The Las Vegas Raiders linebacker room could be getting a little thin, and these three veteran free agents could come in and provide depth.
It has been a rough go for the Las Vegas Raiders defense as of late, especially the linebacker group in terms of injuries. After seeing Nicholas Morrow and Nick Kwiatkoski have to sit out the Los Angeles Rams game, and Javin White go down with what appeared to be a knee injury on Saturday night, the Silver and Black are suddenly thin at the linebacker position.
With that said here are three veteran linebackers who are still free agents that could come in and help the Raiders right now.
Las Vegas Raiders: 3 potential FA linebackers to provide depth
No. 3: Avery Williamson
Of the remaining free agents at the linebacker position, there are three that I believe would not only provide depth but could be solid starters if injuries continue to affect this linebacker group. Avery Williamson is a player with over 600 tackles in his NFL career, and when healthy, can still impact a game in a big way.
In Week 16 of last season, he was able to rack up 14 tackles against a playoff team in the Indianapolis Colts, and at 29-years old, he should still have some tread left in the tires. A former teammate of Darron Lee, Williamson would get a cheap get this late in free agency and has to be someone the Raiders take a look at.
