We have a new free-agent tracker now that we are in the post-draft NFL news cyc
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.
The #Raiders have begun the arduous task of packing up their longtime Alameda facility for the move to Las Vegas, as some moving trucks have already departed.— Paul Gutierrez (@PGutierrezESPN) May 29, 2020
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.
Former #NFL WR Rod Streater added to #Browns personnel staff as scouting assistant.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) May 29, 2020
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.

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.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says he's hoping coaches can come back to facilities as soon as next week. The virtual offseason has been extended another two weeks.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 28, 2020
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.
Owners did approve a bylaw that will allow teams to designate up to three players on injured reserve for return. Limit had been two.— Kevin Seifert (@SeifertESPN) May 28, 2020
11:05 a.m.: The fourth-and-15 option rule was tabled. That’s a real bummer in my world.
Per source, the onside kick proposal did NOT pass.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 28, 2020
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.
NFL coaches received revisions to Philly's 4th-and-15 onside-kick alternative this AM with 2 major addendums, I'm told. Those are ...— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 27, 2020
• The option is for regulation only. Can't be used in OT.
• It will be an untimed down.
These clean up some expected unintended consequences.
NFL coaches will soon be allowed back to their facilities.
Sources: #NFL head coaches could return to team facilities as early as next week, with full-squad minicamps potentially on the docket for mid-to-late June.— Charles Robinson (@CharlesRobinson) May 26, 2020

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.
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.
NFL clubs today received updated playing rules change proposals.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) May 21, 2020
Most interesting: an alternative to the onside kick that would allow a team a chance to maintain possession by going for it on 4th-and-15 from their 25-yard line. Sounds like support for the idea is growing.
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.
" My sense is there will be similar bloodletting, even more than a “normal” year, in coming weeks and months," @AndrewBrandt says projecting NFL teams cutting veterans from the payroll and a potentially ugly interpretation of SPC ¶6 https://t.co/ptFHYmGTcF— Sheilla Dingus (@SheillaDingus) May 21, 2020
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.

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.
#Raiders CB Nick Nelson, who was waived/failed physical on Monday, passed through waivers unclaimed and went on reserve/PUP.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) May 19, 2020
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.
BREAKING: NFL owners have voted to approve the resolution that would prevent teams from blocking assistant coaches from interviewing for coordinator positions, per sources. This is an important step.— Jim Trotter (@JimTrotter_NFL) May 19, 2020
1:48 p.m.: The Raiders cut 2018 fourtj-round draft pick Nick Nelson.
#Raiders officially announce signing of Prince Amukamara. They waived Nick Nelson to make room. Nelson was a fourth-round pick in Gruden's first draft in 2018. Nelson played 12 games and just 312 defensive snaps in 2 seasons with Raiders— Josh Dubow (@JoshDubowAP) May 18, 2020
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.
With NFL facilities starting to reopen tomorrow, I was told over the weekend that the thinking in the league right now is that coaches will not return until all facilities are open. Right now, approximately 10 can not reopen because of local stay-at-home laws.— Judy Battista (@judybattista) May 18, 2020
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.
Commissioner Goodell sent this memo to teams today about reopening their facilities: pic.twitter.com/037uKybDNV— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 15, 2020
1:13 p.m.: A little insight on new cornerback Prince Amukamara. This info comes as no surprise.
He'll line up on the outside; they've been looking for a veteran to provide depth/competition. https://t.co/F9K1ZD2E3M— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) May 14, 2020
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.
New #Raiders RB Devontae Booker signed a 1-year deal worth $1.0475m with $50k gtd at signing.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) May 14, 2020
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.
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.
NFL informed teams today that its virtual offseason now will be extended through end of May, per source. Initially, the virtual offseason went through May 15th, now through end of May.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 13, 2020
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.
If this deal doesn't get done, former #Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick is one to watch here. https://t.co/avQZxSTwzc— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) May 13, 2020
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.

Just an FYI: @Raiders rookies are beginning first full week of virtual meetings this week. Under normal circumstances, this is a huge week in a young player's acclimation to the @NFL. Totally different dynamics this year, obviously.— Vincent Bonsignore (@VinnyBonsignore) May 11, 2020
9:38 a.m.: The Raiders cut linebacker Derrick Moncrief. He was signed in January.
The #Raiders waived linebacker Derrick Moncrief last night, a source with knowledge of the situation tells @TheAthleticNFL. They signed him to a reserve/future contract in January, but made additions at linebacker in free agency and the draft.— Tashan Reed (@tashanreed) May 11, 2020
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.
2:40 p.m.: A good guard is on the open market. But the Raiders have too many guards as it us.
Source: The #Saints have cut guard Larry Warford, who will be one of the top FAs available.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 8, 2020
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.
