Related Topics: Reception, Tight end

Our position battle series rolls on, as today we take a look at the Oakland Raiders tight ends.

While Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, and Co., deservedly get a lot of the attention, let’s not forget that in 2016, the team’s tight ends accounted for nearly 600 receiving yards and four touchdowns.

While Mychal Rivera left in free agency, General Manager Reggie McKenzie signed Jared Cook, and after recovering from injury, Lee Smith will be back in the fold in 2017 as well.

With training camp rapidly approaching, let’s take a closer look at the Silver and Black’s tight ends, and who you should be watching when the team reports to training camp.
