Ex-Raiders lineman hopeful LA will get NFL team

Former defensive lineman Nolan Harrison, who once played for the

Raiders, believes Los Angeles will regain an NFL franchise.

Harrison said Friday that league officials won’t want to pass up

an opportunity to have a team in Los Angeles because it could

generate huge revenues.

Harrison, who also spent time with the Steelers and Redskins,

spoke to hundreds of Los Angeles County workers at an annual

breakfast honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

He called upon the crowd to support the players’ efforts to

receive better benefits. The league’s collective bargaining

agreement expires in seven weeks and no formal bargaining meetings

have been scheduled.
