It wasn’t gameday, but the Oakland Raiders were suited up from head to toe in their Silver and Black garb, ready to tackle Media Day Monday.
A large majority of Media Day is spent filming promos for ESPN’s Monday Night Football and segments for CBS. It’s the one day of the year all players engage in the creation of digital content for a wide array of media groups.
The players participated in a long list of media duties, from pregame and in-game pump-up celebrations, to slow-motion captures, both of which will have Raider Nation ready to rock on gameday. It’s fun seeing Derek Carr and Amari Cooper don their jersey, pads, and helmet, but we got our first look at Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant, and Doug Martin, among others, in their Raiders gear; take a look.
