    2019 Raider Free Agent Targets

    With close to 75M in cap space going into the offseason, feel free to breakdown, tear this post apart, suggest players:

    My free agent list-

    RB:

    a few starting RBs hitting the market, a couple good back who can add depth(left out RFA)-

    Levon Bell(27)- Elite top 5 back. He is going to get paid big bucks by someone
    Mark Ingram(29)- getting close to 30, but might leave Saints to get paid and more carriers.. I would sign him on 2-3 year deal but no monster contract
    Tevin Coleman(26) - didn't do much when Freeman went down. I'll just sign him to a year prove it deal.. wouldn't throw big money at him
    TJ Yeldon(25) - guy I really want us to look at, stuck behind Fournette. coming off the best season of his career. Can run, and good pass catcher.. Hitting his prime
    Marshawn Lynch(33)- looked good when healthy, but got hurt. Peterson,and Gore still getting the job done. Could leave to contender or retire
    Tay Murray(29)- stuck as number 2 back with Vikings. Wants to be a starter again
    guys who could add depth or fill a role-

    CJ Anderson (28) - really solid for the Rams towards the end of the season
    Spencer Ware(27)- KC signed Damien Williams over him. Former starting KC Back
    Doug Martin(30)- hamster still good depth
    Bilan Powell(30)- a good passing back, could bring competition to Richard
    Mike Davis(26)- played really solid for Seahawks, could be off man out with Carson and Rashad Penny. Solid Running back

    FB:

    could upgrade over Kevin Smith with a few guys-

    Mike Burton(27)- elite running backing FB..We should try to poach the Bears any chance we get
    Anthony Sherman(30)- only other FB of note.... stud run blocker, special teamer, and better ball skills than K Smith

    WR:

    no number 1 WRs, market has more WR2/Slot-

    Golden Tate(31)- top WR on market, probably looking for last payday... Not sure his is worth it
    John Brown(29)- deep threat, but has a history of injuries
    Adam Humphries(26)- tore it up this season. Bucs might release Desean Jackson and ink Adam.. Perfect Slot
    Jamison Crowder(26)- has talent to be a solid slot, but he is coming off an injury riddled 2018. Could be a good buy low, went to Duke(smart WR)
    Tyrell Williams(27)- 6'4 with deep speed, might leave LA to get paid
    guys who could be camp invites with the hope they surprise and make plays(cheap depth)-

    Kelvin Benjamin(28)
    Donte Moncrief(26)
    Breshad Perriman(26)- played well to end the season for Browns, deep speed
    Devin Funches(25)
    Ryan Grant(28) - good in the slot
    Bruce Ellington(28)- see above, more injury risk
    Jermaine Kearse(29)
    Chris Conely(27)
    Martavis Bryant(27)
    Phillip Dorsett(26)- a burner, modern day James Jett
    Kevin White(27)

    TE:

    Cook could walk for a major pay day, would like to sign Cook on a 2year deal-

    Eric Ebron(26)- going get paid big, after a monster 2018 year
    Tyler Eifert(28)- has talent, but too injury prone

    RT:

    we can agree Brandon Parker is a project-

    Ja'Wan James(27) - starting RT from Dolphins looking to get paid
    Daryl Williams(27)- starting tackle from Panthers set to hit the market...
    Bobby Massie(30)- starting RT from the Bears, would be another chance to poach the Bears.. Could be a good stopgap to see if Brandon Parker develops
    George Fant(26)- ties to Cable, maybe ready to handle being a RT?
    Matt Feiler(27)- from Steelers with experience at RT
    Ty Nsekhe(33)- old vet who played well at LT/RT. could be brought in to challenge and mentor Parker
    Donovan Smith(26) former high pick who failed at LT, but looked better at RT
    Cameron Fleming(26)- another experienced RT from Cowboys/Pats
    Ty Sambrailo(26)- played well as Falcons RT
    Seantrel Henderson(26)- starting Texans RT, missed entire season after he broke his ankle

    DE:

    Raiders need to improve the pass rush-

    Jadevon Clowney(26)- going to demand a lot of Benjamins
    Demarcus Lawerence(27)- see above

    Trey Flowers(26)- great pass rusher, Pats have been cheap in the past
    Frank Clark(26)- great class of DEs in free agency
    Brandon Graham(31)-
    Preston Smith(26)- stud in all aspects
    Ezekiel Ansah(30)-
    Dante Fowler(25)- potential type of pickup
    Derrick Morgan(30)-
    Margus Hunt(32)-
    Chris Long(34)- legacy player who has great leadership
    guys who could be brought in for depth in a unit that needs pass rush(only 13 sacks in 2018)

    Randy Gregory(26)- character issues drives his value down low, but pressures the QB
    Romeo Okwara(24)- broke out with 7 sacks last year
    Kerry Hyder(28)- injured last year, but has had a solid career as a starter
    Kony Ealy(27)- knows the system, he can turn it around
    Benson Mayowa(28)- close to 5 sacks, he need more sacks
    Dion Jordan(29)- low risk, still has untapped potential

    DT:
    we have Hurst and Hall as a young pair, and possibly Ellis coming back as NT. still be wise to invest in trenches, as our DL is still a weak link

    Interior Stud Pass Rushers-

    Grady Jarrett(26) - doubt we land him, similar to Hurst and going to demand big money
    David Irving(26)- Injured in 2018, but is an elite player when healthy
    Sheldon Richardson(28)- interior pass rusher, we had chances to sign him and passed
    Run Stuffers-

    John Hankins(26)- NT guys who can add depth and plug the run, maybe we can sign for value and improve the overall talent of the weak DLine
    Christian Covington(25)- NT- see above
    Darius Philon(25)- NT also had 4 sacks
    Tyeler Davison(26)- NT see above
    guys who can bring in cheap depth(pass rush or NT)-

    Roy Robertson Harris(26)- would also weaken the Bears!
    Bennie Logan- (29)
    Domata Peko(34)- seemed to really bring it against us
    Muhammed Wilkerson(29)
    Henry Anderson(28)
    Brett Urban(28)
    Steve McLendon(33)
    Brandon Mebane(34)
    Zach Kerr(29)
    Jordan Phillips(26)
    Quinton Jefferson(26)
    Rodney Gunter(27)
    Dominic Easley(27)- is wrong system, a lot of potential
    OLB:

    we could use a starting Strongside Backer or weak side if we decided to move Whitehead to SAM

    Dee Ford(28)- coming off 13 sack season, he is going to have a huge market. From the Chiefs
    Zadaruis Smith(27)- looking for starting money, great at rushing the passer... maybe more of 3-4 fit
    KJ Wright(30)- one of the best linebackers of this decade
    Clay Matthews(33)- might be on his last legs, but I could Gruden having interest
    Eli Harold(25)- career derailed after he started kneeling, but the man can rush the passer
    Aaron Lynch(26)- good pass rusher, would be a good depth
    Shane Ray(26)- former 1st rounder who hasn't lived up to the bill of being a good pass rusher. Perhaps a change of scenery would do wonders
    Shaq Barrett(26)- has been a productive pass rusher for the Broncos
    Anthony Barr(27)- had a down year, but has been a pro bowler for many years
    MLB:

    Raiders still have no long term answer at MLB

    Jordan Hicks(27)- heart and soul of the Eagles defense
    CJ Mosely(27)- a stud for one of the best defenses in the NFL
    Denzel Perryman(26)- had a season ending injury, but a baller when healthy
    Patrick Onwuasor(27)- Watching the Charger game, and man this guy can play. Stuck on a talented defense
    Corey Littleton(25)- been a stud for the Rams all year, and they are going to have cap issues
    Kwon Alexander(25)- has had a good career and entering his prime, injured in 2018
    Preston Brown(26)- could come cheap, starting experience
    depth-

    Jake Ryan(27)- injured last year, a great locker room guy and a Gruden guy.
    CB:

    Melvin might walk, Nelson is still unproven

    Ronald Darby(25)- tore his acl
    Steven Nelson(26)- one of the highlights of the weak Chiefs defense
    Bryce Callahan(27)- a solid slot corner, could weaken the Bears!
    Pierre Desir(28)- coming off a career year
    Rashan Melvin(29)- didn't have the best year for the Raiders
    Darqueze Dennard(27)- knows the system, former 1st round pick
    Justin Coleman(25)- had a good year for the Seahawks
    depth- guys who have potential to compete and win a starting spot/slot

    Kayvon Webster(28)
    EJ Gaines(27)
    Jason Verrett(28)
    Bashaud Breeland(27)
    Eric Rowe(27)
    Coty Sensabaugh(30)
    PJ Williams(26)
    S:

    Erik Harris could be brought back as a 3rd safety, I would like to add a partner for Karl Joseph

    Landon Collins(25)- would be a perfect fit next to Karl Joseph.. will demand alot of money
    HaHa Clinton Dix(26)- another great fit in Silver n Black

    Adrian Amos(26)- Bears probably going to let him walk
    Clayton Geathers(27)- Range!
    Tre Boston(27)- see above
    Kenny Vaccaro(28)- more a force against the run, and injury concerns
    George lloka(29)- knows the system, decent
    Adrian Phillips(27)- emerging safety, may Bolt for bigger role and money
    cheap depth, would be smart to have 3 safeties who have range and can play

    Mike Mitchel(32)l- thrived as a 3rd safety for Colts
    Jimmie Ward(28)- could use a fresh start
    Curtis Riley(27)- had 4 picks for the Giants, ended season in dog house
    Erik Harris(29)- would be welcomed back as depth
    Eric Reid(27)

    If I'm going to pay someone more then market, it's CJ Mosely. I'd bring him in and give him the "C" day 1. We need so much help on defense, that bringing Mosely can mask a couple deficiencies immediately, veteran leader in the middle and a sideline to sideline LB. Can help the safeties a ton by finishing all running plays.

    Tyrell Williams is someone who can fit Gruden's offense as a multi dimensional weapon, speed for the deep ball and the size in the redzone.

    I like Kwon Alexander. He not going to get a lot of money as he is solid. Also Shane Ray, would play the Broncos twice and won't coast a lot.

    cj would be my target as well on d,resign hankins,add shane ray cheap or go after dee ford whom i dont see the chief letting go of,love tyrell to replace martavis would also go after adam humphries or golden tate to man the slot,the big get for me would be lev bell,marshawn falls off get rid of washington and doug martin to off set adding lev and keep richard and cw3 as our backups plus a rookie

    Some nice talent for sure. It says no #1 WR but Tyrrell Williams is really good. He would be a big boost speedwise to our receiving crew.

    Crazy how all the big time talent in FA & the draft is on Defense. Hardly any elite offensive weapons available..

    this is before cuts too.... I think we will take the Gruden free agent approach again, add low cost vets to fill needs... allow us to go bpa in draft, alot of cap space minus Mack and Cooper
