First day as Raiders interim head coach Rich Bisaccia holds slew of player tryouts

By Levi Damien

With a new head coach in charge comes changes. Interim head coach Rich Bisaccia got a good look at good many free agent players Tuesday. The team hosted some 11 players, most of whom trying out for the team.

Those players were as follows:

WR Omar Bayless
WR Austin Mack
TE Hakeem Butler
TE Dax Raymond
T Dan Skipper
G Earl Watford
LB Sutton Smith
DB Tony Brown
DB Bradley McDougald
DB Kevin Toliver (visit)
DB Ken Webster

The Raiders have lost two straight after starting the season 3-0. They have also seen a few players go down with injuries and few slated to return soon.

Being that it’s the middle of the season, the fix is not as simple as changing up schemes. And there’s only so much improvement that can be had by rearranging the players they currently have. After that it’s either about trying to uncover a player others missed or make a trade to acquire one.
