Here’s a recap of what was written today that you can check out on our new updated web site:
Scan the Raiders roster and there’s a lot of good, young talent. But it’s thin on veterans.
That’s where 32-year-old safety Reggie Nelson comes into play. Nelson’s entering his 10th season, but his first with the Raiders after spending the past six years in Cincinnati. That didn’t stop him from being announced recently as one of the team’s four captains.
“To be voted amongst your peers, that’s a great thing,” Nelson said Wednesday as the Raiders held their first practice of the regular season in preparation of Sunday’s opener against the New Orleans Saints.
Del Rio also reflected on his Superdome memories, which included a botched celebration after returning a fumble for a touchdown.
