    Getty Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller. The Las Vegas Raiders are back in the win column with a gutsy win over the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday Night Football. Fresh off a three-game losing streak, not many people expected them to pull off the win. It took some drama and overtime to make it happen but the Raiders are winners and back over .500 with a 6-5 record. However, it wasn’t all good news for the team as star tight end Darren Waller was forced out of the game in the second quarter with a knee injury. He tried to return to the game before the end of the first half but came out in street clothes when the third quarter started and was ruled out. The Raiders didn’t have anything to say about the extent of the injury after the game so fans are left to speculate. Dr. David J. Chao had a chance to take a look at the play in which Waller was injured. The TV broadcast said that Waller had a bone bruise. That...

However, the duo began to heat up after the first quarter, and Waller finished with 10 catches for 105 yards and a touchdown on a career-high 19 targets.  Waller tied for the most targets in a single game by a Raiders player since 1992, joining Tim Brown (2000), Jerry Rice (2002) and Amari Cooper (2017), per NFL Research.  After Monday's game, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden was candid in his support of Waller, praising the athletic tight end following a career night.  Jon Gruden on Darren Waller getting 19 targets tonight: "We threw it 60 times. If you throw 60 times, you'd probably target him 29. He’s the best player I’ve ever coached, so i’m going...
    Getty Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce. Darren Waller has quickly gone from obscurity to one of the best players in the NFL. The Las Vegas Raiders tight end is a dominant receiver and is already considered one of the three best players at the position. The Raiders’ archrival the Kansas City Chiefs may have the best tight in the world in Travis Kelce. Though the two teams hate each other, Kelce has a ton of respect for Waller. He went out of his way to praise Waller’s skill and his character off the field. Just a dominant force!!! Love watching @Rackkwall83 play and he’s a even better guy when ya get to meet him. Keep shinin’ big dawg!! ???????????????? — Travis Kelce (@tkelce) July 15, 2021 That’s some seriously high praise from a rival but it’s hard not to root for Waller. Just a few years ago, it seemed more likely that he’d be out of the NFL entirely than getting named to the Pro Bowl. He’s always been an elite athlete but troubles off the field...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller. Even before he blossomed into one of the NFL’s best tight ends, Darren Waller was a freak of an athlete. People who are 6-foot-6 and 255 pounds shouldn’t be able to run a 4.46 40-yard-dash. Well, he can and is quickly becoming one of the best offensive weapons in the NFL. The Las Vegas Raiders were lucky enough to be the team to discover him and give him his chance. He’s now rewarding them with elite production and he’s not slowing down anytime soon. The Pro Bowler has become a major workhorse and should only get better. Waller recently took to Instagram to show off a tough catch he made but what people took away was how high he jumped. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Darren Waller (@rackkwall) Considering his size, he can jump insanely high. He may be the most athletic tight end in the entire NFL right now. He was the Raiders’ No. 1 offensive threat last season so there was a lot of...
    Getty Jacksonville Jaguars TE Tim Tebow. Surprisingly, the Tim Tebow experiment continues for the Jacksonville Jaguars. The former quarterback is attempting an NFL comeback but has switched his position to tight end. His athletism has always been his strength and he’s 33-years-old so there’s a chance he can make it happen. If he wants some help along the way, one of the game’s premier tight ends is open to helping him out. Las Vegas Raiders Pro Bowler Darren Waller played wide receiver in college but he was switched to tight end because of his size. He opened up his door and offered help to Tebow if he’s looking for it. “If he thinks he can learn from me, then I’d love to help him and help make his transition smoother,” Waller told TMZ.com. Waller received a lot of help when he first changed position so he wants to be there for other players. “I tried to find any information I could from watching guys play or asking people when I moved,” Waller said of his original transition to...

    Darren Waller has come a long way in just over two years since the Raiders plucked him off Baltimore’s practice squad. After nearly ruining his career because of a drug addiction, Waller has turned into one of the game’s most productive tight ends and is closing in on the franchise record for catches in a season. Waller heads into Sunday’s season finale at Denver with 98 catches for 1,079 yards for Las Vegas (7-8). Waller has posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and needs seven catches to break Hall of Famer Tim Brown’s single-season franchise record of 104 set in 1997. “To even be mentioned with his name is is pretty crazy because I remember watching him when I was super young,” Waller said. “I was like like 6 or 7 years old when he set that record. So to even be in the conversation is amazing.” Almost everything about Waller is amazing as he has developed from a seldom-used receiver in Georgia Tech’s option offense in college, to a disappointment with the Ravens because of off-field problems to Pro Bowl status...
    LAS VEGAS (WJZ) — Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller honored the memory of his former Ravens teammate and close friend Lorenzo Taliaferro in Thursday night’s matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    U.S. under cyber attack believed to be tied to Russia Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell say they will get Covid vaccine in the coming days Raiders TE Darren Waller honors late Ravens teammate Lorenzo Taliaferro after TD A Thursday Night Football touchdown meant a little extra for Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller. With Derek Carr out after sustaining a groin injury, back-up Marcus Mariota connected with Waller on an impressive 35-yard pass. Waller soon got up and made a “3” and “4” gesture with his hands, though the angle made it hard to see. The meaning wasn’t immediately apparent to Fox’s broadcasters, but one of Waller’s old teammates with the Baltimore Ravens immediately saw the tribute to the late Lorenzo Taliaferro: S/O to Darren Waller for throwing up the 34 for Zo!! ????????— Justin Forsett (@JForsett) December 18, 2020 Taliaferro tragically died of undisclosed causes at the age of 28 on Wednesday.

    The Jets knew Darren Waller could be a dangerous weapon for the Raiders on Sunday. Knowing didn’t help them stop him, though, as the Raiders tight end had a field day on the way to a 31-28 win over the Jets at MetLife Stadium. Waller was Derek Carr’s go-to target from the start and carved through the Jets’ young secondary, finishing with 13 catches for 200 yards and two touchdowns. “He’s just a really good player,” coach Adam Gase said. “It’s hard for us to match up with him. We were trying to find ways to get multiple guys on him through some of the zones. But they were finding him. That’s Carr’s guy to begin with. It’s really tough to take him completely away. We gave him way too much though.” Waller had receptions of 18, 12, 28, 38, 19, 29 and 15 yards, with the Jets finding very little answers for him. By the time he scored his first touchdown of the day — getting open for a 9-yard strike with 12 seconds left in the first...
    There was no hiding who Derek Carr’s favorite target has been so far this season. The Las Vegas Raiders quarterback has completed 18 passes to star tight end Darren Waller through two weeks, more than double the total of any other player on the team. Having that same kind of success might not be quite as easy this week against the New England Patriots, who are known for their ability under coach Bill Belichick to take away the No. 1 option of opposing teams. “That’s what they do best, they try to take away your best players,” Carr said. “That’s every week we go out there, that’s what people are trying to do to Waller. … If they want to take that away, then other guys will step up. We’re into team football and not fantasy stats.” Waller is coming off one of the most productive games of his career with 12 catches for 103 yards and a touchdown last week against New Orleans. He missed practice Thursday nursing a knee injury but is expected to play this week. With...
    Getty New England Patriots HC Bill Belichick. After a somewhat quiet Week 1, Darren Waller reminded everybody in the football world on Monday night that he’s an unstoppable force at tight end for the Las Vegas Raiders. Last year, Waller announced himself as one of the NFL’s best tight ends. Any worry about him being a one-hit-wonder has flown completely out the window. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick knows a thing or two about elite tight ends. He had some incredibly strong praise for Waller. “I’m really impressed with everything he does,” Belichick said recently, via the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “He’s very competitive, got great size, got great quickness for his size, catches the ball very well. He can run all the routes. Really is a versatile player, talented. He’ll definitely be a problem for us. There’s not one thing you can take away from him. He does a lot of things well.” Waller went from having one foot out of the NFL due to substance abuse issues and now he’s being called a “problem” by...
    5 Things to Know About ‘Cheer’ Star Jerry Harris Kinross Gold Pays First Dividend in 7 Years With Metal Rallying Out of drug and alcohol addiction, Raiders TE Darren Waller also finds purpose Darren Waller could sense his star beginning to rise last August, when his journey from drug and alcohol addiction to sobriety, and ultimately the NFL’s Raiders, was chronicled on HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” Selected by Baltimore in the sixth round of the 2015 draft, Waller was suspended from the Ravens due to the substance abuse that has plagued him since his teens. After a near-death experience with Baltimore where he overdosed in his car, he underwent intense therapy, returned to the NFL in 2018 and worked hard to carve out a role to keep the comeback alive, which fans of “Hard Knocks” caught a glimpse of. Yet, it’s when Waller made the team and started thriving for the Raiders that he began to see the impact his personal journey was having on people. “People would DM me and they would be like, ‘I got clean because of...
