Mother’s Day has a special in the Raider Nation.
Every draft, Raiders’ Hall of Famer Willie Brown would announce a draft pick, and, he would say “Happy Mother’s Day.” It became a tradition all NFL draft fans looked forward to. It was a nod from Willie to his mother, his close friend, Carol Davis — the wife of the late Raiders’ owner Al Davis and the mother of current Raiders’ owner Mark Davis — and all the mothers out there.

Sadly, we lost Willie last October at the age of 79, but his NFL draft messages always live on.

We all know the women of the Raider Nation represent well, so here’s a chance to pick up something special for them.
