Here we go, time to close out the position of WR and move onto some other topics.  Before I go, I will breakdown the remaining seven WR’s on the roster currently.  This will include Greg Little, Brice Butler, Juron Criner, Greg Jenkins, Seth Roberts, Rashaan Vaughn, and Mike Davis (In no particular order).  These seven players will be fighting for roster positions, and there may be only one or two or three left.  This will depend on a couple of factors:  Will the Oakland Raiders keep 6, 7, or 8 WR’s, and will Special Teams Coach Bobby April make a case for any of the final seven?

Competition will be the theme at WR in the 2014 Training Camp.  I’m sure injuries may play a hand in who is selected as well, although I hate to bring the subject up.  Still injuries are an inevitable part of football.  There are fan favorites here as well, and in no way do I mean to disregard any of the talents these particular players possess, but they are battling to make an NFL roster nonetheless.  With that said, let us begin

    Good read Shane.I think you hit the wr situation on the head.

  • Mike

    Good stuff as always Shane. My only hope is that the Raiders find 4 solid WR’s with a #1 out there. The other 4 being “potential” and great special teamers. GO RAIDERS! A little hard to read Allen but that’s a good thing. I could have told you all 8 WR’s if Big Al was still alive.

    “Float” like a butterfly, sting like a bee. Float, not flow.

    I feel McKenzie could pull the trigger on Andre Johnson if the price is right, which would obviously have a trickle down effect on who is kept. Im pulling for Butler & hope Criner steps up too! No way do I want Greg Butterfingers Little returning punts or kickoffs, unless he is extraordinary doing it. If he proves he has trouble catching the ball being wide open for 6, no way he could be conducive for Raiders on special teams. Go Raiders!!!

    Depending on circumstances, and how well I thought Greg Jenkins played last year, I believe that Jenkins could edge out Little for the starting Special Teams Returner Job. Just have to wait to see in camp.

    I would love to say that I meant to do that, but that would be a lie. I guess I shouln’t drink so many Crown and Water’s before I write, LOL… Sorry for the mistake.

    The #1 is Rod Streater. Close seconds are James Jones and an unknown WR who needs to step up their game. Streater has proven his worth, he has put in the time, and he will be elevating his game once again this year. I believe he’ll show the Raiders, Raider Nation, and all of the world that his time is now.

    Thank you sir!

    Sounds good to me! Hope you enjoyed Father Al’s Birthday on July 4th!! :-)
