The Oakland Raiders are in the Dogghouse. While visiting the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, Snoop Lion Dogg spoke with Bleacher Report and he didn’t pull any punches when talking about the Raiders.

“Oakland, I don’t know. I hate to say it, but that’s where you go when it’s over with,” Snoop said. “That’s like a retirement home for football players.”

Snoop’s solution? Gin and Juice Changing the stigma. He thinks the Raiders need a new home or venue, and he wasn’t shy about bringing up Los Angeles as an option.

While the legendary rapper is all for flipping the script, he doesn’t think the Raiders need to make a change at quarterback.

“I like Pryor. I wouldn’t get a quarterback,” said the D-O-double-G. “They need to figure out weapons on offense or defense.”

It’s hard to take a rapper’s comments on a professional football franchise too seriously, especially when he’s famous for partaking in certain herbal remedies, but he knows his football. He recently signed on to be the Director of Football Development for ADIDAS, so, you know he’s not just blowing smoke.
