  Raiders | Jalen Richard expected back    Thu Jan 17, 07:38 PM

  Raiders | Ryan Grigson headed to Raiders    Fri Jan 4, 10:50 AM

Former Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson has been hired by the Oakland Raiders to an undisclosed position, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Raiders fans aren't happy, but perhaps Grigson won't be in too influential of a role under new GM Mike Mayock. The Colts were often a playoff team during his tenure, but not because of his moves, like trading a first-round pick for Trent Richardson.

  Raiders | Mike Mayock hired as Raiders' GM    Mon Dec 31, 08:32 AM

NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock was hired as Oakland Raiders general manager Monday, Dec. 31, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Mayock goes from the TV booth to the front office of the Raiders...much like Jon Gruden did as their head coach. He doesn't have any experience in a front office but Mayock does a great job of breaking down the NFL draft and evaluating talent for NFL Network. This is going to be quite interesting to see how things shake out for the Raiders with five first-round draft picks over the next two seasons.

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson will return for the 2019 season, according to head coach Jon Gruden.

Footballguys view: Nelson may not be the player he used to be, but he has been effective at times for the Raiders in 2018. With a game left in the season, Nelson has 54 catches for 661 yards and three touchdowns. Nelson signed a two-year contract with the Raiders in the spring and has a $5.4 million cap hit in 2019 with $1.8 million in dead money.

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (foot) practiced in full Saturday, Dec. 22 and he was lifted from the injury report leading up to the Week 16 game Monday, Dec. 24 against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Nelson and the Raiders passing attack will be going up against a banged up Broncos secondary. We're not crazy about Nelson's potential this week but he should produce like a low-end WR3 or flex play in Week 16.
