DENVER — The Raiders are getting a new superstar halfback named Bo Jackson this week, but times being what they are, you have to ask, which Raider squad? The one in or the one out?
Jackson intends to report to the team's El Segundo facility Thursday, take a physical and thus earn his $500,000 reporting bonus.
Then he says he will trip back over the line and join the striking players for their practices.
There were reports Monday, originating from a Birmingham (Ala.) Post-Herald story, that quoted Jackson as saying he would actually play for the strikebreaking team. However, a spokesperson for Jackson said he was denying that vehemently.
"He is not going to cross the picket line," said the spokesperson, an associate of Jackson's agent, Richard Woods, who asked not to be identified.
