Oakland Raiders Sign Cornerback Tarrell Brown to One Year Deal

Elias Trejo – Mar 14, 2014

The Oakland Raiders have announced they have signed former 49ers cornerback Tarrell Brown. Brown played in 13 games for the Niners in 2013 and started 10 of them. This is another good pick up by the Raiders this offseason. As of now Brown is looking like he'll start on the opposite side of DJ Hayden. The Raiders are starting to form their defense as they have already signed Justin Tuck and Lamarr Woodley. Look for them to continue to look for more defensive players, especially along the middle of the defensive line. According to Vic Tafur the deal is a one year deal with $3.5 million guaranteed. 


Oakland Raiders After Defensive Players on 2nd Day of Free Agency

Elias Trejo – Mar 12, 2014

According to multiple reports from Vic Tafur and Adam Schefter the Raiders are hosting several defensive players and are interested in several more. This is not a surprise as the Raiders struggled on defense in 2013 and are looking to upgrade the talent level on the roster. 

Oakland Raiders Sign Justin Tuck

Elias Trejo – Mar 13, 2014

The Oakland Raiders have announced that they have signed former Giants Defensive End Justin Tuck. Tuck is a veteran that will bring leadership to the locker room and a pass rush to a defense that hasn't had one in over two years under the Reggie McKenzie regime. Tuck is the first signing of 2014 on the defensive side of the ball and the Raiders are expected to add more help. Defensive tackle Stacy McGee is the only defensive lineman under contract that started last season for the Raiders.

Rodger Saffold Fails Physical

Elias Trejo – Mar 12, 2014

According to multiple reports, like this one from Scott Bair at CSNBayArea.com, Rodger Saffold has failed a physical and will not be signing a contract with the Oakland Raiders. This could be a blow to the Raiders offensive line in 2014, but in reality it may not hurt that much. Many "experts" and man in the Raider Nation were not happy with the contract and felt that Reggie McKenzie overpaid for an injury prone left tackle. Luckily, before contracts are signed physicals are done. Here is where it starts getting weird. Saffold was not healthy enough to be an Oakland Raider, but according to Adam Schefter he is healthy enough to sign a five year deal with the Rams. 


Darren McFadden Signs One Year Deal with Raiders

Elias Trejo – Mar 11, 2014

According to Fallon Smith Darren McFadden will be signing a one year contract with the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders, who may lose Rashad Jennings to the Giants, are making a smart move keeping McFadden and only signing him to a one year deal. While McFadden has had injury issues he can still be a weapon for the Raiders offense. 



Austin Howard Visiting Oakland Raiders

Elias Trejo – Mar 11, 2014

According to Manish Mehta the Raiders will bring in Austin Howard for a visit. Howard played the last two seasons with the New York Jets at tackle. He only gave up two sacks last year and hasn't missed a game in two years. Howard is massive as he stands at 6'7" and weighs in at 333 pounds. The Raiders are trying to beef up their offensive line in 2014. Odds are they'll bring in several offensive linemen and play the best five guys along the line. Reggie McKenzie likes versatile offensive linemen that can switch from tackle to guard. It looks as if the Raiders are trying to secure their protection for their quarterback in 2014.
