Raiders cornerback David Amerson joined Greg Papa and Bonta Hill on 95.7 The Game on Friday afternoon and discussed the new vibe at the silver and black camp in Napa.

“The expectations are high. I think everybody knows that,” Amerson said. “It's been all over NFL Network or whatever for us to, you know, possibly go all the way. I think we definitely have all the weapons — especially on offense — and defense, we've got pieces too.”

The corner, who's entering his sixth NFL season, knows that the defense will have to step up its level this season.

“I feel like it's really going to come down to us — on our side of the ball — on defense,” Amerson said. “I think everyone knows defense wins championships. So, we're just working to get it as tight as we can because I think there's no doubt our offense is going to do numbers, is going to put up points.”

“If we can keep teams under 17, 14 points, I think it's going to be hard for anyone to beat us.”
