Sports business analyst Darren Rovell tweeted out this image of what he claims is the new Oakland Raiders mascot, the Raider Rusher.
He soon followed up with a tweet claiming that it will be a character on the Nickelodeon series NFL Rush Zone.
So just what exactly are we looking at? If Rovell is to be believed—and he is not one to deliberately hoax fans—then this is a real mascot created for the purpose of a television show. It appears that the Raider Rusher will not be a staple on Oakland sidelines.
Sorry, Raiders fans.
