After his visit with #Vikings, assuming he doesn't sign, TE Jared Cook is expected to meet with #Raiders, I'm told. A strong landing spot
Who the fuck is even QB'ing in Minnesota?
Sign w/ the RAIDERS, just don't bring any of this 7-9 stink
You don't want that fucking loser. That clip is what Cook is all about.
He'll be RIP if he does that to Carr, so if Carr gives it the green light he'll be accepted
Cook better stick to doing this..
ILB market heating up
Brown the best " classic MLB " that was on the market this year, Hightower more of a hybrid middle/edge guy
The #Raiders are getting a visit from #Bills FA LB Zach Brown, source said. Would be an upgrade over what they had last year.

With Latavius Murray signing in Minnesota, Adrian Peterson officially will be moving on from Vikings. And now, Oakland has a RB opening....
It's gettin real.
It'd be pretty wild if Murray and AP swap places..and I'll take it.
The RAIDER coaching staff reportedly used to joke that Murray had yet to break a tackle in the league. Lol
I've seen AP break some tackles.

#Raiders hv interest in Jared Cook, but at t/ right price. They're dealing w/ confidence & are not anxious + mindful of upcoming extensions.

If #Raiders land Jared Cook, and he’s visiting tonight/tomorrow, QB Derek Carr gets an assist for his recruiting efforts. He is working it.
fight on lol
Former USC QB Todd Marinovich pleads guilty to naked trespassing
by Nick Bromberg | Dr. Saturday — 20 hours ago
Former USC and Los Angeles Raiders quarterback Todd Marinovich could avoid jail time after pleading guilty to charges he was nakedly trespassing in someone’s backyard while possessing drugs.
Marinovich, 47, was found unclothed in the backyard of someone’s house in the Los Angeles area in August. Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to five misdemeanor counts regarding charges of public nudity, drug possession and trespassing.
Per the Orange County Register, Marinovich’s sentence as part of pleading guilty is a 90-day jail sentence. But he won’t have to serve that jail time if he completes a six month term in an outpatient rehab facility and a three-year probation sentence.
The former quarterback has struggled with drug issues for quite some time. Police said Marinovich was carrying a bag with methamphetamine and had marijuana when he was arrested for trespassing. From the OC Register:
[Attorney Adam] Cole said Marinovich decided to check into an out-patient rehab facility after his arrest and is doing well. He said Marinovich is subject to regular drug tests at the facility and has been testing clean since his arrest nearly seven months ago.
“He’s positive and in good spirits, and he wants to be held accountable for what he did,” Cole said. “He’s looking forward to his future.”
Marinovich played two years at USC and completed nearly 62 percent of his passes. He threw for 5,001 yards, 29 touchdowns and 25 interceptions in 1989 and 1990 and was a first-round pick of the Raiders in the 1991 NFL draft. He played just two seasons in the NFL and made eight starts in 1991 and 1992.
His NFL career ended after the 1992 season when he was suspended for failing a third drug test during training camp in 1993. He was subsequently cut by the Raiders and never played in the NFL again.
Derek Carr will get what Derek Carr wants.

Source: The #Raiders are going to sign FA TE Jared Cook. A huge addition for QB Derek Carr and their offense.

Carr wanted more toys, recruited Patterson hard and Cook harder. #Raiders
Vic TafurVerified account@VicTafur 11m11 minutes ago
One down. Let’s see if #Raiders can lock up Zach Brown
Baby Reggie has really done it this time..recruiting Beast Mode?
And Lynch wants in?
It. Is. Officially. Lit.

Raiders strongly considering acquiring RB Marshawn Lynch, either through trade or by his release, sources tell @JosinaAnderson and me.
Ian RapoportVerified account@RapSheet 2h2 hours ago
By the way, #Raiders inquired about #BeastMode last year & a trade nearly happened. Marshawn decided to stay retired. We’ll see this year
I woke up in BEAST MOOOODE
Former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch wants to play for the Oakland Raiders, a source said to MMQB's Peter King.
Ian RapoportVerified account@RapSheet 53m53 minutes ago
2 tidbits on Marshawn Lynch: 1. Source on un-retiring says it’s “realer than it’s ever been” … 2. It’s #Raiders or bust. #BeastMode
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, it’s "Raiders or bust" for Marshawn Lynch.
Lynch isn’t willing to play for the Seahawks or anyone other than his hometown Raiders. Additionally, Lynch un-retiring is "realer than it’s ever been," which lines up with what MMQB’s Peter King reported on Monday. Expect this to get worked out before the draft so the Raiders know what they have. Right now, odds seem much better than 50-50 that Lynch will be a Raider.
oh boy, the Raiders vote could happen as early as this morning. Should be interesting.

The Raiders are moving to Las Vegas after NFL owners approve relocation in vote: http://cbsprt.co/2mJiPeX
Congrats, man. I've always loved the fit. If anyone was going to break into Las Vegas, it was going to be the Raiders.
Yeah, it's only right that it's the RAIDERS doing it..1st to do so many things throughout the NFL's history.
Thought the trailblazing died w/Al, but Mark D. has picked the ball right up..made them a really good team again as well.
Only problem being the team isn't leaving Oakland fast enough. Smh
Fuck that O.Co dump, but Davis probably thinks he's still gonna draw big numbers for the next couple years w/the team being SB contenders.
I would like to have seen them stay in Oakland, but if it wasn't LA, this was probably about the best place for them. My only hope there is that they can still regularly outdraw road fans in a place where there are going to be a lot of fans of opposing teams. I think they easily will, but that will be a concern in the back of my mind at least at first.
THIS TOO. Terrible idea to stay in a place where they know you're leaving them. The fanbase is great and all, but boy are they taking a big risk by sticking around when there is an available stadium where you're going. I think the plumbing works at Sam Boyd too, so that's a plus.
" Easily " is the right word.
Few teams travel better than the RAIDERS.
Baltimore was basically the Black Hole this year, Ravens' fans were pissed.
But yeah, I think that was a big part of them getting the OK..not much to be concerned about on that end.
Proximity to LA also a plus.
One of the few teams that can pull it off.
And watch how they buffer this news w/a Marshawn Lynch addition to help pacify Oaklanders.
A lot of RAIDER fans, even after this news, are already back on to the RAIDERS' chase for free agent MLB Zach Brown Lol
Next to move, IMO..Jags or Bills to Toronto
