Raiders punter Shane Lechler, who joined the team in 2000 along with kicker Sebastian Janikowski, had a locker next to Gannon.
"He kind of broke Sebastian and I into the league,."
Lechler said. "He told us the ins and outs."
Gannon had a leadership quality that could be a little
slashing but also took the team to greater heights.
"Rich could see a guy's potential and wanted him to
see it as well," Lechler said. "He may have ruffled a
few feathers but he got the job done."
-- The Raiders held a controlled scrimmage Saturday
and will have Sunday off.
-- Wide receivers Doug Gabriel (dislocated index
finger) and Lashaun Ward (groin) are the most recent
additions to the injury list.
