Raiders Safeties to Play Both Areas of Safety
Colin Branch, who is an Oakland Raiders safety, has been told to play at both areas of strong safety and free safety. Colin Branch said after the start of a three-day voluntary mini camp that if you get both safeties out there know both, it confuses the offense a little more. He even stated that, “It makes it more difficult for the offense to key in on a guy.”
For Michael Huff, who was a starting strong safety last year, the new roles in cornerback terms is considered as; one is a left safety, the other a right safety. Either safety could line up in the box and the other in deep centerfield on any given play.
The coach of the Oakland Raiders, Lane Kiffin, would hate to give opponents a leg up this early in the calendar, that’s why he would rather not explain the approach. He even said that, “I don't really want to get into that too much. We're looking at a couple different options.” And one of those options turned out to be Colin Branch. In addition to this, the Oakland Raiders employed two pro personnel staffers. However, they have yet to name replacement for former personnel executive Michael Lombardi, who was fired last month. Lane Kiffin stated, “We hired a number of people in the pro personnel department to help us over there, and I'm not going to get into the exact job descriptions.” Fourth round cornerback John Bowie agreed to a contract last week as the organization needs a point man for the remaining negotiations, specifically with JaMarcus Russell, a No.1 overall pick. Al Davis, the owner, likely will take the lead, with Mark Jackson, who is the new director of football development, being involved. Mark Jackson played a high role in pre-draft discussions with JaMarcus Russell and other potential top picks.
Furthermore, defensive end Derrick Burgess, defensive tackle Warren Sapp, punter Shane Lechler and kicker Sebastian Janikowski, did not attend the voluntary team workout, just like quarterback Andrew Walter, who had minor knee surgery last week.
On the other hand, wide receiver Ronald Curry returned to practice after missing two weeks with a minor leg injury. However, wide receiver Mike Williams was not able to practice, due to a hamstring injury, he then worked with trainers and jogged. In addition, Running back LaMont Jordan also missed the practice for personal reasons as stated by Coach Lane Kiffin. As coaches try to decide his future position, Robert Gallery bounced between right tackle and left guard during the practice.
As the Oakland Raiders safeties had to play duel roles, Coach Lane Kiffin knows what would be the best strategy for the team. Moreover, planning for a great strategy for the success of the team requires a deep understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each player’s performances as well as his skills.
And as the Oakland Raiders prepare for the season, major adjustments are considered as well as proper planning for the player’s role and position in the team. In addition to this, understanding of the tasks and practice makes everything perfect and well-organized.
