Joseph totaled 67 tackles, two tackles for loss, two fumble recoveries, an interception and four pass breakups in 2020.

  1. I would absolutely welcome him back, upgrade over anything they have currently.

  2. Even if he’s not a superstar, the Raiders have a very young secondary, and there just hasn’t been much pre-season practice since these young guns have been drafted. They could use a veteran presence back there. I can think of a couple times at the end of games last year where the youthfulness got in trouble. Not having any veteran leadership back there probably cost them 2 games last season.

  3. Abrams needs to improve… and he will. Bringing Joseph back means that we have a couple of maulers back there in the secondary. Add some pass rush and a linebacker during the draft and this defense just may go from terrible, to terrifying in one off season.

  4. The Raiders need a safety that is much bigger then Joseph but he is an instant starter on the Raiders.

    Massive collisions in the the Raiders secondary along with multiple maddening missed tackles coming up. Joseph and Abram will at least be fun to watch.

  5. It would be great to get him back, still need to draft a safety though but Joseph could start right away.

  6. We shouldve never let him go, He played better than all the safeties we had at the time, was benched over Harris for the first part of his last season with us, came back and was like 5th on the team in tackles. Hes not an elite safety but hes a solid starter. Please sign him.

  7. This would be a great signing. Definitely an upgrade over Harris, and hopefully they play him where he excelled in college.

  8. Joseph is better than the two clowns we have back there now, missed assignments ,penalties and bonehead plays cost us several wins the past two years. Sign a veteran and draft a quality rookie that can cover & crush people over the middle..Chucky and Mayock have to get this right or lose more fans!
