We have a new free-agent tracker now that we are in the post-draft NFL news cyc

May 29

2:02 p.m.: The Raiders are in the midst of moving from their Alameda facility to their new home in Henderson, Nevada. It’s happening.

10:28 a.m.: Former Raiders’ wide receiver Rod Streater is now part of the Browns’ scouting department. A great transition for a former undrafted free agent. He was Derek Carr’s first trusted targeted and is a good guy.

May 28

2:40 p.m.: The Panthers signed cornerback Eli Apple. The Raiders agreed to terms with him earlier this offseason, but the deal fell apart.

1:58 p.m.: Paul Butler is in and Nick O’Leary is out at tight end.

12:30 p.m.: The virtual offseason has been extended by two weeks. It looks like the best we can hope for is one June minicamp, but that’s far from a certainty.

11:18 a.m.: Teams can now bring back three players from the injured reserve during the season. The previous limit was two. The 2019 Raiders could have benefited from this rule.

11:05 a.m.: The fourth-and-15 option rule was tabled. That’s a real bummer in my world.

May 27

8:31 a.m.: Here’s some clarification on the proposed fourth-and-15 rule, which gives teams an option besides the onside kick. These tweaks seem reasonable. The word is this rule has a real chance to be approved.

May 26

11:01 a.m.:

NFL coaches will soon be allowed back to their facilities.

May 22 (happy birthday to my sister, Noreen, a proud member of the Raider Nation).

10:20 a.m.: The NFL may allow teams to bring back three players from the injured reserve during the season. Currently, two players can be brought back. That would have come in handy for the 2019 Raiders.

May 21

10:20 a.m.: There is a proposed new rule that will allow teams to go for it on fourth and 15 from their own 25 instead of kicking an onside kick. This will almost certainly be an option teams take – if the rule is passed – in the final seconds of games. What do they have to lose? I’d say converting on fourth and 15 is easier than converting an onsides kick.

8:13 a.m.: Former NFL salary-cap man Andrew Brandt expects a lot of veterans to be cut this summer. The most likely cut candidate on the Raiders is guard Gabe Jackson, who gets $9.6 million guaranteed June 1.

May 20

1:05 p.m.: The NFL has reinstated former Raiders’ pass-rusher Aldon Smith. He hasn’t played in the NFL since November, 2015, while with the Raiders. He is now with Dallas. Wishing him the best in the rest of his career and in the rest of his life.

May 19

1:49 p.m.: Nick Nelson is on the Raider’s reserve list after clearing waivers. But it’s highly unlikely he will stick with the team. He was waived/injured Monday.

11:25 a.m.: NFL teams can no longer block assistant coaches from interviewing for coordinator positions. Perhaps this will affect Jon Gruden’s staff next January.

May 18

1:48 p.m.: The Raiders cut 2018 fourtj-round draft pick Nick Nelson.

12:50 p.m.: The Raiders have officially inked cornerback Prince Amukamara.

10: 30 a.m.: No NFL coaches and players will be back into their facilities until every team can re-open in accordance to local rules.

May 15

4:18 p.m.: NFL teams can start re-opening their facilities depending on local restrictions. Coaches and players aren’t allowed back yet. The Raiders will be moving into their Henderson, Nevada facility in the summer and have their Alameda facility for use until then.

May 14

1:13 p.m.: A little insight on new cornerback Prince Amukamara. This info comes as no surprise.

9:14 a.m.: The contract numbers for new Raiders’ running back Devontae Booker are out. By the looks of the deal, it is far from a lock that he will make the team.

8:13 a.m.: In the latest installment of ‘let’s connect a quarterback to the Raiders,’ ProFootballTalk is listing the Raiders as a potential trade partner for Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson next year. I’m not saying anything is impossible, but the quarterback connections to Jon Gruden will never end.

May 13

11:02 a.m.: The NFL has informed the Raiders and all NFL teams that the virtual offseason program will extend until the end of May. The chances for a June minicamp continue to shrink.

May 12

7:30 p.m.: Adam Caplan says if the Prince Amukamara deal falls through (remember, Eli Apple), the Raiders could turn to Dre Kirkpatrick at cornerback. He’s been long in play. He played for Raiders’ defensive coordinator Paul Guenther in Cincinnati.

3:31 p.m.: The NFL Network is reporting the Raiders are going to sign veteran cornerback Prince Amukamara. He very likely play in the rotation.

9:30 a.m.: The Jets reportedly believe they are going to sign cornerback Logan Ryan. He has been connected to the Raiders this spring.

May 11

1:30 p.m.: The Raiders made the signing of running back Devontae Booker official.

12:30 p.m.: The Raiders’ rookies have joined the team’s virtual offseason program.

9:38 a.m.: The Raiders cut linebacker Derrick Moncrief. He was signed in January.

9:02 a.m.: Free-agent cornerback Logan Ryan is hearing from teams, but the process is going slow. He’d be a great for the Raiders, but they don’t have much cap space.

May 8

2:40 p.m.: A good guard is on the open market. But the Raiders have too many guards as it us.

10:15 a.m.: Former Raiders’ backup quarterback Mike Glennon signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Raiders had no interest in bringing him back after signing Marcus Mariota to be Derek Carr’s backup.

May 7

2:01 p.m.: The Raiders officially announced the signing of three more undrafted free agents.

May 6

7:25 p.m.: The Raiders are reportedly close to signing former Denver running back Devontae Booker. He would be a backup if he makes the team.

2:02 p.m.: The Raiders announced some minor moves.

12:15 p.m.: Frank Gore had an offer to play for the Raiders, but the future Hall of Famer signed with the Jets.

10:30 a.m.: Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is being patient on the open market. He’s still looking for good money. The Raiders don’t have much left.

May 5

3:40 p.m.: Louis Riddick has big hopes for a Raiders rookie.

2:40 p.m.: The Raiders announced the additions of four undrafted free agents. There are more to come.

2:20 p.m.: The Raiders released several players.

1:20 p.m.: The Raiders signed veteran backup offensive lineman Sam Young. He will try to make the roster as a reserve.

1:01 p.m.: Cornerback Logan Ryan has bid farewell to Tennessee. That likely means he is about to sign elsewhere. The Raiders have had interest, but they don’t have the money Ryan has wanted. Perhaps something can be worked out.
