Former Raiders great Cliff Branch has died.
The wide receiver was known for his blazing speed, a trait that Al Davis cherished in his skilled players.
Branch was a part of the three Raiders teams that won Super Bowls.
He played 14 seasons, retiring after the 1985 season.
He still holds the team record for longest touchdown catch -- a 99 yard bomb from Jim Plunkett against the Washington Redskins in 1983.
He was selected to the pro bowl four times.
Branch was 71 years old.
