Raiders OTA practice policy


Media access to the Raiders OTA practice begins in about 30 minutes. If some of the tweeting and blogging reports seem incomplete, there’s good reason for that.

The following are the rules sent out by the Raiders for covering the OTA:

Blogging and tweeting from offseason, training camp and regular-season practices are permitted for practices that are open to the public. For all practices that are closed to the public, blogging and tweeting are permitted only within the designated viewing window, described in section three of the 2014 NFL Media Relations Policy.

Consistent with Super Bowl reporting protocol for practices, the following are general reporting policies for all media, including blogging and tweeting.

— Media may note which players are practicing as well as those who are not.

— Media may report non-strategy and non-game plan observations (e.g. “Wide receiver made a nice catch on the sideline.”)

— Not permitted is any reference to plays run or game strategy. This includes describing formations, personnel groupings (i.e. composition of offensive line) or non-conventional (i.e. “trick”) plays.

— Not permitted is the reporting of which players are practicing with individual units (goal line offense, nickel/dime defense, etc.)

— Not permitted is the reporting of practice injuries until the team has provided an official update. Access to the head coach following practice will be provided for comments and injury updates.

— Not permitted is quoting, paraphrasing or reporting comments made by coaches, players or team personnel during a practice session.
— Not permitted are any photo/video transmissions after the designated shooting period has closed.

— Not permitted are wide-view photos/videos of formations and/or personnel groupings (shots must be tightly focused on the player/ball.)
— Not permitted is any audio of quarterback cadence, keywords, audibles, etc.

— All cell phones must be turned to “silent” or “vibrate” mode for practice and all post-practice press conferences.

    TE David Ausberry, who may or may not be No. 1 on the depth chart, looked good and made a lot of catches. Out last year with shoulder injury
    Kasa = who ??

  • R8derdiehard

    Moore isn’t going anywhere

  • Can he play ILB? Trade him to the Cowboys with the Lee injury.

    When asked, Allen said there was no depth chart … But it’s not like guys were raising hands when first, second and third teams lined up
    Watson sucks

    Do they know how bad his knee is yet?

  • I am sure he will return a few punts in a preseason game.
    And I am also sure he might dislocate a hip doing so.

  • Season ending according to “sources”

    @RaidaPlaya Surprise cut – Darren McFadden. It won’t happen…but it should. Surprise make – Kory Sheets…taking McFadden’s place.

  • Heres the Tweet

    Hearing the #Cowboys are fearing the worst. Source says it does not look good. LB Sean Lee will likely be out for the year

  • Alex7

    Streater, Jones, Moore, and Holmes are all needed for 3 and 4-wideout sets and obvious injuries.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Get back to the transport before the chevrons close.

  • SlvrnBlck478

    He is a beast when on the field but gets injured way to easily.

  • I think Jones will be the #3, but very often used.
    That’s what he was in GB most often.

  • Myopinion

    No clue. But I could see a scenario of a player trade maybe a player a team might be overloaded at?

  • I think it depends on what Greg shows in camp. If he shows Little reliability then Moore stays, but if he shows some consistency in pass catching you will only have to wait a Little longer till Moore is traded.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Ah, so I must wait a Little?

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    new post

  • Alex7

    just seems teams more often are comfortable just bringing in a June cut through FA or bumping up a young guy

  • Myopinion

    Ha. First thing I thought of when I say you post that tweet earlier. But 230 lbs seems very light for ilb?

  • Alex7

    risky if you have Little replace your leading TD guy the last 2 years.

    It must b a laugh a minute to watch a game w you.
