Official Roster Cuts

Colt Brennan - As expected. He was just a camp arm.

Jay Richardson - A bit surprising, but with injury he wasn't spectacular.

Shaun Bodiford - Looks better in the final preseason game, but group was too big and he didn't make enough plays.

Luke Lawton - Loud mouth, suspended. Could have kept him for free for two weeks, but not worth the hassle.

Todd Watkins - Raiders got younger. I liked Watkins, but I'm guessing the Raiders could probably bring him back if any of the receivers don't work out.

John Owens - Only two tight ends and Myers gets the nod despite recent struggles.

Manase Tonga - Practice Squad potential

Chris Morris - Surprising to me unless Satele earned starting role back.

Alex Parsons - Practice squad potential.

Brandon Rodd - Not good enough.

Greyson Gunheim - On this list every year it seems like.

Alex Daniels - Practice squad potential.

Kellen Heard - Practice squad potential.

William Joseph - Raiders finally found some better interior players.

Chris Cooper - Was sleeper many people had making roster. He could find a home elsewhere potentially or on practice squad.

David Nixon - Practice squad potential.

Slade Norris - Practice squad potential.

Joe Porter - Couldn't make the team despite thin group.

Joey Thomas - Couldn't make the team despite thin group.

Jerome Boyd - Team couldn't keep six, practice squad potential.

Swayze Waters - Did enough that the Raiders may call if a kicker goes down due to injury.

Raiders need to make one more cut to get under the 53 man maximum.

Oakland Raiders Swing for the Fences in 2016 NFL Draft

[embed align="center"]http://gty.im/153039819[/embed] These aren't your daddy's Oakland Raiders or even your younger self's Raiders. If anything, these are your newborn's Raiders or your puppy's Raiders. These are the Raiders we've never seen before. Indicative of the freshness of the franchise was their 2016 NFL Draft. No longer slave to a high draft pick and desperate needs, the theme of the draft for the Raiders was upside. It's as if general manager Reggie McKenzie got so used to hitting his draft picks out of the park that he started swinging for the fences. We'll have to wait a couple of years before we know if he struck out or if he'll continue his Ruthian ways. First, McKenzie boldly went with a safety at No. 14 overall. Kyle Joseph is coming off a torn ACL and fills a major need, but safety isn't a premium position. Only a handful of safeties have been drafted in the first 14 picks in the last 15 years and include names like Ea

Looking Forward: Raiders 2012 Free Agents

Khalif Barnes - Weakest link on the offensive line with youth behind him. Raiders will look for for other options. It's not as if there aren't a dozen Khalif's on the street each year. Darryl Blackstock - Was a Chuck Bresnahan guy, but found a home on special teams. Would have to make the team as a reserve LB and special teams guy next training camp. Wouldn't be surprised to see him back as a camp body or gone entirely. Kyle Boller - Hue didn't have enough confidence to turn to Boller. Expect the Raiders to look elsewhere for a backup to Carson Palmer. Jerome Boyd - Was nothing more than a reserve and special teams player. Some good moments and some very bad ones. Camp body again and fate will depend on the defensive coordinator. Tyvon Branch - About the only consistent producer in the secondary. Raiders will want to bring him back. Desmond Bryant - He's been great in limited action and can play inside and out. Key reserve. Michael Bush - He'll find a home a

Pryor Will Successfully Appeal Suspension

It is common belief that Terrelle Pryor was suspended five games by the NFL because of his miss steps at Ohio State. This is simply untrue. Terrelle Pryor was suspended five games for not following the rules of the supplemental draft entry process. Pryor hired Drew Rosenhaus before he was ruled ineligible for the first five games at Ohio State. Based on the rules of the supplemental draft Pryor should have been ineligible for entry. The power of the media and his agent put the league in a tough position. Instead of doing what they should have done and forced Pryor to sit for a year, the NFL allowed his entry while trying to appear tough. There are basically two arguments Pryor will be able to make to get the suspension lifted. 1) The NFL is punishing Pryor because they chose to not follow their own rules. There is no precedent or rule that allows for any such suspension. 2) The five-game suspension is the NFL is punishing Pryor for his college mistakes. This is also unprecedented. The
