The media had it's annual meeting with the officials in Napa this afternoon, when we were made aware of rules changes and points of emphasis.
First off, the Vincent Jackson rule won't be changed. When the Raiders lost in San Diego last season, Jackson caught a pass and wasn't touched down. He jumped up and spun the ball forward. That's still a forward pass, not a fumble.
Another interesting rule change involves illegal touching by offensive linemen. The penalty will only be called if a lineman is trying to catch the ball. In the past, it was a penalty if the quarterback drilled an offensive lineman in the back.
Not only would that hurt, it would also draw a penalty.
For the second year in a row, Warren Sapp was highlighted for something you can't do to a quarterback. His late hit on Cincinnati's Carson Palmer was shown in a video
Also, the Raiders cut tackle Adrian Klemm, who joined the team Wednesday.
Free agent rookie J.J. Milan, a defensive end, was also cut.
Lane Kiffin said tight end Randal Williams is still dealing with undisclosed personal issues, which is why he hasn't been practicing though he has returned to the team.
