ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Raiders will hold training camp in Napa, California, for the 24th consecutive summer.
Here are several dates of note.
As context, 16 full-squad practices are scheduled overall, although that figure is tentative. Last year, coach Jon Gruden concluded camp a day early. Each session will be from 9:15 a.m. to noon, beating the heat before a regular season with eight games starting at 10 a.m. Pacific time.
Of those eight, an Oct. 6 game in London deserves context. Gruden has indicated the Raiders plan to arrive Sept. 30, facilitating the acclimation to an eight-hour time difference before a local 7 p.m. kickoff against the Chicago Bears.
