Wednesday, July 27th, 2011 at 10:12 am in Oakland Raiders.
The Raiders locked up another one of their core special teams players by agreeing to terms with long-snapper Jon Condo on Wednesday morning, according to ESPN.Condo was an unrestricted free agent, and he has spent all four of his NFL seasons with the Raiders. He joined the Raiders at the tail end of the 2006 season and honed his craft under Adam Treu while on the practice squad.
The Raiders cut Treu on the eve of training camp in 2007 because they felt as if Condo was ready to assume the reins. Condo has done nothing to make the Raiders second guess the move.
Getting Condo back in the fold keeps intact one of the league’s best punter-kicker-snapper combos, along with kicker Sebastian Janikowski and punter Shane Lechler.
Just arrived in Napa and am awaiting the arrival of the bus that is transporting players from Alameda to the Raiders training camp facility. I will post throughout the day as players speak and coach Hue Jackson greets the media for the first time since the NFL draft in April.
