Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels took to the podium for the last time prior to the team’s season opener against the Chargers. His first order of business? Naming the 2022 team captains.

McDaniels was generous with his team captains too, naming eight of them — three on offense, three on defense, and two on special teams

Offense:

QB Derek Carr
WR Davante Adams
T Kolton Miller

Defense:

LB Denzel Perryman
DE Maxx Crosby
S Duron Harmon

Special Teams:

P AJ Cole
WR Mack Hollins

The somewhat surprising players among the team captains are Duron Harmon and Mack Hollins.

Harmon may not even start at safety, with Johnathan Abram and Tre’von Moehrig starting there. And Hollins gets the nod as a kick coverage and blocking specialist.

All the others make perfect sense.

This is Miller’s first time as team captain. Last season the offensive lineman Jon Gruden named as team captain was Richie Incognito who didn’t end up playing a single game due to a calf injury.

Derek Carr and Maxx Crosby are the only captains from last season who return as captains this season.

Josh Jacobs and Darren Waller were team captains last season as well and neither are team captains this time around.
