The wide receiver duo of Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams could join elite company in the history of the Oakland Raiders franchise.
Heading into the 2019 NFL season, the Oakland Raiders knew they needed to do something to upgrade their wide receiver group. After trading for Antonio Brown, arguably the best wideout in the NFL, they finally had the kind of WR1 that Derek Carr has been missing for most of his NFL career.
After trading for Brown, the Raiders were not done making moves, bringing in Tyrell Williams and J.J. Nelson via free agency, and then drafting Hunter Renfrow in the 2019 NFL Draft. While Renfrow and Nelson should contribute to the offense in 2019, it is Williams who is slated to be the No. 2 behind Brown this season.
In Brown and Williams, the Raiders have their best wide receiver duo since the 2016, when Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree both went for over 1,000 yards. If the new tandem can complete that task, they will be only the fourth duo in Raiders history to accomplish the feat.
Here are the only three duos to accomplish the feat in Raiders history.
