With training camp slated to begin later on this month, let us take an A-Z look at some of the main storylines as the Raiders head to Napa.
The Oakland Raiders head into July ready for training camp, which will be the first with Jon Gruden back at the helm as head coach. Gruden takes over for Jack Del Rio, who was fired after the team’s blowout loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17, which ended the Raiders terrible 6-10 season.
With 90 men on the roster, there is still so much to do before the team opens up their regular season campaign against the Los Angeles Rams. This offseason, the team went out and revamped the roster, as Gruden wanted to make sure the players he brought in could fit the way he likes to play football.
Quarterback Derek Carr enters year five, and is coming off one of his least-productive seasons as a pro. He will have a new offensive coordinator again this season, but at least it is a familiar face, as Greg Olson was the team’s OC during Carr’s rookie season.
In this piece, we take an in-depth look at all the stories surrounding the Raiders during training camp. To make it fun, we go A-Z, and with only a few weeks left until camp, this should get Raider Nation ready for the months ahead.
