    I honestly have to say. It’s because of Reggie that the Raider organization has turned around. This is a team that’s obviously on the rise. With Del Rio at the helm you can expect a hard nose “Raider” defense in the coming years! #WereBack

    I am so excited about this news! Nelson’s going to hold down such an important role in our secondary. Now we just have to add some talent in the middle of the defense and depth in the secondary in the draft. Hope all goes well with Nelson’s signing!

    Jags and Raiders will be replacing the Colts and Broncos soon as perennial playoff teams!
