The Las Vegas Raiders improved the roster in a big way this offseason, and here are three key improvements heading into the summer months.
The 2021 Las Vegas Raiders were a bit of a surprise, as they started out real strong, and then had to go through some issues in the middle of the season. A lot of that came off the field, and in the end, the Silver and Black had to rally through the last month of the season to grab a Wild Card spot.
For the Raiders franchise, that was only the second time they made the playoffs since the 2002 season and proved that this is a team to watch out for in 2022. This season, they can make the playoffs for the second straight season for the first time since that 2002 campaign, and put themselves on the map as a legitimate contender in the AFC.
To do so, the Raiders are going to have to get key contributions up and down this roster, and thankfully, the new regime in the front office did a great job stacking talent this offseason. New general manager David Ziegler was not afraid to pull the trigger on some monster deal, and in the end, this roster is well ahead of where it was a year ago.
Here, we look at three key areas the Silver and Black improved this offseason.
