Michael Bush first said on Tuesday evening, that Justin Fargas was joining the Broncos. On Wednesday, the team made it official. Fargas figures to have a good chance to make the team. White is suspended four games to start the season, while Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter are both injured. An eight-year veteran, Fargas has only played with the Raiders. He’s averaged 4.1 yards-per-carry for his career, but failed a few physicals over the offseason for undisclosed reasons.
The Raiders picked up former Redskins quarterback Colt Brennan on Saturday to add to their quarterback depth.Wide Receiver Jonathon Holland was released to make room.
Call him optimistic or call him delusional, but Raiders owner Al Davis says the 2010 team reminds him a lot of the 1980 team that won the Super Bowl. “I really liken this team a great deal to the team of 1980, in which the great Jim Plunkett pulled us out of the doldrums, took us to the Super Bowl as a wild card, and we had so many great players who eventually made their way into the Hall of Fame,” Davis said in an interview with Sirius NFL Radio. Davis doesn’t give interviews very often, but he’s apparently fired up enough about his new quarterback, Jason Campbell, that he wants to spread the word that this year’s Raiders are for real. “I see this young Jason Campbell as a football player like I saw Jim Plunkett. He has everything. He was 13-0 in college, at Auburn, he can throw up the field, he can run, he’s big, he’s smart,” Davis said. “I really predict great things for him. I hope he doesn’t let me down. I don’t think he will.”
Oakland Coliseum Joint Venture, managers of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum and Oracle Arena, are charged with the management and day-to-day operations at the facilities. Last year the Oakland City Council passed an ordinance regarding health concerns found from pollution of tobacco smoke. The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum and Oracle Arena will now become “Smoke Free” under O.M.C. 8.30.040, “All facilities owned by the City shall be subject to provisions of this chapter.” The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum and Oracle Arena will now become “Smoke Free” based on the subject ordinance, effective August 1, 2010. As a result of this ordinance, designated smoking areas will no longer exist in or near the Stadium or Arena.
