Raiders’ Derek Carr talks Antonio Brown and expectations for the offense
Three preseason games down and one more to go for the Oakland Raiders.
When the Raiders conclude the preseason schedule against the Seattle Seahawks on Aug. 29, Raiders coaches will have to make plenty of tough decisions on who to keep on the roster.
They’re loaded at wide receiver. The secondary is stacked. So many good linebackers. Quarterbacks Mike Glennon and Nathan Peterman are pushing each other to be Derek Carr’s backup.
Could Gruden keep Glennon and Peterman? He might’ve hinted at that after Thursday’s 22-21 victory over the Green Bay Packers.
