Antonio Brown Settles Furniture Throwing Lawsuit

Raiders wide out Antonio Brown has settled the lawsuit stemming back from last Spring in which he threw furniture from a balcony.

TMZ stated that Brown came to an undisclosed agreement with Ophir Sternberg, who claimed his 22-month-old son was nearly hit with various items that were tossed out of Brown’s apartment while the child was walking around the pool below.

The man also claims that the furniture landed just feet from the child, who was disturbed by the incident.

Brown denies throwing the items while trying to pin it on someone who had access the his apartment. The police say Brown was “very agitated” and yelling when they arrived on scene last April.

Brown is still being sued by the apartment complex for reportedly destroying the apartment while he was a resident.

Could the Raiders Look to Replace Derek Carr in the Draft?

The Raiders have made repeated public statements this offseason that Derek Carr is their starting quarterback both for now and for the future but GM Mike Mayock hedged on that Thursday when he admitted the team could select a quarterback in the upcoming draft according to MJ Acosta of NFL Network.

“Derek Carr is our franchise quarterback and we believe that” Mayock said. “Beyond that, just like at any other position, we’re goinf to do our due diligence. If we found somebody we liked better or thought had bigger upside, you’ve gotta do the right thing for the organization.”

With the No. 4, 24, 27 and 35 picks in the upcoming draft, the Raiders have more than enough ammo to work with if they want to select Carr’s replacement. And let’s be honest-teams who truly believe they have a franchise quarterback in his prime (Carr is 28) are not considering drafting a QB in the first round. If the Raiders do not fully believe in Carr, they will never be in a better position draft wise to replace him than in 2019.

Why Are the Raiders Working Out Top QB Prospect Kyler Murray?

The news on Monday took the NFL by storm, as it broke that the Oakland Raiders, a team already chock full of quarterbacks, is working out top draft prospect Kyler Murray.

One would think that the Raiders, who already have declared Derek Carr as their starter at quarterback in 2019, are playing with fire and hurting their Superbowl betting odds if they mess around and try to take Murray in the draft.

Carr tweeted out an interesting pic of himself pointing to his eyes Monday night after hearing the news, basically stating that he’s well aware of what Oakland is doing.

The biggest question is – why?

A team with plenty of star power now with Antonio Brown leading the wide out core, why would the Raiders even mess around with trying to go after Murray, who could even go as high as first overall to the Arizona Cardinals.

Murray is a great prospect, but if you want to mess up this team before it even gets started – mess this thing up by drafting a quarterback and ticking off the veterans that are working hard to try and make Oakland a real contender in 2019.

This season Carr has to be the starter. He is in the midst of a five-year, $125 million extension signed in 2017, and while it is a monster contract, the Raiders have Carr locked up and can’t mess this up with picking up Murray.

What’s even worse about the Murray workout is that after they are done with him, they’ll go work out Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

With the fourth overall pick, Murray probably will be gone, but Haskins could still be on the table. Why again would the Raiders mess around with such a thought?

It’s all on Jon Gruden, who seems to love to grab quarterbacks anywhere he can (hence the team signing Mike Glennon and Landry Jones), but while that’s fine and good as they are for sure backups to Carr, if the Raiders spend a first-round pick on Murray or Haskins, then Gruden is sending a clear message that he’s already got his eyes on the future quarterback spot for the Raiders.

And with that, it is not going to include that of Carr, who it seems he is going to try to get rid of as soon as he can, which is not going to be easy to do with the contract the team gave him back in 2017.

Raiders Come to Terms with Free Agent RB Crowell, LB Marshall

The Raiders free agency purge continues, as Thursday they came to terms with running back Isaiah Crowell and linebacker Brandon Marshall.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter states that Crowell will earn up to $2.5 million on a one-year deal, while Marshall’s deal is worth up to $4.1 million.

Crowell last year with the Jets rushed for 685 yards, six scores, and he put up 4.8 yards per carry.

He set a franchise mark with 218 rushing yards in a week five win over the Broncos, which accounted for a lot of his yards on the season.

The Jets released Crowell when they signed free agent Le’Veon Bell.

The 29-year-old Marshall had spent the last six seasons with the Denver Broncos, and was on the roster when the team won Super Bowl 50.

Denver decided not to exercise their team option with two years left on his contract, allowing Marshall to become a free agent.

Last season he played in 11 games, putting up 42 tackles.

Raiders Ink QB Mike Glennon to Backup Carr and Peterman

The Raiders have signed unrestricted free agent quarterback Mike Glennon, the Associated Press reports.

The addition of Glennon on Friday gives the Raiders a second backup to Derek Carr along with Nathan Peterman.

Glennon is entering his seventh season in the NFL.

He was originally a third-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2013 and also has played with Chicago and Arizona. He has played in 27 games with 22 starts during his career.

He has completed 60.9 percent of his passes, averaging 6.5 yards per attempt with 35 TDs, 20 interceptions and an 84 passer rating.

Raiders Ink Former Bengals Linebacker Vontaze Burfict to a One-Year Deal

In what can only be described as an ‘interesting’ move based on the wide out they just made a huge move for, the Raiders announced they have signed Cincinnati Bengals bad boy linebacker Vontaze Burfict to a deal.

Burfict was the player who back in 2016 knocked out new Oakland wide out Antonio Brown during the final critical moments of a wild card playoff game in Cincinnati, giving him a concussion and costing the Bengals the game as he drew a 15-yard penalty for a hit to the head.

Tuesday Burfict said that he and Brown will be just fine with them both now wearing the silver and black.

“We’re on the same team. It’s one goal. It’s all positive, man,” Burfict told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“He’s a great player. … I’m going to approach him just like I do all my other teammates. … There’s nothing negative here. We’re on the same team. We’re trying to win a championship here.”

A report from the NFL Network says that Burfict and the Raiders have agreed to a one-year contract worth about $5 million, including incentives.

Burfict spent seven seasons with Cincinnati, highlighted by a 2013 season in which he led the NFL with 177 tackles and made the Pro Bowl, his best season in the Queen City.
