Answering your Raiders (and some non-Raiders) Mailbag questions

This is my favorite experience meeting the Raiders, what’s yours?

Here is my story from when I got to meet players on the Raiders, add yours in the comment section. With training camp around the corner, I thought it would be a cool idea to share my favorite story meeting a Raiders player(s), and encouraging the community here at Silver & Black Pride to do the same.
