Sunday 2/17 AAF game thread: Orlando vs. San Antonio

Welcome to the second day of the AAF’s second week of play! Today the games open with the Orlando Apollos against the San Antonio Commanders. Later on today will be the San Diego Fleet hosting the Atlanta Legends.

Should Raiders trade for Dolphins CB Xavien Howard?

Possessing three-first round picks in a single NFL draft creates a ton of possibilities. The Oakland Raiders could use their three picks to select top talent in the 2019 NFL draft, use them to trade up or down, or use them as bargaining chips to trade for established NFL talent.

In Oakland’s case, it could use a lot of help in the cornerback room, which boasts just one promising player in Gareon Conley. As such, ESPN brought up a possible trade scenario on Friday that would involve the...

Former Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie joining Dolphins front office

When Jon Gruden was hired on as the new Raiders coach last year, many people speculated that Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie’s days were numbered with the team. That proved to be true, as McKenzie left the team during the season, but nobody believed an executive with his skills and track record would be unemployed for long.

And today, McKenzie latched onto another AFC team as he signed on in a role with the Miami Dolphins.

Report: Former Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie joining Dolphins' front office

Former Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie will resurface as a member of the Miami Dolphins’ front office, according to a report. The Dolphins plan to hire McKenzie as a senior personnel executive, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports (on Twitter). McKenzie, 56, has not been connected with any teams since being fired by the Raiders in December. He served as Oakland’s GM for seven years, though the final season saw the Raiders strip him of much of his power and give personnel...

Raiders playing in Oakland for 2019 season becoming more likely

The Raiders have missed the NFL’s Super Bowl LIII deadline for resolving their 2019 stadium situation, but they may be closing in on finalizing this saga. The likelihood that, after all of the talk of a move elsewhere following Oakland’s lawsuit, the Raiders will play in Oakland has increased. More discussions are on tap next week, with a near-future resolution in sight. “We’ll talk against next week. Again, this will come to a conclusion one way or another in the next week or so,”...

Feb. 16 AAF game open thread: Salt Lake vs. Birmingham

Welcome to the second week of the Alliance of American Football. Isn’t it nice to have some actual football after the Super Bowl? It’s usually a dead zone until the Combine and the Draft, but the AAF seems to have a pretty good product.

There are two games today, the first is already under way and features the Salt Lake Stallions against the Birmingham Iron. Salt Lake today will be led by former Arkansas Razorback product Austin Allen under center. As you might expect, there are plenty...

S&B Pridecast: Draft predictions, FA targets and more in our latest mailbag

In this episode of the Silver & Black Pridecast, Levi and Tyler answer your questions.

The offseason is nearly two weeks in now. Free agency and draft talk is heating up. Next up is the scouting combine. Should we put a lot of weight into what we see from players at the combine?

Mock draft season is in full swing. Tyler and myself give our takes of Rashan Gary as the most popular player in mock drafts. Is he worth the fourth overall pick? Or would he be a reach at that spot? Who should we...

Raiders could return to Oakland Coliseum for 2019 season

The Raiders have been a vagabond franchise for nearly their entire existence, with never a stadium to call their own. Their situation has never been as tenuous as in the last few months, with the team having essentially said goodbye to the Oakland Coliseum without a destination in mind for their home games in 2019. But that could all be coming to an end soon and the Raiders could spend one more year in Oakland, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Michael Gehlken, who since the...

Don’t get your hopes up, these free agents are likely headed for the franchise tag

If Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock are able to return the Raiders to greatness a good place to start is the 2019 offseason. There is a reason Jon Gruden said this was the most important offseason in recent memory.

With pockets full of cash and three picks in round one, the Raiders have a golden opportunity to build the foundation for future success in the years to come.

The first domino to fall in the process is free agency which begins with the new league year on March 13. There are...

Dolphins sign DE Tank Carradine

The Dolphins signed defensive end Tank Carradine, as Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald tweets. The veteran has 77 tackles and 5.5 sacks to his credit across 45 career games. Carradine signed with the Raiders last spring, but was cut in early October after playing limited snaps. Afterwards, he hit the workout circuit, but did not find a new home for the 2018 season. Carradine has yet to live up to his status as a 2013 second-round pick. Last year, he notched just 1.5 sacks and 19 tackles for...

Raiders hire former Jets offensive coordinator John Morton as assistant

The Jets’ offensive coordinator for one season, John Morton will return to an NFL sideline after missing the 2018 season. The Raiders announced they hired him as a senior offensive assistant.

Grading Raiders 2016 draft class after three seasons

Some say you can’t accurately judge a draft class until after their third NFL season. Well, here we are, looking at you 2016 draft class. Time flies, really. It doesn’t feel like it’s been three years since the Raiders made these selections. Probably mostly because not many of them have played a lot of football since they were drafted. Let’s take a look at that class, shall we?
