If the NFL legalizes Stickum, the Raiders will be the first to give it to their players.
Stickum was an adhesive substance used to help skill position players grip the ball. It was banned by the NFL in 1981, in a rule known as the “Lester Hayes Rule” after the Raiders defensive back who lathered himself in the stuff. Other Raiders of the era, like wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff, used it liberally, helping them to win titles in 1976 and 1980.
If the Raiders decide to dunk James Jones in Stickum, he may never be able to get out. But if he does, he’ll be the most dangerous receiver in the NFL. Derek Carr could just throw it at Jones back and the ball will just latch on.
Jones will probably find a way to still drop it though.
