Oakland Raiders owner praises offseason moves

The Oakland Raiders have been a cellar dweller in the AFC West for the past few years, but they have been making some impressive offseason moves that have led to the team trending in the right direction for a potential turn around.

This offseason, the Raiders have made additions to the roster that include Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley and Khalil Mack, so their defense certainly should see the benefits of adding that talent in 2014.

For Raiders owner Mark Davis, the team’s offseason moves have been “phenomenal” and he hopes that will lead to more success this season.

“Obviously nobody’s happy with the way that season ended … this year is the year, there are no more excuses,” Davis said, via Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group.

“There were games last year where we didn’t show up. The Kansas City game. One play four times? The same guy scoring four touchdowns? Philadelphia, seven touchdown passes? It wasn’t there. That can’t happen any more.”

With Davis’ excitement entering the season, head coach Dennis Allen, who has been with the team since 2002, and general manager Reggie McKenzie, who also came to Oakland in 2012, have to hope that the Raiders’ offseason moves lead to positive results on the field.
