Raiders Safety Johnathan Abram Joins the Roundtable! | The Lefkoe Show
- Published: 10 October 2019
- Raiders rookie safety Johnathan Abram joins Brian Westbrook and Lefkoe at the fidget spinner-shaped roundtable for a discussion that hits everything from the Khalil Mack trade to Jon Gruden's crazy obsessions to the hardest hitters Abram idolized as a kid. He's one of the most passionate, knowledgeable young players in the game, and certainly (we think) a future star in the NFL. Listen to him now so you can say you "knew him when" before he starts racking up Pro Bowls.
