Oakland Raider Training Camp Focus: The Offensive Line

Oakland Raiders Head Coach Tom Cable has been stripped of his play calling duties. He now has enough time to be involved in the development of his offensive line. The Raiders defense is set to probably crack the top 10 this year. Jason Campbell is a legitimate quarterback brought in to replace Jamarcus Russell.
