Wrapping Up Week 1 of OTAs

Posted May 30, 2014

The Oakland Raiders concluded their first week of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) on Friday afternoon at their Alameda facility.

The Oakland Raiders concluded their first week of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) on Friday afternoon at their Alameda facility.

The OTAs provided the rookies their first chance to put on helmets and take the practice field with the whole team, and Head Coach Dennis Allen was pleased with the effort his team put forth.

“I thought the first day out was a good practice for the first day,” said Allen after the first practice Tuesday. “Obviously, there are some things we have to get cleaned up and things that we have to get corrected. That’s why we practice.”

Newly acquired QB Matt Schaub was able to work with his receivers against an active defense for the first time. Coach Allen has been impressed with his new quarterback’s leadership ability.

“You hear him all the time. He is coaching up some of the younger guys and trying to get everybody on the same page,” he said. “That’s what you look for, really in all your veteran players. We’re here for one reason and one reason only and that’s to win games.”

The Raiders closed out the first week by signing their two 4th round draft selections DT Justin Ellis and CB Keith McGill. PRESS RELEASE

The second week of OTAs begins next week.
