ALAMEDA, Calif. LaDarius Gunter Jersey . - When George Atkinson IIIs name went uncalled through seven rounds of the NFL draft, there was no doubt where he would end up signing as an undrafted free agent. Despite offers from several teams, Atkinson ultimately signed with the team he was always destined to join, following his famous fathers footsteps to the Oakland Raiders. Now more than a quarter century after George Atkinson Jr. terrorized Lynn Swann and dozens of other NFL wide receivers as a hard-hitting safety with the Raiders, his son is trying to make the team as a backup running back and special teams contributor. "I had to turn a lot of teams down," the younger Atkinson said. "Right out of the gate, they were like, Dont go to the Raiders. I know you want to follow your heart but, weve got a spot for you here. But I know without a doubt this is the spot for me." Father and son knew this was a distinct possibility as the fifth round of the draft ended and no team had called. With two rounds remaining, they believed it might be better if the younger Atkinson wasnt drafted so he could make sure he could sign with the Raiders. While some sons might prefer to blaze their own trail in an organization with no connection to their father, the younger Atkinson had been waiting to put on a Raiders uniform ever since he was a kid. "Ive looked up to this organization and this club for a long time and there was no part of that going on with me," he said. "Ive looked up to my dad and wanted to follow in his footsteps but also lead my own trail at the same time. Youve got to find that balance and thats what Im trying to do right now." The elder Atkinson is a beloved member of the organization for his hard-hitting play that epitomized Oaklands style of play in the 1970s. He had 30 career interceptions and helped Oakland win its first Super Bowl following the 1976 season. He was most famous for his hits on Swann, which led former Steelers coach Chuck Noll to refer to him as part of the "criminal element" in football. He is now a broadcaster for the team but made a point of staying away from rookie minicamp last weekend. "He doesnt need that added pressure," the elder Atkinson said. "Hes learning a new game altogether. The pro ranks are a little bit different from high school and college. He needs time to focus on getting adjusted to the NFL. I dont need to be around. Its his time. I dont want to be a distraction to him and the team." The opportunity to play with the Raiders took out much of the sting of going undrafted after skipping his senior season at Notre Dame. In three years in college, the younger Atkinson rushed for 943 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also returned two kickoffs for scores as a freshman. "Its not all about how you come in, but how you leave," he said. "How you set your mark here in the league. You still have to make a team, drafted or undrafted." Atkinson is part of a crowded group of running backs that includes free-agent acquisition Maurice Jones-Drew, returning starter Darren McFadden and last years sixth-round pick, Latavius Murray. But Oakland is searching for a returner and Atkinson III brings one attribute none of the other players competing for a roster spot have. "I think hes a talented athlete and hes got a lot of speed," coach Dennis Allen said. "He has the ability to help us on special teams also. So, I think anytime a chance to get a legacy, somebody who has the Raider blood lines, ... those guys understand what it means to be a Raider. We were pleased that we were able to bring him in here." NOTES: The Raiders signed seventh-round S Jonathan Dowling and CB T.J. Carrie to four-year contracts. ... Oakland also signed free agent DE Denico Autry and waived DT David Carter. ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Reggie White Jersey .

His team rose to the occasion Sunday with a 3-1 victory over Sweden in the bronze-medal game. "The sting from yesterday is not something we hid from or pretend didnt happen," Dineen said.Leicester Supporters Club chairman Cliff Ginnetta believes the city should pay tribute to Claudio Ranieri following the clubs title success. The Foxes became champions of England on Monday for the first time in their 132 history, starting the season at 5000/1 with the bookmakers, when nearest challengers Tottenham were held to a 2-2 draw with Chelsea.It is also Ranieris first top-flight title and completes an amazing comeback to English football after he was sacked by Greece less than two years ago. A collection of Leicester manager Claudio Ranieris most amusing quotes over the season The Italian returned to English football last summer to take over from Nigel Pearson, 11 years after his exit from Chelsea, and was tipped to be the first manager sacked this season.But Ranieri and Leicester have upset the establishment and Ginnetta wants the widely-travelled manager to get a accolade from the city. A lucky Leicester fan has been selected from thousands to present the trophy to captain Wes Morgan He should be honoured in some way for what hes done, Ginnetta said.I know some people will say hes only doing his job and is getting well paid anyway but we should, in some way, even if we only name a street after him, or even a park. We should do something and I hope we do. Chelsea captain John Terry heaped praise on Premier League Champions Leicester and said credit must go to their manager Claudio Ranieri I was quite pleased when Claudio was appointed, we needed someone with a bit of nous, more tactically aware. Lane Taylor Jersey. Nigel Pearson had Plan A but I dont think there was a Plan B. With Claudio theres a Plan B and Plan C.We needed a foreign manager, they bring so much more to the game than English managers do. I was one of the few and its great to look at these pundits and think what do you really know? Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink praised Leicester for winning the Premier League trophy despite not being amongst the favourites The Foxes have qualified for the Champions League and will be top seeds because they have won the title and Ginnetta believes they will now become one of the countrys biggest clubs.Will we see Leicester carry on being successful? Yes, this is a stepping stone, said Ginnetta, who has been going to the Foxes since 1959.This is our time and for the next few years Leicester will be one of the clubs up there. Im not saying well win it every year but well be up there challenging.
