PHOENIX — Integrity of the game. That’s the reason the NFL on Tuesday made what, for it, is the epochal decision to expand replay reviews to include defensive and offensive pass interference, both calls and non-calls alike. And with that, the league suddenly wound up a day early its annual meeting at a swank resort. […]

Packers CEO and president Mark Murphy told Packers reporters on Tuesday that the team is in talks with the Raiders about an exhibition in Canada this August. It has been known for weeks the Raiders were eyeing a game there, but this is the first time the NFL or either team has publicly acknowledged the effort. Saskatchewan and Winnipeg are the most likely locations for the contest, Murphy added. If the former, it is expected the game would be held at Mosaic Stadium, home of the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers play at Investors Group Field. The Raiders hope to play one of their two assigned home exhibitions away from the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum in 2019, a scenario that would minimize exposure to the part-dirt, part-grass football field they have during the overlap between football and baseball season. The team shares the Coliseum with the Oakland A’s. Should the Raiders play a home exhibition outside of Oakland, their rent for 2019 will reduce from $7.5 million to $7 million. It does not reduce to $6.5 million if they play multiple exhibits away from the town. This could be a busy August for the franchise. It also has engaged in discussions to hold joint practices with the NFC champion Los Angeles Rams during training camp. Contact reporter Michael Gehlken at mgehlken@reviewjournal.com.

PHOENIX, Ariz. – Khalil Mack cost the Bears a lot. Two first round picks, a sixth rounder this year and a second and third round swap in 2020. But, the move paid off. In his first season at Halas Hall, Mack’s return on investment was bountiful, filling up the stat sheet with 18 quarterback hits, […]

(File) PHOENIX — The Raiders added a former star Oklahoma quarterback this offseason. No. Not that one. Landry Jones was signed Tuesday to a one-year contract. He joins a crowded group of veterans with an opportunity to compete for at least one backup position behind starter Derek Carr. Some have speculated the Raiders could vie for ex-Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray in the draft, but that is not expected to materialize. Jones, Mike Glennon and Nathan Peterman sit behind Carr on the depth chart. On April 15, all are anticipated to report to Alameda, California, for the start of the Raiders’ voluntary workout program. They’ll be on equal footing to learn and execute the offense. “There’s so many drills that we have, so many opportunities for ourselves to see who’s the best,” Gruden said. “That’s going to be a big part of the next few months. Who can learn it? Who can handle it? Who can execute it? Who can communicate it? Who can bring out the best in the other 10 guys?” Jones, who turns 30 next week, was a 2013 fourth-round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He started five of 18 career games during five seasons in Pittsburgh, completing 108 of 169 passes (64.o percent) for 1,310 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. He did not appear in a regular-season game last year. Pittsburgh released him following the preseason, and he had a brief stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Cook to sign with Saints The expected departure of Jared Cook arrived Tuesday when the Raiders Pro Bowl tight end agreed to a free-agent contract with the New Orleans Saints. Cook was coming off his best season as a pro, catching 68 passes for 896 yards and six touchdowns for Oakland and earning his first selection to the Pro Bowl.

There's nothing on the football field Jon Gruden likes more than a big-time playmaker. His Raiders' trade with Pittsburgh brought to Oakland one of the game's most dangerous scoring threats in wideout Antonio Brown.            from USATODAY – NFL Top Stories http://rssfeeds.usatoday.com/~/600019436/0/usatodaycomnfl-topstories~The-Latest-Gruden-and-Antonio-Brown-quite-a-match/
