Raiders visit Hall

Joining the Raiders rookies on their private, behind-the-scenes look at the Hall of Fame were three of the team’s Pro Football Hall of Famers – Willie Brown, Mike Haynes and Ted Hendricks. The former Raiders greats added personal stories that enhanced the rookies overall experience. Following the tour of the museum, the rookies were shown a special film produced by NFL Films and then listened as Brown, Haynes and Hendricks shared insight into the personal commitment needed to achieve a high level in the NFL.
The idea for the NFL Rookie Orientation Visits to Canton was inspired by Class of 2007 enshrinee Michael Irvin during a conversation with Commissioner Roger Goodell last summer in Canton.
