On to Training Camp

The Raiders have signed all of their two draft choices, WR Arman Shields and DE Trevor Scott signed contracts on Wednesday and are ready for camp.
Nnamdi Asomugha has decided not to holdout of camp, he has signed his $9.765 million one year franchise tender and he is also in camp on time.

I know the business of football and sometimes franchise players holdout of training camp as their only means of punishing the team for franchising them but Nnamdi is a straight up professional.

He stated the he will play out the year and deal with the contract next season. He came into camp without the promise from the team that they will not franchise him next season.

He can't sign a long-term deal until the end of the season but the team and his agent Steve Baker can continue to talk.I am hoping that the Raiders do right by him and sign him and Derrick Burgess to long term deals at the end of the season.

This is the first day of Training Camp for the Oakland Raiders it is also known as reporting day. The first practice will be today at 3:00 pdt
