Saturday is the day No. 10 of Raiders Wire’s countdown to the Oakland Raiders’ training camp which begins on July 24. Until that day, we will count down the best Raider to wear each jersey number from No. 26 to No. 1 and will now look at No. 17.
Surprisingly, there is not one No. 17 on the Raiders roster right now, and it has not been a favorite number in the past. Only six players (who made the 53-man roster) in the Raiders’ history has worn the number, and five of those guys only played one season for the Silver and Black.
