The Las Vegas Raiders are looking to start off the NFL season strong after a disappointing finale season at Oakland.
No doubt the Raiders are considering strengthening the team to build a strong core that will carry them through the season.
Rumours of buying a new quarterback have been circulating for some time. The team have had their eye on Derek Carr, who without a doubt would be a strong addition to the Raiders.
According to NFL Mocks, “Head coach Jon Gruden has built out a respectable 4-3 defines with great draft selections in Clelin Ferrell and Maxx Crosby, but still, need an offseason or two to put the final touches on the unit to make them a complete team.”
NFL followers suspect that the Las Vegas Raiders will acquire immediate contributors through free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft.
It is noteworthy to mention that Clark County decided on acquiring the Raiders when they offered to contribute $750 million toward the cost of the Raiders’ new $2 billion home.
Las Vegas Raiders already in a good position
The Raiders have a great opportunity this season as they have one of the best running backs in the NFL. Josh Jacobs is currently one of the best downfield passers in the league and is considered the drive behind the Raiders offensive line.
CBS Sports recently announces that “The Raiders’ chances of landing Byron Jones are strong, considering the projected $50.3 million in salary and the franchise’s willingness to attract big-name players to Sin City.”
On the other hand, it looks like rumours about Tom Brady are quickly being dismissed as the Las Vegas Raiders shape up for the NFL’s season ahead.
There’s no doubt that Brady is a big draw. However, he is currently far from being a perfect football choice for the Raiders. Although the quarterback completed with 24 touchdown passes and an amazing 4,057 passing yards, his overall success went downhill.
Las Vegas is getting ready for its new home team with a state of the art stadium set to open this fall.

The new 320,000-square-feet headquarters will house one-and-half football fields, a training centre and office space. Expected to open spring of 2020, the team will be playing their home games in the
Commenting on the development of the facility and stadium, Raiders team president Marc Badin says, “We’re pleased with the progress that has been made and wants to thank those who are working diligently on the project.”
