If you’re a Bay Area native or a Raiders fan, the name Giorgio Tavecchio is one you’re pretty familiar with. The Italian born kicker played at Cal four seasons from 2008 to 2011. A couple years after that, he had spent every offseason the past four years with the Raiders.
Tavecchio’s first time with the Raiders, he spent a grand total of four days on the team. They signed him for the final preseason game, he went 3 for 3 in the game and waived him the day after the game.
Little did Tavecchio know at the time, but that would be the start of a long back-and-forth relationship with the club.
He was their first signing of 2015 on February 24 and this time would spend the entire offseason, training camp, and preseason with the team. That would be the case again in 2016 and this previous offseason as well.
