NAPA - There’s perception. There’s reality.
Then there’s Tyler Brayton.
He had one of the funnier moments of Friday night’s practice. In one-on-one pass rush drills, he was worked over pretty good by Robert Gallery. At the end of the play, Brayton wouldn’t let go of Gallery’s leg after being put on the grass.
A scuffle ensued with Gallery the aggressor before teammates pulled them apart.
Brayton emerged from the fray, lifted his arms above his head and declared “victory!”
*Tomorrow’s scrimmage will be the last day officials will be at practice. And Warren Sapp probably can’t wait to usher them out.
After a few penalties and calls, Sapp couldn’t resist speaking his mind. He called the officials blind when a catch by Zach Miller looked to hit the ground.
A pass interference call on safety Stuart Schweigert also had him ticked.
“Where are the refs?” he wondered aloud. “They’re not doing (anything). Just like on Sundays.”
*The Raiders released tight end Randal Williams, two days after giving his number to Tony Stewart. Williams returned from a leave of absence for personal reasons. He hadn’t practiced since last Saturday.
*The Raiders signed linebacker Kurt Campbell, who the team had cut last month before training camp. He practiced tonight.
