Football is back, tonight for Raiders fans. The team kicks off the preseason in Oakland tonight against the Rams.
The two teams have been scrimmaging in Napa for two days this week. Jon Gruden has made it clear the starters saw most of their time in those scrimmages and most of them will not be suited up for the first preseason game.
There is a possibility we will see some of the Raiders rookie starters tonight, but mostly we will be seeing backups just like their preseason meeting with the Rams last year.
While it’s not as exciting to not get to see starters and therefore get a preview of the 2019 team, it allows us to get a more extended look at the depth and roster hopefuls, which is valuable.
