He has 36 catches for 327 yards and one touchdown in his career.

  1. I’m sitting here scratching my head. Reggie is doing the same thing he’s done the past couple of years. He’s signing offensive players and letting good defensive players slip away. You only get what you pay for. There isn’t anyone decent on defense going to play for peanuts. Pay up Reggie for some good defensive players.

  2. Reggie’s bargain basement deals will come in handy as soon as the nfl has a bargain basement playoff series and a bargain basement Super Bowl. Then our raiders will be triumphant !!’

  3. With the Chefs signing Watkins, one would think CB would be a priority. This team has not improved through free agency so far, no reason to expect a better result on the field.

    Reggie has yet to be able to find the playmaking TE the Raiders desperately need.

    I’m not even a Raiders fan, but Jared Cook was a stud for you guys last year. Led your team in receiving, and basically won the Thursday night game against the Chiefs for you guys. That was one of the few Raiders games I watched last year, and he was a stud.

    The best off season move was showing the OC and some other coaches the door. I’m not sure they’ve fixed that problem but a team that should have got better on offense got far worse.

    2016 6th overall, 13th in passing, 6th in rushing
    2017 17th overall, 16th in passing, TWENTY FIFTH in rushing

    The offense was good enough to go 12-3 with Carr starting and was a contender to win it all even with a bad defense. There isn’t much to fix there.

    Last years draft was CB, S, DT in the first three rounds. You can’t help injuries there.

    They are not going to give away major contracts in g=free agency. They have to resign a top 5 defensive player in Mack. Cooper & Joseph next have a need at LT due to age sooner or later. They will not be breaking the bank on anyone that’s not already on the roster.

  6. Damn. I thought the Raiders were pretty much set at TE. Cook and Walford are solid.
    They need DEFENCE!!!!

  7. Suh, Po or Mo will be signed. Pick up two db’s and two lb’s and at least one each pans out. I think we will be better at D, especially reverting back to 4-3 scheme.
