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.

  • He'll take the $, but would think he considers staying if equal offer. Raiders normally have to overpay. https://t.co/AomILzvt8a

  • Offense always has the advantage until pads go on. Important thing to remember for first couple days of camp.

  • Training camp injuries are the worst. Feel terrible for a guy like Kyle Williams who has already overcome a lot to even being playing.
