With 77 days until the opening game of 2020, we start the count down with the best Raiders player at every jersey number. Today we focus on No. 77.
With the season a few months away, we take a look at the best player to wear the jersey number of the number of days left before the opener on September 13, 2020 against the Carolina Panthers. That game will kick off the new era of Raiders football.
We continue our series with No. 77.
There have been some outstanding players to wear the No. 77 for the Raiders, including Bubba Smith, who played two years with the team, and started 25 of 26 games. Matt Shaughnessy had a few good years with the Raiders, including 2010, where he racked up seven sacks in only eight starts.
Currently, Trent Brown dons No. 77, and he made his presence felt in his first season in the Silver and Black, making it to the Pro Bowl. Brown, who is widely considered the best right tackle in football, could one day be the best to ever wear this jersey number, he is just not there yet.
As we look at the best Raiders player to ever wear the No. 77, we turn our focus to a man who played the game the Raider Way, and though it was a short stint with the team, it certainly was a memorable one.
