Raiders camp begins today with weigh-ins, meetings and new head coach Allen setting the tone for his first training camp. The team is fully present, it’s believed, with the announcement this morning that Raiders 5th round pick Juron Criner has signed his contract. As recently as last night there was a reported discrepancy of $14,000.00 on the signing bonus but it was widely believed that Criner’s position was unsupportable with the CBA agreement. In the end Criner and his agent must’ve decided it wasn’t worth holding out of an important camp for the rookie receiver and he apparently caved instead of holding out.
With two signings yesterday, ILB Chad Kilgore of Northwest Missouri State and WR DeAundre (Dre) Muhammad of Indiana University, the Raiders enter camp with 89 of the possible 90 roster spots filled. They have no players on injured reserve, currently, nor any serious injuries at this time.
