ALAMEDA - The Raiders have the perfect candidate for his own reality television show.
He's the Raiders' starting right tackle and easily among the team leaders in locker-room shenanigans.
Whether he's startling a reporter or jokingly explaining his life experiences, Green is always the source of a good laugh.
The laughs range from teammates asking him if he's a "sex symbol" as he strolls around shirtless, to his father-to-son-like chats with Mario Henderson and practice squad lineman Brandon Torrey.
Green passes along life lessons to Henderson and Torrey about how to navigate the social world of being a nondescript NFL offensive lineman, as they lean in and listen with grins on their faces.
If this blog had a parental discretion advisory, I'd gladly pass along some of those lessons. But I don't want to lose my job.
Coach Tom Cable jokingly chided Green this morning for bringing the unit down as he chatted with Robert Gallery and Jake Grove in the shade.
"He's bringing us down," Cable laughed as he saw their "Club Med" set up.
The cameras need to follow Green around. Trust me. It would be hilarious.
*DE Derrick Burgess (triceps) and LB Jon Alston (foot) were not practicing. Alston wasn't on the field while Burgess walked onto the field wearing workout clothes, but no helmet.
Both will be game-time decisions.
I would not be surprised to see Burgess play. Last year, coach Lane Kiffin made it sound as if Burgess had no chance of playing at San Diego and listed him as doubtful.
Burgess played in that game.
