The Las Vegas Raiders go into the 2021 season looking to finally punch their ticket to the playoffs, and these three players will be key to do so.
The Las Vegas Raiders have spent considerable time on and off the field this offseason, and buzz around the team is that they are ready to compete. Early in the offseason, the team leaders came together with the team and made the unanimous decision to forego the voluntary workouts with the decision to train on their own.
However, when the season started, it was reported by Tashan Reed of The Athletic that there were nearly 85 players on the team in attendance. The Raiders opting into camp shows that there is work to be done, and the team is ready to do the work necessary to improve upon two back-to-back seasons where they had mid-season slides that knocked them out of the playoffs.
The Raiders have improved in the win column each season since Jon Gruden returned to the sidelines, but there is still a ton of work to be done. They have revamped the offensive line, made significant upgrades to the defense, and there is still the question as to who will step up at the wide receiver position.
As the team prepares to kick off their training camp later this week, getting ready for the season and a hopeful return to the playoffs, we take a look at early predictions for top team honors.
