4 notable Raiders who could be entering their last season in Las Vegas
Johnathan Hankins, DT
On a defense that has had plenty of issues across the last few seasons, defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins has been as consistent a player as the Raiders have had on that side of the ball. The big fella will once again be a starter for the Raiders at defensive tackle in 2021 and will be expected to lead a group with a ton of question marks.
However, Hankins has played so well that he could be in line for a big contract after the 2021 campaign, and Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden may not be willing to commit long-term to him. They took fliers on a bunch of players this offseason and could have a rising star in Darius Stills, so though he has been solid for the Raiders, Hankins could price himself out.
The Las Vegas Raiders added talent to the defensive side of the ball, but was it enough for first-year defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.
These are four guys who have carved out roles with the franchise, and all four of them will likely have no problem finding a job after the 2021 NFL season. The Raiders have made some interesting moves in terms of the salary cap in recent years, and some of these guys could be brought back but we will have to wait and see what happens next offseason.
