Uh, he played for the Rams, at the same time Roman
Gabriel was the quarterback. (Boy, doesn't this date
me!)

That was when the Raiders were in California, back in
the 60's, early
70's.

Wait! Our beloved Raiders are STILL in California!
They never left. OK, so they were in Los Angeles for a
little while, but the "Silver and Black" are safely
back in Oakland, where they belong again. BTW, they're

play football 'for the Bear' at University of Alabama

Mine too! And it was a wonderful surprise when at the
1968 Democratic National Convention, 1 delegate from
Alabama cast their vote to nominate Coach "Bear"
Bryant for president. It got a bigger cheer than any
of the "real" candidates did.
