Carl Nassib likes everything about his new home in Las Vegas except for being behind the wheel.

“I have to drive like Vin Diesel in `Fast and Furious’ to stay alive,” the Raiders defensive end said Thursday via Zoom teleconference. “Craziest drivers I’ve ever seen in my life.”

If Nassib can drive like he plays football, he won’t lack for effort. Nassib knows only one speed, so assume he’ll be cutting across lanes of traffic on two wheels if that’s what it takes to reach his destination.

It’s that quality that drew the Raiders to Nassib during free agency, as they shelled out a reported guarantee of $17 million in a three-year contract worth a maximum value of $25 million.

Well, that plus the fact that he’s 6-foot-7 and 275 pounds.

“I’m really excited to be playing the position I feel like I’m meant to play, being a 4-3 D-end,” Nassib said. “I have my hand in the dirt I had to make a lot of adjustments going to outside linebacker.”
