The Raiders contacted the Bears before of free agency to inquire about a Khalil Mack reunion, according to sources.

Jon Gruden wants to win, and there have been occasions during the Raiders’ three non-winning seasons when he has been visibly unhappy.
He admitted to crying for three days after transferring former NFL defensive player of the year Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears shortly before the start of his return season in 2018.The Raiders have had a clear need for a proven pass rusher since trading Mack to the Bears over three years ago, and when free agency started in March, they targeted and expected to acquire Yannick Ngakoue.
The Bears were dealing with serious salary-cap concerns, forcing them to release All-Pro cornerback Kyle Fuller and restructure other contracts, and the Raiders decided it was worth a risk.
The Bears were not interested, according to sources, and the Raiders moved ahead and signed Ngakoue to a two-year, $26 million contract. Raiders officials had no comment, since they don’t discuss about trade proposals given or took, even the most interesting ones.Gruden received fire from the media when he sold Mack for a slew of draft picks, including two first-rounders, nine days before the 2018 season began.

At their joint practice, Hunter Renfrow and a feisty Raiders offense defeated the Rams.

THOUSAND OAKS (California)
Hunter Renfrow, the Raiders’ third-year slot receiver, admits to talking trash at some point in his life. “A few of times,” he said.
Renfrow was one of the few players who didn’t make a commotion with his mouth during Wednesday’s lively joint practice against the Rams, but he made the most noise as teammates roared every time he beat All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey Yeah, as in several times.”If I can beat Jalen Ramsey, then I can beat anyone in the NFL,” Renfrow said.
“That’s how I go about it.”
“The Raiders dressed up to their hotel and stepped off the bus at the practice grounds fired up, and hopefully tomorrow we can make each other better again.”
The mild drizzle and gloomy sky were also a welcome relief from Las Vegas’s scorching heat.
They wanted to make an impression, were free to run around and punch people, and weren’t going to wilt in the sun after a few plays. Oh, and coach Jon Gruden was yelling profanities and berating players for poor performance.
Even for him, he cranked it up a notch and made it plain that he wanted to win practice. “That’s what competition brings you,” Renfrow said.
“On game day, that’s what he does.”
shouting at us, yelling at the officials, yelling at the opposition
Today is the same.
He enjoys competing.

For home games, the Las Vegas Raiders will demand spectators to show confirmation of Covid-19 vaccine.

The NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders stated Monday that fans will be required to provide confirmation of Covid-19 immunization in order to attend home games this season at their glittering new Allegiant Stadium. By Jill Martin, Kay Jones, and Eric Levenson, CNN
The immunization requirement will take effect on September 13, the day before the team’s first regular-season home game against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.
Fans will be able to attend home games without having to wear a mask as a result of this decision, according to the press release.
The policy on vaccines and no masks is the first of its type in the NFL.
The Raiders relocated to Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas last year, but due to the pandemic, no fans were allowed to attend games.
“Our number one priority has always been health and safety,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said in a statement.
“After consulting with Governor Sisolak and other community leaders, this policy ensures that we will be able to operate at full capacity for the entire season without masks for fully vaccinated fans,” says the new rule.
New measures for huge events in the state were announced by Steve Sisolak.
Any event with a capacity of 4,000 people or more can either compel all attendees to wear masks or provide masking exemptions to those who demonstrate proof of vaccination.
Indoors, he said, children under the age of 12 and those who are just partially vaccinated must still wear a mask.
“My goal with today’s new policy decision is to give the private sector additional options with a public benefit — the freedom to remove their mask during a concert or game if they’re completely vaccinated,” Sisolak said.
The vaccine mandate is the latest example of the NFL leveraging its enormous clout to promote Covid-19 vaccines, which offer excellent protection against infection and serious illness.
Those who have been inoculated have been given vast liberties, while those who have not been vaccinated are subjected to onerous limitations and continuous testing.
Furthermore, the NFL has stated that breakouts among unvaccinated players might result in forfeits and jeopardize a team’s playoff chances.
The incentives were effective.
The Atlanta Falcons became the first NFL team to get their entire roster immunized against Covid-19 on Monday, achieving a pristine 100% immunization rate.
The squad said on its website that “each player will now experience the perks of being able to work out and eat together.”
“They won’t have to test every day, they won’t have to wear masks throughout the facility, and they won’t have to quarantine after close contact with someone who tests positive,” the NFL told CNN last week.
According to the league, the lowest club had a 73% success rate.

The Atlanta Falcons are the first NFL club to achieve a vaccination rate of 100 percent.

The Atlanta Falcons are the first NFL team to achieve a 100% vaccination rate. The Atlanta Falcons have completed their team-wide COVID-19 vaccination. All of the Atlanta Falcons’ players have gotten the COVID-19 vaccine, making them the first NFL team to do so.
Because of their vaccination status, the players will not be subjected to daily testing and will not be required to wear masks while visiting the team’s facilities.
The COVID-19 immunizations have been a cause of dispute for some in the league, as a few of the league’s top players have resisted reporting their status publicly.
After navigating various scheduling changes last season to carry out its full slate of games, the Falcons will be able to field a full-strength line-up at their home Mercedes Benz Stadium during the next season. The NFL told teams last month that COVID-19 outbreaks among non-vaccinated players during the 2021 season might lead to forfeits and loss of pay if games cannot be rescheduled.
All NFL coaches, front-office executives, equipment managers, and scouts must be vaccinated.
The defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ head coach, Bruce Arians, told reporters earlier this month that he expects his team to be close to 100 percent vaccinated for their season opener against the Dallas Cowboys on September 9.
