So, by popular demand, enjoy a third.AJ Cole’s performance in the Raiders’ preseason opener won him the Raiders punting job over incumbent Johnny Townsend. How good of a game was it? Let’s see how his numbers in the game stack up with those of the punters in 2018.Cole averaged 43.0 yards per punt. While that punt average would have been just below thenumbers the man he just beat out for the punting job put up last season (43.2), that was also Cole’s NET average because there were no returns. As a NET average, that would have been tied for the second best in the NFL with 4-time All Pro Johnny Hekker.Two of Cole’s punts were stopped inside the 20. One was fair caught and the other was a brilliant pooch punt that stuck in the turf at the 8-yard-line and bounce back to the 10-yard-line. Averaged over a full season, that would be 32 punts stopped inside the 20. That would be tied for the sixth most in the league with 9-year veteran Britton Colquitt, four-time Pro Bowler Andy Lee, and 6-year veteran Sam Martin.Two of Cole’s punts were fair caught and two were downed. Again https://www.raiderslockerroom.com/authentic-antonio-brown-jersey , that would good for 32 of each over a 16-game season. Both would easily lead the league by a wide margin. 49ers punter Bradley Pinion led the NFL last season with 28 fair catches and Washington punter Tress Wray led the league with 19 downed punts.Yeah, it’s a small sample size. Yeah, it’s a meaningless game. Let’s see if he can keep it going Thursday against the Cardinals.Follow @LeviDamien Deceased Raiders owner Al Davis knew a thing or two about filing lawsuits. Current Raiders receiver Antonio Brown knows a thing or two about being on the wrong end of them.Via TMZ.com, Brown has been sued by a trainer who claims that Brown stiffed the trainer out of more than $7,000 in fees and expenses.Sean Pena claims that he provided Brown with a week of training in April, and that Brown failed to reimburse Pena for therapy and training service, expenses for hotels, airfare Womens Derek Carr Jersey , rental car, and more.Attorney Darren Heitner told TMZ.com that everything has been taken care of.“Mr. Brown has already paid the Plaintiff everything that he was due,” Heitner said. “The Plaintiff has no foundation for coming after Mr. Brown, and we will ensure that this case disposed of quickly.”Pena’s lawyer strenuously objects to that characterization.“Antonio Brown and his attorney have intentionally chosen to ignore Pena’s claim for unpaid trainer services,” Michael D. Kolodzi told TMZ.com. “Indeed, Pena is one of many trainers that Brown has stiffed. It is a repeated pattern of conduct with Brown which assuredly will be brought to the attention of the Court.“To the chagrin of his Florida counsel, Brown will, in fact Antonio Brown Raiders Jersey , have to personally appear in an Alameda County Court and argue his defense of this case. There are no attorneys allowed in small claims in California.“Thus, his attorney has no power or ability to ‘ensure that this case is disposed of quickly.’ Such a statement is without merit, completely nonsensical, and demonstrates a profound lack of knowledge of California jurispridence.”Earlier this year, Brown settled a lawsuit arising from allegations that he threw furniture from a fourteenth-story apartment in Miami — furniture that nearly hit a young child and his grandfather.
