Las Vegas Raiders continue to solidify roster before 2020 Draft

The Las Vegas Raiders signed a few of their own free agents on Thursday, including kicker Daniel Carlson and quarterback Nathan Peterman.

As they inch closer to the 2020 NFL Draft, the Las Vegas Raiders are doing some housekeeping, as they agreed to terms with a bunch of pending free agents on Thursday. The hope is that general manager Mike Mayock can continue to move this team in the right direction, as they look to make the playoffs in their first season in Sin City.

Restricted free agents that signed their deals on Thursday were all on the offensive side of the ball, and that included quarterback Nathan Peterman. According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Peterman signed for $2.133 million, as did offensive linemen David Sharpe, who will provide depth along an offensive line that should be set going into the draft.

Peterman returns to a quarterback room that is improved from last year, as they added Marcus Mariota to the fold in free agency. DeShone Kizer was brought over during the 2019 season, and with Peterson, the position group should now be set heading into Thursday.

Sharpe started two games for Raiders last season, as he appeared in nine games, and comes back at a very team-friendly price tag.

In terms of ERFAs, the Raiders agreed to terms with kicker Daniel Carlson, who will likely battle it out for the job after an up and down year in 2019. In addition, Dallin Leavitt and D.J. Killings also will be back with the team this offseason.

The only ERFA who remains unsigned is wide receiver Keelan Doss.

The Raiders hold five of the first 91 selections in the 2020 NFL Draft heading into Thursday, though it is anybody’s guess as to where they actually end up drafting. There are still needs on both sides of the ball, and with two first round picks, you can expect this roster to be ready to go heading into the summer.
