Raiders Blog: September News Tracker

Recapping yesterday’s news which concluded the month of August. Among the headlines were Raiders players getting healthy again and another update on the Darren Waller situation.

September 1st

Dave Ziegler’s quest to retool the offensive line’s backend has begun. After failing to trade away Alex Leatherwood, the former first-round pick was released. Now, the Raiders must move quickly to secure more linemen.

The Raiders have to contend with an AFC West stacked with upper-tier quarterbacks. Well, now they know that they have to deal with the Denver Broncos’ new signal-caller, Russell Wilson, for another five years.

In a surprise move by the Raiders, they cut Bam Olaseni’s tenure short, in fact, before it even began. He’ll no longer be on the practice squad.

Apparently, there’s a third member to Clelin Ferrel’s super group. He kindly referred to his teammate and close friend, Maxx Crosby, as “salt.” The former first round pick goes by “pepper,” whereas newcomer Chandler Jones has been dubbed “old spice.” That’s cute.

The search for more offensive linemen continues for the Raiders. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported today that veteran lineman Joe Haeg was visiting today.

Ziegler continued to make moves with regard to the practice squad; this time he got his secondary some reinforcements.

In addition to adding J.R. Reed to the practice squad, the team also added Vitaly Gurman to the offensive line. During practice, Gurman played different positions, showing how versatile he is.

September 2nd

Ziegler and the Raiders are apparently trying to add depth to their linebacker corps. Reggie Ragland is visiting with the Silver and Black today.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Vincent Bonsignore said that Joe Haeg is visiting other teams, so the Raiders don’t have anything to worry about right now.

September 3rd

The Raiders are content with their current starting offensive line says Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

September 5th

The Raiders have made some noise with regard to their defensive line; they released Tyler Lancaster and have signed Kyle Peko.

September 12th

The injuries have begun piling up for the Raiders, especially in the secondary. Anthony Averett will be out for at least a month due to a thumb injury. Trevon Moehrig also went down on Sunday. The Raiders could be in trouble if Moehrig is also going to miss significant time.

Prior to the news surrounding Averett surfacing, the Raiders moved quickly claim a veteran cornerback off of waivers according to Tom Pelissero.

September 13th

The Raiders were busy today addressing some of the issues with the roster. Team management replenished their offensive line by signing a former first-round pick, but that wasn’t all. The Raiders also signed a veteran corner given the rash of injuries after Sunday.
