Richard Seymour dropped in after practice to talk about the changes around the Raiders’ facility this season and how the group is dealing with the turnover between the coaches and the front office staff. Seymour raved about the skill of Darren McFadden and discussed how the defense will adjust after being the major weakness of last year’s team.

Raiders rookie and Granite Bay HS product Miles Burris talked about living out his dream as an NFL player, saying the field is leveled slightly in his competition for playing time with all the coaching turnover – even the veterans are trying to learn a new system.
