Raiders Wrap Up OTAs Today

The Oakland Raiders are on the field this morning for their last session of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) of 2013. The team has been working through the ups and downs of the off-season program as the players learn to play together.

Earlier this week, Raiders Head Coach Dennis Allen spoke about the improvement from last week to the start of this week. “[Monday’s] practice was much better than it was last week. I thought the guys were focused. We did a better job today,” Coach Allen explained. “Still, this is part of what OTAs are for is to be able to go through these things, be able to see it live, and then we get a chance to go back into the meetings and make whatever corrections we need to make.”

The players have been using OTAs as an opportunity to get to know each other as well as learn the playbook and the coaching staff’s techniques and expectations.

“I’m feeling more confident, understanding my role, what I need to do, being in the right position at the right time and getting timing down with the new quarterback,” WR Denarius Moore said. “That’s real tough to adjust to the new teammates we have, trying to get to know them, adjusted to them, get to know them a whole lot better.”

Veteran DE Andre Carter has played for a handful of teams. He says despite having to learn new faces, the work and the goal are the same. “The experience itself is always the same – you have 32 teams with the same goal, the same mindset, the same mentality in general to go out there and be the best. It starts right now,” Carter said.

The Raiders conclude the 2013 off-season program next week with a three-day, full-team, mandatory mini-camp. The team then reports to Training Camp 2013 at their Napa Valley Training Complex July 25.
