SHOW #402: "Raider Nation looks back at NFL Combine and ahead to NFL Draft"
Segment #1: "UK Black Hole Prepares for Raiders in London in 2014"
Raider Greg shares information on game ticket availability for the Raiders game vs the Dolphins at Wembley in late September.
Segment #2: "Oakland Raiders free agent signings - so far"
We haven't seen much in the way of the Raiders locking up their own free agents to new contracts prior to the start of free agency. Taiwan Jones and Khalif Barnes are the two recent signings. Lamarr Houston and Jared Veldheer are yet to be sign new contracts. Will they enter free agency? What are the Raiders needs, and what will Reggie McKenzie do in free agency to fill those needs? We hear from Taiwan Jones in a recent interview on the Raiders flagship station 95.7 "The Game" on his recent contract signing. We also hear a clip from Jared Veldheer.
Segment #3: "Mark Davis speaks out on the Raiders stadium situation in Oakland"
Mark Davis was asked at the combine how the Raiders stadium situation is progressing. He expressed disappointment with the lack of progress, and basically said that this is the City of Oakland's last chance to keep the Raiders in Oakland. Will "Coliseum City" become a reality? Will the Raiders move? What are the possibilities?
Segment #4: "A look back at the recent NFL combine and look forward to the May NFL Draft"
We review the performance of the quarterbacks and other players at the recent NFL combine. We hear some interviews from draft experts and former players who spoke on 95.7 "The Game", including Raiders great Fred Biletnikoff, Joe Theismann, former NFL personnel man now with ESPN Louis Riddick, and Raiders beat writer Vic Tafur of the SF Chronicle. Raider Greg gives his own thoughts.
