Raiders | Battle At LB

John Ryan reports for the Mercury News there will be quite a battle in training camp at linebacker for the Oakland Raiders. MLB Greg Biekert will be the starter when the team plays their 4-3 allignment. The outside spots will be a battle amongst Travian Smith, Eric Barton, Bobby Brooks, Bill Romanowski, Mike Jones and Gerald Dixon. The team wants more than last year's 9.5 sacks from their linebackers. "We're a little bit more versatile, and we're applying a little bit more power from that position," Coach Bill Callahan said Friday.
