Raiders' Roy Helu: May have to fight for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Helu (hip) may have to compete for a roster spot, according to ESPN's Paul Guiterrez.

The Raiders already appear to have three roster locks at running back, with incumbent starter Latavius Murray joined by fifth-round rookie DeAndre Washington and kick returner Taiwan Jones. The team could opt to keep four RBs on the roster, but even so, Helu might have to fend off George Atkinson and rookie UDFA Jalen Richard. After playing just nine games in his first season with Oakland, the 27-year-old Helu missed the entire offseason program while recovering from hip surgery. Head coach Jack Del Rio does expect Helu to be available for training camp.

Raiders' Latavius Murray: Expected to carry the load
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

"All indications" suggest Murray will be a bell cow back for the Raiders in 2016, the team's official site reports.

Murray assumed lead-back duties for the first time in his career during 2015, but his increased workload led to a precipitous drop in his efficiency, as his YPC fell from 5.2 in 2014 to 4.0 this past year. Nonetheless, Murray was the first Raiders tailback to top 1,000 yards on the ground since 2010, management only added competition for Murray in the form of rookie scatback DeAndre Washington, and the offensive line in Oakland only became an even more formidable unit with the offseason addition of G Kelechi Osemele. To boot, the growing rapport between third-year QB Derek Carr and second-year WR Amari Cooper could force defensive attention away from the running game in general.

Raiders' David Amerson: Four-year extension with Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Amerson has agreed to a four-year, maximum $38 million extension with the Raiders, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Amerson was claimed off waivers from the Redskins only last September, so Friday's lucrative extension agreement is quite the development for the former second-round pick. To his credit, Amerson impressed with 58 tackles and four interceptions across 14 games for Oakland last season, and his 25 passes defensed ranked second league-wide. Now with his long-term future secured, the 24-year-old Amerson is expected to build on his 2015 breakthrough as the Raiders' starting cornerback opposite Sean Smith this season.
