Irvin's tweets stoke feud with ex-Raider King

Raiders linebacker Bruce Irvin tweeted that he has asked to play on the punt return team when Oakland faces the Denver Broncos -- and former Raiders punter Marquette King -- this season. Irvin also tweeted that he's prepared to pay any fines he may incur.

Four Raiders players have changed their respective numbers from last season, including last year's first-round draft pick, the team announced Monday. They are: CB Gareon Conley (from 22 to 21), S Erik Harris (from 41 to 25), DB Darius Hillary (from 31 to 38) and OL Ian Silberman (from 68 to 67).

The Raiders have announced the signings of CB Senquez Golson and DE Armonty Bryant. Both signings would appear to be for depth. Golson, a second-round pick of the Steelers out of Mississippi in 2015, spent the past two seasons on IR with shoulder and foot injuries and on the Buccaneers practice squad. Bryant, meanwhile, was a seventh-round pick of the Browns in 2013 out of East Central University. He has played in 36 career games, four starts, with the Browns and Lions and has 44 tackles, 11.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

QB Johnny Manziel warming up in Austin, Texas, for his final Spring League practice of the week. He'll get around 30-35 snaps Saturday in his first game since Dec. 27, 2015. Scouts from more than half of the NFL's teams have moved through here during the past two days, including two Friday from the Raiders.

Marquette King, who signed with the division rival Broncos six days after the Raiders released him, said he never met Jon Gruden or was told why he was cut. "I just saw him on car commercials and stuff," the former Raiders punter laughed on a conference call with Denver media. "I get to see him two times a year (now)." King also said he did not see the cut coming. "The last few days were definitely different. It felt like—you know how you play those UFC games and you get punched and you're in a daze until you get knocked out? That's what it kind of felt like. It all happened so fast." King was also asked if he thought he was cut because of his on-field celebrations. "Not at all," King said. "The cool thing about the Broncos is the people that work at the Broncos encourage you to be yourself. That is real cool. Players play a lot better when they can let their hair down and be themselves. It's cool. They encourage it. But no, I don't think that's what the reason was. Everybody has their own way of doing things. Maybe that is how they felt they wanted to do things. More power to them.”

I'm told that University of Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander is visiting the Bucs today. He visited with the Raiders on Tuesday. The Bucs also met with Alexander in Louisville last month. After bolstering their pass rush during free agency, secondary is a priority for the Bucs in the draft.

Another ICYMI...The Raiders have apparently found a replacement for the traded Cordarrelle Patterson in Dwayne Harris...and new special teams coach Rich Bisaccia's influence on the roster remains strong. A seven-year vet, Harris has returned 130 kickoffs for 3,392 yards and a TD and 157 punts for 1,524 yards and three TDs. He also has 70 career catches for 827 yards and eight scores. He was a special teams Pro Bowler in 2016. Check out the way-too-early and updated depth chart...

In case you missed it... Jon Gruden's coaching staff is complete. And he has an entirely new strength and conditioning staff under new coordinator Tom Shaw.

The Oakland Raiders are moving to Las Vegas, but for many years it was far from a certainty. This is the story of how a former Raiders running back, a UNLV professor and a 113-page report on sports betting helped ease the Raiders' concerns about Sin City.
