You guys wanted to hear from the new guys, so on this week’s episode of Upon Further Review, we feed the people, and bring you conversations with two of the newest Oakland Raiders.
Eddie Paskal and Producer Trav start things off by welcoming in recently signed quarterback Mike Glennon to the program, who checks from his office in North Carolina.
During Glennon’s time on the program, he shares his reasons for signing with the Silver and Black, his excitement about getting a chance to play with Antonio Brown, and naturally, he recounts the story about his day on Gruden’s QB Camp.
“It was in this, like, strip mall, that I guess was his office,” recounted Glennon. “It wasn’t far from where he lived, now that I know the area better from when I was there with Tampa, but when you pull up, it was kind of an unassuming spot that this whole Jon Gruden Quarterback Camp happens at. You get in there, and there’s hundreds of those old VHS videos that he has from who knows when. It’s kind of a long day… It was a couple hours of filming in the quarterback room where you’re watching film and meeting with him, that was about three to four hours, and then you go out and throw with him for another hour.”
After Glennon’s chat, Eddie welcomes in tight end Luke Willson, who joins the guys live from his home in LaSalle, Ontario, Canada.
The former Rice Owl breaks down his unique journey from Canada, to Texas, to the NFL, what he learned spending last season in Detroit, and you know we had to ask about that incredible, hockey hair of his.
“I still got the long hair going right now,” Willson said with a laugh. “It’s almost beyond the hockey flow. It’s kind of pushed past that length. I like it, man, so I’m going to keep riding with it for now.”
As per usual, the show wraps up with “Victory Formation” as Eddie and Trav welcome in Kyle Martin, who breaks down the most-recent iterations of mock drafts, and where he wants the Raiders to go at No. 24 overall.
