I want more rings’TwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailOakland RaidersThe past few months have been a whirlwind for Trent Brown. He won a Super Bowl as the starting left tackle for the Patriots and then became the highest paid offensive lineman in NFL history. Those are two pretty big boxes to check. The towering mammoth tackle has the confidence to match. he shrugged at the notion that his accomplishment was unexpected, and with a cool, calm confidence said simple “I always believed it about myself.”As a former 7th round pick, he said he never doubted his abilities or his right to earn top dollar at the NFL level. Even though he’s switching from left back to right tackle for the Raiders — the side of the line that typically sees the best pass rushers; “I mean, when you’re paying those guys across the ball that type of money, you got to pay us to stop them. It’s just, it’s only right.”All right, fair enough. So, he’s got his ring, he’s got his money. Where does he go from here? Well Womens Derek Carr Jersey
, he hopes to stack those boxes.“I want more,” said Brown. “I feel like people think I’ll get the money and then just become lazy but no, I want another huge contract. I want more rings. You know what I mean? I want more of everything. I’m thirsty for it.”The 26-year-old came a long way to get to this point and he wears that fact like a badge. He stood at the podium Sunday in Napa wearing a shirt of his own design. The logo means TB77 — his initials and number — which he calls the Greatest Underdog.“I just feel like I’ve been put on the back burner my whole life,” Brown continued. “Me, just from being a seventh round draft pick to now. And even through the process, people try to dim my light. This is my shirt right here. ‘TB77’, greatest underdog. It explains itself. Greatest underdog. I was drafted in the seventh round and now I’m the highest paid offensive lineman in NFL history. You know what I mean, that’s a testament to the work and just the way I go about my everyday life, how I treat people and how I sow good seeds and I’m reaping the harvest of my everyday work.” Some players talk a big game. They act confident, but it’s a thin veneer and the words don’t ring true. Brown talks of his father and how he was a man of few words. But he made those words count. That’s the feel you get from the 6-8 Antonio Brown Raiders Jersey
, 380-pounder. A seeming gentle giant. But not when it comes to getting what he wants. He has earned that. And he isn’t done.Follow @LeviDamien OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Coliseum Authority approved a lease agreement Friday to keep the Raiders in Oakland for at least one more season.The board voted unanimously to approve the lease for 2019 with an option for 2020. The deal still must be approved by the Oakland City Council and the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, but no hang-ups are expected.The Raiders will pay $7.5 million in rent for the Coliseum and the practice facility in Alameda in 2019 and have a $10.5 million option for 2020 in case their new $1.8 billion, 65,000-seat stadium in Las Vegas isn’t ready by then. The rent will drop by $500,000 each year if the Raiders decide to play one of their two home exhibition games at another site.The Coliseum Authority will retain naming rights for the stadium and get an additional $750,000 from the team to settle a dispute over parking revenue.Barring any unforeseen setbacks in Las Vegas, this likely will be the Raiders’ final season in Oakland after moving back from Los Angeles in 1995. The Raiders began playing at the Coliseum in 1966 and were there through the 1981 season before going to Southern California.New Raiders star receiver Antonio Brown said earlier this week he was excited to be part of the final season in the East Bay.“For me to be here in Oakland, a part of the Oakland Raiders and be able to be on the last team that’s ever going to be here in Oakland, it’s something special in itself Womens Antonio Brown Jersey
,” he said. “So, it’s pressure in that, it’s excitement in that, and there is a lot that comes with that, and I’m here today ready to embrace all that.”The Raiders had pulled out of lease extension talks after Oakland sued the team and the NFL over the planned move to Las Vegas. But with the Raiders planning to practice at the facility in Alameda in 2019, staying in the Bay Area was always the top priority.The Raiders had talks about sharing a stadium with the San Francisco Giants, but that was opposed by the 49ers under territorial rights they have for San Francisco. The Raiders also could have looked into sharing Levi’s Stadium with the 49ers, although owner Mark Davis was opposed to that option.The NFL needed to get a final answer on where the Raiders will play this season in order to put together the 2019 schedule, which is expected to be released in April.
