Former Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio has been mostly quiet in the 16 months since he was fired, but he offered a few interesting thoughts this week in an interview with NFL Network’s Brooke Cersosimo.

Notably, Del Rio pointed out that both Jacksonville and Oakland got worse after firing him.

“Not really, no, [I wouldn’t have done anything differently in Oakland],” Del Rio said of whether he had any regrets from his time with the Raiders. “Maybe [I should have] spoken up about personnel issues that weren’t going how I wanted them to go. That’s probably the one area that’s a little frustrating. I had two stints as a head coach and the guys that I worked with were good guys, but I never felt like I got the guys I needed. That’s hard to deal with, and I think that’s why Coach Saban went back to college. He couldn’t pick his own players. I think there’s an element to that that’s a little frustrating. Beyond that, I don’t have any regrets. I think we did a good job in both [Oakland and Jacksonville]. In both places, the team got worse when I left. We were doing some good things. We brought the Raiders to a place they hadn’t been in over a decade. … I grew up a Raiders fan and to be able to bring them back to the playoffs, I’m proud of that.”

For what it’s worth, it was no secret that Del Rio and the Raiders personnel department didn’t see eye to eye toward the end of his time as head coach. Del Rio did voice his frustration at the time, but often get what he wanted.

As for the Raiders current roster, JDR doesn’t seem particularly impressed by the team’s decision to add Antonio Brown.

“I love the talent, but [Antonio Brown] has clearly shown that he’s going to be a pain in the a–,” Del Rio said of the Raiders new star receiver. “He’s a very talented guy and I would love to have him. I would work with him no problem. If [players] have talent, you tend to tolerate it a little bit unless it becomes disruptive to your team. He’s going to have to learn that to really help the team. If he continues doing the things he’s been doing, just like he upset the Steelers, he’s going to upset the next team he’s on. There are certain things — I mean, this is America and he’s free to do what he wants — but those aren’t the things that are indicative of a good teammate. The working hard and being a good player definitely helps the team, which is why he’ll continue to get chances to be special until his skills deteriorate. That’s when people will get tired of him.”

As for Derek Carr’s status with the Raiders, Del Rio doesn’t think Carr is a big fan of the team kicking the tires on first-round quarterbacks. In a separate NFL Network interview, Del Rio was asked about what he thought Carr might be thinking right now.

“Despite having Derek, there were enough rumblings last year during the season that the possibility must exist and I think they’re taking a good full look at everybody available… “[Derek] doesn’t like it,” Del Rio speculated. “I think I saw a tweet (points at his eyes) where he kind of put that out there like he’s watching them and we’re all watching. I know I loved having [Derek], he was a terrific quarterback for us, led us to 12-4 in our second year and I have a lot of respect for Derek, and I don’t think he likes [them looking at the quarterbacks].”

By the way… less three weeks now to the draft.

Raider Gridiron / Raiders to trade OG Kelechi Osemele to Jets
« on: March 10, 2019, 03:20:41 PM »
The Raiders aren’t done trading after all. After making the Antonio Brown trade late on Saturday night, Oakland has executed another trade. This time, they are the team trading away the Pro Bowl player.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Raiders have agreed to send guard Kelechi Osemele to the New York Jets once the league year starts on Wednesday.

Osemele was signed by the Raiders after the 2015 season and has since started 42 games for Oakland. The compensation has yet to be announced, but considering the team was likely to consider releasing him, don’t expect it to be too much.

The benefits for the move for the Raiders is that it will free up more than $10 million in cap space for the Raiders while costing them zero in dead money. Osemele’s play has dipped in recent seasons and with the Raiders, finishing as Pro Football Focus’ 61st-ranked guard. At the age of 29, Osemele already appears to be in decline.

The Raiders are still homeless.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Tuesday that the San Francisco 49ers are not planning to waive their territorial rights for the 2019 season so the Raiders can play at the San Francisco Giants' Oracle Park.

The Raiders were closing in on a deal to play at the baseball stadium but have run into interference, most notably from San Francisco Mayor London Breed.

"As far as I'm concerned, the Oakland Raiders should play in Oakland," Breed told KTVU (h/t Sean Wagner-McGough of CBS Sports. "In San Francisco, we have a number of challenges that we need to address with the Warriors coming to the new Chase Arena, the housing—1,400 units—that's going to break ground in that area, our transportation system, our ferry landing.

"We have a number of things for years that we've been working to prepare for, and we don't need another layer to add to what we already have in terms of an area that's really congested, filled with construction, and will host a number of concerts and games for both basketball and baseball over the coming months."

The Raiders are now expected to play either in Oakland or at the 49ers' Levi Stadium in 2019 before moving to Las Vegas permanently in 2020.
