Las Vegas Raiders announce their captains
The Las Vegas Raiders have announced the captains for the 2021 season.
Derek Carr, Maxx Crosby, Richie Incognito, Alec Ingold, Josh Jacobs, Yannick Ngakoue and Darren Waller have all been named captains by their teammates.
“We have seven captains,” said Raiders head coach Jon Gruden.
“One on the special teams. We had a three-time tie in attack and I wasn’t in the mood to tell Richie Incognito he hadn’t been selected.”
“But it’s pretty cool, the players still admire him as much, and Jacobs and Ingold for them to take this step in their career. You’ve already documented what Maxx and Waller went through. Making that transition to success, smashing success, as captain of the National Football League is quite a story. “
“And Derek Carr, as always, has been the head of our steering committee here. “
A three-way offense now is something else.
The only player who captained last year was Carr.
Last year’s other captains Rodney Hudson, Maliek Collins, Erik Harris and Kyle Wilber all left the Silver and Black during the offseason.
All captains will wear a “C” patch on their jersey to signify that they are captains.
