The Raiders have announced their offseason schedule, which is to be held at team facilities in Alamed, Calif.
The Raiders will hold Organized Team Activities in Alameda May 27-28, May 30, June 2-3, June 5, and June 9-12. All of these OTA’s are voluntary though most players generally attend.
The Raiders mandatory mini-camp will be held in Alameda June 17-19.
High attendance will be key for a team that will be introducing so many new names and faces to a team, both on defense and offense.
The offense will need all the work it can get to get acclimated with newly acquired quarterback Matt Schaub, as well as running back Maurice Jones-Drew and wide receiver James Jones.
The offensive line is a piece of a team that has to work together and willpossibly see four new starters: Donald Penn, Kevin Boothe, Austin Howard and Menelik Watson.
On defense, the Raiders have added cornerbacks Tarell Brown and Carlos Rogers while revamping their defensive line with Lamarr Woodley, Justin Tuck and Antonio Smith.
The Raiders hope that these workouts can be a good start to getting on the same page and being more prepared when training camp begins in late July.
The team will also hold a rookie minicamp that is held after the draft. Dates for this event have not yet been announced by the team.
