ALAMEDA Tyrell Williams Jersey , Calif. (AP)subpar seasons led to his offseason release by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Getting the chance to do it near his boyhood home in Northern California, with an Oakland team featuring a strong offensive line and a coach in Jon Gruden eager to establish a powerful running attack, only made the decision to join the Raiders even easier.Now Martin wants to prove he can get back to the form that made him a Pro Bowler twice in his first four seasons.”My approach is just basically I’m a rookie again,” Martin said. ”I have to prove to the team and the players, coaches that I can be useful on this team. Like I said, I just act like a rookie and go out and play. Play the game that I love.”Martin has had a roller-coaster career since entering the league with Tampa Bay as a first-round pick out of Boise State in 2012. He is the only player currently on an NFL roster with two seasons of at least 1,400 yards rushing, reaching that mark as a rookie with the Bucs and then again three years later in Tampa Bay.But he has failed to reach 500 yards rushing in his other four seasons in the NFL and is also the only active player with two seasons averaging fewer than 3 yards per carry with at least 100 attempts, doing that the past two years when he was hampered by injuries and a four-game suspension for violating the league policy on performance-enhancing drugs.Martin also was suspended one game last year by the Bucs for a violation of team rules, all contributing to the decision by Tampa Bay to cut him this offseason.”The past couple of years I just got in my own way,” he said. ”Being here and having my family around and old friends Trent Brown Jersey , it’s definitely going to help me stay busy. I can always confide in them if I need something to talk about.”Martin, who grew up in nearby Stockton, fondly remembers his only other trip to the Bay Area as a professional when he ran for 251 yards on 25 carries in Oakland as a rookie in 2012 with about 50 friends and family members in the crowd.Martin also said the opportunity to run Bay Area hills near his grandfather’s house has helped get him in top condition that he hopes will benefit him once the season begins.That work has shown up on the field.”He finished a run to the end zone today and didn’t stop until he got there and then he ran back to make sure he’s getting even more in shape,” quarterback Derek Carr said. ”It’s little things like that that show young guys, `Hey man, that’s how you do it.’ That’s been since Day 1. He’s been one of the hardest workers since we got here in Phase 1, hands down. He’s been one of the guys out there that just every day sticks out doing something where you see why he’s a Pro Bowler.”The Raiders are hoping Martin will fit in well in a backfield led by Marshawn Lynch, who rushed for 524 yards and five TDs in his final eight games last season, ranking tied for third in that span in yards rushing per game.Oakland didn’t get much consistent help from backups Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington a year ago, leading to the move to add Martin to the mix.”Doug has really jumped out in this camp,” offensive coordinator Greg Olson said. ”His quickness Lamarcus Joyner Jersey , his ability to pick up the offense and what we’ve given him. That’s been very encouraging. He really has a fresh set of legs and that’s probably been the most encouraging. When you watch him run out here in the drills that we’ve run and the strength and conditioning staff and the things that we’ve been doing there, it just looks like he’s got a real fresh set of legs.”— We began this list of the Top Five revenge games for Derek Carr with their week four match-up with the Colts.

That’s who they faced in the 2016 game in which Carr broke his fibula. But it was the following week – the season finale – against Denver that officially knocked the Raiders out of first place in the AFC West. That’s where the head once again this season and Derek Carr is hoping he will be on the field this time for the last of the top five Derek Carr revenge games of 2019.If you like, you can start this series at the beginning with the week four vs the Colts.Season finale in DenverIt must have been devastating for Carr to helplessly watch his team lose that game in Denver in 2016 after leading them to a 12-3 record and putting them in position to win the division. As far as season finale’s go, it was one of the more important ones for the Raiders over the past 16 years and he could do nothing but hope for the best.There are a lot of what we call back breakers in sports. But usually we’re speaking figuratively. We use the term for those moments and those games when a team officially ends another team’s hopes. Then there is the rare instance in which that term is a literal one. Derek Carr had such an instance. He literally broke his back against the Broncos.The 2017 season was full of hope. The Raiders were coming off their first winning/playoff season in 14 years and were looking to do it again. That season went off to a great start. They went 2-0 with wins in Tennessee and at home against the Jets and they were literally dancing on the sidelines. The following week was the infamous protest week in Washington in which everything seemed to fall apart for the Raiders. Most fans seem to point to that game as a turning point. It might have been. But it also could have been the following week in Denver.Carr had been sacked four times in Washington the week before and so he was a bit nervous back there. He dropped back for his 18th pass attempt, felt pressure and panicked, then suddenly there was Adam Gotsis, so Carr tucked to brace for the hit and put his back right into Gotsis’s knee. You can’t really be blame Gotsis in this instance. Though with the fury of Raiders fans at the time, you’d think Gotsis went all Bane on Carr. But regardless, Carr left the game with what turned out to be three fractures in his back.EJ Manuel came in for him and very nearly led the Raiders to a comeback win, but they would fall 16-10 to their bitter rivals that day. Manuel would start the following week against the Ravens and lose that game too. These games were part of a four-game losing streak Brandon LaFell Jersey , digging a hole the Raiders couldn’t fight their way out of.That season the Raiders would finish 6-10, leading to the end of Jack Del Rio’s tenure as Raiders head coach a year after signing an extension, and ushering in the second Jon Gruden era. Now in his second season in Oakland, giving Derek Carr the same offensive coordinator for two consecutive seasons for the first time since the 2016 season, he is hoping to re-write the story of that season with a happier ending. A season that once again ends in Denver. Helping Carr sleep some is having beaten the Broncos two of the last three times he’s faced them since that literal back breaking game. This includes the last time these two teams faced off in a primetime match-up last season in what some thought may have been the Raiders last game in Oakland. That was one of the best games in Carr’s career and it was in front of a national audience.But I’d imagine those two wins since don’t in any way make up for the two losses that preceded them. You don’t get over such things so easily. Or rather he better not get over it so easily. This figures to be his last as an Oakland Raider before the team heads to Las Vegas. Whether it’s his last as a Raider altogether will depend wholly on how he performs in these revenge games — all of which happen to be away from Oakland — as well as all the other games in which he won’t have as much fuel to put on his fire.Also see Derek Carr revenge games week four vs the Colts, week five vs the Bears, week 8 vs the Texans., and week 13 at Kansas City vs the Chiefs.Follow @LeviDamien
