Fox Sports is reporting that Clive Walford will miss spring practises following an ATV accident. It is uncertain when the accident took place but Walford is now weeks removed from the surgery resulting from it.

This likely ends the rumours that the Raiders were interested in trading Mychal Rivera.

With Mark Davis pledging $500 million toward a new stadium in Las Vegas if the rest of the funding is ultimately approved by the Nevada State Legislature, it looks like the Raiders are committing to LV as their future home (pending league approval).

Vegas seems like the only bet the Raiders have, with L.A. being blocked off by the league and Oakland seemingly uninterested in keeping Silver and Black.

Personally, I just want the team to have a settled stadium situation and a team that is competing for the playoffs and the Superbowl every year. The team is coming around, this news about LV seems to say the stadium situation likely will resolve soon too.

Not 100% sure about this one, his own post about joining the Raiders has been deleted but one from Derek Carr welcoming him to the Raiders is still there:
Pig Howard, WR, Tennessee
