The entire Raiders organization could stand an intervention. Hardly news, I know, just reiterating the obvious after the latest from NFL.com's Adam Schefter. He reports that things are so unbearable in Oakland that players are actively seeking to get DeAngelo-ed.
The top sports headlines of the day
Players in Oakland are so unhappy with the environment, the losing, the instability, that many would prefer to leave. This is not entirely uncommon around a losing team, but it is more extreme in Oakland than anywhere else.
It is thought to be one reason that Nnamdi Asomugha has been so apprehensive about signing a long-term extension with Oakland, why free-agent acquisition Gibril Wilson would welcome the opportunity to get to choose a new team again, why Walker considered leaving last summer.
Fact: It has gotten so bleak that, just this past week, at least one prominent player actually considered quitting, taking a leave of absence, just because he feels like he cannot take it anymore. He wound up not doing it, but chances are he is hardly the only Raider thinking it.
