The Raiders have been docked two days of OTA workouts - next Wednesday and Thursday - for apparent violations, which can range from too much physicality in practice to unauthorized practice sessions. It is the second time since 2007 the Raiders have been penalized for such matters. The last time was in Lane Kiffin's first season as head coach and it was for too much contact in what is supposed to be a non-contact offseason.
The Raiders have not responded to an inquiry for a comment but with as much contact as has been seen by these eyes on the one-day-a-week availability, it would not be a surprise if they were dinged for too much contact.
Following then, the joint statement just issued by the NFL and NFL Players Association: "The NFL Management Council and the NFL Players Association have resolved a dispute concerning the Oakland Raiders' off-season workout program.
"As a result, the parties have agreed to cancel two days of the Raiders' off-season program (next Wednesday and Thursday, June 16 and 17) which had previously been designated as OTA days. Raiders' players are not permitted to be at the facility on those days, but will be paid for the sessions. The club cannot reschedule the cancelled OTA days."
