Countdown to 2020: Best Raiders player to wear No. 64 all-time
By Brad Weiss
With 64 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. 64.
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. 64.
Currently, the Raiders have a player wearing the No. 64 who is downright dominant at his position, and returned to the NFL in a big way in 2019. Richie Incognito was out of football for the 2018 NFL season, and had to sit out the first four games of the year, but once he entered the lineup, he went back to playing at a Pro Bowl level.
The team saw enough in Incognito that they decided to bring him back for two more years, as he signed a brand new two-year deal with the franchise. He joins an offensive line that should be one of the best in football this season, thanks to the fact all five starters return, and they have more depth behind them than a year ago.
However, the best Raiders player to wear the No. 64 wore it back in the 1970s, playing the same position as Incognito.
