    Raiders add fullback Ryan Yuracheck

He was a tight end in college, and caught 143 passes for 1,354 yards and 26 touchdowns. To make room for him on the roster, [more]

Both are entering the fifth year of their rookie contracts. Neither has gotten the long-term deal he deserves. But there’s a difference between [more]

      More than 16 years later, Raiders fan Ice Cube still bitter about 'Tuck Rule' call

      Football fans never forget. A quick history lesson, if you became an NFL fan a couple minutes ago: In an AFC divisional playoff game at the end of the 2001 season, the Raiders thought they sealed a win against the New England Patriots when Charles Woodson sacked Tom Brady and Oakland recovered a fumble. Big3 Basketball League founder and noted Raiders fan Ice Cube apparently still hasn’t forgotten the “Tuck Rule” game.

      Countdown to kickoff: 80 is Saeed Blacknall and a couple of huge Raiders playoff moments

      Nice round number — 80 days. Doesn’t seem like a long time, really. That’s how long until the Raiders kick off the 2018 season. There’s a new number 80 in Oakland. It’s a great number, but Saeed Blacknall will need to fight past a lot of other receivers if he hopes to keep it.The undrafted rookie had just 50 catches for 979 yards in four years at Penn State. He’s here though, so his lack of stats clearly isn’t a dealbreaker. The last guy to wear number 80 was another undrafted free agent who had little stats to speak of. Rod Streater managed to do pretty well for himself…

      Most Raiders fans had grown tired of Marquette King’s antics some time ago. What was once considered refreshingly ridiculous became just plain annoying. When Gruden came onboard, one of his first roster moves was to rid the team of their obnoxious punter. He found work quickly, signing on with Raiders rival Broncos.One would expect he hasn’t quite had time to find a new home in the Denver area quite yet, and with offseason practices done, he was back in Oakland. And, of course, he gets bored a lot and has to showcase himself, so he had someone video him staging a jog in front of Ra…

Oakland has been a revolving door of fullbacks since he arrived.When he got the job in January, his fullback was Jamize Olawale. Knowing Gruden’s affinity for the position, it seems like good news for the underutilized receiving threat. That didn’t turn out to be the case.Come free agency, Gruden nabbed free agent former linebacker Keith Smith to be his bruising fullback. And late in the draft, he traded Olawale (back) to Dallas,…

      Few stories regarding the Raiders last season were more strange and ridiculous than when game official Gene Steratore used a folded piece of paper to try to make a ruling on whether the Cowboys had first down yardage.It was a crucial first down call. The two teams were tied 17-17 late in the fourth quarter and the Cowboys were driving. Dallas went for it on fourth and one and the spot was very close. As close as you’ll ever see a mark, actually.Had the Cowboys not made it, they would have turned the ball over on downs. But after Steratore oddly whipped out the paper, folded it, and r…

He compiled those numbers under then-Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther, who now holds that same title with the Raiders.
