The Las Vegas Raiders have a lot of work to do in terms of the roster this summer, and here are three under-the-radar players to keep an eye on.
Going into training camp, the Las Vegas Raiders have a lot of players on this roster with a good chance to make the 53-man heading into Week 1 against Baltimore. Last season, the Silver and Black were thin on both sides of the ball, but it seems the franchise did a nice job adding talent this offseason.
Now, it will be up to Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden to find the best collection of talent on this roster to get this franchise back to the playoffs. Las Vegas has been to the postseason only once since the 2002 NFL season, but they are certainly a team who will once again battle for a spot in the playoffs in 2021.
The summer will be a crucial one for Mayock and Gruden, who are entering Year 3 together, and the pressure is on them to break the .500 ceiling and put two halves of football together. The last two years have been very frustrating, as the team has navigated tough early-season schedules, only to falter down the stretch.
Here, we look at three players who could go under-the-radar this summer but are ones to keep an eye on throughout, as they could play a key role for this team going forward.
