The Las Vegas Raiders roster is starting to come together this offseason with the NFL draft out of the way. Unfortunately, this means some of last year’s players could be out of luck.
There weren’t many positives from the defensive side of the ball last year for the Raiders. The offense was the best thing from last year’s squad but improvements were needed across the entire roster. Now that the draft is over and with a slew of undrafted rookies now training, it could be the end of certain in-house free agents.
Question is, who could be the odd men out this offseason? Well, there’s a handful actually, and while some were more promising than others, there just might not be room for them.
Who could be out for the Raiders?
- Daryl Worley
- Sam Young
- Vic Beasley
- Kyle Wilber
A player that some figured would get a shot this upcoming season was Beasley. The former Atlanta Falcon is a one-time All-Pro and Pro Bowler, in 2019 he accumulated eight sacks. It’s possible with the rookies that have been added along with Yannick Nagkoue’s arrival, there might not be enough snaps to go around for Beasley.
Worley played in two games, starting one of them, unfortunately, he didn’t impress. Signed mostly due to the secondary being decimated by injuries, Worley surrendered two touchdowns in coverage last season. It would be shocking to see Worley return given how he looked, besides, the secondary looks set with Casey Hayward’s addition.
On the other hand, Young might be of use, if nothing else, for depth purposes. Also, Wilber returning shouldn’t shock folks. He’s a staunch member of the Raiders’ special teams unit, playing in nearly 1,000 snaps these past three seasons.
What are your thoughts, Raider Nation? Do you feel any of these free agents deserve to return this season?
