Las Vegas Raiders: 3 potential FA linebackers to provide depth
No. 1: K.J. Wright
One big name that has been linked to the Raiders in recent weeks has been K.J. Wright, who has supposedly narrowed his choice down to returning to Seattle or heading to Las Vegas. Wright is a bit older, but still very productive, and has played under Gus Bradley before when he was the defensive coordinator in Seattle in 2011 and 2012.
Wright is a solid off-the-ball linebacker who may not set the world on fire with his speed but has the ability to read plays as they happen and make a play. He is a veteran who has played in some huge games in his career, is a former Super Bowl champion, and would bring an excellent attitude, and leadership to this linebacker room.
With the likelihood of Marcus Mariota returning to the Raiders after this season, who are some potential replacements to back up Derek Carr in 2022?
Hopefully, White is going to be okay, because he is having himself an incredible summer, and one that would have led to him being on the team’s 53-man roster for the Baltimore game. Las Vegas has looked better on defense, but injuries are starting to mount up, so some free-agent additions could be on the horizon.
