It’s a 49ers-Raiders reunion in Santa Clara. The Raiders will play their sole game back in the Bay this season — which the organization left for Las Vegas — on Sunday, and it won’t just be for the fans. The 49ers have two very recent former Raiders on the roster who are just as anxious to get some recompense in the currently-sidelined Maurice Hurst and Arden Key, both waived by Las Vegas and picked up by the 49ers this offseason.
Key ripped the Raiders earlier in training camp, saying that he felt relieved to be waived by Las Vegas, along with Hurst. He said he was angling to get out of the organization and that he was stuck in a bad scheme. The difference with the 49ers, he said, has been “night and day.”
On Sunday morning, Key took to Instagram, posting a pot shot at Raiders head coach Jon Gruden, posting a photo of Chucky — Gruden’s nickname — saying, “Chucky Boyyy, I’m coming for youuuuuuu.”
