From the huddle to the pulpit back to the locker room.
On Friday, ESPN's Paul Gutierrez reported that former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham has joined the Las Vegas Raiders to serve as their chaplain.
Cunningham is no stranger to the region. He played his college ball at UNLV before he became a household name with the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1980s and 1990s. The signal-caller who won Pro Football Writers of America Most Valuable Player honors in 1990 also played for the Minnesota Vikings, Dallas Cowboys, and Baltimore Ravens.
Following his playing days, Cunningham became a pastor. He's the current head of Remnant Ministries located in Las Vegas.
Cunningham told ESPN that he's already spoken with multiple players via Zoom meetings. The 57-year-old also explained that Raiders head coach Jon Gruden invited him to accept the gig.
"I have a responsibility to look after these guys in this town," Cunningham told ESPN. "And I accept that responsibility."
