Las Vegas Raiders: 3 former players who still need a team for the 2021 season
Gareon Conley, CB
During the 2017 NFL Draft, the then-Oakland Raiders made Gareon Conley the No. 24 overall selection, picking the talented cornerback out of Ohio State. Conley was supposed to come in and be the best cornerback taken by the Raiders since Nnamdi Asomugha, but instead, he proved to be very ineffective, as injuries took their toll.
After battling through injuries as a rookie, new head coach Jon Gruden named him a starting cornerback in his first season back with the franchise, but that would not last long. By the middle of his third season, Conley was traded away to the Houston Texans, ending a short run that made him another in a long like of missed first-round picks for this organization.
Last year, Conley was on the injured reserve list for most of the season for the Texans, as he did not play in a single game. He is currently a free agent, and based on his age, he should get a chance to latch on somewhere before all is said and done, but I would not expect that to be with the Silver and Black.
