As the Oakland Raiders get ready to open Training Camp 2015 at the Napa Valley Marriott, I realize that this is my 16th camp with the team. I also realize that this has to be one of the better training camp environments in the National Football League.
The weather is nothing short of spectacular. Northern California offers very little humidity.
The facilities are all within walking distance. Players and coaches can walk from their rooms to the meal room to meetings to the practice field to the weight training area to the locker room within minutes.
Let's take a look at what we'll be bringing you from Napa as the Raiders prepare for the 2015 campaign and 90 players compete for 53 spots.
Later today, we'll bring you the first look from Napa with photos and video of pre-camp workouts featuring rookies and select players.
Each day the Raiders are on the practice field, we'll tweet photos and updates straight from the practice field. As always, Twitter is the place for breaking Raiders news and conversation about the Silver and Black. Follow us on Twitter.
Keep an eye on Facebook for exclusive content and notifications for new and updated online feature stories, photos and video. LIKE us on Facebook.
Get inside looks at everything the Raiders are doing on and off the field starting Thursday. Follow raidersofficial on Snapchat.
Be sure to log on every day throughout camp for comprehensive photo galleries, LIVE press conferences, Q&As with players and coaches, video interviews and much more. I'll be along with my practice observations each day, Eddie Paskal has you covered with media session Q&A, team photographer Tony Gonzales will provide the best images you can find, and the Emmy Award-winning Silver and Black Productions crew will deliver LIVE press conferences and ON DEMAND video right from the practice field. Check out our Training Camp section.
