The Las Vegas Raiders have some big decisions to make at the wide receiver position this offseason, as they have to decide how hard they want to pursue Nelson Agholor, and if they want to bring back Tyrell Williams at his current salary. Agholor became the number one receiver in Las Vegas this season despite being signed originally as a backup to Williams and rookie Bryan Edwards.
There have been rumors about what the Raiders are willing to pay Agholor, but he is currently testing the open market after having a career-year in 2020. He would be the cleanest and easiest fit of the free agent wide receivers, but we will not discuss him as a potential option because we know what he brings to the table.
Williams could soon be a free agent, as he is due $11 million in 2021, but the Raiders could release him without a cap penalty and all signs point to them doing so because of his inability to stay healthy. He also won’t be discussed as a potential option here because he is still technically a Raider and could even return on a reduced deal.
The Raiders spent two picks in the top three rounds on wide receivers and could choose to roll with Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards, but if they want to keep getting the best out of Derek Carr, they will need to spend some money to bolster the position.
Here are ten free-agent wide receivers that the Raiders need to at least kick the tires on and gauge their interest in coming to Las Vegas.
