From the late 1960’s to the early 2000’s, the Oakland Raiders (and Los Angeles) have always had a history of greatness at the wide receiver position. From Fred Biletnikoff and Cliff Branch all the way to the Tim Brown and Jerry Rice duo and several in between, many great wide receivers have donned the Silver and Black.
However, the Raiders were in a serious drought of talent at the position from 2003 to 2014. So much so that they reached for players like Randy Moss and Javon Walker, which inevitably blew up in their face. It was indeed a dark period for not only wide receivers, but all 22 positions the Raiders fielded on Sundays.
