The Only Nation Podcast covers a ton of Las Vegas Raiders news, then launches into a pre-season roundtable discussion touching on five big topics.
Current Raiders news
This week’s episode starts with a mention of the signing of new punter Corliss Waitman. Afterward, we cover several topics including the running backs’ room. Among those running backs was Theo Riddick. Originally placed on the Covid-19 reserve list, he has since retired.
Jalen Richard has been involved in a great deal of discussion regarding getting vaccinated for Covid-19 as the league encourages. As of now, he refuses to get vaccinated and we ask if that might be a determining factor in him making the final 53 man roster. After this, we cover the signing of running back’s Darius Jackson and B.J. Emmons. Additionally, running back Kenyan Drake has been activated off of the non-football injury list.
Next, we hit five discussion topics. First, we talk about the place of Damon Arnette on the roster. Then, we ask what it will take for Clelin Ferrell’s fifth-year option to be picked up to secure him after his fourth year with the team. Next, up we talk about Richie Incognito and his place on the offensive line. We also ponder how many receivers make the squad and which ones are on the final roster. Finally, we give our thoughts on Derek Carr receiving a contract extension from the Silver and Black.
Moving on, we share our thoughts on the progress of Johnathan Abram. We also consider who will make the roster from the tight-end position. T3RaiderFax then throws out the possibility of the Raiders signing Adrian Peterson to fill up the running back room.
