NFL News: Raiders Forced To Cancel Remaining OTAs After Complaints

That’s the second team this offseason that has had to cancel part of their OTAs.

The Raiders were informed by the league that they were to cancel their last two scheduled OTAs after the team apparently exceeded the amount of contact allowed under league rules.

Rookie offensive tackle Jared Veldheer told the Oakland Tribune on Wednesday that there was “a lot of contact” in the voluntary practices and “the run stuff is pretty full go.” That would violate the OTA guidelines, which prohibit hitting.

The players union also announced it had settled a dispute with the Raiders over the offseason program, but didn’t specify what the dispute was over.
