Jason Verrett WAS a hardcore Raiders fan... out of your system now?



It is true that football players going into the league were fans of the game growing up and they likely were fans of some team growing up. Chargers new draft selection, Jason Verrett, was a hardcore Oakland Raiders fan as he grew up. He used to go to the games all the time and I am sure that he wasn’t much of a fan of the San Diego Chargers.

Just look at the pics from back in the day:

On Sundays, Verrett will be a hardcore Chargers fan. Don’t let Chargers fans catch him in Raiders gear from this point forward or he might get some hot fire spit in his direction. Keenan Allen felt the wrath go toward him last season.

He is a San Diego Charger and he will be looking to make some plays against his former favorite team. He has a new favorite team now.

    Yaaaaaa I don’t like that

  • superboltsfan

    He must be reconditioned

  • esco charger

    I hope this guy proves me wrong

    • jordan

      Lets hope so I don’t think its a good thing to be forced to like a player

  • Cgoodness13

    It will probably only make him play better against the Raiders

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      that is true

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        or he will sit in awe that he is playing against his favorite team

        • Gunnar Martin

          KA sure didn’t do that. Man, he played great against them.

  • Edward Sherman

    Oh man no he better switch couldd any of us stop being bolt fans if drafted by the Faiders

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      nope.. .that doesnt help him

  • Will

    This is BS. Wearing a beanie and growing up in Fairfield doesn’t automatically make u a die hard raider fan. He said back in April if he could control things he’d want to be a charger. After they chargers called yesterday, he said his heart dropped because he always wanted to be a San Diego charger. During the offseason after TCU’s season ended, he lived right near qualcomm. He’s a chargers fan. Not a raiders fan.

  • Nick in PB

    Is that his GF. The one currently going to SDSU? If so, I expect to see a picture of him and her wearing Charger beanies sooner than later!

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      hahah.. right

    • FitzWilly

      lol bolt-beanie :)

  • Derek

    w/e he has a job to do he is nolonger a fan like us. he was employed to make plays on defense. id love to hear him apologize but i expect him to embarrass shuab and the raider nation sending him to the bench 6 point style.

  • Rafael Solorzano

    Who would known!

  • Pels04

    If he didnt want to be a Charger you wouldve been able to tell from his reaction to being drafted by them. Im not worried, you could tell he was stoked.

  • 21serg

    U guys why do people make a big deal out of little things like this cmon if the Raiders drafted u but your chargers fan before your still going to go out and play your ass off this is his job now damm people open your minds up a little

  • ECAVILLE/Ace of Spades

    Can’t blame him for being a fan of another team. He is now employed by the CHARGERS and so begins a new era for him. Dreams come true in San Diego. His have been answered. GO BOLTS! WELCOME HOME JASON!!!

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Anyone else notice him doing the I think I’m a bad ass nose flare like 5 times right when the pick was made? lol haven’t seen anyone do that in along ass time lol.

  • MachoMenos

    And two years in a row where our picks will outperform better than the faiders picks…LMFAOSHMSFOAIDMT!

  • Gunnar Martin

    The way he was grinning giddily and talking enthusiastically about coming to San Diego makes me doubt he was a DIE HARD fan. Maybe one of those casual fans that just get accustomed to the team since they live in the area, but definitely doesn’t seem like a die hard. Not a big deal.
