The Las Vegas Raiders still have a number of needs to fill this offseason and here are the best free agents left as of March 17th.
We are only three days in o the legal tampering period of NFL free agency and the Las Vegas Raiders offseason has been a whirlwind already. The Raiders have now traded and released, or plan to release, four of their five starters on the offensive line from Week 1 of the 2020 season.
Raider Nation thought the release of RG Gabe Jackson was a surprise, but they were in for the shock of their lives when it was announced yesterday that All-Pro center Rodney Hudson was going to be released as well. Rumors began to fly that Hudson would retire shortly after the move while other reports came out that he was unhappy and asked to be released.
Hudson was reportedly tired of losing and was looking to move to a winning organization.
There is no real way to rationalize the decision to release the best player on the team and one of the best in the NFL but if the deal is done then we can move our focus to the rest of the roster and the needs that must be filled. To fill those needs, the Raiders can utilize the draft or free agency and several high-level free agents can help fill those needs.
First up is a familiar face from an AFC West foe.
