The Oakland Raiders have released defensive tackle Dan Williams, who signed as a free agent from the Arizona Cardinals in 2015.

The Oakland Raiders have released Marce Reecel according to Doug Kyed a Patriots Beat Reporter. Reece who was suspended for the first three games of the season is one of the handful of players who were on the roster before Reggie McKenzie took over. Reece had been with the Raiders since 2009 and enjoyed a couple of Probowl appearances as a fullback.

According to TMZ Aldon Smith has checked into rehab. This was after a video surfaced on Periscope that appeared to show Smith smoking a blunt. The video ended with Smith saying, "They don't know it's me, it's not like I put Aldon Smith." This isn't that big of a blow for the Raiders because he was not going to be eligible to play until November, but it's not exactly good news for the Raiders.

The time has come for the owners to gather and vote on which project they prefer for the NFL's relocation to Los Angeles. In one corner you have mega-billionaire Stan Kroenke and his Inglewood proposal and in the other corner you have the tag team of Mark Davis and Dean Spanos and their Carson proposal. This is the classic handicap match that the WWE would be proud of. The unlikely partnership between the Chargers and Raiders is like when Hulk Hogan shocked everyone and joined the NWO. It was weird, didn't make a lot of sense but it changed the landscape of wrestling. Meanwhle, Kroenke is Golberg who doesn't lose, but is his time coming?

Even at their inception the Oakland Raiders were embroiled in controversy. They weren’t even supposed to exist, but in 1961 the Minneapolis-St. Paul franchise in the AFL bolted to become the Minnesota Vikings, and the AFL badly needed a replacement.

The Oakland Raiders defense and Latavius Murray need to bounce back this week against the Vikings. After allowing the Steelers offense to do whatever they wanted and letting them get into scoring positin late in the game the Raiders defense needs to have a much better performance against the Vikings. Murray, after being knocked out of the game, has to bounce back this week and show he can be reliable on every play and take care of the ball.

After what seems like a lifetime of waiting everyone’s favorite running back is back in black. Just when we thought they wouldn’t pull it off, the Raiders got Beast Mode. It seems like some things are just meant to be. While Carr is the unquestioned face of the franchise, Beast Mode brings so much to this Raiders team. I won’t pull punches Marshawn Lynch is a tone-setter and his bone-crushing, no-nonsense run style is going to give the Raiders offense the knock-out power it will need. In a whirlwind of an offseason where the Patriots made move after move, the Raiders needed to make some moves. Trading for Beast Mode was a hell of a move.

This years draft is interesting, because of both the quality of the current roster the depth of talent at a number of positions that Oakland needs to upgrade.

On April 12, 2017, a couple of students walked with me to the museum that displayed the Canton Hall of Fame exhibit on the campus of Texas Southern University, in Houston, Texas. The display was excellent, but I was disappointed that no mention of the veterans who have been recognized on a HOF Honor Roll was included to encourage those at the host university.

Not too long ago Oakland was deemed the place where careers go to die. Whether you were a new draft pick or a veteran player it was likely you weren't going to play your best football in Oakland. Something about the environment there was toxic and players did everything they could to avoid it. Coaches advised players to avoid Oakland. Players advised players to avoid Oakland. Being a Raiders became just a place to go get your final paycheck.

I had a big smile on my face when I realized that the husband of one of my students is a Raider fan. He sent me a message that he has been reading my articles for years. As a math professor and sports writer I often compare the data of teams and of players. I have written more than 1600 articles since 2008. It is so good to encounter Raider fans who share the love I have for the Oakland Raiders.

More than 53 years ago a young football player who became a legendary wide receiver and great deep threat said, "Jackie, you do mathematics on the blackboard. I do mathematics and physics on the football field."
