As we gear up for day-two of free agency, we reflect on some of the events that transpired yesterday. Who did the Raiders reach out to? Who is Las Vegas confirmed to be interested in? Updates on some of Raider Nation’s favorite targets? Let’s discuss it all.
Day one of free agency; The day many of Raider Nation has looked forward to for weeks. It finally arrived with Day 1 of the legal tampering period, and with a bang. So now, we all anxiously await the mayhem Day 2 brings. Many players across the league found new home homes yesterday, but none with Las Vegas.
Have the Raiders been sleeping? Not exactly.
The Las Vegas Raiders were quiet on Day 1, but sometimes silence is the loudest action. Despite the Raiders agreeing to terms with zero free agents during day one of the legal tampering period, they were still in deep discussion with a few players.
One of these players happened to be All-Pro JC Jackson, who found himself in the AFC West, but wearing powder blue; A tough pill for Raider Nation to swallow, as the division rival Chargers take another massive leap forward.
The Raiders missed out on the big fish in the pond, but all hope is not lost. Even with Tampa’s Carlton Davis staying parked after signing an extension, there’s more than one corner left who the Raiders have confirmed interest in, with one going into deep discussion towards the end of the night.
Las Vegas also waives goodbye to Zay Jones, as heads to Jacksonville on a three-year deal.
