Jon Gruden’s first season back on the Oakland sideline didn’t go exactly as planned. The team finished with a 4-12 record in a year defined by the trading of star players. Pass rusher Khalil Mack and wide receiver Amari Cooper were sent to Chicago and Dallas respectively, and both players thrived in their new homes.

The Raiders, meanwhile, struggled immensely, especially on the defensive side of the ball. They surrendered more points than any team in the league, and they generated the fewest sacks in the league by a whopping margin of 13. Simply put, the Raiders had the worst defense in the league.

On offense, things weren’t all that much better. Although Derek Carr posted respectable numbers with 4049 passing yards, the team ranked 28th in points scored. The addition of mercurial receiver Antonio Brown to the receiving corps should enliven the offense, as should the drafting of running back Josh Jacobs. Both players provide star power to a roster that was previously lacking in that department.

However, even with these improvements, the Raiders still appear far from being competitive, much to the dismay of a fanbase watching its Raiders play in Oakland for the final time.

Offseason Moves

Trading for Antonio Brown was undoubtedly the biggest moves of Oakland’s offseason, but it was far from their only move.

Along with Brown, the Raiders brought in Tyrell Williams from the Chargers to bolster their receiving corps. On the offensive line, the Raiders spent big money on tackle Trent Brown. To account for the retirement of Marshawn Lynch, Oakland drafted running back Josh Jacobs from Alabama in the first round.

However, new faces were not only brought in on offense. The big defensive signing of the offseason was that of safety Lamarcus Joyner from the Rams, and the Raiders used their fourth overall pick on pass rusher Clelin Ferrell. Additionally, Oakland added Vontaze Burfict to their linebackers in what looks to be a low risk, high reward move.

Looking Ahead

NFL fans will have early access to the Raiders this offseason, as the team is set to be featured on HBO’s Hard Knocks. The Raiders appear to be a good choice for the show for a variety of reasons. This will be the last year for the franchise in Oakland before moving to Las Vegas, and between Gruden, Brown, and Burfict, the team has three of the NFL’s biggest personalities. How those personalities mesh could define the team’s season.

With Brown, Williams, and Jacobs onboard, Carr has a plethora of weapons at his disposal. Adding Trent Brown to the offensive line only further supports the notion that the veteran signal caller could be set up for the best year of his career.

Unfortunately, even a career year from Carr might not be enough to get the Raiders into the playoffs, thanks in part to their defense. As mentioned earlier, the Raiders generated the fewest sacks in the league, and they finished 28th in points against. Joyner and Ferrell should help in that regard, but it probably will not be enough. Relying on a rookie to immediately fix the pass rushing problem is equally dangerous and preposterous, and Joyner, although solid, is not a franchise-changing player by any means.

Look for the Raiders to once again finish in the bottom portion of the league, which, truth be told, could be a blessing, as it would allow the team to restock through the draft in order to build a competitive squad just in time for the franchise to relocate to Las Vegas.
