With just under a week until the Oakland Raiders report to their Napa Valley Training Complex to kick off Training Camp 2016, things have been busy for the Silver and Black.

From re-signing cornerback David Amerson, to an early look at the team's tight ends, linebackers and safeties, let's get you caught up on The Week That Was.

David Amerson Inks Extension With Raiders

Once he arrived in Oakland prior to the team's Week 3 matchup with the Cleveland Browns, Amerson was one of the best statistical cornerbacks in the NFL.

He finished the season with a franchise record 26 passes defensed, and quickly grew into the team's best cover corner, and as a result of that performance the Raiders inked the rangy defensive back to a four-year extension Tuesday afternoon.

"It's a blessing," said Amerson. "I couldn't be in a better situation. I thank the Lord that I'm here, and I have coaches, and a General Manager, and [front] office guys that want me here – that want me here and that believe in me. It just gives me that confidence to go out there and really show what I can do."

Following the news of his signing, Amerson's teammates – as well as members of the national media – took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the deal.
