Star running back Josh Jacobs only played one season as a member of the Oakland Raiders. The former Alabama star was also just 13 years old when legendary former Raiders owner Al Davis passed away back in 2011.
Despite this, the talented back is paying homage to both Davis and the city of Oakland during his team’s first home game as the Las Vegas Raiders. Check out these cleats he’s wearing for “Monday Night Football” against the New Orleans Saints.
Jacobs pulled out all of the stops with these cleats. Oakland. Las Vegas. Al Davis. You can’t get much more awesome than that. On a related note, whoever designed these cleats has some awesome artistic ability.
The Raiders’ trek from Northern California to Las Vegas has not been without hiccups. That’s primarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, they are one of just a handful of teams to announce that they will not host fans throughout the 2020 NFL season.
That won’t change the scene too much right off the Vegas strip Monday evening.
Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas is ready
The Killers are set to perform
The new Black Hole is already doing its thing outside of the stadium
Despite no fans being in attendance, the Raiders’ first game in Las Vegas promises to bring about a festive environment. That’s for sure.
