The Oakland Raiders will kick off their 2019 NFL season in exactly 100 days, and there are plenty of questions to be answered before then.
The 2019 NFL season for the Oakland Raiders will kick off in 100 days, as they welcome the Denver Broncos into the Oakland Coliseum for a Monday Night Football matchup to finish up Week 1. The Raiders, who are coming off a four-win season, will have their new compliment of weapons on both sides of the ball on display, as they look to put the dismal 2018 campaign in the rearview mirror.
Over the past couple of weeks, the Raiders have taken part in their OTAs, as they look to build a brotherhood with a ton of new faces in the organization. First-year general manager Mike Mayock has done a nice job building up this roster on both sides of the ball, utilizing trades, free agency, and a solid 2019 draft class.
With two rounds of OTAs in the books, it is clear that this team has a different vibe to it than last year’s squad. Derek Carr is the unquestioned leader heading into his sixth season as the starter for the Raiders, and he finally has the kind of support around him to turn some heads in 2019.
The third round of OTAs will kick off on June 3, and will last up until June 6. From there, the Raiders will have their Mandatory Minicamp on June 11, last three days. This is a season where there will not be much drama as to who will show up at minicamp, so it should be three days of this team getting better as a unit.
Starting tomorrow, we will begin our countdown until Week 1 with a look at those player who wore the jersey numbers of each day, starting with No. 99. The 2019 Oakland Raiders have a lot of buzz surrounding them, and you can be sure the atmosphere inside the Oakland Coliseum will be rocking on Monday night.
