It's almost time for 2017 Oakland Raiders football, we've entered the transition period of the offseason, right before the team reports for Training Camp 2017. The Silver and Black are coming off a campaign that featured an MVP-candidate in quarterback Derek Carr, a return to the playoffs after 14 years, and a Defensive Player of the Year in defensive end Khalil Mack. While many faces from last year's roster are returning, there are plenty of new faces that will make an appearance at the team's camp in Napa, Calif. From running back Marshawn Lynch, to tight end Jared Cook, and wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, General Manager Reggie McKenzie has continued to bolster the offense.
We're about three weeks out from the start of Training Camp, so let's take a look at some important dates prior to its commencement.
