With the season over, a lot of National Football League players are preparing to enjoy the Super Bowl or taking time to spend with their families before training camp begins again.

During his time, according to the Raiders’ website, Tavecchio met with Luciano Spalletti and club vice president Javier Zanetti. He also picked up a personalized jersey during the trip.
The 27-year-old Milan native went to college at the University of California at Berkeley after graduating from Campolindo High School in Moraga, Calif.
Last season he was 16-of-21 for field goals, with his longest being a 53-yard-attempt. He was 33-of-34 on extra points and averaged 63.4 yards per kickoff. He joined the Raiders after regular kicker Sebastian Janikowski suffered a back injury that forced him to the injured reserve list.
In a 26-16 win over the Tennessee Titans, Tavecchio became the first NFL player to kick a pair of 50+ yard field goals in his debut.
Hey, if nothing else, perhaps he has some foot skills that could be used in Spalletti’s midfield, or even in attack. Just a thought.
