OAKLAND (Bleacher Report) – With a few necessary tweaks to replace the sputtering tail end of their 2011 season, the Raiders may have very well been sitting in the driver’s seat in 2012.
Unfortunately, they were forced to release some solid production that helped contribute to their 2012 success. To add insult to injury, the flashy talent pool was running on empty when it came to their first selection in the 2012 NFL Draft.
To put it softly, their 2012 offseason has been a nightmare. The new general manager, Reggie McKenzie, was handcuffed from the beginning. The reality of Al Davis’ draft day deals finally caught up to them.
