  Raiders | Dwayne Harris back in Oakland    Mon Mar 18, 02:31 PM

Unrestricted free-agent WR Dwayne Harris (Raiders) re-signed with the Oakland Raiders on Monday, March 18. Terms of the contract were immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Harris is a return specialist and not used much as a wide receiver. In 2018 for the Raiders, Harris had only six catches for 40 yards but he had 663 kickoff return yards and 281 punt return yards plus one punt return for a touchdown. This will be his role once again for the Raiders in 2019.

Free-agent JJ Nelson (Cardinals) signed an undisclosed contract with the Oakland Raiders on Friday, March 15.

Footballguys view: Nelson is part of the revamped WR corps in Oakland but he'll be a small part if he makes the 53-man roster. He's got the speed to stretch the field and will compete for snaps behind starters Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams.

  Raiders | Jordy Nelson cut    Thu Mar 14, 05:09 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson was released Thursday, March 14, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Raiders have revamped their wide receiver corps by trading for Antonio Brown and adding Tyrell Williams in free agency. That means there wasn't any room for Nelson. He's not what he used to be, but Nelson caught 63 passes in 2018 for the Raiders. He'll have a market for his services with a team in need of reliable veteran depth.

  Raiders | Antonio Brown officially traded    Wed Mar 13, 04:33 PM

Updating previous reports, Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown has officially been traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for third- and fifth-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. The trade became official with the new league year beginning Wednesday, March 13, at 4 p.m. EDT.

Footballguys view: Brown gets what he wants, the Steelers get what they want and the Raiders get another big time weapon for the offense. Fantasy GMs know that there will be a downgrade going from Ben Roethlisberger to Derek Carr, but Brown still has WR1 potential in 2019. Now that he's happy, we'll see if the Raiders can keep Brown happy.

  Raiders | Oakland agrees with Tyrell Williams    Wed Mar 13, 02:07 PM

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, March 13, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Raiders get a speedy wide receiver to create a new three wide receiver set of Williams, Antonio Brown and Jordy Nelson. Williams stays in the AFC West and should have a larger role than he did with the Chargers over the last couple of seasons. Back in 2016, Williams had 69 catches for 1,059 yards and seven touchdowns. He finished as the no.13 fantasy receiver (standard scoring leagues) that year and is hoping for a bounce back to that level of production.

  Raiders | Antonio Brown's contract an issue    Thu Mar 7, 02:45 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is a hot trade candidate for the Oakland Raiders and head coach Jon Gruden would love to acquire him. However, the 31-year-old Brown wants a new contract with guaranteed money on his new team, which could be a hindrance for the Raiders.

Footballguys view: Brown certainly wants a lot. He wants to be traded from Pittsburgh and he wants a new deal for whatever team he lands with. The Raiders might be posturing here.

  Raiders | Derek Carr would welcome Antonio Brown    Wed Mar 6, 01:05 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr would welcome the addition of Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, in the event Oakland trades for Brown. 'I hope he's in play. It would be great to add a guy like that to your team, talent like that,' Carr told the Fresno Bee on Saturday, March 2.

Footballguys view: It sounds like the Raiders are checking in on Antonio Brown. We'll see if they can pull off a trade to acquire him. Then we'll have to see if Carr is going to stay as the quarterback of if the Raiders move on to someone like Kyler Murray.

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams is likely to be pursued by the Oakland Raiders.

  Raiders | Oakland to wait on Jared Cook decision    Wed Feb 27, 07:34 PM

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent TE Jared Cook is a player that the Raiders would like to re-sign, but the team may wait to see what he is being offered in free agency before making a final decision on Cook, according to general manager Mike Mayock.

Footballguys view: The crop of free agent tight ends isn't that great, so Cook may get quite a bit of interest. Usually when a team says they'll let a guy hit the open market it really means they're moving on.

  Raiders | Derek Carr deemed franchise QB by GM    Wed Feb 27, 01:29 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr was called the team's 'franchise quarterback' by new general manager Mike Mayock on Wednesday, Feb. 27. Mayock went on to say he is also happy with backup QB AJ McCarron. 'I think Derek Carr is a franchise quarterback,' Mayock said. 'I truly believe that. Now, do I also believe that it's a general manager and head coach's job to keep their job open to improve any position on a football team? Sure. But I think it's really difficult to try to improve over a franchise quarterback like the one we have in our building right now.'

Footballguys view: Carr is their franchise quarterback but that doesn't mean they won't look at quarterbacks in the 2019 NFL draft. Under Gruden in 2018, Carr passed for over 4,000 yards for the first time in his career but he only had 19 touchdowns to go along with 10 interceptions. We'll see if Carr can improve that touchdown total with perhaps better weapons around him this season.
