Wrapping Up Week 2 of OTAs

Posted Jun 6, 2014

The Oakland Raiders concluded their second week of Organized Team Activities.

The Raiders have concluded their second week of Organized Team Activities [OTAs] at their Alameda facility.

As the team continues to advance towards training camp and eventually the regular season, veteran FS Charles Woodson is pleased with what he’s seen from the defensive side of the ball thus far. “Just being out there, I think the communication level between the guys, especially on the defensive side of the ball, has been intense,” said Woodson. “That’s the kind of thing you need when you have a lot of new guys coming in, playing in a different system, playing on a different team. It’s all about that communication. The new guys that we’ve brought in, we have guys that know how to get it done.”

In addition to OTAs providing an excellent chance for the entire roster to come together prior to training camp, they are an invaluable asset for rookies preparing for their first NFL season.

“Every day they come out here is a new experience for them,” Head Coach Dennis Allen said, when asked about his rookie class. “The thing that we try to emphasize with those guys is that we understand there are going to be mistakes that are going to be made. That’s what this time of year is for. The hope is that every time they come out here, they’re making a new mistake and not the same one.”

The Raiders return to the practice field next week for the final week of OTAs and then will begin mandatory mini-camp on June 17th.
