A few Oakland Raiders’ rookies, who were there to help at Raiders coach Ken Norton Jr.’s football camp, showed off their soccer skills during downtime at the camp.
The two showing off their foot skills did not include former soccer star and now Raiders safety Shalom Luani, but it was Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley (trying to) and Raiders safety Anthony Cioffi.

It started off with Cioffi juggling the football in a slow motion video. He then swiftly kicks the ball to fellow teammate Conley who isn’t able to control the touch and boots it away.
Conley didn’t get much of an opportunity to showcase his skills, but in that short period of time, they were far from satisfactory.
Luckily for Raider Nation, Conley will not be focusing his talents on soccer and instead will be playing cornerback for Oakland, something that he is far more talented at.
