LaMarcus Joyner was with the Rams when they moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles and is looking forward to playing in Oakland for one season before heading to Las Vegas. “It's a lot of history here so I definitely wanted to be a part of the history and I wanted to be a part of the beginning,” Joyner said, “and make Nevada even more excited.” Joyner said both Oakland and Las Vegas appealed to him in deciding to choose the Raiders, but said the lack of a state income tax in Nevada never entered the Raiders' sales pitch. “That's the kind of conversations with your wife and your kids,” he said.

Lamarcus Joyner initially thought he was going to head back to the East Coast. "Until Coach Gruden called," Joyner said. "Then I did a whole 180." Joyner said he would be maneuvered around the Raiders secondary, from safety to nickel. "Looking back at the Oakland Raiders, they were at one time a prominent and prestigious organization," he said, adding that he wants to be part of the rebuild.

Tyrell Williams is looking forward to being on the field at the same time as Antonio Brown. “Obviously, he's going to command a lot of attention so when they're doubling him, I'll be able to have the opportunity to get a solo (coverage)," Williams said. "So I'm looking forward to that." Williams' 16.3 yards per catch average since entering the NFL in 2015 is the fifth-best such mark in the league in that time frame (100 catches minimum), trailing only DeSean Jackson, Marquise Goodwin, T.Y. Hilton and Rob Gronkowski.

New Raiders WR Tyrell Williams, on why he says Derek Carr is an "awesome" quarterback: "The leadership that he brings. Going against him the last four years and watching how he goes about the game, and watching a lot of film on (Michael) Crabtree when he was here, so I can see Derek throw him the ball and he's just a really good leader. The way he commands the offense is awesome so I'm excited to be a part of it."

Trent Brown, on how and why his game clicked at left tackle for the Patriots last season after playing right tackle for the 49ers for three years. “I think I was playing pretty well when I was in San Fran but what took my game to the next level was just going to an organization who believed in me,” Brown said. “Confidence shot through the roof and I kind of felt disrespected about the trade and I wanted to prove everybody wrong.” The Patriots acquired Brown and a fifth-round draft pick for a third-rounder. He was originally a seventh-round pick of the Niners in 2015. “Pick 244,” Brown recalled. “I was a bit pissed off about it and that's what puts me to work and become the player that I am today and I want to continue to work and become the best.”

Trent Brown, on the phone call he received from his agent advising him to join the Raiders in free agency: "Drew (Rosenhaus) just called me and was like, 'Bro, we've got an irrefutable offer that's going to make you the highest-paid offensive lineman in NFL history and a great opportunity to go and play with a great coach, great coaching staff, great organization, a lot of history, and at the end of the year, you'll be part of the first team to ever play in Vegas.' And I couldn't turn that offer down." Brown's four-year contract is worth up to $66 million, with $36.75 million guaranteed.

Yes, Trent Brown, at 6-foot-8, 375 pounds, is a large human being. Asked if he would play left tackle or right tackle, the newest Raiders offensive lineman simply said, "I think I'll be put in the best position to help the team." Asked his preference, the owner of the richest O-lineman contract in NFL history said, "Whatever helps the team." So there.
