Unnamed Raider calls the Amari Cooper trade a 'knockout punch'

  • New 2019 Mock Draft gives Raiders 3 star players

Carr, 27, has led the Raiders to a 1-5 start to the season, and the team's prospects are much bleaker than they were in 2016 when they went 12-4, earning consideration as budding Super Bowl contenders. Lance Rentzel wore it when he led the National Football League in touchdowns for the Cowboys in 1969, until he ceded it to Lance Alworth during the Hall of Famer's two-year stint in Dallas.

What has gone on with the Oakland Raiders since Jon Gruden was hired on as the team's head coach for 10 years, $100 million is absolutely insane.

"You have to wonder if we haven't been playing for draft picks all along", a player said. "Derek is always going to come in here and tell us when he needs to play better, that's something that he does on a daily basis". "I think it will help him the more he's in the system, the more he's here and is able to stay around and stay with one system".

Stephens benefits from positive attitude in WTA Finals debut
Both women are making their debuts at the season-ending event, and it was the American who opened Red Group action with a win. A demoralised Stephens had no answer and her slump continued into the deciding set where she was broken in the second game.

"The Mack trade was a real stiff jab", one player anonymously told the Athletic. The Raiders also traded star pass-rusher Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears before the season for two first-round picks.

Gruden can say all he wants about not anticipating making any more trades, or that Carr won't be traded.

The Cooper trade was made worse, according to The Athletic, when Gruden didn't tell players about it at the end of Monday's practice, despite the wideout being pulled off the field in the middle of the session.

The BJP leader said the Congress was "manufacturing" untruths about the government as it has "lost all hopes to become relevant". He described as "false" news report that appeared in a section of media suggesting that seven files were removed.

"Nobody was happy when we traded Khalil".

Coach Jon Gruden told ESPN's Chris Mortensen on Monday that he has no plans to trade Carr, however. But Coach Gruden is thinking long term.

In an article penned by The Athletic's Vic Tafur, several unnamed sources question Gruden's handling of dissemination of information to the team in the wake of the trades. It's no secret that he got a 10-year contract. Smith said that approach could be a "learning opportunity" for the team. Hopefully, these last 10 games, the young players on this team watch and learn how to play hard and be a pro in times of adversity.
