Jason Campbell was interviewed on Sirius NFL radio this morning and among the things discussed was player organized workouts.
Campbell, who in recent days posted numerous Twitter photos of his workouts with Darrius Heyward-Bey and Louis Murphy, told Sirius he is organizing player workouts at an undisclosed location with the help of Richard Seymour.
Player organized workouts aren’t the same as coach organized workouts, but they do serve a purpose. Campbell and Seymour are exhibiting great leadership and bringing the team together will ensure players are accountable to each other.
In a way, this is a test of the Raiders leadership structure. It is up to the Raiders players to respond and show up when called upon.
The undisclosed location and time certainly will make it hard to judge and it gives Campbell an easy out if the team doesn’t respond to his call.
