Minicamp wrapped up today, sending us into the largest downtime of the offseason. The Raiders will report for training camp exactly six weeks from today. A couple weeks after that, the first preseason game. And a month after that, the 2018 season will open. That’ 88 days, to be exact.
There’s a new number 88 in Oakland. And he has the perfect name for it. His number is literally in the pronunciation of his name — Marcel Ateman.
The 6-4, 220-pounder was the Raiders final selection in the 2018 draft. They grabbed him out of Oklahoma State at pick 228 in the 7th round.
He brings size to the Raiders they didn’t have, making him a candidate as a red zone target in the same mold as former Raider, Andre Holmes, who left before last season to sign with the Buffalo Bills.
