Raiders safety Michael Huff was mostly seen as a disappointment for the first four years of his career. The Raiders told Huff he was on the roster bubble as recently as 2009, but Huffs play improved dramatically in 2010 in a contract year.Former Raiders captain Warren Sapp remembers Huff well from early in his career.Michael Huff leaves something to be desired, Sapp said on KESN-FM via the Dallas Morning News. I watched Huff for two years, not pick a pass off in practice. I seen him make a couple plays, lately. Id really be interested to see his tape and watch his last couple of years because his first two make you want to throw up watching him practice.Sapp said that Huff was often the last to practice and the first to leave.READ MORE AT PROFOOTBALLTALK.COM

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.
