Jackson was the team’s third-round pick in the 2014 draft, which turned the franchise around, with general manager Reggie McKenzie taking defensive end Khalil Mack in the first round and Carr in the second.[...] he allowed only 27 quarterback pressures in 735 pass-blocking snaps.When you include Hudson’s $44.6 million deal two years ago, the Raiders have allocated $159 million on the interior of the offensive line — surely an NFL record.Mack, who had 11 sacks last season with very little interior help, will likely surpass Broncos pass rusher Von Miller’s six-year, $114.5 million deal signed in 2016, but he will have to wait until next summer.Because he was a first-round pick, unlike Carr and Jackson, the Raiders were able to pick up his fifth-year option, meaning he will get $3 million this season and his contract doesn’t expire until after the 2018 season,

- Bobby Taylor, soul singer who helped Jackson 5, dies
By Daniel E. Slotnik - Saturday Aug 5, 2017
Bobby Taylor, who had a hit in 1968 with his own soul group but made his most lasting impact when he helped the Jackson 5 secure a contract with Motown Records, died July 22 in Hong Kong, where he lived.Taylor and his band, the Vancouvers, had been signed by Berry Gordy Jr., the founder of Motown Records, and had had a Top 40 hit with “Does Your Mama Know About Me?” when he encountered a group of up-and-comers called the Jackson 5.“He was singing like James Brown,” Mr. Taylor said on the NBC program “Dateline” after Mr. Jackson’s death from a drug overdose in 2009.The title of the group’s 1969 debut album was “Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5.”[...] in a Twitter message after Mr. Taylor’s death, Jermaine Jackson, one of the group’s members, wrote that Mr. Taylor had “put J5 on the path,” and Gordy himself suggested that it was Mr. Taylor who had guided the band to Motown’s studios.The Music, the Magic, the Memories of Motown, Gordy recalled that he had first heard of the Jackson 5 through his creative assistant, Suzanne de Passe.An aspiring singer, Mr. Taylor, who had a working knowledge of several instruments and a supple, silken voice, toured with the Four Pharaohs, a doo-wop group based in Columbus, then studied at San Jose State University in California.Chong, who would gain fame as half of the stoner comedy duo Cheech and Chong, worked with Mr. Taylor for a time in San Francisco before returning to his native Canada.In a telephone interview, Chong described Mr. Taylor as an outgoing, outspoken person who “could sing everybody else’s songs better than they could themselves.”In 1968, they released an album, “Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers,” whose tracks included “Malinda,” written by Al Cleveland, Terry Johnson and Smokey Robinson, and “Does Your Mama Know About Me?” by Chong and Tom Baird.Mr. Taylor released “Taylor Made Soul,” a solo album on the Motown subsidiary label Gordy, in 1969 before leaving Motown in the early 1970s.

- Derek Carr, Raiders agree to 5-year, $125 million extension
By Vic Tafur - Thursday Jun 22, 2017
Derek Carr said he wanted to be a Raider for life, and took a huge step in that direction Thursday morning by agreeing to the richest contract in NFL history.The quarterback will make an average of $25 million a season after he and the Raiders agreed to a five-year contract extension for $125 million, league sources said.The details of the contract were not known yet, but Carr wanted to make sure that the Raiders would be able to extend players such as guard Gabe Jackson and defensive end Khalil Mack in the near future.Carr, 26, is the only quarterback to throw more than 80 touchdown passes and fewer than 40 interceptions in his first three seasons.Carr was picked for the Pro Bowl for a second time last season, throwing for 3,937 yards and 28 touchdowns with six interceptions before breaking his leg and missing the last regular-season game and the team’s first playoff game in 14 years.Raiders offensive coordinator Todd Downing, who was the team’s quarterbacks coach the past two years before getting promoted, tweeted his congratulations.The former second-round pick out of Fresno State has come a long way since an 0-10 start to his rookie season, when he averaged 5.5 yards per attempt.
