Raiders running back Marcus Allen, who will be lighting the Al Davis torch before today’s game against the Steelers, said through a team spokesman he won’t be talking to reporters.
Allen had been an outcast within the Raiders organization because of his relationship with the late Al Davis. His return comes presumably at the behest of Mark Davis. Interesting to see the reception Allen gets. His arrival with the franchise coincided with its first year in Los Angeles and his entire career was spent there before finishing up with the Kansas City Chiefs.
