 Latest Raiders Player Notes
Apr 23 2018 - Daryl Worley
  CB Daryl Worley signed with the Oakland Raiders, the team announced Monday. The Raiders are Worley's third team in less than two months. The Philadelphia Eagles acquired Worley in a trade in early March that sent wide receiver Torrey Smith the Carolina Panthers. However, the Eagles released Worley on April 15, just hours after he was arrested and tased by police near the team facility. Worley was arrested for driving under the influence as well as on weapons and disorderly conduct charges after he was found passed out inside a vehicle at an intersection in Philadelphia. Worley, 23, started 14 games for the Panthers last year, when he had two interceptions, 10 passes defensed, one sack and 63 tackles.


Apr 23 2018 - Amari Cooper
  WR Amari Cooper had the fifth-year option on his contract exercised by the Oakland Raiders, extending his contract through the 2019 season, the team announced Monday. The announcement comes as no surprise, even though Cooper's production declined in 2017. If Cooper, 23, were to play under a fifth-year option in 2019, he would make approximately $13.9 million. He was named to the Pro Bowl in each of his first two seasons. After catching 83 passes for 1,153 yards and five touchdowns in 2016, Cooper had 48 receptions for 680 yards and seven scores last season.


Apr 22 2018 - Amari Cooper
  WR Amari Cooper likely will have the fifth-year option of his contract picked up by the Oakland Raiders, ESPN's Josina Anderson reported on Sunday. Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said the team has had conversations with Cooper's agent. While McKenzie did not divulge if the team would pick up the option for the 2019 season, Anderson reported that club is set to exercise it "imminently." That option will pay him $13.9 million for the 2019 season, per Spotrac.com.


Apr 15 2018 - Daryl Worley
  The Philadelphia Eagles announced Sunday that they released CB Daryl Worley, hours after he was arrested. Worley was tased and arrested early Sunday morning after he was found passed out inside a vehicle that was blocking a highway, according to reports. Worley was tased during the 6 a.m. arrest after he reportedly became combative toward police. A gun was also recovered at the scene at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, near the team's NovaCare Complex facility in South Philadelphia. The Eagles later confirmed Worley had been arrested. Reports then surfaced that he could be released by the team. ESPN reported that key decision makers were expected to discuss the matter. The Eagles are scheduled to begin their offseason workout program on Monday.


Apr 15 2018 - Daryl Worley

Apr 9 2018 - Giorgio Tavecchio
  K Giorgio Tavecchio was one of five exclusive right free agents re-signed by the Raiders, the team announced Monday. Tavecchio served as the Raiders' place-kicker last season because Sebastian Janikowski spent all of the 2017 season on injured reserve with a back problem. In February, the Raiders announced the 39-year-old Janikowski would not be retained by the team, leaving the job to Tavecchio. Tavecchio made 16 of 21 field-goal attempts last season, and he hit on 3 of 4 attempts from 50 yards or longer.


Apr 9 2018 - Khalil Mack
  DE Khalil Mack was absent from the start of the Oakland Raiders' offseason conditioning program on Monday. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, citing team sources, reported that Mack was not in the building to kick off the conditioning program. While the workouts are completely voluntary, Mack's absence may serve as a means to deliver a message ahead of the final season of his rookie contract. The three-time Pro Bowl selection is set to make $13.846 million on the fifth-year option. Mack, who is the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, likely is seeking a deal that makes him the highest-paid defensive end in the NFL.


Apr 6 2018 - Senquez Golson
  CB Senquez Golson signed with the Oakland Raiders, the club announced Friday. The 24-year-old Golson, who spent time on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad last season, was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers out of Mississippi in the second round (56th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft. Golson spent his first two seasons with the Steelers on the Reserve/Injured List because of shoulder and foot injuries. He was a first-team All-American selection as a senior at Ole Miss.


Apr 2 2018 - Dwayne Harris
  WR/KR/PR Dwayne Harris signed with Oakland on Monday night. The 5-foot-11, 206-pounder appeared in five games for the New York Giants last season, returning nine kickoffs for 188 yards before being placed on the Reserve/Injured List with a foot injury. With the Cowboys in 2013, Harris finished second in the NFL with a 30.6 kickoff return average after recording 28 returns for 857 yards. The 30-year-old Harris would have had a $4.05 million salary cap hit in 2018 with the Giants, a leading factor, along with his injury, in them, releasing him. Now, Harris reunites with special teams coach Rich Bisaccia, who coached him for two seasons in Dallas.


Mar 29 2018 - Leon Hall
  CB Leon Hall signed with the Oakland Raiders, the team announced Thursday. Terms of the contract were not disclosed for Hall, who will be entering his 12th NFL season. The 33-year-old Hall played his first nine seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals before joining the New York Giants in 2016 and the San Francisco 49ers last season. The 49ers signed Hall in October 2017 and he appeared in the final nine games with the club, making one start and recording 16 tackles and a forced fumble.


Mar 26 2018 - Jordy Nelson
  WR Jordy Nelson confirmed during a radio interview on Monday that he considered taking a significant pay cut to remain with the Green Bay Packers. During an appearance on the "Wilde & Tausch Show" on ESPN Milwaukee radio, he considered the reduction in salary until he met with Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst. "I think the number was part of it, but also the conversation I had in the meeting," Nelson said. "I met with Brian and had a discussion because I had to get a feel for not just the pay cut but what their plans were going forward. After that meeting, there wasn't, I don't think, much desire there. I think with the combination of both, we decided what was best for myself and my family as they decided what was best for them and the Packers." Nelson was cut by the Packers on March 13 and two days later he signed a two-year, $14.2 million deal to join the Oakland Raiders.


Mar 24 2018 - Reggie Nelson
  S Reggie Nelson agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Saturday.

Mar 22 2018 - EJ Manuel
  QB EJ Manuel was re-signed by the Oakland Raiders, the club announced. Manuel served as the backup to quarterback Derek Carr last season and appeared in two games with one start.


Mar 22 2018 - Dwayne Harris
  WR Dwayne Harris was released by the New York Giants, the team announced Thursday. Harris, who also returns punts and kickoffs, did not have a reception last season with New York, appearing in five games before suffering a fractured foot. The move to terminate the 30-year-old Harris' contract will save the Giants $2.45 million in salary cap space.


Mar 22 2018 - Breno Giacomini
  OT Breno Giacomini was signed by the Oakland Raiders, the club announced Thursday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed for Giacomini, who started all 16 games at right tackle last season for the Houston Texans.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported that Lynch restructured his contract on Saturday and lowered his base value in 2018 to $5.5 million.

Lynch's future with Oakland was somewhat in doubt after the Raiders signed running back Doug Martin last week. But by giving the 32-year-old Lynch his roster bonus, it appears the team is committed to using both players. The Las Vegas Review-Journal confirmed the Raiders had decided to build around Lynch in 2018.

The story adds that one or both players could return if they agree to renegotiate their contracts for a lower salary.


Feb 16 2018 - Amari Cooper
  WR Amari Cooper's 2017 season to forget was a result of injuries, according to his quarterback. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr told Sirius XM Mad Dog Radio on Friday that Cooper's dramatic decline in production was due to playing on "one foot." Cooper did have a career-high seven touchdown catches but he finished the 2017 campaign with only 48 receptions for 680 yards after surpassing 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons. "He would never say it to you -- no one would ever say it to you -- but I'll say it to you to have his back," Carr said on the radio show. "That man was out there playing as hard as he could and giving everything he could and, honestly, a lot of guys probably wouldn't have played with what he had."


Feb 15 2018 - Marshawn Lynch
  RB Marshawn Lynch is a target of Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden to return next season. "I have talked to Marshawn briefly. We'll see. We'll keep everybody posted," Gruden told Bay Area News Group. "Right now, he's our leading ball carrier. He's our back, and we're counting on him. Hopefully we get an opportunity to work together. That's a man that has a lot of respect in this league as a player and I certainly have respect for him also." Lynch, 31, came out of retirement to play for the Raiders this past season, rushing for 891 yards in 2017.

Walker, the Pro Bowl Offensive Most Valuable Player, caught another touchdown pass earlier.


Jan 23 2018 - Derek Carr
  QB Derek Carr spent much of the 2017 season downplaying speculation that a Week 4 back injury was hindering his performance. However, Carr was not revealing the entire truth, he acknowledged during a weekly Raiders Inside podcast, per NBC Sports Bay Area. "When you break three bones in your back, it doesn't feel good," said Carr, who missed only one start after suffering a transverse process fracture in his back in Week 4 against the Denver Broncos. "Injuries will never be something I talk about, especially during the season, but since it's after the season, the (back issue) was one of those things that was there."


Jan 23 2018 - Derek Carr
  QB Derek Carr will replace Tom Brady for Sunday's Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fla. Since the game is taking place in the week between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl, players who advance get replaced. Carr became the third Raider quarterback to make three Pro Bowls, joining Hall of Famer Ken Stabler and Rich Gannon. He also became the fifth player from Oakland to be named to the Pro Bowl team. Carr threw 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions as the Raiders finished 6-10 after reaching the playoffs in the 2016 season. He finished with 3,496 passing yards, a 62.7 completion percentage and a passer rating of 86.4.


Jan 3 2018 - Nicholas Morrow
  LB Nicholas Morrow, an undrafted rookie out of Division III Greenville, surprised everyone by making the roster.

Jan 3 2018 - Derek Carr
  Derek Carr, a year after throwing 28 touchdown passes and six interceptions, dropped to 22-13. He completed 62.7 percent of his passes for 3,496 yards and took a huge step back in terms of being productive in the fourth quarter and being a consistent passer.


Jan 3 2018 - Marshawn Lynch
  RB Marshawn Lynch gained 891 yards on 207 carries, having a strong second half of the season and scoring seven touchdowns. Lynch remains one of the NFL's supreme tackle-breakers. He was about all they had offensively in the last third of the season.


Jan 1 2018 - Vadal Alexander
  OL Vadal Alexander did not play Sunday because of a concussion.


Jan 1 2018 - Marshawn Lynch
  RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 101 yards on 19 carries and a touchdown Sunday. He broke 10,000 yards for his career and earned a $600,000 bonus for surpassing 800 yards for the season. He finished with 891 yards.

  QB Derek Carr scuffled as he hit on just 19 of 28 passes for 243 yards with a touchdown and interception in a loss to the Chargers on Sunday. "We were fighting and competing, it was there," Carr said. "But it was the details of the assignments that we were missing."


Jan 1 2018 - Marshawn Lynch
  RB Marshawn Lynch paced all rushers with 101 yards on 19 carries as he became the 31st player to reach the 10,000-yard mark.
