Bruce Irvin is excited about signing his new four-year contract with the Raiders. He’ll do so on Thursday, as will fellow free-agent acquisitions guard/tackle Kelechi Osemele and cornerback Sean Smith.
Irvin is excited about those additions, but he wants more.
He took to Twitter on Thursday morning and applied some peer pressure on Chargers free safety Eric Weddle to join the Raiders movement.
