With Oakland suing the Raiders and the Raiders yanking
an offer for a one-year lease and the Raiders previously threatening to leave Oakland if Oakland filed its lawsuit Drew Lock Denver Broncos Jersey , the Raiders may be playing their last game ever (or at least until they inevitably move back there again) in Oakland. In prime time. On Christmas Eve.And with no clarity regarding a mutual commitment to continue the relationship beyond the regular-season home finale, plenty of fans will assume that the Raiders will be pulling the ultimate Grinch move on what could become a nightmare before Christmas.What happens under those circumstances remains to be seen, but things could get ugly. Last Browns Game in Cleveland ugly. Or maybe Disco Demolition Night in Chicago ugly. Wherever it would land on the overall ugly scale, it’s the kind of ugly that the NFL shouldn’t want playing out in what will be the final game of the year.So maybe the NFL should exercise its prerogative to move the game, being proactive on this one instead of saying after the fact, “We didn’t think this would happen.” With the Raiders eliminated from playoff contention and the Broncos likely heading in that direction, there will be no significant competitive advantage or disadvantage to either team, and no reason to not relocate the game — if there’s any concern that the game will become secondary to the scene that could unfold in the last game at a dilapidated stadium featuring multiple dead animals, periodic sewage issues, and a really old X-ray machine, the smart move would be to move the game to Denver or Arizona or L.A. or anywhere but what would be the last game ever in Oakland.At least until they inevitably move back there again.

Noah Fant has big first round tight end shoes to fill for the Denver BroncosComparisons across generations are rarely fair. However, the Denver Broncos selection of Noah Fant in the 2019 NFL draft necessitates one. That night in Nashville, Denver did something that they haven’t done in 47-years and only once in their history, drafted a tight end in the first round.In 1972, with the 6th overall pick, the Denver Broncos selected tight end Riley Odoms out of Houston. At the time, Odoms selection was the highest for a tight end in the NFL draft since Mike Ditka in 1961. Expectations for Odoms were high and he met every one and excelled as the greatest tight end in Broncos history until Shannon Sharpe hit the scene in 1990. To quote Kaptain Kirk’s article that declared Odoms the greatest to wear jersey #88 (from 2011 when Demaryius Thomas’ run with the Broncos was in its infancy):Considering the era in which he played and the stats he amassed while doing so, it’s surprising that his is a candidacy for the Broncos ring of fame you never hear much about. Remember, he played in an era when head slaps and on-the-field muggings were just another part of the game. As a 1st round pick, Riley Odoms lived up to expectations as a Denver Bronco.
