The Las Vegas Raiders have 30 players entering free agency this offseason, and here are some veteran guys who should not be back with the team in 2022.
During a three-game losing streak, the Las Vegas Raiders are inches away from being once again left for dead when it comes to the NFL Playoffs. They have struggled mightily since the bye week, enduring things on and off the field, and with a few more losses, it could be a wrap for the 2021 roster.
Here, we look at some veteran players who have played multiple years in the Silver and Black, and should not be back with the team next season.
5 Las Vegas Raiders veterans who should not be back in 2022
Richie Incognito, Offensive Guard
The time has come for the franchise to move on from Richie Incognito, a player who looked good when healthy for the team, but has been unavailable for the better part of two seasons. Moving forward, it looks like Alex Leatherwood is going to remain at offensive guard, and with another young player in John Simpson getting valuable experience in 2021, Incognito will not be needed in 2022.
There is also the fact that Denzelle Good should return in 2022, and he will likely slide into a starting job along the Raiders offensive line. Injuries and age have caught up to Incognito, and spending money on him would not be wise next offseason.
