HENDERSON, Nev.--The much-anticipated 2022 campaign will begin with the Las Vegas Raiders training camp in just 17 days. Expectations are soaring in the Raider Nation.
My colleagues and I, who cover all 32 NFL teams have collaborated to bring you an in-depth analysis by an expert on each of the teams, as a primer for the start of this campaign.
Below you can read my analysis of your Silver and Black, and at the bottom, you can see the insider analysis of the rest of the league.
Las Vegas Raiders
Key additions: Davante Adams, WR (FA); Chandler Jones, DE (FA); Anthony Averett , CB (FA), Brandon Bolden, WR (FA); Mack Hollins, WR (FA), Zamir White, RB (Draft), Neil Farrell Jr., DL (Draft), Matthew Butler, DL (Draft)
Key losses: Yannick Ngakoue, DE (Trade), Nick Kwiatkoski, LB (Released), Cory Littleton, LB (Released), Carl Nassib, DL (Released)
Offseason grade: A. The Las Vegas Raiders added the best offensive, and defensive free agents to a ten-win team, that was the fifth seed in the AFC Playoffs. The Raiders upgraded their coaching staff with Josh McDaniels, and the addition of GM Dave Ziegler has the Raiders working in the same direction. The key additions of several free agents, as the Silver and Black are poised to make a legitimate run at the AFC West title.
Biggest question still to be answered: The Raiders would love to add an additional offensive lineman, defensive back, and perhaps even a linebacker, within reason. The new regime is extremely disciplined, and they are confident they can compete in the AFC. Any addition would have to make sense long-term financially, as well as to the chemistry in the locker room.
