The Oakland Raiders have 33 pending free agents heading into next season, and here are five that should be back with the team in 2019.
The Oakland Raiders will head into the offseason with a lot of work to do, as they current hold six of the first 100 selections in the 2019 NFL Draft. In addition, they have 33 players who are entering free agency, which means new general manager Mike Mayock will have his work cut out for him in year one.
While Mayock should be able to tackle the draft, as he is a former draft analyst, free agency could be tough for him this offseason. Of course, all personnel decisions are going to run through head coach Jon Gruden, who was given $100 million to come out of the booth and get back on the sidelines last year.
With so many players entering free agency, there is no way the Raiders are going to be able to bring them all back, or want to bring them all back. We look at those players they should focus on in this piece, and list the five guys that can help this team in 2019 and beyond.
Here are five pending free agents that should be back.
