Jamize Olawale, who wore it best?

As of today we are exactly 7 weeks from the start of the Raiders 2017 season. That’s 49 days in case you didn’t have a calculator handy. Let’s look at the man wearing 49 these days for the Silver & Black.

FB Jamize Olawale

This San Francisco native and Long Beach Poly grad was signed off the Cowboys' practice squad back in 2012. The Raiders had plans for him. The next season he saw action in every game at fullback and hasn’t looked back

In many ways, he is a Marcel Reece clone....

Big Smooth Route 66 T-shirt

It’s about time the man who just got his big extension as one of the anchors on the Raiders’ offensive line gets a T-shirt of his own. Number 66 Gabe Jackson is a road grader, who opens up huge lanes for running backs.

Back in the glory days, Raiders backs would follow the lead of Gene Upshaw aka ‘Highway 63’ to paydirt. For the past three seasons, and at least the next six seasons in the future, the Raiders backs take a trip across The Nation behind ‘Big Smooth’ Gabe Jackson...

Ranking the AFC West: Offensive tackle

Once again, the AFC West is not teeming with great tackle play. It easily takes the top spot so far as the weakest position group in the division. Then again, with the known elite pass rushers they have the face six times a season, it also isn’t to most enviable job in the league either.

1. Donald Penn, Marshall Newhouse/Austin Howard

This feels like Déjà vu. I feel like the Raiders were the top AFC West team at tackle last year despite serious questions at right tackle. Once again the...

Raiders' Marshawn Lynch helping keep legendary Oakland restaurant open

Marshawn Lynch is Oakland. Marshawn Lynch has always been Oakland. Even when he was playing for the Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks, Lynch’s Oakland roots were never too far from him. So when Lynch decided to come out of retirement to play for the Raiders, it was not necessarily a huge surprise.Not only is this the city Lynch hails from, he remembers growing up in downtrodden areas of Oakland. Since then, Lynch has made it one of his primary goals to do whatever he can within the...

Tamba Hali goes off on twitter about lack of playing time, asks if still needed in Kansas City

There’s trouble in paradise as the once KC sack master is furious with his role with the Chiefs.

Not so long ago, Tamba Hali was one of the NFL’s most feared pass rushers. He and Justin Houston made up one of the fiercest pass rush duos in the NFL. Just off his 11th NFL season at age 33, he is not happy AT ALL about his dwindling playing time. In particular getting just 7 snaps in the team’s playoff loss to the Steelers.

He let everyone know how he feels in a long Twitter rant...

Raiders countdown to kickoff: 50 is Ben Heeney, who wore it best?

This time next week, the Raiders will be taking the field for their first training camp practice. And next thing you know, they’ll be taking the field for their season opener. That’s 50 days away and time flies. For instance, it seems like just yesterday this next guy was a rookie.

LB Ben Heeney

Chosen in the 5th round of the 2015 draft, out of Kansas, this childhood Chiefs fan, couldn't have been more excited the Raiders took a chance on him in the draft.

He was a tackle machine for...

NFL Network analysts made over/under predictions about Marshawn Lynch’s season so we crunched the numbers

Expectations for the kind of season Marshawn Lynch will have are all over the map it seems. It’s anyone’s guess, really, considering Lynch hasn’t taken a snap in since November 15, 2015 and turned 31 in April.

The latest prediction comes from the NFL Total Access crew which includes Derek’s brother David — who admits he’s a bit biased -- and Ike Taylor.

The question was an over/under on stats put up by Marshawn Lynch for carries, yards per game, and touchdowns on the...

Look: Tiger Woods redesigns pool table with Oakland Raiders cloth

While the rest of the world’s best golfers are at Royal Birkdale and competing for The Open Championship, Tiger Woods remains at home not only nursing his injuries, but redesigning his pool table in a pretty sweet way. Even if you’re not an Oakland Raiders fan you have to admit, that’s a pretty sweet look. We have to admire Tiger’s attention to detail with not only the cloth, but the balls.

Tiger Woods shows off new Raiders pool table and billiard balls (Yes, even Raiders balls)

Tiger Woods likes the Raiders. I mean, he really likes them. The Southern California (Orange County) native had the Raiders in Los Angeles throughout most of his childhood and teenage years. They moved there when he was 7-years old. The Raiders moved back to Oakland in 1994, within a year of Tiger attending Stanford right across the Bay. So, yeah, big fan.

Today he showed off his newly covered Raiders pool table, complete with Raiders billiard balls.

New cloth for the pool table....

Terrelle Pryor: ‘Never in a thousand years did I see myself being a quarterback...I mean receiver’

Those Freudian slips’ll get ya every time.

It seems like a generation ago that Terrelle Pryor was lining up behind center for the Raiders. Even longer ago that he was selected in the third round of the supplemental draft.

These days he’s a wide receiver. And from all indications, a very good one. In his second season at the position with the Browns -- his first as a full time starter — he caught 77 passes for 1007 yards.

In the offseason the 28-year-old balked at the idea of...

Ranking the AFC West: Tight ends

After the strong group of wide receivers in the division made it a tough call, the tight end position is far easier to organize. There is absolutely no wiggle room in this order as far as I see it and the range is vast. From elite to pathetic in four teams.

1. Chiefs — Travis Kelce

This is a complete no-brainer pick. Kelce is an absolute beast of a tight end. He was a Pro Bowler in 2015 and an All Pro in 2016, leading all NFL tight ends with 1125 receiving yards and was second in...
