Right tackle Trent Brown was one of the Raiders’ free agent acquisitions during the 2019 offseason and the team went from 4-12 to 7-9 with the help of their new additions.

Another offseason has come and gone and the Raiders added another handful of players as they try to continue progressing toward a winning record this time around. Brown’s assessment of this offseason’s moves is a positive one and he thinks that it sets the stage for a good run in Las Vegas.

“I feel like we definitely got better this year,” Brown said, via the Fresno Bee. “We took strides last year and we’re going to continue to take strides and just put one foot in front of the other. Even with the additions last year, me being one of them, you can look at those guys and trust the organization . . . to put the right players in place for us to win some games and win championships. With Henry Ruggs, and we still got one of the best backs in the league and we got the best offensive line in the league. I mean, it’s about to be scary. I’m excited. I definitely think it’s going to be special times in silver and black for years to come.”

Brown has company when it comes to high expectations for the Raiders in 2020 and meeting them would make for an enjoyable first year in their new home.

  1. Special times at the super flush stadium in sin city with the QB and WR less team. Two decades of failure and the washed up coach and TV guy are in waaaaaaay over their heads.

  2. Trent is right in saying the offense is really well tooled on paper this year. What needs to happen, and I love him as much as anyone, is our guy Derek Carr needs to unlock that potential. He’s never been the one to light up the score board and I feel he leaves a lot of available opportunities out there. He needs to expand his game and get more big plays. The weapons he has now should help so no excuses. Also early career he was like one of the best QB in the redzone… Since Gruden came in the Raiders are terrible there.. dont quite understand why..

    He is really starting to play for his future in LV and that 3rd contract.

  3. The offense is loaded and the defense has improved, at least 11 wins, The Raiders are back and you clowns need to get used to it

  4. Every year you talk up your trash squads (Lions & Raiders) and by week 3 you disappear.

    LOL.

  5. The Oakland, LA, Vegas Raiders. Pre-season Paper Champions once again! Maybe Vegas will finally give them fan support. Did Davis keep the tarps?

  6. Prediction. After another 10 years of futility, the Raiders will be shipped off to Mexico. They simply wont be able to compete against the Vegas casinos with their usual non- winning product. Viva las Mexico, baby!

  7. I became a raider fan in 1981 when they moved to LA, stye with them through the move back to Oakland and the last 20 years dysfunction. Im done, Vegas move is whack, lost their sole. CA is a diverse state, Nevadad is a poop hole full of vagrants and losers looking for get rich schemes. Glad they got their new stadium which looks great from the outside but looks outdated on the inside, mini-videoborards, why? Theis hurts but I am switching to the Los Angeles Rams. Mark, you lost me with he move to Vegas. Vegas, you deserve a worthy;ess team like the Chargers, NFL 2016 relocation was a mess just like the mid 90s relocations.

  8. No matter what new players the Raiders have got over the years they always like to talk like things are going to get better and then just continue to contribute to adding another non-winning record to the history books. Players from 15 of the last 16 Raiders teams thought the same Trent.

  9. I was pleasantly surprised that the Raiders went 7-9 under Gruden in his 2nd year because I was expecting no more than 4 or 5 wins in 2019. Unfortunately 7 wins was likely as good as it gets for the “coaching genius” and I expect that they’ll regress this year.

    The previous Raiders’ HC was fired for doing much better than Gruden in his first 3 years, but Del Rio wasn’t the politician that Gruden is.

  10. Team is well built, not flashy but they are definitely contenders to make the playoffs and maybe win a game or two if Carr starts to play like he did a few years back.

  11. Biggest improvement will be their home record. I see the Raiders going undefeated at “The Big Al” this year. 8 and 0 baby.

  12. There’s only one nation and there’s only ever been one nation, Raider Nation.

    You are joking, right? How many times have the Raiders had to move due to poor home gate sales? Does a tarped off stadium ring a bell? There is only one nation and it’s the United States of America. Other fan bases are far more loyal and committed than the Raider fan base. They keep their teams and build new stadiums. Libby wouldnt build you one because the Raiders still owe the county $120M on the disastrous Mt. Davis expansion. You know, the seats that were always tarped?

  13. The big feller has a Super Bowl ring from the patsies.
    He’s been around winners. If he sees it, it’s there.
    The Raiders had possession of the ball, AND the lead at the 2 minute warning against the jags and the Texans.
    They also threw away that game against the Broncos in week 17.
    Considering the 8 week road trip, the game in the UK, the AB fiasco, and the injury toll, the Raiders could have been 11-5 last year.
    This team will be tough to beat this year.

    They, somehow, managed to lose BOTH games.
    It felt like a combination of predictable play calling on 3rd down, and playing “not to lose” which caused both losses.
    They played well enough to win in both games. They choked st the end.
