Las Vegas Raiders: 5 takeaways from 2021 Preseason Game No. 1
Javin White is on a mission
One player who really stood out the last offseason was linebacker Javin White, a product of UNLV who ended up playing in four games during the regular season. This offseason, the Raiders have done a nice job adding talent at the linebacker position, making White’s quest for a roster spot even tougher, but he appears to be up for the challenge.
White was all over the field last night, hitting everything that moved, and he ended the game with six tackles, including five solo, which led the team. While he was atop the stat sheet, the numbers do not tell the whole story, and one thing is for sure, White is on a mission to be in the rotation at linebacker this season.
