Working out of St. Helena, Clearlake and Vallejo over the last six months, I have been staying a couple of nights a week at the Napa Valley Marriott. When I checked in Monday night, something was definitely up. Part of the parking lot was blocked off and guarded. Walking to my room, one of the halls was blocked and guarded. The Oakland Raiders are here for the next four weeks!?!
The Oakland Raiders report to the team’s Napa Valley Training Complex at the Napa Valley Marriott for the start of Training Camp 2015. The rookies report July 26 and the full squad reports July 30. The team will hit the field for their first practice July 31.
The rookies will have a few extra days to get into their playbooks, work on conditioning and immerse themselves in football learning before the vets arrive. The Raiders break camp Aug. 25 and return to their Alameda, Calif., facility.
