Raiders First-Round Pick Gareon Conley Feels First Day on Practice Field a Success

Raiders first-round pick and former Ohio State standout cornerback Gareon Conley was back on a football field, something he views as a “stress reliever” with all he’s experienced in the past month, Jimmy Durkin of Bayareanewsgroup reports.

When Conley met with the media following the first day of the Raiders’ rookie mini camp, it was far from his most important meeting of the week. That came Monday when he was in Cleveland to offer a statement to police who are looking into an April 9 allegation of rape levied against Conley.

“I felt like it went good,” Conley said. “There’s not more to say about that. We’ll just find out what happens after this.”

According to a report from NFL Network, Conley’s attorney Kevin Spellacy said he expects a time frame of 6-8 weeks while Cuyahoga County prosecutors review the case, although Conley said Friday he wasn’t aware of any such time frame.

Conley has been adamant from the beginning that his name will ultimately get cleared in the case and called the meeting with police “another way to prove my innocence.”

In the mean time, he said it’s tough to deal with having his name linger out there publicly with this accusation.

“It’s tough to think about it,” Conley said, “but I try not to think about it and just worry about what I’m doing out here.”
