We have some our first confirmed camp dates. The first Raiders players will arrive in at the Napa Valley Marriott on July 23. Those first arrivals are rookies, select first year players, and quarterbacks. They will have a three-day training camp warm-up before rest of the team arrives on July 26.
The QBs especially enjoy the warmup days. Since they began doing it, there is a noticeable difference in their play come the start of camp. No rust. And the young players enjoy the extra attention to get up to speed.
There will be no media access to the rookie camp. Up until last year, report day was open to the media where we could get interviews with select players as they arrive for camp. There was no access last year, but perhaps it will be return this year, who knows.
The first day the entire team takes the field together will be July 27. Pads will come on for the third day of camp on July 29. The Rams join them on August 7-8 leading up to their first preseason game on August 10.
