  Raiders | Set to hire two coaches    Mon Jan 26, 02:53 AM

Bernie Parmalee and Rob Moore are set to join the Oakland Raiders coaching staff. Parmalee will coach running backs and Moore will be a wide receivers coach.

Footballguys view: Parmalee and Moore have plenty of experience from their playing days in the NFL. We'll see if the Raiders can add better WRs to the mix for Moore. Parmalee will get to coach one of the most exciting young running backs in the game in Latavius Murray.

  Raiders | Mel Tucker in hunt for Oakland DC job    Wed Jan 21, 09:01 PM

  Raiders | Latavius Murray to be featured in offense    Wed Jan 21, 12:40 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray is likely to be the team's lead back in 2015, and new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave plans tailor his system to Murray's talents. Musgrave has guided a top-10 rushing attack in four of his six seasons as an offensive coordinator. Murray had just 82 carries last year and also added 17 catches and 567 total yards of offense.

Footballguys view: We're excited about Murray's upside, provided he can stay healthy. He has a great size/speed combination and looks swift to and through the hole as a runner. Murray can be a featured back for the Raiders, and it wouldn't surprise us to see him put up strong RB2 numbers in 2015.

  Raiders | Oakland looking at Mike Smith for DC    Tue Jan 20, 11:15 PM

Former Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith is expected to interview with the Oakland Raiders for their defensive coordinator opening, a source said Tuesday, Jan. 20.

Footballguys view: Smith would be a good hire for the Raiders at that position. Things fell apart for him as head coach of the Falcons, but Smith is a solid defensive coordinator. We feel he would work well with new Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio.

  Raiders | New OC good for Latavius Murray?    Mon Jan 19, 09:40 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray could benefit from offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, who has used a run-heavy style in the past.

Footballguys view: Murray is a ascending talent with star potential. His size/speed combination makes him a dangerous weapon as a runner between the tackles. Murray is a decent receiver out of the backfield, and he can break off long runs if he gets daylight.

  Raiders | Interested in Mike Smith    Fri Jan 16, 03:03 PM

Free-agent coach Mike Smith (Falcons) is getting interest from the Oakland Raiders for their open defensive coordinator position. It is unlikely that Smith will end up in Oakland.

  Raiders | Jack Del Rio agrees to four-year deal    Wed Jan 14, 04:36 PM

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio signed a four-year contract Wednesday, Jan. 14. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

  Raiders | Hire Jack Del Rio    Wed Jan 14, 04:15 PM

The Oakland Raiders have officially hired Jack Del Rio (Broncos) as their next head coach.

Footballguys view: Del Rio's tenure with the Jaguars was better than you remember. He turned a team coming off of three straight losing seasons into a winner in year two, and a playoff team in year three, despite playing in a division with Peyton Manning among others. He also made the tough call to switch quarterbacks right before the 2007 season and it resulted in a 11-5 season. He might not get the Raiders to a Super Bowl, but there's a good chance Del Rio will get them going in the right direction.

  Raiders | John Madden assisting in interviews    Thu Jan 8, 02:46 AM

Former Oakland Raiders coach and television analyst John Madden sat in on the interview with free-agent coach Mike Shanahan (Redskins) for the head coach job, and sources indicate he will be present when the team interviews Tony Sparano.

Footballguys view: Madden is a legendary figure in the NFL, and he certainly has the respect of Raiders owner Mark Davis. He's done this before. Madden sat in on Reggie McKenzie's interview when the team hired their current GM in 2012.

  Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew hopes to return    Wed Jan 7, 12:03 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew said he hopes to return to the team next season even though he wished he would have received more work this season. Jones-Drew finished the season with 98 yards on 43 carries.

Footballguys view: Why would they bring Jones-Drew back? He's simply not the same player he used to be. The Raiders would save $2.5 million in salary cap space if they released Jones-Drew.

  Raiders | Oakland interested in Kyle Shanahan    Wed Jan 7, 12:31 AM

The Oakland Raiders are interested in possibly hiring Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan as their offensive coordinator, sources said Tuesday, Jan. 6.

Footballguys view: The Raiders are showing due diligence here by examining multiple different coaching options. Shanahan is open to a lateral move due to friction in Cleveland between coaches and the front office.

  Raiders | Mike Shanahan interviews    Mon Jan 5, 12:45 PM

Former Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan interviewed for the Oakland Raiders' head coaching position.

Footballguys view: Don't the Raiders still owe him money from the last time he was their head coach? The move for Shanahan would be an interesting one to say the least. As the Raiders head coach, Shanahan would be poised to play his former team the Denver Broncos twice a year. We think Shanahan gets back into coaching this year, but it seems like Oakland is a long shot to secure his services.

  Raiders | Latavius Murray likely will be top back    Sun Jan 4, 02:15 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray likely will be the team's featured running back next season.

Footballguys view: Good! We like what Murray showed this year in a larger role. At the end of the season, Murray flashed power and speed as the starting running back. He finishes his second season with 424 yards rushing (5.2 YPC) and 153 yards receiving.

  Raiders | Derek Carr needs to improve against blitz    Fri Jan 2, 06:16 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr will focus on improving against the blitz heading into next season. When Carr was blitzed in his rookie season, he completed 46.6% of his passes for 857 yards, six touchdowns and a passer rating of 61.2. Against a standard rush, he completed 63.5% of his passes for 2,413 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Carr wasn't as bad against the blitz as we thought the rookie would be. He struggled under duress in college at Fresno State, so these stats come as no surprise.

  Raiders | Sign several players to Futures contracts    Tue Dec 30, 07:24 PM

The Oakland Raiders signed RB Terrance Cobb, WRs Seth Roberts and Jeremy Gallon, OG Lamar Mady, OT Dan Kistler, DB Vernon Kearney, LB Justin Jackson and CB Jansen Watson to Reserve/Futures contracts Tuesday, Dec. 30.

Footballguys view: We're still interested (from a deep dynasty perspective) in Cobb and Gallon here. Cobb, the brother of former Buccaneers running back (and current 49ers scout) Reggie Cobb, was a record setting back at NAIA school the University of the Cumberlands. We like his size/speed combination and instincts for running the football. Gallon was a standout in college for Michigan. He could be a good return man in the pros, and Gallon can get open with ease on short routes.

  Raiders | Jack Del Rio may be HC option    Mon Dec 29, 04:28 AM

With Jim Harbaugh expected to take the University of Michigan head coaching job, the Oakland Raiders may look at Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio as a possible head coaching candidate.

Footballguys view: It would be interesting to see the Raiders take Del Rio off the Broncos hands after they did the same thing with their last head coach. Dennis Allen was the Broncos defensive coordinator before the Raiders lured him away a few years ago. Allen was fired after Week 4 this year, and Tony Sparano was put in place as the interim head coach. Del Rio has plenty of experience as a head coach from his days as the top guy in Jacksonville.
