Oakland Raiders OTAs: Darren McFadden, Juron Criner Impressing

Darren McFadden got injured last year midway through the season and could never get back into good health. His absence was a critical blow to an Oakland team that just never had enough offense to keep up with other teams, and the Raiders narrowly missed the playoffs.

It's the offseason though, and the reports surrounding McFadden seem positive. Evan Silva of Pro Football Talk has some exciting news regarding McFadden.

Perhaps the most exciting news for Raiders fans is the supposed emergence of wide receiver Juron Criner, a fifth round pick for Oakland in the 2012 NFL Draft. Silva has this to report.

If these reports are true, Oakland could suddenly possess one of the youngest and most dynamic receiving units in the country. That would be some offense to contain if they could find the right quarterback to lead all those offensive weapons.

Talk about the offseason success of McFadden and Criner with Raiders fans at Silver and Black Pride.
