Taiwan Jones could switch to CB for Raiders

Reggie McKenzie, the Raiders’ GM, says he’s hoping Jones can make the transition to cornerback, a spot the Raiders are weak. Oakland allowed 28.8 points per game last year, 28th in the league.

Raiders giving Pryor big opportunity in 2013

Raiders head coach Dennis Allen made it clear in December that he wanted to get QB Terrelle Pryor on the field, and that a package of plays was set up for Pryor. The former Ohio State star finally got his opportunity — in Week 17, as a starter in place of Carson Palmer, not as a gimmick, but it could have been a glimpse into the near future for the Raiders as opposed to long-term.

GM Reggie McKenzie said on Sirius XM NFL Radio this week that Pryor will have a chance to compete to start during training camp.
