Former Raiders quarterback Rich Gannon is in Napa and currently addressing the team regarding dealing with the media.
Gannon will leave shortly after his talk and fly to Miami and do the same thing for the Dolphins.
When Gannon was with the Raiders, his press dealings ranged from humous to dry to contentious, depending on his mood and how the team was playing. He’s become much more expansive since becoming an analyst for CBS as well as being a co-host for a Sirius NFL radio show.
His specialty during his regular Wednesday press conferences was checking his watch as the questions droned on, the better to exit stage left and get on the practice field. Will be looking to see if any Raiders employ that strategy this year.
