The Las Vegas Raiders have fans throughout the entire country and the world including their former hometown of Oakland.

With the selection of Tom Flores and Charles Woodson to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, the City of Oakland decided to honor them by placing a couple of billboards by the I-880 corridor.

The billboards are located near the Raiders' former home, the Oakland Coliseum.

This was actually a very interesting Hall of Fame class for the Raiders as Flores finally joined the greats in Canton after 22 years of eligibility, with a little help from Coors Light.

Meanwhile, Woodson was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.

Either way, both played the majority of their careers in Oakland and are known as Raiders.

Woodson made four Pro Bowls during his career and was All-Pro twice.

Nowadays Woodson is running his winery in Napa, Calif.

Napa is also where the Raiders typically hold their training camps during non-COVID years.

The city of Oakland hasn’t forgotten about their Raiders and nor should Raider Nation.

As the saying goes, Once a Raider, Always a Raider.
