May 28

9:24 a.m.: The New England Patriots are now the betting favorite to land Julio Jones, who the Raiders are often connected to.


May 27

12:02 p.m.: Another cool event will be held at Allegiant Stadium.

9:34 a.m.: The Julio Jones market may be coming to a conclusion. Don’t do it for a first rounder, Raiders.


May 26

3:11 p.m.: Here is some salary cap news and vaccination updates from the NFL:

8:14 a.m.: The Raiders were huge on the offensive line in 2020. After major changes, they have tried to get more athletic and faster. Let’s see if it works.


May 25

5:29 p.m.: This is unfortunate. The Raiders now have a roster opening.

8:29 a.m.: The Raiders have been trying to find veteran depth on the offensive line. After this miss, they brought back Patrick Omameh.


May 24

9:55 a.m.: The Falcons want a lot for Julio Jones. I, for one, don’t think the Raiders should be in that market.


May 21

10:16 a.m.: Maybe things are actually going well for the NFLPA this offseason.


May 20

9;12 a.m.: This is a must read. New Raiders’ defensive tackle Solomon Thomas has written an open letter to his sister Ella, who committed suicide in 2018. So beautiful, yet so heartbreaking.


May 19

9:33 a.m.: Below is the Raiders’ salary-cap space. They have four draft picks and need some emergency money for the season. So, the cap is tight. But the Raiders have done a lot of work this offseason.


May 18

10:38 a.m.: Matt Ryan has no idea what he would do if the Atlanta Falcons were to trade receiver Julio Jones. The Raiders are one of the teams most connected to Jones.


May 17

10:15 a.m.: Players around the NFL are starting to show up for OTAs in droves.


May 14

12:38 p.m.: Good news for vaccinated players and coaches.

9:31 a.m.: Not bad for a fourth-round pick.


May 13

9:32 a.m.: ESPN is reporting the Atlanta Falcons could still trade receiver Julio Jones. The Raiders have been rumored as being one of the most interested teams. I think it’s a waste of time, but that’s OK.


May 12

8:45 a.m.: The Raiders are fairly big underdogs Week 1 against the visiting Baltimore Ravens.


May 11

1:56 p.m.: The Raiders’ seven draft picks have their new numbers.

8:31 a.m.: Arden Key is out, so it looks like Clelin Ferrell is taking over No. 99 in the Silver and Black.


May 10

10:02 a.m.: Get your Nevada Raiders’ license plates and help some great causes.


May 7

12:52 p.m.: The Raiders will be allowed to hold training camp in Napa this summer if they choose to.

11:12 a.m.: This weekend is all about the undrafted and try-out players in Las Vegas. The Raiders’ draft class will be in next week.

8:28 a.m.: Well, this is interesting.

May 5

9:23 a.m.: The Raiders are reportedly still in on former Chargers’ pass rusher Melvin Ingram.


May 4

5:14 p.m.: The Raiders are releasing safety Jeff Heath after one year. The move saves them a reported $3.2 million. That money will likely go to cornerback Casey Hayward, who signed with the Raiders on Tuesday. Heath was a solid Raider for a season. Of course, Las Vegas loaded up at safety in the draft.

9:58 a.m.: Happy May the 4th Be With You Day. This is great.


May 3

8:54 a.m.: Today is a big day in the NFL.


May 1

8:05 a.m.: Notre Dame quarterback Ian Book has been connected to the Raiders during the draft. He is one of the best available players on the board going into the fourth round. Could the Raiders trade up to get him?

UPDATE: Book goes to the New Orleans Saints in the fourth round.
