A get together...
Last season, the Raiders didn't have a lot of wins or camaraderie. But new coach Art Shell is trying to change that.
With the assistance of former Raiders defensive back Willie Brown, who now helps teach Oakland's defensive backs while emphasizing team and player development, Shell organized a fishing trip and barbeque on June 22.
First, about 25 players spent the day fishing on a lake in Brown's hometown of Tracy, Calif. Then, once the fishing expedition wrapped up, the players headed out for a barbeque. The day turned out to be a football version of surf and turf.
