The Las Vegas Raiders seemingly turned a corner during the preseason, as the new-look roster posted two dominant victories to open the slate. However, as is customary with Raider Nation, the good times couldn’t last. Disgruntled veteran Chandler Jones has missed the offseason program — and on Tuesday, he made sure to let everyone know why.
The jury is still out on this NFL Draft class. Still, there is a strong chance it works out following the events of the most recent offseason. For that to happen, Adams has to stick around for the remainder of his prime years. And not only that, but he must also continue to be an All-Pro talent. Plus, at least one of these sophomores has to grow into a reliable contributor.
The Las Vegas Raiders swung for the fences last offseason by acquiring two of the best players at their respective positions—at least at the time. The first half of the equation is Davante Adams. He earned All-Pro honors in his first season in Vegas. Unfortunately for general manager Dave Ziegler, Chandler Jones did not fare quite as well.
