The Raiders have officially announced they will be holding joint practices with the Dallas Cowboys. As Silver & Black Pride first reported, the dates and location of the practices are August 12 and 13 at the Cowboys' facility in Oxnard California.
Those dates fall between the Raiders preseason opener in Minnesota and their preseason home opener against the Lions. The August 12 practice will be at 4:00pm Pacific Time and the August 13 practice will be held in the morning to be determined.
This is the first time since 2009 the Raiders have held joint practices when they scrimmaged with the 49ers in Napa. It is also the first time since 2005 the Raiders have held joint practices away from Napa when they traveled to Houston to scrimmage against the Texans prior to a preseason match-up.
The Cowboys last held joint practices in 2012 against the San Diego Chargers.
