Greg Olson: "Everything we do in this building is about the development of Derek Carr...we grow as Derek Carr grows."

Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson, on how different Derek Carr looks from his rookie year, when Olson was his OC: "He had a big year (in 2016) and still looks extremely talented. He obviously took a step backwards..,but he's demonstrated he's a more mature player. You see that on tape...a lot of upside and a lot of room for growth."

Gareon Conley was Paul Guenther's "favorite" cornerback in the draft last spring. "He's smooth...he's a good press corner, which we love to have. So I'm excited to work with him...We just need to keep these guys out on the grass and keep them healthy and teach them the system. Because I always tell these guys, You don't help us when you're in the training room for 10 weeks out of the season; you're not helping the team. So I'm going to tell the trainer to turn the temperature down to about 60 degrees in the training room this year so we keep them guys out of there."

Paul Guenther: "I think NaVorro (Bowman) is a prototype middle linebacker...I love smart guys who love playing football. Hopefully we can get him back in the fold and keep him a Raider." Bowman will be an unrestricted free agent.

Is Paul Guenther a steadfast 4-3 guy? "I'm going to do the best with the talent that we have...put players in the best position to succeed, whether that's 4-3 or 3-4...I want to get Khalil Mack, one-on-one. That's a blitz to me."

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

New Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther said the Bengals made a strong push to retain him. But..."The opportunity to come out here with Jon (Gruden) and start from the ground up was way too intriguing."

New Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther, on Khalil Mack: "Having a talent like that, certainly you want to make the centerpiece of the defense...he's an exciting guy to be able to coach."
