Del Rio: Raiders Latavius Murray and Trent Richardson to compete
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio expects Latavius Murray and Trent Richardson to compete for the starting running back spot on the team, per ESPN.

"I think it will be a competitive situation," Del Rio said.

Del Rio also spoke about the fact that he is encouraged by Richardson's potential.

"What I saw when we brought him in and talked to him was a young man that was hungry to kind of leave that portion of his career behind him and start fresh," Del Rio said. "My challenge to him was, 'Look, I don't want you to worry about anything other than coming in here and competing your butt off every day. Come in here and be a great teammate. Come in here and find a role on special teams. Come in here and just grind every day with the hunger you had as a freshman at Alabama.'"

Jack Del Rio wants Raiders to offer stronger rushing attack
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

In Raiders coach Jack Del Rio's mind, quarterback Derek Carr was asked to do too much in his rookie season. 

Carr threw the ball 599 times and completed 348 of those passes for 3,270 yards, 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Now that Del Rio is at the helm, he's looking to run the ball a lot more to balance things out. 

"I thought it was all about Derek last year," Del Rio said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. "I want to be able to run the ball, play good defense."

The Raiders are likely to rely on Latavius Murray to be the feature back now that Maurice Jones-Drew has retired and Darren McFadden has left for Dallas. Del Rio believes that a balanced attack should open the game up more for Carr in his second season. 

"If we do things around him, he really has a chance to flourish," Del Rio said. "He is really accurate. He has a huge upside."

Raiders may play Khalil Mack at defensive end
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Raiders may solve their pass rushing needs by moving second-year linebacker Khalil Mack to defensive end. 

Mack was drafted fifth overall last year, after tying the NCAA career record for tackles-for-loss. He had four sacks for the Raiders as a rookie. 

"He plays defensive end for us already in sub packages," coach Jack Del Rio said at the NFL owners meetings, per ESPN. "So, I think it would be natural for him to be able to play whatever we decide is best for him, how it helps the team best. ... He’s definitely shown he’s got ability to be an edge rusher, a defensive end, he is that in that capacity. I feel like it’s how we best want to utilize him and who we have around him as well."

Raiders announce signing of RB Trent Richardson
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Raiders announced they've signed running back Trent Richardson, who was cut by the Colts last week after two disappointing seasons with the team.

The deal is set to pay Richardson $3.9 million over two years but includes incentives that can raise the deal to $4 million per year, NFL.com reports.

Richardson joins a backfield featuring Latavius Murray, Roy Helu and Marcel Reece. Richardson has averaged 3.3 yards per carry over his career since being drafted No. 3 overall in 2012 by Cleveland.

Richardson scored 12 touchdowns as a rookie but has a total of seven in the past two seasons.
