Las Vegas Raiders: 3 biggest cuts during the 2021 53-man roster release
Out of all the decisions the Raiders made today, I am least happy about this one, and if it weren’t for Joseph playing in the final preseason game, I would be incredibly surprised by this move. I always liked Karl Joseph and was not happy when we did not bring him back a couple years ago, and in return was very pleased when we signed him this offseason.
Unfortunately, the team did not see what they wanted in Joseph this offseason, as he did not make the team despite there being some question marks at the position. Johnathan Abram struggled last season and Tre’Von Moehrig is a rookie, so the team is putting a lot of confidence in some unknowns at this point.
Joseph was a player that could play both safety positions, and although he was far from perfect, he did come up big for the Raiders on multiple occasions in 2019. With that being said, this move may prove that Gus Bradley has a lot of faith in Abram, and maybe his system just did not fit KuJo well.
