LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Rookie center Stefen Wisniewski is trying to learn the Oakland Raiders' offense without a playbook.
And if that's not bizarre enough, the second-round draft pick from Penn State spent a couple of hours Thursday working with teammates at an indoor pool in suburban Atlanta. Defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who lives in the metropolitan area, organized the mini-camp.
If not for the NFL lockout, Wisniewski would likely be working at the Raiders' team headquarters in Alameda, Calif. — alongside his uncle, assistant offensive line coach Steve Wisniewski. Now Stefan Wisniewski isn't even allowed to talk to him.
About 25 players participated in the pool session, which was designed as a cross-training recovery workout after two days on the field and in the weight room.
