Raiders countdown to kickoff: 40 is Kenneth Durden, who wore it best?

New, comments

Just 40 days remain until the Raiders season opener in Tennessee. Let’s take a look at number 40 for the Raiders right now.

CB Kenneth Durden

The Raiders signed Durden as an undrafted free agent out of Youngstown State in 2016. After spending all of last season on the team’s practice squad, he is back to take another crack at making the regular season roster.

Who wore it best: FB Pete Banaszak

A fifth round draft pick by the Raiders in 1966, this bruising fullback spent his entire 13-year career in Oakland. In his second season with the team, they were in the Super Bowl. The Raiders would be a playoff team for 10 of the next 11 years. In 1975, Banaszak led the team with 672 yards rushing. The following year, the Raiders would win the Super Bowl. He is the Raiders' sixth all-time leading rusher with 3772 career rushing yards. His 47 career rushing touchdowns are second most in team history behind only Marcus Allen (79).
