This offseason is going to an instrumental part in the rebuilding process of the Oakland Raiders. Reggie McKenzie has done a fantastic job in shedding dead salary the past two years by cutting under achieving players and stocking the roster with cheap, cost affordable players that are looking for a chance, or second chance.
Reggie has taken down the pile of problems that was there when he currently arrived and the time has finally arrived for him to start building the team the way he likes.
Coming from Green Bay, he knows that championship teams are built through the draft and he already has some nice steals from the draft the past two years (Mychal Rivera, Sio Moore), but free-agency has allowed teams to rapidly speed of the turnaround process of a team; if done correctly.
That was the issue with the late Al Davis, he thought he could fix the Raiders by just throwing bags of money at players without caring about the long term side effects. Combine that with more misses in the draft than anyone would like to admit and you have a franchise in desperate need of a savior. Reggie will prove if he’s that guy this offseason and here are some moves that he might be exploring through draft and free-agency to help prove to Raider Nation that he is the guy.
