Broncos

Broncos HC Gary Kubiak said veteran DE DeMarcus Ware missed the first day of OTAs to prevent any wear and tear to his back issue and will take a “day-to-day” approach for the remainder of team activities.

I would tell you it’s probably more preventative than anything,’’ said Kubiak, via Mike Klis. “He’s going to be a day-to-day participant. I’m going to have about 10 guys that are going to go every other day. We’ll probably make decisions on DeMarcus day to day on how he’s feeling.”

Kubiak also said LT Russell Okung will miss the remainder of OTAs, since he is still recovering from shoulder surgery.

Raiders

Raiders owner Mark Davis said that he’s “excited” about the possibility of a new stadium in Las Vegas, and believes it would actually “unite” their fans.

I’m excited about it,” Davis said, via Pro Football Talk. “It’s a new market. It’s got the potential to be a really exciting market. . . . The Raider fan in Northern California get upset a little bit when we talk about going to Los Angeles, and the L.A. fans get a little ticked off at the fans in Northern California, so it seems like Las Vegas is a neutral site that everybody’s kind of bought into. It will unite the Raider nation more than divide it.

Davis also reiterated his commitment to moving to Vegas if the funding for a new stadium comes through.

I’ve given my commitment to Las Vegas, and if they can come through with what they’re talked about doing, then we’ll go to Las Vegas,” Davis added.

  • Jason Cole of B/R spoke to 16 NFL owners on Tuesday with 14 of them saying that would at least be open to the idea of the Raiders relocating to Las Vegas.

  • Cole adds that NFL owners would prefer for the Raiders to remain in Oakland if at all possible.
  • NFL commissioner Roger Goodell did say that he spoke with Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf on Monday night about stadium for the Raiders and added that they need a combined solution. (Jason Cole)
