  Raiders | Derek Carr plagued by drops in his career    Tue Apr 7, 11:28 PM

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr has seen his teammates drop 216 passes over the course of his six-year career - the most drops a quarterback has witnessed over that span.

Footballguys view: Carr is on the hot seat in 2020. Not only did the team add Marcus Mariota in free agency, but they could select a quarterback with a premium pick in the 2020 NFL draft. Either way, it looks like Carr may be playing his final days as the Raiders starter.

  Raiders | Darren Waller hard to tackle    Tue Apr 7, 09:47 PM

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller was credited with eight broken tackles on his 90 catches in 2019 - tied with George Kittle for the second-highest total among tight ends.

Footballguys view: Waller had a breakout season in 2019 and was the league's second-leading tight end in terms of receiving yards. We'll see if he can duplicate...or even best..his success in 2020.

  Raiders | Josh Jacobs produced after contact in 2019    Wed Apr 1, 11:39 PM

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs ranked fifth in the league with 683 yards rushing after contact in 2019. He was also one of only six players with at least 200 carries to average a broken tackle at least once every 10 rushing attempts (9.3).

Footballguys view: Jacobs is tough to bring down when he builds a head of steam. He'll be the centerpiece of what the Raiders do on offense (again) in 2020.

  Raiders | Derek Carr was under pressure in 2019    Wed Apr 1, 11:01 PM

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr was hurried 67 times in 2019 - tied with Carson Wentz for the second-highest total in the league.

Footballguys view: Carr is still the Raiders starter for now. He should be pushed for the top job in training camp by Marcus Mariota.

  Raiders | Jordan Love met with Las Vegas reps via video    Wed Apr 1, 01:05 PM

Utah State QB Jordan Love participated in a predraft video meeting with the Las Vegas Raiders, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Raiders have loved Love for some time now. We'll see if they go ahead and add him in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft. The Raiders already have Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota but neither are exciting options for the long-term. Love could be an option for the Raiders if he's on the board when they pick at No.12 overall.

  Raiders | Justin Herbert meets with Las Vegas    Mon Mar 30, 01:10 PM

Oregon QB Justin Herbert is scheduled for a video conference with Las Vegas Raiders representation Monday, March 30.

Footballguys view: There is little chance that Herbert is still on the board by the time the Raiders pick at No.12 overall in the first round. Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota are there to compete for the starting job but there's a shot the Raiders add a rookie to the mix.

  Raiders | Las Vegas officially signs Jason Witten    Wed Mar 25, 08:33 PM

Free-agent TE Jason Witten (Cowboys) officially signed with the Las Vegas Raiders Wednesday, March 25. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Witten gives the Raiders some veteran depth at the tight end position. They already have Darren Waller and Foster Moreau on the depth chart and Witten will work in somehow. We'll see how far up the depth chart he can move when training camp gets here.

  Raiders | Marcus Mariota officially with Raiders    Wed Mar 25, 08:30 PM

Free-agent QB Marcus Mariota (Titans) officially signed with the Las Vegas Raiders Wednesday, March 25. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Mariota didn't want to take a backup job according to people around the Titans organization. One has to wonder if Mariota is going to get a chance to push Derek Carr for the top spot on the depth chart with the Raiders.

  Raiders | Nelson Agholor officially joins Vegas    Wed Mar 25, 08:21 PM

Free-agent WR Nelson Agholor (Eagles) officially signed with the Las Vegas Raiders Wednesday, March 25. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick for the Eagles in the 2015 NFL draft, Agholor didn't live up to his potential in Philadelphia. We expect the Raiders to address the WR position in the NFL draft, perhaps with a premium pick. A move like that would push Agholor to No.4 on the depth chart with guys like Tyrell Williams and Hunter Renfrow already on the roster.

Free-agent TE Nick O'Leary (Jaguars) agreed to terms with the Las Vegas Raiders Saturday, March 21. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Raiders wanted to add tight end talent this offseason and they've made a couple of moves to do that. O'Leary will work for a spot on the depth chart behind starter Darren Waller. Jason Witten and Foster Moreau make up the rest of the tight end room.

Free-agent WR Nelson Agholor (Eagles) on Saturday, March 21, agreed to a one-year deal with the Las Vegas Raiders, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Agholor needed a fresh start after his time with the Eagles was mostly disappointing. The Raiders have Tyrell Williams and Hunter Renfrow as the top two receivers, but expect them to add a top-tier talent in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent TE Jason Witten reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Las Vegas Raiders, according to a source Tuesday, March 17. Witten can earn up to $4.75 million in 2020.

Footballguys view: Witten kind of cramps the room in Vegas where they already have Darren Waller and Foster Moreau. He's there for veteran depth but should not do much from a fantasy perspective.
