It's clear that Al Davis made a lasting impact on those he lived and worked with, even when the connection was brief.
"I didn't know the guy that long, but just from talking to him and how passionate he is, it is amazing just talking to him on the phone. ... You just get a buzz and butterflies in your stomach because he just talks ... about winning. He's so passionate about the game and so passionate about Oakland. It just amazed me and my heart goes out to his family and he was a great guy."
"In a way, it hurts me," he said. "I know I should be on the field helping them guys for the mistakes that I have made, but, you know, I'm not perfect. No one is perfect."
Davis will never get to watch his investment take the field, but Pryor's existence on the Raiders stands as one final signature move from the former owner who relished cutting against the grain.
