    Warren Wells, a WR whose best days were with the Raiders from 1967-70, died of congestive heart failure on 12/27. He was 76.

    Wells was an outstanding WR until he was suspended before the 1971 after running afoul of the law. He attempted a comeback with Oakland afterwards, but didn't succeed.

    Before his time with Oakland, Wells played with the Lions in 1964.
