Fallon Smith of CSN Bay Area reports that the Raiders are placing CB Tarell Brown on season-ending injured reserve. Brown has been dealing with foot injury that’s bothered him the last three weeks, but with the year almost over, it probably makes more sense for them to give Brown the time he needs to get healthy. He signed a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Raiders back...

Raiders haven't needed much from Janikowski

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) For years Sebastian Janikowski has been the saving grace whenever the Oakland Raiders' offense stalled. The veteran kicker repeatedly bailed the team out with his powerful leg, setting numerous franchise records along the way. He's about to establish another team record - though it's clearly one he'd rather do without. With two games left before the Raiders...

Fun With Oakland Raiders Linebacker Sio Moore

It is a shame that Oakland Raiders fans are going to have to wait till next season to see linebacker Sio Moore play again.

Harbaugh turned down Michigan money in 2011

Whether Jim Harbaugh is actually interested in the Michigan job or not, it would simply be bad business for him to come out and say he will not be the next head coach of the Wolverines.

Latavius Murray is the player with the most to prove on the Raiders

Every player needs to prove themselves in each game. But these last games against Buffalo and Denver will be incredibly important for one player over everyone else – running back Latavius Murray. A sixth-round pick in 2013, Murray had a breakout game against the Chiefs, rushing for 112 yards on 4 carries and 2 TDs. The most important part about that statistic is that the Raiders...
