Some two hours into the start of the NFL's new year and accompanying Free Agent Frenzy and three of the Raiders' free agents have been linked to other teams.Quarterback Jason Campbell, who was lost for the season with a broken right collarbone on Oct. 16, was reportedly in "deep negotiations" with Chicago. What makes this interesting is that Campbell has said he considers himself a starter, yet Jay Cutler is the unquestioned starter for the Bears.
Running back Michael Bush, meanwhile, was visiting Arizona and Tweeted of his visit: "Just arrived in Arizona and he weather is awesome. It was getting ugly in Oakland with all that rain."And receiver Chaz Schilens was also spotted visiting the Cardinals.

Derek Carr approves of Tiger Woods' new pool table

Tiger Woods' re-felted pool table is for all of Raider Nation.

To no surprise, quarterback Derek Carr approves of the new look. 

The golf legend tweeted a picture of his new table where he went with silver felt and a Raiders logo right in the middle. Woods' table also has silver and black balls with the Raiders logo on them. 

Woods grew up in Southern California and attended Stanford in 1994, the Raiders' last year in Los Angeles. That same year, Woods helped the Cardinal become the NCAA Division I golf champions before turning pro.

After eating her food as kid, Lynch purchasing restaurant from 79-year-old

Marshawn Lynch first tasted Cassie Nickelson's food when he was nine years old while she catered out of her Oakland apartment.

"When he was 9-years-old, he came across the street to get a hamburger and French fries. 25-cent French fries and a 75-cent hamburger," Nickelson said to KTVU.

Lynch, 31, is now set to take over Nickelson's popular soul-food restaurant, Scend's Restaurant and Bar, in Emeryville. Nickelson, 79, will be retiring in August. 

"I'm comfortable with him and I like him," Nickelson said.

Lynch will not become the official owner until the liquor license changes hands. Scend's, an acronym for Nickelson's children and grandchildren, is known for its seafood, fried chicken and red beans.
