Joey Iosefa returned to Honolulu this morning with one thing on his mind:
“It’s time to go back to work,” Iosefa said.
Iosefa left nearly three weeks ago to participate in UH’s pro day in San Diego. The Cincinnati Bengals sent three representatives, including running back coach Kyle Caskey, to personally work out Iosefa. The Green Bay Packers also praised Iosefa’s pro-day workout.
That evening, Iosefa and agent Aaron Gordon had dinner with an official from the Kansas City Chiefs. Gordon has three friends in the organization.
Iosefa remained in Los Angeles to be with his sister, who recently gave birth to a girl.
Yesterday, Iosefa was invited to what essentially was a day-long interview with the Oakland Raiders. Iosefa reviewed videos and football strategies with running backs coach Bernie Parmalee. He also met with general manager Reggie McKenzie.
The Raiders, Bengals, Chiefs, Packers and Seattle Seahawks have shown the most interest in Iosefa.
For now, Iosefa said, “I’m going to keep working.”
