Oakland Raiders see fallen teammate in flying pigeon

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Some would see the Oakland Raiders' victory over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday as a miracle of sorts. But, if you take Raiders running back Justin Fargas' word for it, there was a miracle of a more spiritual variety in the eyes of many wearing the silver and black.

Speaking with KHTK in Sacramento, Fargas talked about a pigeon that seemed quite interested in joining the Raiders' special teams unit.



"It definitely is. It kind of gives you a different perspective on things," he said. "Yeah it was definitely a strange event seeing that bird flying out there. It seemed comfortable on the football field and comfortable lying down there literally on special teams. It very well could have been Marquis."

Fargas is referring to deceased teammate Marquis Cooper, who died at sea along with two others in March.
