Randall Cunningham never played for the Raiders during his time as an NFL quarterback, but he has joined the organization ahead of their first season in Las Vegas.

Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports that Cunningham will be the team’s chaplain. Cunningham went to UNLV and became a minister in the city after his playing career came to an end.

Cunningham called himself “flabbergasted” about the opportunity to work with the team.

“What a great group of people Mark Davis and Jon Gruden have put together,” Cunningham said. “I have a responsibility to look after these guys in this town and I accept that responsibility.”

Former Raiders running back Napoleon Kaufman had served as the team’s chaplain before their move from Oakland to Las Vegas.

  1. Pretty cool to see Cunningham working in the league again. Tough act to follow with Nap Kaufman.
    Although whenever I heard “flabbergasted”, I think of Tiki Barber.

  2. A great guy and a great player. Hopefully he can help keep our guys away from the Sin in Sin City!

  3. The Raiders need all the prayers they can get!
