Taking a look at when training camp starts for the Oakland Raiders and where the team will be practicing
This could potentially be the last time that the Oakland Raiders are in Oakland. While there were previously rumors that the team could be moving to Los Angeles, CA, it’s now looking more and more plausible that the Raiders could be on the move to Las Vegas, NV sooner rather than later. Subsequently, this 2016 season for the Raiders could have quite a strange feel to it.
However strange it might feel, though, the Raiders seem to be like a team on the cusp of doing something quite special on the field. As a young team last season, they were one of the most impressive 7-9 teams in the entire league. Derek Carr looked to be taking the leap to being a viable NFL starting quarterback while Khalil Mack and the defense progressed as well.
After adding Karl Joseph and a bevy of other draft picks to the defensive side of the ball this offseason, the Raiders are now looking at what other steps they can take forward.
Obviously the defensive talent drafted in the early rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft is going to be a major help in taking steps forward and potentially competing for a playoff spot. However, fans are also pining to see what the addition of Bruce Irvin will look like for the defense and what a vastly improved offensive line will look like for Carr and for the Raiders offense as a whole. Therefore, fans are looking out for Raiders training camp and wondering when it starts and where it’ll be held.
Rookies have already reported to Raiders training camp as of July 24, but veterans and full camp will report on July 28 to the Napa Valley Training Complex in Napa, CA.
