Looking at five Oakland Raiders players at risk of losing their spot on the depth chart entering 2016 Training Camp.
While the Oakland Raiders prepare for their second offseason with head coach Jack Del Rio at the helm, veteran left tackle Donald Penn, a longtime Raiders fan, is one of the several leaders with the Silver and Black looking forward to perfecting his craft in training camp.
“We can’t wait to get out there and show the world what we’ve been working so hard to get done,” Penn said, via Eddie Paskal of Raiders.com. “We still have a lot of work ahead of us. We’re excited to get going in training camp so we can really start fine tuning everything and getting everything going and doing the last final weeks.”
Penn, entering his 11th year in the NFL, is expected to again protect Derek Carr’s blind side for his third consecutive year at left tackle, as Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie assured Penn that his spot was safe after signing him to a two-year, $14 million contract earlier this offseason. With that being said, Penn’s veteran’s presence along the offensive line is secured. Other veterans currently signed onto the roster are without that same guarantee.
Here are five veteran players at risk of falling down Oakland’s depth chart barring an impressive performance in training camp.
