“This is something that we kinda came up with over time just inside our personnel and scouting department,” Holmes said on GMFB. “It’s just about what we’re all about, what we’re trying to find in the draft and the guys that fit our culture. I can’t give out too much, but it’s something that’s within our building and then it’s on our walls. It’s something that we believe in.”

One Comment

  1. Personally, I liked ‘GRIT’ and don’t like ‘Villain’. This seems to convey old school Raiders culture—dirty play, etc. I assume that’s not what they’re going for.
