Bruce Campbell Switching Back to Tackle

Bruce Campbell was recently on Jay Richardson’s Radio show and confirmed he would be moving back to tackle in 2011.

This is surprising considering the drafting of Joseph Barksdale and the pending release of Cooper Carlisle and begs the question if Mario Henderson and Langston Walker will be retained.

It will also be very interesting if Campbell and rookie Joseph Barksdale battle for the starting job at right tackle.

The other possibility is the Raiders are sticking Campbell behind Veldheer at left tackle and his opportunity for snaps will decrease even further.

It could also be a sign that the Raiders have targeted a guard in free agency and are shuffling the line around to accommodate him.

    Hoping for the “the Raiders have targeted a guard in free agency” option to be the winner here.
