In the past couple days, Raiders players have been trickling into the Bay Area as they prepare to head to 2013 training camp. And today they will officially report to the Napa Valley Marriott.
The veteran Raiders who have homes in the area will arrive in their own vehicles while a great many of the new Raiders players will arrive by bus. They will be packed and ready to spend the next month preparing for the upcoming season.
The players are excited to either be entering their first NFL training camp or to be back again.

The day will be spent checking in and getting settled into their new temporary rooms with their roommate.
Tomorrow is when the fun starts. It will be a day of meetings as the players and coaches get fully prepared for the month ahead. The following day, they hit the field for practice. It's about to get real, folks.
