We are one game into the 2021 preseason, and these four Las Vegas Raiders appear to be tumbling down the depth charts heading into Week 2.
The Las Vegas Raiders beat up on the Seattle Seahawks during the team’s first preseason game on Saturday night, as plenty of players opened some eyes. It was a clean victory for the Silver and Black, their first preseason or regular season game in front of fans, and it sent the crowd home happy.
After the game, the Raiders had to get the roster from 90 to 85 by Tuesday, and they made quick work of that, handling that business on Monday. Now, the rest of the players still in camp will be looking to find their way onto the 53-man roster, and to do so, they must continue to climb the depth charts.
There is still a lot of summer left to go for the Raiders, including two more preseason games, and more than 30 more players to be cut. The good thing is, the depth looks much better than it did a year ago, and we will soon see if the team has made the right decisions in terms of who is on the roster when the team welcomes Baltimore to Allegiant Stadium on September 13.
Here, we look at four members of the current roster who appear to be tumbling down the depth chart this summer.
