The Las Vegas Raiders have hit the ground running as they begin the 2021 training camp, and here are three starting jobs up for grabs.
The 2021 season saw a major shakeup within the Las Vegas Raiders roster. A plethora of new faces have arrived in Vegas in anticipation of extended playing time, and with these new arrivals comes freshly minted competition, this season in particular.
From the newly made-over offensive line to the new acquisitions at receiver and defense, the Raiders have added a ton of new faces to improve upon the disappointing 8-8 season from a year ago. The goal in Year 4 under Jon Gruden has got to be playoffs or bust, as they seemingly revamp this roster every offseason.
Last year, they had the offense to win them games, but early in camp, all eyes have been on the defense. We are seeing some major players step up, including Yannick Ngakoue, who will start at the defensive end position alongside Maxx Crosby in 2021.
With many positions are set, let’s take a look at a few key position battles up for grabs currently in the Raiders camp.
