  Raiders | Latavius Murray will be free agent    Sun Jan 15, 01:39 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: A sixth-round pick in 2013, Murray has had quite a bit of success with the Raiders. He rushed for a career-high 12 touchdowns in 2016, and he could be brought back for more in 2017. Murray has already expressed a desire to return to the Raiders.

Former Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave's contract has expired.

  Raiders | Matt McGloin wants chance to start    Mon Jan 9, 07:43 PM

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent QB Matt McGloin said he will look to sign with a team that will allow him to compete for the starting quarterback job.

Footballguys view: Don't be surprised to see the Houston Texans show interest. When Bill O'Brien was the head coach of Penn State, McGloin was his quarterback and looked good. In a quarterback-desperate league, there's a chance for McGloin to compete somewhere.

  Raiders | Oakland signs four to future deals    Mon Jan 9, 06:18 PM

The Oakland Raiders signed WR K.J. Brent, TE Cooper Helfet, WR Jaydon Mickens and TE Ryan O'Malley to Reserve/Future contracts Monday, Jan. 9. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A rare JUCO transfer to Duke, Cooper Helfet was picked up by the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2012. Helfet has stayed with the Seahawks for a few years, but only appeared in 24 games during that time. On his career, Helfet has 25 catches, 315 receiving yards and two touchdowns. He cracked a bone in his foot and was done in Seattle earlier this year. In super deep dynasty leagues we'll be monitoring him.

  Raiders | Latavius Murray open to extension    Mon Jan 9, 01:43 AM

The agent for Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray has had talks with the team about a contract extension. Murray has said he'd like to stay with the team that drafted him.

Footballguys view: A sixth-round pick for the Raiders in 2013, Murray can be a bruising featured back. He'll command some interest if he makes it to the open market. This year the Raiders added two talented rookie RBs in Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington but both are more of the change-of-pace type.

Oakland Raiders QB Connor Cook completed 18 of his 45 passes for 161 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions in a 27-14 loss to the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 7.

Footballguys view: Should anyone be surprised by this? Cook was a fourth-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, and he came with plenty of question marks on and off the field. Making his first start in the playoffs was not going to end well....and it didn't.

  Raiders | Michael Crabtree also limited    Thu Jan 5, 06:46 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 5.

Footballguys view: Crabtree and Amari Cooper have their work cut out for them, as they will have to work hard to deal with Connor Cook's accuracy issues. Crabtree had a solid year, but the third-string quarterback (who is a rookie) is going to cap his production this week and we expect the Raiders to win on the ground, if at all.

  Raiders | Limited practice for Amari Cooper    Thu Jan 5, 06:40 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 5.

Footballguys view: Cooper will play, although his impact will be limited by Connor Cook. Cooper and Michael Crabtree will have to work extra hard to help Cook cover for some accuracy problems, but if the Raiders are going to win the game, we expect it to be on the back of the ground game, not Cook's arm.

  Raiders | Matt McGloin may be backup    Thu Jan 5, 12:27 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt McGloin (shoulder) may be able to serve as the backup quarterback in the Wild Card playoff game if he continues to practice this week.

Footballguys view: The Raiders are going to have to get this done on the ground. Neither McGloin or starter Connor Cook have the experience or ability to win this game with their arm and the Texans pass defense is fierce. Unfortunately, they are pretty good on run defense as well. On the plus side, the Raiders face Brock Osweiler. So there is hope.

Oakland Raiders QB Connor Cook is being groomed to start the wild-card playoff game against the Houston Texans with QB Matt McGloin (shoulder) expected to be out, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Good luck with that. Cook came in against the Broncos in Week 17, had one good throw and spent the rest of the time looking like a rookie. Against the Texans, it would be shocking to see Cook play at a high level.
