NAPA, Calif. (AP) - Two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Derrick Burgess and first-round pick Darrius Heyward-Bey were no-shows as the Oakland Raiders opened training camp.
The team held meetings Wednesday, the day before hitting the practice field in Napa under coach Tom Cable. Burgess, who did not take part in any offseason practices, decided to stay away from the start of training camp as he looks to be dealt.
Heyward-Bey, the seventh overall pick in April's draft, has not signed a contract, although Cable expressed optimism that a deal could be done quickly.
Heyward-Bey is in the Bay Area and could make it to Napa soon after a deal is signed.
