Raider Captain and double winner of Committment to Excellence Award is gone

New, comments

Rock Cartwright, a splendid STs player for the Raiders and one of Oakland's four Captains was, apparently, not extended a satisfactory contract offer by the Raiders. The Rock will walk ... across the Bay to the 49rs.

We are watching a young team ... something like 7th or 8th ... become younger by the day. The hoary Carlisle is gone and with him O'l John Henderson, Jason no-spring-chicken-Campbell and his former teammate (twice now) - Rock, the long in the tooth former STs leader.

There is a trend here, imo, to jettison most of the older players and bring in new young blood with the talent that Reggie sees and the spirit that Allen wants with his players.
