The Las Vegas Raiders are in a solid salary cap situation entering the new league year, but they could be in even better position if these four surprise cuts happen.
The Raiders currently hold over $60 million in cap space for 2020, but with these four cuts, the Raiders would have over $84 million going into free agency. Sure, some of these four played huge roles on the team in 2019, but as the team moves to Sin City, changes are coming.
As the Raiders head into Las Vegas, they will surely have a much different group of players than they did this previous season. The Raiders made plenty of changes in the 2019 off-season, and 2020 should be no different, as we saw solid improvement with this team, going from four to seven wins.
With a 7-9 record, the Raiders were an average team that surpassed most people’s expectations, but the frustrating part is that the team could have been even better. After starting out at 6-4, the Raiders lost five of their last six games, and saw their playoff hopes end in Week 17 of the regular season.
Let’s take a look at four surprising cuts that could help the Raiders in the long run.
