James Trapp used to prey on people. Now he prays for them. The thug has turned thankful, touched by the Holy Spirit, he says, and is ready to start his new life as a Christian advisor for an NFL team. He has been serving an internship with the Atlanta Falcons and could eventually be promoted to team chaplain. This is the same James Trapp who, as a Los Angeles Raiders defensive back, came off the sidelines at Denver and joined in an on-field brawl -- while in street clothes.

Back when he was patrolling the trenches for the Oakland Raiders, Chester McGlockton was among the NFL's most intimidating defensive linemen. He also went half-speed far too much, showed up at team meetings at his leisure, and once, on a chilly afternoon in 1997, refused to shed his full-length coat as he lazily jogged through drills at practice. Hello, Jon Gruden. So long, Chester. Then there was Jeff George. Just about any pro quarterback would give his left arm for George's right one.

Police were involved in two incidents at the Coliseum Sunday--handcuffing a Raider who participated in a fight that broke out among Raider and Denver Bronco players and arresting a paraglider who threatened to disrupt the game. James Trapp, a Raider rookie cornerback who is not on the active roster because of a groin injury, was in street clothes on the sidelines when the second-quarter fight broke out.

Having lost Ronnie Lott, the Raiders selected safety Patrick Bates of Texas A&M in the first round of Sunday's draft.

Rookie cornerback James Trapp was fined $7,500 by the NFL Thursday for fighting against the Denver Broncos while in street clothes last Sunday. Trapp was inactive for the game but was in the bench area when fighting broke out in the second quarter. He quickly joined the fray. The $7,500 fine equals what Trapp would have received for the game.
