Training Camp 2009: Day 1

Before I get into training camp. A few Vick updates.

Adam Shefter tweeted this morning that Vick isn’t going to land in Oakland. Nnamdi Asomugha also tried to dismiss the notion that the Raiders like to sign thugs. That really hasn’t been the case in the past 10+ years anyway.

I still think Vick would be a decent option in Oakland, but Peter King after initially thinking it is a possibility, doesn’t any longer. There have been many rumors swirling that Amy Trask may be (unconfirmed rumor*) a big animal lover. If Al thought he would lose Trask due to bringing Vick in, he wouldn’t. She is too valuable to the franchise. She might be the only front office person with that kind of position.

Thomas Howard, Kirk Morrison and Darren McFadden are back in the bay. Looks like the roster flew in yesterday. If you were at the Oakland Airport you probably saw a few players. Just don’t call McFadden a high school football player when your there (via DMC’s twitter).

All signs point to DHB being in camp on Thursday. Rumors are that Crabtree is seeking top 3 money. If he gets it, it will screw up the slotting of the rest of the first round and potentially make DHBs agent look bad. That would mean DHB would get less than Crabtree. I see the next WR diva in Crabtree. Whether he is any good in the NFL I have no idea. Either way, I think I’d rather not have him on my team. I’ll get crap from saying that, but everyone has to have a take and I’ll go with my gut on this one.

More to come…
