July 22

11:03 a.m.: If you’re going to an NFL game this season, you will be wearing a face covering. That may not matter in Las Vegas. Raiders’ owner Mark Davis said recently that he is not confident fans will be present at Allegiant Stadium in 2020.

9:36 a.m.: Here is some information on how the Raiders may get to the 80-man roster in training camp.


July 20

11:43 a.m.: Raiders’ owner Mark Davis will participate in a meeting Friday to discuss the start of training camp.

10:23 am.: Other teams are talking to pass-rusher Yannick Ngakoue about a new deal, but the Jaguars are still waiting to trade him. The Raiders have been connected to him and it seems current cap room isn’t a big issue. It’s something to monitor.


July 14

10:52 a.m.: Could the Raiders make a run at Jaguars’ pass-rusher Yannick Ngakoue in the next 24 hours?

9:12 am.: Next year is going to be a great time to pick up a running back in the draft or in free agency. But the Raiders should be set.

10:46 a.m.: The Ravens may have just given other NFL teams a model to follow this season. They told fans that their capacity will be 14,000 this season if fans are allowed to games. That’s not a whole lot.
