So far during organized team activities, Hudson has impressed his coaches and teammates, per CSNbayarea.com.
“Rodney’s done a terrific job. He’s been more than what we anticipated,” offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said. “He has better movement than I think we expected from our film study and from watching from the other sideline. He’s done a great job of pulling. Guards and tackles pull a bunch in our system, but the center needs to at times, and he’s able to do that.”
Hudson, a second-round pick in 2011, has instilled confidence in his teammates by how he's performed throughout practice thus far.
Watching him out here, I am like, ‘Oh, you’re worth every penny you got.’ He is a very good penny, so I am looking forward to it," left tackle Donald Penn said. "He is going to man that middle and we’re going to follow his lead.”
Smith missed last week's game against the Lions due to the wrist injury, marking the first time he's sat out all season. Although he'll be available Sunday, Smith won't see much activity as a receiver. He's yet to see more than two targets in any game this season.
Townsend, son of the Los Angeles Raiders' all-time sack leader by the same name, is an undrafted rookie out of USC. When cleared by the team, he will compete for a spot along the defensive line.
One of the top free agents remaining on the market, Nelson conveniently fills a need in the Raiders' secondary at free safety, which has been his domain throughout nine campaigns with the Jaguars and Bengals. Overall, he's picked off 30 passes, forced eight fumbles, recovered five fumbles, and recorded 6.5 sacks in 138 career games. Of those 30 interceptions, he notched a career-high eight last season, which is a telling sign for his IDP viability as a 32-year-old defensive back.
Murray assumed lead-back duties for the first time in his career during 2015, but his increased workload lead 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 Oakland offensive line only became an even more formidable unit with the offseason addition of G Kelechi Osemele. Furthermore, the trajectory of the rapport between Derek Carr and stud receiver Amari Cooper appears space-bound, forcing defensive attention away from the running game in general. Simply speaking, the stars do indeed appear to be aligning for Murray in 2016.
After a three-sack performance last week against the Broncos, Mack followed it up with another sack this week against the Packers. He's now leading the NFL with 15 sacks and he's quickly becoming one of the best pass-rushers in the NFL. Mack holds great fantasy value as an IDP and he should have a great matchup on Thursday night against a banged up Chargers line that gives up a ton of sacks.
Ward didn't produce much at Illinois, but his rawness is largely explained by inexperience, and the presumption is that he has considerable upside thanks to unusual athleticism for a player with such a big build. At 6-foot-5, 297 pounds, Ward is an enormous figure, but he showed standout quickness and explosiveness at the Combine by logging a 7.38-second three-cone drill and 111-inch broad jump at the Combine.
The offensive players on the list are running back David Fluellen, quarterback Chandler Harnish, wide receivers Ryan Lankford and Josh Lenz, center FN Lutz, tight ends Weslye Saunders and Erik Swoope and guard Josh Walker.
The defensive players let go by Indianapolis are ends Gannon Conway and Tyler Hoover, linebackers Rob Ruggiero, Kelvin Sheppard, Phillip Hunt and Andrew Jackson, safety Dewey McDonald, tackles Brandon McKinney and Nnamdi Obukwelu and cornerback Sheldon Price.
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, 25 pass defenses and four interceptions across his 14 games for Oakland. 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.
Calhoun enjoyed a prolific college career as a defensive end at Michigan State, piling up 26 sacks and 41.5 TFLs in his final three seasons. The shift to outside linebacker was to be expected, as he checked in at just 6-4, 251 pounds at the Combine, putting him on the smaller side for even a 4-3 defensive end. With the Raiders mostly expected to deploy a 3-4 scheme, their third-round draft pick (75th overall) will provide depth behind Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin, with Aldon Smith also in the mix. Calhoun thus faces a difficult path to regular snaps as a rookie, though he could be used as a hand-down rusher on obvious passing downs.
After missing practice on Wednesday, he put in a limited session on Thursday and a full session on Friday. He'll function as the team's primary kick returner, but he'll also see occasional snaps at running back.
Supernaw was mostly a reserve in 2014 and had two catches for 27 yards. Trawick is a backup safety that plays on special teams coverage units. Melvin was signed off of the Dolphins' practice squad after injuries decimated the cornerbacks. Jensen was a 2013 draft pick that ended up spending the majority of 2014 on the practice squad.
An undrafted rookie out of Purdue, Watson has spent most of the season on Oakland's practice squad. He won't necessarily be active for Sunday's game against the Vikings, as Lee Smith, Mychal Rivera and Clive Walford should all be healthy enough to play.
Smith has never been much of an IDP option, but he's mostly done strong work in coverage while averaging 14.3 starts per season over the course of his seven-year career. Listed at 6-3, 215 pounds, he'll combine with similarly-sized David Amerson to give Oakland the largest starting cornerback duo in the league.
Brown, Chekwa and Moore had all been ruled out prior to Sunday. Both Carrie and Watson entered the contest listed as questionable. Carrie is dealing with an ankle injury. Watson has foot and ankle issues. Bergstrom and McGee are healthy scratches.
Crabtree capped off a spectacular bounce-back season on Sunday with his ninth touchdown, which matched his previous career high from 2012 when he was playing for the 49ers. The 28-year old also matched his career-high in receptions with 85, a number that he also achieved back in 2012. The Raiders took a flyer on the free agent after he seemed to be on a steady decline following a season-ending knee injury in 2013, and it certainly paid off. Crabtree will continue to be one of the top-two offensive options heading into next year, as he and Amari Cooper figure to give opposing defenses fits in the secondary. He's under contract for the next three years at a minimum, so things are looking up for the Raiders.
Dubose, a seventh-round pick out of Florida, was expendable because of an Achilles injury.
The move freed up a roster spot for return specialist Trindon Holliday, who the Raiders signed on Wednesday.
The Chargers added three players to the practice squad Tuesday as well: running back D.J. Adams, tight end David Paulson and outside linebacker Colton Underwood. Adrian Phillips was released from the practice squad, while Marcus Cromartie was released from the reserved-injured list.
Smith is currently serving a one-year suspension as a repeat violator of the league's substance abuse policy, but could be subject to further discipline after a video recently circulated of an unidentified man, suspected to be him, talking about a hand-rolled cigarette shown on screen. The video is titled "Fire up session" and archived in a Periscope account Smith has used and clearly appeared on over the past two months. No stranger to off-field transgressions, Smith is eligible to apply for reinstatement in September, but the results of the league's investigation could ultimately impact his case and future availability altogether.
The third-year running back played 14 games this season, as he rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries. Olawale also added nine receptions for 84 yards in the passing game. He signed a three-year extension back in early December which speaks to how much the Raiders like his all-around talent. Olawale should compete for the primary back-up spot at running back behind Latavius Murray next season, but his fantasy value will still be up in the air.
Listed as questionable is T.J. Carrie (ankle) while wideout Vincent Brown (hamstring), cornerback Keith McGill (groin), fullback Jamize Olawale (shoulder) and defensive end Justin Tuck (knee) are probable.
The Raiders' middle linebacker was all over the field again on Sunday as he led all defensive players with 10 tackles. Smith has recorded 96 tackles, a forced fumble and an interception across 13 games this year, and he'll continue to be a very strong IDP option at the linebacker position.
While the reps he saw on that front do not signal that he's a threat to overtake top back Latavius Murray, the Raiders continue to evaluate the rookie, with an eye toward grooming him as a complementary option behind Murray. "He's really worked well for us thus far, so we're putting him in different situations, again, to get a feel for (his) strengths and how we can tailor plays, tailor situations so he can really flash for us," offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said of Washington. "He's going to be good in first, second or third down." In order to secure enough of a role in the Oakland offense to merit fantasy consideration, Washington -- a fifth-round pick in April -- will need to overtake Roy Helu Jr. and Taiwan Jones on the team's RB depth chart, but that's a very plausible outcome at this stage.
Carr had an uneven performance against the Chiefs in Week 13, completing 31 of 48 passes for 283 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions, and wasn't productive Sunday, until he threw a late fourth-quarter score to Michael Crabtree. The Raiders got the ball back in the final two minutes with a chance to win the game, but Carr was unable to lead them down the field. Although he came up a little short of Daryle Lamonica's 46-year old franchise record of 34 touchdown passes, Carr still had a very productive sophomore campaign, finishing with over 4,000 yards and 32 TDs, while tossing just 13 interceptions. With rookie Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, who recently signed a long-term deal, in the fold, it wouldn't be surprising to see Carr take another step in 2016.
After missing field goals in back-to-back weeks prior to this game, Janikowski got back on track on Sunday as he made field goals from 23, and 30 yards respectively. The veteran kicker has been a middle of the road fantasy option so far this year, but he does still possess the leg and the talent to provide big numbers on any given day. Janikowski will get a matchup with the Chargers this coming Thursday.
Williams spent the previous five years with the Cardinals, where he started 40 of the 70 games he played in. Williams totaled 116 tackles and two sacks. He recorded a single-season best 45 tackles a year ago.
Smith spent the past four seasons with the Bills and is predominantly a blocking tight end. He was originally drafted by the Patriots in the fifth round in 2011 before being placed on waivers — which is how the Bills acquired him.
Joseph and his fellow Raiders rookies reported to camp Sunday, and the first-rounder was able to test his surgically-repaired knee by running at practice. Since his ACL tear happened back in October, Joseph is now nine months removed from the injury, so his activity level should increase further as camp unfolds. A playmaking safety that could ultimately earn a three-down role, Joseph's progress should be worthwhile for IDP owners to monitor in the coming weeks.
The 6-4, 340-pound Penn was home with his wife and two children in Los Angeles, when a man jumped his security fence, smashed through the front door and began "going crazy" inside the home.
Penn claims he doesn't know the man, but he was able to physically restrain the 6-1, 220-pound intruder until police arrived.
Penn got a temporary restraining order against the man, requiring him to stay at least 100 yards away from the family. The case will be heard later this month, when the Penn's are expected to request that the order be made permanent.
Hayden will be playing in his first game of the year after starting the season on the PUP list with his ankle injury.
Moore was released by the Giants after a series of on and off the field problems. He has the ability to get to the quarterback so if he can mature quickly and keep his head on straight he could help a Dolphins defensive line that is short a pass rusher since the loss of Cameron Wake (Achilles) for the season.
Feliciano will need to beat out veteran Khalif Barnes to win the job.
"Right guard and right tackle is an open competition," Tice said, per CSN Bay Area. "We’re pretty set on the left and in the middle, and hopefully those guys can maintain their growth. We pointed out some things they can get better at, but the right side is where the competition is."
"All you want coming in is an opportunity to compete and get better," Feliciano said. "We have that there at the Raiders, and I know everyone is going to go in there and compete. That’s going to be awesome."
Helu did not practice in any of the Raiders' offseason workouts while recovering from offseason hip procedures, and he'll continue to sit out of practice as training camp begins. It's unclear how long he'll remain out for, but the more time he misses the more likely it is that he gets cut, as Oakland has several quality running backs also on the roster, including Latavius Murray, DeAndre Washington, and Taiwan Jones.
Canty has not been able to practice all week.
The Ravens are 5-point favorites.
Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.
Cooper had an inconsistent, yet successful rookie season, although a foot injury contributed to a disappointing finish (he caught just four passes for 30 yards over the final two games). With Derek Carr emerging, Michael Crabtree signed to a long-term deal and Cooper poised for a breakout in his sophomore season, the Raiders' passing attack could be one of the best in the league in 2016.
Holmes has been a bit receiver in the Raiders' passing attack the past three season, corralling 86 of 183 passes for 1,325 yards and nine touchdowns in 42 games. Despite a less-than-desirable 47% catch rate, he's brings a big-play dimension to the table for quarterback Derek Carr to utilize, as evidenced by 15.4 YPC.
"He was having a great camp for us and really playing well," Raiders coach Jack del Rio said.
Watson will be replaced by sixth-year veteran Austin Howard, who started at guard for Oakland last season.
Walford is still working his way back from a knee laceration suffered during an ATV accident earlier this offseason. The ailment prevented Walford from featuring in spring practices, but it appears he's increasing his workload on the verge of training camp. While the Raiders are still expected to ease their second-year tight end back into action, the team will be relieved by Walford's progress, as a knee injury limited him during the first handful of games last season.
Rivera led the Raiders in catches at the tight end position, even though he was out-targeted by rookie Clive Walford who got seven looks. The tight end position battle has been on a week-to-week basis since the beginning of the season, and Rivera won't hold much value moving forward.
McGloin headed into the offseason as a restricted free agent but is now scheduled to make $2.55 million with the Raiders under the terms of the tender. The former undrafted quarterback can still negotiate with other teams during free agency but the Raiders have the opportunity to match any offer he receives. If they decline to match an offer, they will receive a second-round pick in compensation. After starting six games in his rookie campaign, McGloin has cemented himself as David Carr's backup the past few seasons.
Irvin was among a stable of capable free-agent linebackers, boasting 22 sacks in 58 career games to date. In addition to his noticeable impact in that realm, he's accrued four forced fumbles, three interceptions, two defensive touchdowns, and two fumbled recoveries. Expect Irvin to team with Khalil Mack to form one of the NFL's most fearsome pass-rushing tandems.
Ball emerged in Week 5 of last season by holding Denver TE Owen Daniels without a catch on five targets. The performance earned him his first career start versus San Diego in Week 6, but shortly into the game he suffered a knee sprain and was ruled out by halftime. Ball will serve as depth for an imposing Raiders' outside linebacking corps in 2016 behind Khalil Mack, Bruce Irvin, Malcolm Smith and perhaps Aldon Smith (suspension), should he return in November.
Roberts' tender binds him to the Raiders, for whom he posted 480 yards and five touchdowns on 32 catches last season. After that promising rookie campaign, the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Roberts projects as the Raiders' No. 3 wideout behind Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree this season.
