2015 Oakland Raiders Offseason Update

Fantasy Fuel: AC/DC are back on tour! Or actually, they may never have stopped touring. However, the new AC/DC are going to be performing live at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum starting August 14, 2015 at 7:00pm PST. This AC/DC duo I'm referring to contains WR Amari Cooper and QB Derek Carr who are scheduled to play two preseason games and eight regular season games in the Coliseum. Earlier this week, Raiders team President Marc Badain called Oakland administrators to discuss plans on the new $900+ million stadium that may host the Oakland Raiders in years to come. As last year's rookie quarterback and younger brother to former NFL #1 overall draft selection David Carr, QB Derek Carr showed  competence as an NFL passer, but lacked a receiving corp to make anything happen on the field. After finishing the season with another dismal 3-13 season, the Oakland Raiders selected the first wide receiver in the NFL Draft with the 4th overall pick. Across from Cooper will be another similar face to the California Bay Area as WR Michael Crabtree (former #10 overall draft selection) left the 49ers and signed a one-year deal with the Raiders. In the backfield, the Raiders seem unsatisfied with RB Latavius Murray despite a 5.2 yards per carry last season. Passing down back Roy Helu was added to the roster along with RB Trent Richardson who signed a two-year deal containing only $600k in guaranteed money.
