The Raiders began the Dennis Allen era this week with an offseason conditioning program in Alameda. Steve Corkran will use Tuesday’s Raiders live chat at noon to discuss, among other things, the cultural changes the new coach is trying to implement. Join us then!

    Tollefson is also set to visit the Titans

    ***

    @DMAC

    thanks brother. I don’t think we’re gonna outbid 3 teams for his services and he wouldn’t be a starter in OAK

    he’ll end up in Green Bay, Seattle or Tennessee … if not back in NY
    ==========

    I think he signs here.

  • DMAC

    Probably old, non important news but………..

    Raiders waived WR Derrick Jones.
    Signed as an undrafted rookie last summer, Jones tore his Achilles’ just days into camp. Already 26, he’ll be lucky to ever crack a practice squad.

    Can we get a deal done w/ Branch, so we can sign Tollefson and another LB for depth.

    ***

    wonder what the asking price is for these guys ??

    Seahawks linebacker David Hawthorne.
    Redskins linebacker London Fletcher.
    Saints defensive tackle Aubrayo Franklin.
    Jaguars defensive end Matt Roth.
    Chargers defensive end Luis Castillo.
    Eagles defensive tackle Trevor Laws.
    Bears defensive tackle Amobi Okoye.
    Redskins safety O.J. Atogwe.

    Here is a place to look at the new Uniforms.

    Yes, the Raider uniform is changed a lot, including stripes on the pants. Lord, it is really awful.

  • DMAC

    The Titans remain in contact with free agent DE Dave Ball, who would like to return to Tennessee.
    The situational pass rusher is supposedly “considering other teams,” but hasn’t lined up any visits since the beginning of free agency. Unless Ball’s market unexpectedly heats up, he’ll likely be returning to Tennessee on a bargain-basement deal.

    We need pass rushers.
    Ball anyone????

    We dont have any tradable pics.. Just messing with rr.

    According to the National Football Post’s Greg Gabriel, LSU CB Morris Claiborne was diagnosed with a learning disability in high school.
    This helps explain why he registered a four on the Wonderlic Test. Per Gabriel, colleges that recruited Claiborne knew of the learning disability, which affects the player’s ability to read. “Claiborne’s test score was NOT a true indicator of his intelligence,” Gabriel writes. “He can and does learn.”

    ==================

    Just imagine the old uniforms.

    Now, imagine they’re using a new material for the collar.

    Done.

  • J Hill

    Why do we need Toffelson?

    Isn’t he more of a LDE?

    According to the little bit we’ve heard from Wheeler, it looks like our LBs will be leading the team in sacks this season.

  • YoungAmerican

    Tollefson is a rotational RDE, possibly a rush OLB. He would be replacing Trevor Scott and/or Jarvis Moss.

    Name your DE’s?

  • Marks hair

    Id buy franklin for a dollar. We need a nt to run a 3-4.. I dont care what ppl say. We dont have a space eater a dt. Bryant cant take up 2 linemen. They will run all over us if we play 3-4 with our current line..

  • YoungAmerican

    I think the new pants are water resistant – probably to accommodate Kyle Williams pissing himself next time he has to field a punt.

  • joebravo84

    Hey guy’s just ran across this page with my off season endless searching of raider news. and thought I’d say hello instead of just reading what everyone else had to say.

    Lastly the pants look like a joke!!!! and I’d love to see this helmet get used it was created by a fan but I think it screams “Watch out B!tC*es were coming for you!!!”

    You want a space eater?
    Alameda is your guy.
    Check out the film. Dude constantly takes on a double team.

  • hwnrdr

    LOL, YA…remember how big Chris Carr’s eyes would get as the ball got nearer?

  • RaiderRockstar

    right now, Des Bryant is the only depth we have on the D-Line

    73 Jamie Cumbie DT
    62 Hall Davis DE
    95 Mason Brodine DE
    97 Travis Ivey DT

    = who ???

    I’ll take Tollefson if the price is right!!

  • edward teach

    Rockstar,

    I could have just ignored your poll, but out of respect for your request I responded even though I didn’t have a preferred player. GFY.

    =====================

    That’s a shame, Joe, because if you’d have bothered to read the posts that came before yours you might have noticed that the Raiders’ uniforms aren’t changing at all.

  • RaiderRockstar

    stay classy, blackbeard

    —————————————————-
    I think Tollefson had 5 sacks last year…Wimbley numbers LOL.

    We had him in 2007 and cut him before the Giants scooped him up.

  • J Hill

    Name your DE’s?

    ————————————————————–

    Kelly, Seymour, Bryant, Houston

  • hwnrdr

    and then he won two super bowls with them…

    No No occasionally yes

    Don’t you think we need another DE for depth purposes?

  • qodrn1

    Looking at at the uni posted on Raiders.com and at the link provided by Young American, the uni looks pretty good.

    However, for some reason, there are also “new” Nike Conquest uniforms on line, which is the link that I posted. These are pretty awful in my opinion. Maybe these are another option.

    If they wear the one on Raider.com, I’m good.

  • qodrn1

    I should point out the new Seahawk uniform all over their website is the “Conquest” look.

  • J Hill

    I don’t think there is a C out there that Tommy Kelly can’t line right up over and kick his arsse week in and week out.

  • RaiderRockstar

    The New York Giants signed Tollefson from the Raiders practice squad on October 2, 2007.

    we didn’t cut him!!

  • joebravo84

    Just because I read it online doesn’t make it true young american. The jersey are changing despite what Mark Davis wants. He is not his father and will not fight the NFL. The whole NFL is moving to NIKE Jerseys that in itself is a uniform change. So in my own defense the uniforms are changing.

  • YoungAmerican

    The “Nike Combat” uniforms were/are a hoax. That was established several months ago.

  • jesusraiderjim

    The new unis look like Power Rangers meet the NFL.

  • jesusraiderjim

    At least we fans do not have to wear them. How long does Nike get the contract?
