San Diego and Oakland notes

San Diego Pro Bowl kicker Nate Kaeding has been named the AFC special teams player for the week for his play in a win over Washington in Week 17:

Kaeding made all three for his field goal attempts in the 23-20 win. Two of the three field goals were from 45 yards or longer. He made 32 of 35 field goal attempts this season for a .914 percentage, which is a team record.

  • The Raiders responded quickly to Rick Gannon’s offer to help the team. According to the Oakland Tribune, the team has no interest in getting pointers from Gannon, who won the NFL MVP and led Oakland to the Super Bowl in 2002. The Raiders have been upset with Gannon because of his frequent criticism of the team.
