4. Brandon Facyson, CB

After signing a two-year deal worth $6.5 million last year, cornerback Brandon Facyson spent the majority of last season on injured reserve. He came back to appear in the team's final three games, playing a total of 44 snaps.

Not that it's a huge sample size, but Pro Football Focus gave Facyson an overall grade of 51.7, with a grade of 55.4 in coverage.

Entering his second season on this contract, Facyson is set to count just under $3 million against the cap. However, if the Raiders cut him, they could end up saving about $2.6 million. For a guy who doesn't necessarily look like a key part of the team's future, and is going on 30 years old, that seems like the logical move for the Raiders -- to cut him.

Without Facyson, the Raiders' pass defense improved quite a bit over the course of the season, ending as the league's 12th ranked unit. Las Vegas could have a significant void at cornerback this offseason, too, if they allow Amik Robertson to sign with another team. All in all, this could be a position that is overhauled in a big way.
