News for November 5 posted the following Q & A with Tim Dwight:

Q: How do you feel to be the newest member to the Silver and Black?

Tim Dwight: Itís a team that I have battled against before in my career but its good to be a Raider. Just being here the last three days, you start to understand that there is something special about the team. Starting with the owner and coming all the way down to the guys who work the equipment room, itís neat to have that type of pride.

Q: So will there be an extra special feeling when you pull that jersey over your head for the first time come Sunday?

Tim Dwight: Yeah, itís going to be fun out there. Just getting back to playing in this league with the group of guys Iíve been around for the past three days. They want things to move in the right direction even though the record doesnít reflect that. We have put in a really hard three days and we'll see if we can put it all on the field together on Sunday.

Q: For you personally, what are you going to try to do on the field Sunday?

Tim Dwight: I am a guy who likes to do things right and just being in the system for three days is a challenge to go out there and be perfect all the time. Thatís what I think every player strives for, to be perfect on all your assignments. I am just going to try to keep relaxed and let the game come to me. We will see what happens.

Q: Can you recall your strongest memory of the Raiders before you joined the team?

Tim Dwight: I played the Raiders a couple times when I was with the San Diego Chargers. The games were always tough battles. I remember the Chargers had a great game in 2002 in Oakland. It went into overtime and we won. Later in the season, they came back down to San Diego and beat us bad on their way to the Super Bowl. Thinking about the game I played here was a great game, one of the best games I played in.
