With 90 days until the opener of the 2020 NFL season, we start the count down with the best Raiders player at every jersey number. Today we focus on No. 90.
With the season just three months away, we here at Just Blog Baby are taking a look at the best Raiders player to wear the jersey number of the number of days left before the opener on September 13, 2020 against the Carolina Panthers. That game will kick off the new era of Raiders football.
We continue our series with the No. 90.
The Las Vegas Raiders have a current player on the roster in Johnathan Hankins who could take on the mantle of the best No. 90 in team history if he plays well in 2020 and sticks around for a few more years. Hankins joined the the organization from the Indianapolis Colts in 2018 and has been solid but unspectacular since.
The other two candidates for this honor are Desmond Bryant who had 10.5 sacks in four years with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent from 2009-12. The other is Mike Wise, who spent four years with the Los Angeles Raiders in the late 1980s, but had an acrimonious departure from the team, and tragically took his own life shortly in 1992.
The somewhat clear winner is a mountain of a man who played for six teams over 15 years but started his career with the Oakland Raiders.
