Raiderbeat.com is having a live chat at noon today, so I guess that's something to talk about. I have never participated in this and I won't be able to, so I can't really give you much details other than that. If you're around, I guess it would be something to tune into. Also, the Silver and Black Blog will be back on July 20th.
Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (above) was in Atlanta yesterday doing an interview.
Here are some quick-hitting links:
- Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha did an interview yesterday about various topics. The previous link will take you to the transcript and this link will allow you to listen to it. It was a pretty decent interview and certainly I enjoyed it.
- San Diego Chargers general manager A.J. Smith doesn't like the competition in the AFC West.
- The NFL announced that it has extended the Rooney Rule, which mandates interviews to minority candidates, to senior football operations positions.

Additional notes and thoughts:
- If you're looking for a positive from Barry Zito, at least he didn't walk anybody.
- The second issue of The Weekly Raider was posted last night by KA1Z3R and it is a good read, so check it out if you haven't.
- Of course, last but not least, free agent defensive end Greg Ellis was inked to a three-year deal by the Raiders yesterday. We're all looking forward to seeing him on the field.
- Last night on Chronicle Live, Thomas Howard was unable to make it. Thankfully, Kirk Morrison was able to make it and talked with host Greg Papa along with writers Ray Ratto and Tim Kawakami.
- I'm hungry, so how about a poll related to pizza?
