Raiders Top 10

After more than 20 years and 4,200 broadcasts, the "Late Show with David Letterman," is filming its final episode Wednesday.

Letterman routinely debuted Top 10 lists, so without further ado, here are 10 members of the Silver and Black, past and present, who could attempt to fill the void left by Letterman and host the "Late Show."

10. Brice Butler – Butler aka DJ Duffle has experience performing in front of crowds and also hosted an episode of the "Raiders Report" in 2014.

9. Marquette King – The current Raiders punter hosted "Eight Days 'Till the Hall of Fame," for Ray Guy leading up to his induction into the Hall of Fame.

8. Charles Woodson – Woodson is one of the greatest defensive players of all-time and a wine entrepreneur, so who's to think he couldn't be a great "Late Show," host? Besides his ascots alone would make for must-see TV.

7. Lincoln Kennedy – Kennedy co-hosts a radio show on FOX Sports and is also a member of the Raiders broadcast team.

6. John Madden – The Raiders legend worked as a television analyst for nearly 40 years and has also morphed into a cultural icon as he is the namesake for one of the most popular football video games on the market.

5. Nnamdi Asomugha – With his playing days behind him, Nnamdi has taken to the screen, appearing in several movies and TV shows such as "Friday Night Lights," "Leverage" and "Fire with Fire." He's also married to "Scandal" star, Kerry Washington, so he doesn't need to go far to find his first guest.

4. Jon Gruden – The charismatic "Monday Night Football" broadcaster has become a staple on television, and he has experience on "The Late Show," – he was a guest in 2010.

3. Akbar Gbaja-Biamila – After his playing career came to a close, Gbaja-Biamila made the transition to television. He now works as an NFL Network analyst and also co-hosts the popular television show, "American Ninja Warrior."

2. Jon Ritchie – During his five years in Silver and Black, Ritchie became a fan favorite in Oakland, hosting the popular "Mental Blocks," segment on Raiders television. He has additional experience on camera, calling NFL Europa games as well as appearing on the college football edition of "SportsNation."

1. Khalif Barnes – The self-proclaimed "renaissance man," can do a little bit of everything – play football, tell jokes, even help old ladies cross the street when he's not even there.
