11:22 a.m.: Meanwhile, Waller is expected to practice Wednesday. He had been dealing with a hamstring injury.

9:03 a.m.: Darren Waller’s quest for a new contract has gone up a top. He’s get Drew Rosenhaus. All Drew does is try to get new deals for his guys.

August 30

7:02 a.m.: Running back Kenyan Drake, cut by the Raiders last week, is reportedly headed to an AFC contender.

August 29

11:14 a.m.: Some movement on the Darren Waller contract talks? Perhaps his agent switch will spark something.

12:51 p.m.: ESPN is reporting that some teams around the league think the Raiders will either trade or cut 2021 first-round pick Alex Leatherwood by Tuesday. I’d imagine they could probably find a trade partner, but I wouldn’t expect much in return.
