The Oakland Raiders have completed a weightlifting program, a rookie minicamp, 10 OTAs and a three-day mandatory minicamp this offseason, and coach Dennis Allen can already see improvements.
“I think we’ve had an outstanding offseason,” Allen said, via CSNBayArea.com. “I think our team from the day that we started the offseason program to where we’re at now, we’ve improved tremendously.”
Quarterback Matt Schaub believes the team is headed for a great training camp.
“I feel like there’s never enough time to get everything you want in but I feel like we were efficient in the use of our time as a group, on the field, in the meeting rooms, away from football getting to know guys, developing that chemistry within the team,” Schaub said. “I feel very comfortable with where we’re at heading into the summer break.”
Allen, who won’t have direct contact with any of his players, believes his team will be responsible over the next five weeks.
“So you always try to tailor your message towards what your team is and what type of football team that you have,” Allen said. “We have a lot of veteran players here, so I expect those guys are going to do the things we need to do to be ready for camp.”
