The Raiders are looking to turnaround their fortunes as part of their rebuilding process, and Vic Tafur of SFGate.com has picked out five positions that could be up for grabs this offseason. The team will have competition at tight end, left guard, running back, second receiver, and defensive tackle, according to Tafur. They have a mix of veterans and young players who will be in the mix for those spots, more than one of which will most likely be platooned during the season anyway.
Here are some other notes from around the AFC:
- Ravens‘ first-round pick C.J. Mosley has been trying to assimilate to the NFL life, writes Preston Brown of the Baltimore Sun. “The biggest adjustment is adjusting to football all day,” Mosley said. “You’re here at 6 in the morning. Back in college, I was just getting ready for class at 8 or doing a workout or something. But now, it’s all football from 6 to 6.”
- Browns‘ star receiver Josh Gordon has added to his infamy this offseason, writes Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. Gordon reportedly was pulled over by the police for speeding with four people in the car, one of which was cited for a marijuana-related offense.
- Former basketball player Demetrius Harris is looking to land a spot on the Chiefs‘ roster, writes Terez Paylor of KansasCity.com. Harris was a 6’7″ power forward for the University of Milwaukee-Wisconsin, and is trying to catch on at tight end in the NFL.
