Winners and Losers of Oakland Raiders’ Offseason so Far

The first half of the Oakland Raiders offseason program concludes with interesting player storylines—some winners and some losers.

The good news is that the team has managed to wrap up organized team activities and minicamp without any major injuries suffered during these practices. It's also clear that fierce competition will continue throughout training camp under new head coach Jack Del Rio.
