VEGAS RAIDERS NEWS: The Silver and Black Today podcast is back with Hondo Carpenter and Rossie the Aussie

The original independent Las Vegas Raiders news podcast from Las Vegas is back as the Silver and Black Today Podcast makes its return.

For the first time since April, host Scott Gulbransen fires up the podcast to talk about the latest in Las Vegas Raiders news and opinions. He starts the show talk about the Julio Jones trade that wasn’t, how some in Raider Nation coveted the wide receiver despite reported reasons to perhaps back off. With the trade of Jones to Tennessee, Gulbransen says he never saw the fit. With a very young wide receiver room in Las Vegas, the Raiders have lots of issues to deal with and the cost for Jones wasn’t in their wheelhouse. While Las Vegas Raiders news has not been plentiful in recent weeks

Gulbransen then talks with Sports Illustrated Raiders Maven publisher and writer Hondo Carpenter. Carpenter chimes in on the Julio Jones chatter and says the Raiders did have a conversation but were never very serious about making the acquisition. Carpenter agrees the Raiders young wide receiver group is talented and the front office feels confident in the group. Carpenter talks about how the Raiders 2021 draft picks, OTAs in Henderson, and where he thinks the team still needs some players – particularly at one defensive position.

We close the show talking to one of our favorite callers from our Raider Nation Radio show – Rossi the Aussie. Rossi is a life-long Raiders fan originally from Europe who discovered the NFL listening to Armed Forces Radio. We talk with Rossi about his impressions of the roster after OTAs and what one position that keeps him up at night.
