Raiders 2019 training camp depth chart

Minicamps are done and today is the first official day of the Raiders longest offseason break before training camp. With nothing happening between now and then, we have a fairly good idea of what the team’s depth chart will look like when they take the field on July 26.

There has been some movement in the depth chart as the offseason has gone on. Isaiah Crowell was lost to an Achilles injury, prompting the Raiders to bring back Doug Martin. They also signed Richie Incognito, who...

Antonio Brown the lone Raiders player to make PFF Top 50 heading into 2019

There was one splash the Raiders made this offseason that dwarfed all others. It was the trade for Antonio Brown, arguably the best receiver in football. That addition gave the Raiders the only player on Pro Football Focus’s list of the Top 50 NFL players heading into 2019. He landed at 22.

Brown earned a career-low 79.0 receiving grade in 2018, and he still caught 104-of-164 targets for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns on the year. That alone speaks volumes to just how productive Brown has...

Raiders rookie Josh Jacobs not sure whether he wants his story made into a movie

For most of us, the idea that someone would want to make a movie about their life would sound fascinating. Then again, most of us may not have a story worth telling. Raiders rookie Josh Jacobs certainly has a story worth telling. One that a lot of people would be interested in seeing dramatized on film.

Shortly after being drafted, Jacobs was approached several times by producers looking to turn make a movie about his life.

“I was just being hit up by big-name producers, like three or four...

Warriors say goodbye to Oakland with championship loss to Toronto

The era of Warriors basketball in Oakland has come to an end. Golden State Warriors lost their final game at Oracle Arena 114-110 to the Toronto Raptors, handing the Canadian squad their first NBA title in a hard-fought game where neither team could build a sizable lead after the first quarter. The crowd was on fire the whole game, giving the Warriors the impassioned sendoff they deserved after the 42 years they spent in the City.

Perhaps this game would have been different if the Warriors...

Welcome to Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals, wherein the Golden State Warriors will host the Toronto Raptors and try to force a Game 7 in Canada. Tonight's game will be the final one played at Oracle Arena in Oakland before the Warriors depart for San Francisco.

Rookie Johnathan Abram already feeling comfortable in Raiders defense

It didn’t take long for rookie safety and first round pick Johnathan Abram to work his way up the depth chart.

When offseason activities began it was Erik Harris who was working alongside Karl Joseph as the starting safety, but on the third day of OTA’s Abram was brought up to the first team replacing Harris.

“Like I said, I just go out there every single day, do my job,” said Abram. “I made a couple plays, coach moved me up. So I just have to continue to go out here and...

Antonio Brown mic’d up at OTAs, reveals explosive player who already has rapport with Derek Carr

This week’s OTAs were a chance for the whole team to work together and work with the coaches prior to July’s training camp, and a chance for media and fans to get a good look at many of the new Raiders acquisitions. Perhaps the most impactful of the new Raiders will be wide receiver Antonio Brown, and he was mic’d up during practice this week.

The video starts off by showing Brown working through the press coverage of a coach and running down the sideline to catch a deep pass. He then...

Karl Joseph ‘quietly become a leader’, still looking to prove himself ‘contract stuff will handle itself’

This offseason the Raiders opted not to pick up Karl Joseph’s fifth year option, Joseph leading some to wonder if he is in the teams future plans. But he has decided he isn’t going to worry about the things he can’t control.

Joseph was drafted in the first round of the 2015 draft under the old regime of Jack Del Rio and Reggie Mckenzie. There aren’t many around from the Del Rio and McKenzie draft classes but Joseph is one of the few holdovers.

His career got off to a slow start...

NBA trading season is essentially upon us

While the NBA’s offseason trade market generally doesn’t officially swing into gear until after the NBA Finals end, teams can technically begin making deals after they’re eliminated from the playoffs. That means all 28 clubs that aren’t taking part in the Finals are eligible to make trades now, if they so choose — the Hawks and Nets agreed to the first one of the summer last week. As teams weigh potential offseason trades, they’ll have to take into account a few groups of players...
