Wrapping Up the Offseason

Posted Jun 20, 2014

The Oakland Raiders wrapped up their 2014 offseason Thursday afternoon.

The Oakland Raiders wrapped up their 2014 offseason Thursday afternoon. The nine-week program, which began in March, included three phases: strength and conditioning, field work, and Organized Team Activities with a week of Mini-Camp.

The Silver and Black added a number of veteran free agents, eight draft picks and several undrafted free agents to their roster since the offseason began. The offseason program allowed all of the new faces to come together to establish camaraderie, chemistry and teamwork. “Pretty much it’s about getting to know one another,” said DE LaMarr Woodley. “When you have relationships with guys on your defense and you personally know guys, you play different out there on the football field.”

While the team had only a month to take the playbook onto the field, the players are happy with the work they were able to accomplish. “There’s never enough time to get everything you want in, but I feel like we were sufficient and efficient in the use of our time, as a group on the field and in the meeting rooms, and away from football, getting to know guys, developing that chemistry within the team,” said Schaub. “I feel very comfortable with where we’re at heading into the summer break.”

Head Coach Dennis Allen is confident that his guys are heading into their time off with a solid base before training camp gets underway in July. “I think we had a heck of an offseason,” said Coach Allen. “I think our guys are battling, they’re competing. They’re working extremely hard. We’ve accomplished a lot in this offseason.”

The five weeks off allow the players time to refresh mentally and physically. When training camp begins, it will be a day-in and day-out grind of meetings, practices, and walk-throughs. It will be the first time the players will put on their pads and play in live-game situations.
