Raiders OTA begins in 30 minutes

The Raiders are back at work today as they kick off the second week of their organized team activities in Alameda. Naturally, we’re expecting to see defensive back Charles Woodson in a Raiders uniform for the first time since the final game of the 2005 season.
Woodson signed with the Raiders last week, and he is slated to play his 16th NFL season as a member of the team that selected him in the first round of the 1998 NFL draft.
It’s also possible that we’ll get a look at wide receiver/kick returner Josh Cribbs on the field for the first time. He missed last week’s OTA while recovering from a sore knee.
Beyond that, everyone is expected to be here, with the exception of running back Deonte Williams, who still isn’t eligible to participate because his college class hasn’t graduated yet.
Stay tuned for Tweets and Twitpics from the field, as well as blog posts throughout the day.

    What if they open him up and find that there’s some damage that could burst his heart if his abs got hit hard enough?

    Say he prematurely retires (I’d guess with some severance pay) and walk away from the game. In this scenario, does Reggie still have DA to dangle as his lifeguard to get his third year of his contract?

    TP sucks he threw an INT in practice.
    Wilson is great. He threw 2 INTs!

    he clearly wasnt “good” enough you have to score.

    Nobody cares about maintaining a high cmp% between the 20’s if you dont put tds on the board

    elway was 55% or lower 9 of his years in the nfl, but the broncos scored tds, that is what is important

    flynn = very good back up qb

    Anybody notice the pure glee with which the Reggie-haters pounce on Hayden’s injury? They are so excited and so thrilled and so happy that he’s not well.

  • hwnrdr

    So, ok, lets fire Reggie! Who the F do you want to replace him? Yeah he took a risk, but I bet if he turns out fine and becomes a great corner, many of you will retract your statements! Goodness people…it seems like some of you are waiting for one F up to get rid of him! Geez!

    abdominal issue, unless its bleeding from where he was under the knife i dont think its a big deal.

    this happened without contact so it could be a weight room muscle injury

    “Lease is expiring. Tarps are covering the seats. And attendance will be at an all time low.

    Mark and Reggie are tanking to LA and all you guys want to discuss is who will play QB for a 2-14 team.”

    Its 2.5 miles from Ashby Ave to Chapel of Chimes by the way.

    That could EASILY be. He’s trying to pump up to get back in shape and overdoes it.

    The hospital visit is probably nothing more than being uber-cautious with pain in that area of the body after his previous injury.

    I’m hoping Hayden pulls thru and becomes our “darrelle revis” shutdown corner that reggie envisioned.

    But I won’t shy away from comments I said back when the draft was taking place that I thought it was a really risky move. Like taking an uppercut swing at a changeup pitch. If you nail it, you got a 480 ft homer, if you miss the ball in the dirt you look stupid in the box.

  • xraided

    i do not question Hayden’s ability and neither does reggie … i don’t blame him for the pick there

    it’s these obvious lingering issues he’s having. although i doubt abdominal pain isn’t related to the freak accident that happened to him.

    He was also missing long throws and was getting rattled enough to miss some short one also. He also got bounced on his head in Detroit. Not great escapability like Pryor.

    I kinda made fun of the Reggie-roos by saying how much I loved the pick because it was just what Al would do.

    But with a team in so need of starters, he should have just simply picked Warmack or Cooper at three and slept like a baby until round three.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    what is truly funny is that wilson threw picks in last ota session and it was completely ignored here and by local media.

    now he is at again, yet the hype was wilson vs flynn

    wilson has never been touted as a possible starter here by the raider staff as far as i know, unless i missed it.

    omitted from the hype is pryor. So if all 3 qbs struggle in ota what changes….nothing. just as nothing changes if one of the guys was tearing it up.

    pre season is when the depth chart will be set for opening day, and even then it can change during the season.

    lol lets hold off on the enshrinement ceremony for wilson

    he will be a back up this season

    you can take the escapability of pryor and inaccuracy, i’ll take the guy that has to learn a little more about QB pressure(comes with more experience right?)but has an overall very accurate ball.

    so what if he was missing some long throws? you’re describing some of the best QB’s in NFL history with your entire statement above.. gets slammed behind center sometimes and is a bit of a statue…

    Well no other draft pick in history has had their vena cava ripped open on the practice field. If this is related, he’s done. Mark my words. Hopefully it’s just an abdominal strain or something. But I will continue to think an Exocet the worst until I see him on the field.

  • nycraider

    Reggie brought this on himself. Most of us are more concerned about Hatden’s ability to be healthy than about his god given talent to play cb. When you spend a 1st round pick on someone who almost died playing football its natural to have raised eyebrows when he get hurt as soon as he stepped on the field again. WE ARE ALL ROOTING FOR HAYDEN, but if he isnt healthly this is on Reggie 100%
