Raiders Sign Raider Fan Darryl Blackstock

The Raiders signed free agent linebacker Darryl Blackstock. Blackstock is a self-proclaimed “RAIDER FAN 4 LIFE.”

Blackstock is 28 and previously played for the Bengals and Cardinals. He spent the 2010 season with the Florida Tuskers of the UFL and Raiders defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan.

Blackstock was drafted in 2005 at the end of the third round by the Arizona Cardinals.

Blackstock instantly becomes a fan favorite, partially because he is a Raiders fan and partially because his name is Blackstock. He’ll have a tough time making the roster, but the fans will love him along the way.

  • Kind of guy that drives coaches nuts. Has all the tools, but plays out of control and undisciplined. https://t.co/Z71uSzws9F
