We finally have our answer to the mystery of with who the Raiders will be holding joint training camp practices. Ahead of their week one preseason match-up, the Lions will attend Raiders training camp in Napa for two days.

Both teams discussed the possibility of holding join practices a couple of weeks ago.

“We are trying to work that out,” Gruden said in early May. “I don’t have anything official yet to announce, but I have been in contact with a coach in the NFL and we’re going to try to work something out.”

“We’re talking to a couple teams,” Lions GM Bob Quinn said. “We’re working on one. We’ll see if it happens with two. We’re not quite there yet.”

The joint practices will take place August 7th and 8th with their preseason opener taking place at Oakland Alameda Country Coliseum August 10th at 7:30pm.
