Raiders: Only Nation Podcast, 2021 Free Agency Preview

In this week’s episode, The Only Nation Podcast crew reviews current Las Vegas Raiders news and notes to begin the show. We then preview 2021 free agency with special guest Ken Thomson, host of Sports X Radio.

Latest Raiders News and Discussion

We start off the episode by looking at the Raiders’ decision to release defensive back LaMarcus Joyner. Next we discuss the upcoming trade of offensive tackle Trent Brown to the New England Patriots. Accordingly, the Raiders offensive line is set to look very different this season as Paul Gutierrez of ESPN argues. We finish up the segment with the news that Nick Kwiatkoski and Corey Littleton restructed their contracts.

Once a Raider, Always a Raider 

After the news, we have a short tribute to former Raiders special teams coach and director of football operations Steve Ortmayer.

An interview with Ken Thomson of Sports X Radio is the featured part of the episode. We pose a few questions to Thomson. First, we ask which new player from the 2020 season will make the biggest leap this upcoming year. Next we discuss whether head coach Jon Gruden is on a short leash for the 2021 season if the Silver and Black misses the playoffs.

Thomson later tells us which players he sees the Raiders needing in free agency which begins later this week. We then ask him about how he views the running back and quarterback rooms in the 2021 season. Finally we wrap up the sit-down answering the question of which player needs to step up and show improvement this next year.

To end the episode, we find out who the highest scoring Raider outside of place kickers is in a new “Homer, did you know” question. For once, both Homer and Heidi get the answer right.
