Defensive end Anthony Smith reported to the Oakland Raiders, nearly a week after announcing he was leaving the team. Smith was put on reserve and remained suspended without pay, the Raiders said Friday. He would not travel with the team for Sunday's game against the New York Jets. A spokesman for Smith announced last week that Smith would no longer play for the Raiders. He left the team last Thursday for his home in Los Angeles.

Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis announced Wednesday that the team will not return to train in Oxnard, as he expects to settle on a Northern California site for a training camp as early as next week. Oxnard officials learned last June that the Raiders planned to return to the Bay Area after 12 years of playing in Los Angeles, so Wednesday's news came as no surprise.

According to NFL Network, the vote was 31-0 with the Oakland Raiders choosing to abstain, as they often do.

OAKLAND -- The allegations in the cheerleaders' lawsuit are pretty straightforward: When it comes to working conditions for the Raiderettes, the Oakland Raiders routinely break California labor law. The women, who are professional dancers, earn less than minimum wage and are paid at the end of the season instead of every two weeks as required by California law. They earn $125 per game and are not paid for practices or meetings. They can be fined for being late to practice, or for not having the right hair color or for failing to appropriately polish their nails.

The Oakland Raiders have asked a judge to prevent the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Carolina Panthers from wearing their uniforms for games in California because they violate the Raiders' trademark rights. The Raiders claim Tampa Bay's pirate logo is too similar to Oakland's. And the Raiders object to the Panthers' uniforms because two colors -- silver and black -- match those of the Raiders.
