Who will catch Palmer’s passes week 1?

As Monday night approaches we know that Raiders QB Carson Palmer will drop back to pass a number of times.  What is less clear is who will be available to be the targets of those passes and how well they’ll do. The team came into training camp with receiver an overstocked position, but with questions […]
