Last week, Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell tweeted pictures of himself working out with Oakland receivers Louis Murphy and Darius Heyward-Bey.This morning, Campbell took to the Sirius NFL radio airwaves and said that he and defensive tackle Richard Seymour were organizing player workouts at "undisclosed" locations, what with the lockout back in place after a reprieve over the draft weekend.In a normal year, there would have been a minicamp this past weekend in Alameda, with the Raiders' draft picks in the house. Instead, there has been no word of any player-organized group activities in the Bay Area. Maybe because so many live so far away.
In any event, Campbell and Seymour putting out the call to their locked-out teammates is a huge show of leadership for a team seemingly on the verge of a turnaround after last year's 8-8 season, 6-0 in the AFC West.
