This week’s episode of The Only Nation Podcast finds us sharing some Las Vegas Raiders news and discussing upcoming free agency, which is around the corner.
The Raiders may benefit from a higher salary cap in 2021
We cover some Raiders’ recent updates, including the impending NFL salary cap determination, quarterback Derek Carr’s contract speculation, and legend Tom Flores to kick off the show. The salary cap floor is expected to be at least $180 million this season. While this is higher than the original prediction, it is still below the current number.
Carr’s status will the team is becoming clearer. Instead of possibly leaving Las Vegas via trade, he could be seeing a contract extension soon. Flores is finally headed for enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. As a result, his career is the subject of this week’s Raiders Report available on the Raiders official website.
Then, there’s a look at what the Raiders could do in free agency
As far as free agency is concerned, we talk about what positions should be the Silver and Black’s priority. We discuss defensive back Richard Sherman as a possible target and list reasons why he would be a good fit with the Silver and Black. JJ Watt, who is already available to sign with any team, could also be a potential signing, and we all have similar conclusions.
