ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the recent developments related to the football team Oakland Raiders. It is unlikely football player Charles Woodson, who has been out since October 23, 2005 will play again this season. The team will have to decide whether to use the franchise tag on him for a third straight year, sign him to a long-term contract or let him become a free agent. Football player Courtney Anderson likely is done for the season after injuring his knee. Football player Zeron Flemister, his likely replacement, is a more accomplished blocker than Anderson but is not as adept at receiving.
