Raiders assistant trainer saves woman from sinking car (Shutdown Corner)
NFL people do all sorts of things during the one time of the year when there's actual time off -- the five-week period between the end of mandatory minicamps and the start of training camps in late July. Many will go on vacations with their families, while most rookies will stick around the facilities of their new teams and try to get a jump on the playbooks.
Then again, you could do what Oakland Raiders assistant athletic trainer Chris Cortez did, and save a Bay Area woman from a sinking car! This happened last Saturday, as Cortez, his wife, and neighbor Taryn Griffin were driving past the Oakland estuary and saw a car starting to sink. Cortez gave all his stuff to his wife, and he and Griffin went into the "stinky water."
