Preseason games are often ignored by the casual fan, but hardcore NFL fans can tell you just how important they are to building a roster and preparing for an NFL season. With several veterans and young players looking to prove their worth during the training camp/preseason schedule like the past two years there should be no shortage of excitement and storylines during the doldrums of July/August this year as the future of the 2014 Raiders is laid out during the summer months.
