Oakland Raiders to Look at For Next Year

Every time Brice Butler gets an opportunity, he makes a play whether it be a 3rd-down conversion or a touchdown. And his reward is always less playing time while Kenbrell Thomkins and Vincent Brown take the reps that Butler has earned. Yet Butler has displayed the ability to run after the catch, make plays on deep balls and make score in the red zone.
The last time I checked, those were the traits of a No. 1 receiver but he’s the last man on the totem pole. The 5-star college recruit would have been a star out of college if Lane Kiffin wouldn’t have robbed him wen he got to USC. It would be nice to see what he could do now instead of the Raiders robbing him then letting him be a star on another team.
