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.
