Terrell Owens working with Raiders players

Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey Tweeted out an interesting picture this week.In writing, "in LA getting it," Heyward-Bey posted a photo of what appeared to be a post-workout pic. Nothing unusual there, right? Not with Heyward-Bey flanked by Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer, tight end David Ausberry and fellow receiver Eddie McGee.But the fifth member of the photo is what got tongues wagging -- Terrell Owens.Might the 38-year-old T.O., who is still insisting he can play in the NFL despite last suiting up in the league for, ahem, Palmer and Cincinnati in 2010, be angling for a tryout with the Raiders?Well, the veterans minimum for a 10-plus-year vet for the 2012 season would be 925,000, so he could come relatively cheap. And the 49ers across the Bay are taking a similar risk with Randy Moss.I lobbed the question on my Thursday chat if anything should be made of T.O. purportedly working out with Raiders players, and the answers were pretty predictableThat even at his age To he still in better shape than all those guys. -- Ghost of M BushYes, that TO called CP, begged him for another publicity opportunity.. -- Emil the DaneT.O. was the cheerleader. You know how he could work those pom palms -- grayTO cannot play LB but he can play victim well -- richardinaboxTO was there to plant a seed in R mK like we he is at Laker games and tries to be incognito ..but ends up kiising himself during the Kiss Cam -- T O's AgentHe probably wouldn't be a bad possession receiver. The second he acts up show him the door. -- TheRoddyPSo I ask you -- should the Raiders at least kick the proverbial tires on T.O. (as I duck for cover)?

Oakland police credit Raiders QB Derek Carr for helping find missing child

Oakland police credit Raiders QB Derek Carr for helping find missing child

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has 247,000 Twitter followers and, given his popularity in the Bay Area, it’s assumed a significant portion stems from this region.

Carr put that megaphone to good use.

Oakland Police sent out an Amber Alert on Saturday hoping to find a young boy gone missing, and Carr retweeted that call for public assistance.

The boy was quickly found after a citizen replied on Twitter and provided information that led to the rescue.

That led an Oakland police officer to credit Carr for helping find the boy.

Carr responded to the news on social media, happy police were able to find a missing child.

Raiders S Karl Joseph named to PFWA All-Rookie team

Raiders S Karl Joseph named to PFWA All-Rookie team

Injury issues bookended Karl Joseph’s rookie year. The Raiders brought their first-round strong safety along slowly while recovering from ACL surgery, keeping him out of defensive action during 2016’s first two games. He missed four at regular-season’s end with a toe injury.

In the middle he played just fine. Joseph was solid against the run and impactful playing deep, allowing him and veteran Reggie Nelson to remain unpredictable in deep coverage.

Joseph finished the year with 60 tackles, an interception and six passes defensed.

That was good enough for recognition on the Pro Football Writers of America’s All-Rookie team, which was released on Tuesday following a vote of the association’s membership.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa were the offensive and defensive Rookies of the Year, respectively.
