Happy Easter, everyone. It’s a day many celebration the resurrection of Jesus Christ. And since we cover the Raiders around here, we look at players rising their careers from the dead. And in the process hope to pull the team fortunes from the depths as well.
This is a franchise that is classically known for the players they have pulled off the scrap heap and returned to glory. They built championship teams in the early 80s with career comeback players like Jim Plunkett, John Matuszak, and Todd Christensen.
That continued in their early 2000s success with players like Rich Gannon, Tyrone Wheatley, and Lincoln Kennedy. And it lives on to this day with players like Darren Waller.
In that spirit, and the spirit of Easter, we take a look at a few more current Raiders players who are looking to follow in the footsteps of these classic Raiders and re-awaken their careers this season.
