Good thing Peyton took Tripucka’s number

Raiders eyeing long-snapper

Travis Tripucka just Tweeted that he is headed to Oakland, presumably for a workout as a potential replacement for injured long-snapper Jon Condo.
“Oakland California, here I come!” Tripucka said in a Tweet. “Another opportunity. Couldn’t be happier! Raider Nation better be ready for the lunchmeat.”

Frank Tripucka's number 18 was one of only three retired by the Broncos (along with John Elway's 7 and Floyd Little's 44), before he graciously allowed the team to unretire it for Peyton Manning's use in March. Surely this was accompanied by a promise to re-retire the number whenever Peyton's time in Denver is up.

But the Broncos may want to consider not giving it back.

After all, Oakland's new long snapper is Frank's grandson, Travis. Imagine if the kid ends up snapping the kick that...never mind. This is just wrong on so many levels.
