 will Mack be there Donald Penn Jersey  when Gruden era begins? Latest Raiders newsRaiders’ Las Vegas stadium to include jail and courthouse | Silver and Black PrideWhile all stadiums have facilities to deal with fans who get out of hand, Philadelphia’s Veterans Stadium was notorious for having a jail within its bowels. It was necessary due to Eagles fans being the worst human beings on the face of the planet. The Raiders will be on the cutting edge of law enforcement here. We can only hope wearing a Chiefs jersey is considered a Class A felony in the stadium.Here’s why Khalil Mack won’t be there when the new Gruden-Raiders era begins | CBS SportsThe most salient questions -- when might Mack report; how much would he earn in 2018 and beyond; where would he play if a trade becomes viable -- are impossible to answer with the sides at a loggerheads and not even discussing the prospect of a fair-market contract extension. But allow me to promise you this much: Barring the Raiders suddenly reversing course and engaging on a legitimate contract, there is no way this All-Pro will be with the team when the regular season begins.Raiders preseason week 2 Ballers & Busters vs Rams | Silver and Black PrideTwo preseason games, two Top Baller spots. Warren was the workhorse back in this game, seeing 85% of the snaps and every carry. He was in the game from the first play to the last with only Jalen Richard seeing some time as a target out of the backfield. I guess they wanted to see if he could have a repeat performance of his preseason opener. He did that and kicked it up a notch.In Oakland, Maurice Hurst Is Making an Impact | Sports Illustrated While Conley and Key played only sparingly and without fireworks against the Rams, Hurst stole the show, bulldozing past the Rams’ Aaron Neary for a third-quarter sack. His get-off, balance and consistent effort has Raiders coaches believing they pulled off a draft coup in choosing the 290-pounder in the fifth round—don’t be surprised to see him running with the first team for at least a portion of the remaining preseason games.Football Outsiders: “Nothing scarier” for Raiders than Jon Gruden’s old-school coaching mentality | Silver and Black PrideIt’s difficult to even hold a position on whether Jon Gruden has new and exciting plays in his “skunkworks”, because the plays Gruden has run in the first two preseason games have been the most basic and uninteresting ones imaginable. And yet, even that has been streets ahead of the junior high offense Todd Downing was running last year. We really have no idea what Gruden has in his bag of tricks for this season and the first people who will get to see them are the Rams in Week 1.AFC WestDaily Charge: Chargers add new safety, J.J. Jones earns honor | Fansided To help offset the loss, the team claimed safety Micah Hannemann off waivers from the Cleveland Browns. The undrafted free agent out of BYU had four career interceptions in college while playing both cornerback and safety.

Fuller has looked fantastic so far. He sticks to his man like glue and should be a huge asset for the Chiefs. After that is where things get worrisome.Broncos intend to release injury-plagued guard Menelik Watson | ESPN.comWith guard Menelik Watson dealing with another injury in what has been a career filled with them, the Denver Broncos have moved the sixth-year veteran to injured reserve. The team intends to release him once he is cleared medically, a source confirmed to ESPN.Report: Broncos linked in potential trade for Teddy Bridgewater | 247sports.comThe Broncos reportedly gave thought to signing Bridgewater as a free agent this offseason before inking his ex-Minnesota Vikings teammate, Keenum, to a two-year, $36 million deal. So, if the tea leaves are to be believed, there’s a natural curiosity in the 32nd overall pick from the 2014 NFL draft.Around the league Redskins sign veteran running back Adrian Peterson | NFL.comAfter putting the four-time All-Pro through a tryout on Monday, the Washington Redskins have signed Peterson, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported, via a source informed of the situation.

However, extended playing time for the starters has not been Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders’ plan this preseason. Quarterback Derek Carr has played in just two of the preseason games, didn’t play against the Los Angeles Rams, and has played in just one series in each of the games resulting in a total of 13 preseason snaps. Maybe Gruden is worried about Carr getting hurt considering the situation at tackle right now and Carr’s history that includes breaking his leg, finger and bones in his back over the past two seasons. Or it could just be that Carr is entering his fifth season as a starting quarterback and doesn’t need to waste his time in the preseason. After Friday’s game, Gruden did give a brief explanation into why Carr was pulled so early against the Green Bay Packers. “I have seen enough. There isn’t much more for me to see,” Gruden said. “The battle for us is who is behind Derek [Carr]. I wanted to get Connor [Cook] first team all offensive line for a couple series. But we have a pretty good idea who our starters are on offense. I was really pleased with Derek [Carr] on how he started the game.”Some may be skeptical of this approach , but not Carr because of the intensity that Gruden brings to practice each and every day. “Obviously, it’s different because I don’t play as much as before, but we get so many things done in practice,” Carr said. “It’s very tough, it’s game-like and the kind of things I need to see and feel. Going out there today and being able to get hit a couple times, move in the pocket and find throws. You don’t need too much of that in the preseason, but just to get a few plays in here and there is good. If we practice at speed the way that we do, I feel that you can go out there in preseason and play a couple plays and be ready for the season.”Carr also sees no reason to worry about his rapport with his receivers. “We get a lot of practice reps, especially the way Coach Gruden designs his practices, it’s all around the quarterback,” Carr said. “He’s setting it up so I can be the most prepared in his mind, it’s not my mind. I feel good about it and if the coach feels good about it, you can guarantee the players feel good about it. I feel in good rhythm, I feel in synch with those guys. I have guys that are easy to throw to , they’re easy to talk to, so it makes it a lot easier.”On a more macro-level, limiting the starters snaps has been popular around the entire league. The Packers didn’t play Aaron Rodgers and the Rams didn’t play their starters in Week 2 either against Oakland. Games that you would have previously expected to see starters.Carr thinks the new strategy is due to the loss of important starters to injurybefore the regular season. “Well I think that you’re seeing a lot of guys getting hurt,” Carr said. “You see a lot of key guys getting hurt. I turned the TV on yesterday and Tyrod Taylor, a starting quarterback, dislocates his finger, so is it necessary? All those things, it’s tough. It’s for everyone above me to decide. I planned on playing a lot but you know coach said, ‘That was good.’ You start to see the trend which is to not play people, and I think that’s going to be a trend that sticks. They’d rather have their guys week one of the regular season.”Limiting Carr’s snaps until Week 1 kicks off in Oakland against the Rams could prove to be a wise move. Everyone remembers what the team looked like without Carr two years ago in the playoffs and for a few weeks last season. It wasn’t good. So everything must be done to limit Carr’s injury risk as he is the one who will determine the franchise’s success.
