News on the menu
This week’s episode of The Only Nation Podcast starts off with the usual mix of current league and Raiders news. The NFL has announced that the 2021 regular-season schedule will move to 17 games. The format since 1977 had been 16 games but this year, the Raiders’ extra game will be at home against the Chicago Bears.
Left tackle Kolton Miller got a contract extension to secure the pocket protector until at least 2025. In unsurprising news, cornerback Nevin Lawson will be starting the season on the league’s suspended list. This is his third suspension at the start of the year in as many seasons.
The new Raiders Tavern and Grill opened in Las Vegas. It features over 3,400 square feet of dining space, two bars, more than 45 high-definition TV screens, and is expected to operate nearly around the clock. In final news, the Raiders re-signed safety Karl Joseph who spent last year with the Cleveland Browns.

Trent Sieg then joins us to discuss what it is like being a Raider. He talks about the relationship of the players in the kicking battery and what it is like playing on the offensive line as a special teamer. He also elaborates on the “next man up” mentality in the NFL. Not to be forgotten in the current state of world affairs, we also ask him about the greatest challenges playing during the pandemic. Finally, we wrap up the interview with a discussion of what he has been up to recently off the field.
