    Sports Illustrated did a story on him, I think it was called “He can catch the rock.” He used to tease the hell out of Marcus Allen, Was the perfect combination of wise azz and pro bowl player. I remember when NFL Films interviewed him about Marcus Allen’s famous run in the Superbowl. He almost started crying as he remembered it. You must see it.

    A Raider Legend. They should put his name in the Ring of Honor when we get a new stadium.
