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.

    Love the Adams draft selection..strongly disagree with the Byrd signing..he will cosy more than he’s worth.I say re-sign Woodson and young and draft Deone Bucannon in the sencond rd..kid is a hardhittin playmakingBEAST.

  • Sebastian Cosentino

    The second round selection was taken by Davante Adams.

  • allday

    In your plan yes..in my plan they acquire another 2nd Rd pick..and they take both.

  • 757Raiderfan

    Solid article go raiders

  • Sebastian Cosentino

    How did they acquire a second pick in your plan?

  • John Thomas Hurdle II

    I could win with the current Qb. Mr. McKenzie contact me I show you how if you have not read my last inquiry.

  • John Thomas Hurdle II

    No Qb with the first rd pick. I would trade down get the DE. from Louisville in the second round.

  • allday

    By trading down in the first.Minnesota seems like a likely candidate

  • Raider Grant

    Appreciate part of article that points out how quick we COULD have decent line. If we are able to sign 1-2 solid free agent linemen, I would get Watkins & use QB’s we got. An elite playmaker with a decent line can make QB’s & other receivers better. Thus, we could wait to go all in on Marcus Mariota. If line still suspect prior to draft, I would take best d player available or trade down to get extra second round pick; taking three d/o linemen in first 2 rounds. Go Raiderrrrs
