OAKLAND – News broke this week about how the Raiders have been meeting with every over the hill RB in the league and even one that is retired. Adrian Peterson has met with the Raiders and they have also inquired about getting the rights to Marshawn Lynch while possibly convincing him to come out of retirement. However, this new story is eye opening.
With the possibility of being paroled from prison this summer, Hall of Fame RB O.J Simpson may have a new place to call home. That's right, the soon to be 70 year old has gained some interest from the Oakland Raiders as recently as yesterday. Some Raider insiders are suggesting that since he hasn't actually run the ball since 1976 there is a good chance his body has a lot less wear and tear on in than say Adrian Peterson. It's also a known fact that OJ has shown some real agility "running the train" in the prison kitchen.
Not sure what the rules are as far as who actually holds the rights to OJ but one thing is for certain, the Oakland Raiders are turning over every rock to find their next great Running Back.
Stay tuned for more details.
