The Las Vegas Raiders have revamped their roster once again, and here, we take a look at the three best moves they made to improve for the 2021 season.
It has been another crazy offseason for the Las Vegas Raiders, as they look to finally put the final pieces to the puzzle together for a possible playoff run. They have had to bring in new talent on both sides of the ball, and while it is early, hopefully the returns will be positive.
We have looked at some underrated moves so far, but now, let us look at the best moves they made this offseason.
Las Vegas Raiders: 3 best moves made during the 2021 offseason
Raiders trade up for Trevon Moehrig
Heading into the 2021 NFL Draft, the Las Vegas Raiders knew they had to improve in the defensive backfield. This was an area of real need going into the offseason, and while bringing Karl Joseph back was a strong move, trading up for TCU safety Trevon Moehrig could be a move that really moves the position group in the right direction.
During his time with TCU, Moehrig developed a reputation of being someone who can take away one half of the field, and the Raiders need that kind of player. Now, with 2019 first rounder Johnathan Abram and Moehrig in the two starting spots, with KuJo coming off the bench, the safety spot is in a much better situation.
Finally, Gus Bradley is a specialist when it comes to the secondary, so this is a group that could end up going from a real weakness to a strength in 2021.
