So the Raiders have solidified their offensive line with guard/tackle Kelechi Osemele and bolstered their pass rush with linebacker Bruce Irvin, but have yet to address their secondary. That may change sooner than later, according to this tweet from AFC West insider Bill Williamson:

Possibly adding to the veracity of this report is another tweet from Sirius XM NFL Radio's Eddie Borsilli.

We have all heard chatter today about the Rams desiring to retain Jenkins' services, but let's revisit this tweet Jenkins himself made quite recently:

Jenkins of course is referring to the Rams' decision to retain fellow cornerback Trumaine Johnson instead of tagging Jenkins. Perhaps Jenkins has had time to think it over, but the tweet hasn't been deleted and a good offer from the Raiders could probably alleviate any doubts Jenkins has about departing the Rams and their new digs in Los Angeles.

We will be on top of the latest news about Janoris Jenkins and all other Raiders free agency news in the coming days, so stay tuned to Silver and Black Pride!
