Former 49er and Raider Smith arrested again

Former 49ers and Raiders player Aldon Smith, who's had several run-ins with the law, was arrested again for violating a court order to stay away from a woman who said he assaulted her earlier this month, according to a report.

And that makes four...as in four quarterbacks on the Raiders roster with starter Derek Carr and backups Connor Cook, Josh Johnson, who was signed over the weekend, and Manuel. Given the fact that Manuel beat out Cook to be Oakland's No. 2 QB last year and started a game in place of the injured Carr, you'd figure that he should have a leg up on the competition...in March.

In signing offensive lineman Breno Giacomini, the Raiders added competition at right tackle with the massive 10-year vet, who is 6-foot-7, 320 pounds and started all 16 games at right tackle for the Texans last season. Plus, it also afforded a reunion for Giacomini with Raiders offensive line coach Tom Cable, who was his position coach in Seattle from 2011-13. "Tom Cable has been one of the best Teachers/Coach in my life on and off the field," Giacomini Tweeted after Cable was let go by Seattle in January, following seven seasons with the Seahawks. "Who ever hires him is getting a grinder !!!"

Manziel throws at USD; 13 NFL teams watch

Johnny Manziel threw to receivers at the University of San Diego's pro day on Thursday. Thirteen NFL teams had scouts in attendance.

The Raiders continued being the busiest team in free agency with the signing of linebacker Emmanuel Lamur on Wednesday. The versatile Lamur provides depth at a position of need and played for new Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther with the Bengals, for whom he played from 2012 through 2015. He was with the Vikings the past two seasons.

At least one Raider was not surprised by Ndamukong Suh canceling his visit with the Raiders on Wednesday. Bruce Irvin had previously invited Suh to join Oakland....so long as Suh was "wit" the Raiders.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Now this would be..,something. The Raiders need an interior push and Ndamukong Suh has 51.5 career sacks. But could the Raiders afford him? He has already been recruited on Twitter by the likes of Bruce Irvin and Delisa Lynch, yes, Marshawn's mom. If nothing else, Suh has the persona of an old-school Raider, no?

Entering free agency, the Raiders did not have a draft pick in the fifth round (it went to Seattle last spring in the deal that brought Marshawn Lynch to Oakland) but boasted six picks in the sixth round. After trading KR/WR Cordarrelle Patterson and a sixth-rounder (No. 210 overall) to the Patriots and FB Jamize Olawale and a sixth-rounder (No. 192 overall) to the Cowboys, the Raiders not only essentially flipped two sixth-rounders into two fifth-round picks (Nos. 159 and 173 overall) in the deals, Oakland also cleared $5.08 million in salary cap space. Plus, the Raiders waived LS Bradley Northnagel.

The Bills are hosting free-agent OT Marshall Newhouse on a visit Monday, a source confirmed. Newhouse, 29, started 14 games last season for the Raiders and has appeared in 100 career games (70 starts) for Oakland, the Giants, Bengals and Packers. He also has experience at guard. If signed, he would add depth at both positions for Buffalo. NFL Network first reported the visit.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

In dealing Cordarrelle Patterson and saving more than $3 million in salary cap space, the Raiders are losing a player who led the NFL in kick return average (28.3 yards per return) among those with at least 15 returns last season, and who was one of 12 receivers to average at least 5.9 yards after catch, with at least 30 receptions.

Raiders trade WR-KR Patterson to Patriots

The Patriots have agreed to a trade to acquire receiver/returner Cordarrelle Patterson from the Raiders, with the two teams exchanging late-round draft picks.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Officially official as DL Tank Carradine's signing is announced by the Raiders. He is the 11th free-agent signing announced by the Raiders since Thursday, the fifth on the defensive side of the ball, along with LB Tahir Whitehead, S Marcus Gilchrist, CB Rashaan Melvin and LB Kyle Wilber. CB Shareece Wright has also said he is joining the Raiders, though the team has not announced a move.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Raiders have signed linebacker Kyle Wilber, who had spent the first six years of his NFL career with the Cowboys. Wilber should provide depth and special teams play. Wilber, a fourth-round pick of the Cowboys in 2012 out of Wake Forest, had four tackles in 16 games last season, with 10 on special teams. He has 3.5 sacks in 89 career games, 16 starts, with three forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries.
