    Raiders must use cap space to be legitimate contender

    https://justblogbaby.com/2022/08/09/...ate-contender/

    If the Las Vegas Raiders want to be legitimate contenders in 2022, they have to use the rest of their cap space.

    Nearly 2 weeks into training camp, the Las Vegas Raiders currently have the second-most available cap space in
    the NFL and have yet to use it. This cap space was created with the June 1 releases of Cory Littleton and Carl Nassib
    and the eventual pay cut and retirement of Denzelle Good.

    However, since this newly created cap space, the Raiders have yet to use any of it, aside from a small pay bump this
    season for Hunter Renfrow.

    If the new regime is truly serious about competing for an NFL championship, they need to show that commitment by adding
    to this roster. While the Raiders could hold some of this cap space for extensions for Darren Waller and Denzell Perryman, they
    still have plenty of room to add other players.

    An extension for Waller and Perryman shouldn’t cost a significant chunk of the current cap space and the Raiders have a ton of
    available cap space next offseason.The Raiders have shown their desire to compete this season after a surprise playoff berth in
    2021 and to truly compete they must fill a few holes. The Raiders have needs on the defensive line, offensive line and all around
    depth as a whole. It could be that the Raiders wanted to get a look at their team as is before making any veteran additions, but
    between injuries and ineffectiveness, the team could use some depth.


    I agree with this article 100%. Spend some money and bring in some vets that with help the Raiders win in 2022.

    Ndamukong Suh, Sheldon Richardson, Star Lotulelei, Linval Joseph, and Brandon Williams could all improve the defensive line.
    Daryl Williams, Eric Fisher, Bobby Massie, or Bryan Bulaga could help protect Carr.

    10 million for Solder or Williams 8 million for Suh.....Rams had Whitworth anchoring the OLine and Donald the DLine. Get some veterans to man the big uglies.

    $14M for Williams over 2 years with $8M guaranteed. Give Suh $6M guaranteed with another $3M in incentives. Offer Sheldon Richardson the same deal if Suh doesn't sign.

    I cant see Suh turning down a 6 mil base with 3 mil in possible incentives and in Vegas no less.
    And they better come to new terms with Waller as well as Perryman. Then do whatever you have to in order to sign best RT available.

    Soder and Suh both lines addressed.
