Getting ready to leave for Napa and the Raiders’ first practice of training camp.
This morning at 8:30 a.m. will mark the first of eight “learning-intensive” or walk-through practices, although coach Tom Cable did refer to a little more action during drills.
For updates from the penalty box (the 20-yard rectangle on the far side of each field where the media must stay as of last year), check this link to my Twitter page.
The first player interview session, which ostensibly will include recently anointed starting quarterback Jason Campbell and newly-signed first-round pick Rolando McClain, take place following the first practice. There is a second practice at 4:20 p.m.
