"It's good to see people call us and not always have to beg," McKenzie told the Bay Area News Group's Jerry McDonald Saturday night. "I think people can see what we're doing. I think our players, they're showing on the field, and players talk to each other. We had a handful of guys play in the Pro Bowl. It's a strong fraternity within the NFL. Guys interact."
"You look at what's happening in free agency right now, guys wanting to come here and play," recently retired Raiders legend Charles Woodson said Saturday night. "You've got to feel good about the direction. Mark Davis, Reggie, along with Jack (Del Rio), they're working together to make sure this organization is what it used to be and have the respect it used to have. It's going to be fun to watch them."
