The Las Vegas Raiders have work to do before they can be Super Bowl contenders, but these five pending FAs playing in Super Bowl LVI could help.
Sunday, the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals will battle it out inside SoFi Stadium to see which team wins the Lombardi Trophy. It has been an incredible ride for both franchises, and both are doing it with former No. 1 overall picks under center, as well as some incredibly talented players on both sides of the ball.
To get this far, you have to have a loaded roster, and these two teams have no shortage of elite players. Here, we look at some of the pending free agents for each team that could help the Silver and Black next season.
5 pending free agents in Super Bowl LVI Raiders should target in 2022
No. 5: Josh Tupou, Defensive Tackle, Cincinnati
Josh Tupou was signed by the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent, and since then, he has worked his way into being a big part of their defense. However, after sitting out last season, and dealing with some knee injuries lately, Tupou could be a player who becomes available in free agency this offseason.
Last offseason, the Raiders revamped the interior of their defensive line, but with many of those names entering free agency, it will be interesting to see how many come back. Tupou is a guy who has playoff experience, has worked his way up from nothing at the NFL level, and should come with a fairly cheap price this offseason.
