Ever since Carson Palmer came out of his semi-retirement to accept a trade to the Raiders, his tenure in Oakland has been filled with more disappointments than triumphs.
When the Raiders gave up a first- and second-round pick for Carson Palmer in October 2011, the hope was that the former Bengals quarterback who threatened to retire unless he was traded would help the organization to their first playoff appearance since 2002.
Former West Virginia quarterback Pat White is attempting to resurrect his NFL career, and he may have a suitor in the San Francisco 49ers.
Celebrities, activists, designers, scientists and an athlete made up the seventh class inducted into the California Hall of Fame at the California Museum in downtown Sacramento Wednesday.
The San Francisco 49ers will trade Alex Smith, and, according to league sources, the deal has effectively already been agreed to. No trades can be official until the league year begins March 12.
Short of the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints—teams that employ quarterbacks with proven track records who have a handful of productive years ahead of them—the San Francisco 49ers just might have the best quarterback situation in the entire NFL.
After watching the success athletic quarterbacks had this past season in the NFL, new Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson wants to see if he has one of those dual-threat runner-passers on his roster.
Drafted first overall in 2007 following an MVP performance in the Sugar Bowl for LSU, JaMarcus Russell signed a six-year contract with the Raiders that included $31.5 milllion guaranteed. He was out of the league after three seasons.
Regardless of the outcome of Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, San Francisco 49ers QB Alex Smith is expected to ask for his release in the offseason after losing his starting position to Colin Kaepernick.
Even though Colin Kaepernick already has two playoff wins under his belt, he’s not letting that go to his head. “I just try to keep my head down and keep working,” he said.
