Lamarr Houston DL OAK 4 Months
Coach Dennis Allen says moving LE Lamarr Houston to the 3-technique defensive tackle spot is "certainly a possibility."
Desmond Bryant held down the position last season, but he's a free agent, and the Raiders may not re-sign him. The 3-technique position is generally the pass-rushing defensive tackle spot. Houston has accumulated ten sacks in his first three seasons, while also being stout against the run.

Raiders LE Lamarr Houston has changed agents to Drew Rosenhaus.
Houston has two years left on his rookie deal, though he may begin angling for a raise after another big season. While the 24-year-old's sacks dipped in 2011, he was a high-impact run defender and pass rusher, the latter in terms of quarterback hurries. New Raiders coach Dennis Allen figures to use more standard 4-3 principles, so Houston may play more tackle going forward.

Raiders coach Hue Jackson singled out Lamarr Houston as a player he wants to see more ''flash'' from down the stretch.
"He's done some really good things," Jackson said. "He plays consistent, plays really hard. Obviously, you want to see more flash because he has that kind of ability, but he's been very consistent and solid for our football team. I'm looking forward to him coming on these last three weeks and playing really well."
