I guess I don't know enough about the Player's Union and its rules on NFL team camps, but this seems a bit ridiculous to me. Believe me, I am no big Raiders fan, but I think this just doesn't make any sense.

Comments?

This is around a month old. I heard about it on NFL Network. I'm guessing that becoming a better team means that much to Kiffin that he is overworking his players.

While some of the News articles may be older. This is the time of year when it is rather slow for NFL News. Please when posting an article take a moment to add a comment. This story is from back in June. However since it was posted comments are welcome.
I have mixed feelings regarding the NFLPA compliants. I understand the reasoning behind them being to limit injuries during training camp but it seems like that is what training camp is for. It is always tragic when a player gets injured during training camp or preseason and there is a contract in place. I just hope that they are holding all teams to the same scrutiny.

It was the last week of OTA's, not training camp. The players will still have training camp to digest the playbook and get ready for the season.
