Many believed the Raiders would be in the market to add some help to the defense but so far there has not been any additions. On Friday the Raiders, along with others, were linked to Jets wide receiver, Robby Anderson.
On Sunday morning NFL network insider, Ian Rapoport published an article where he discussed several players he believes could be on the move before Tuesday’s deadline. Two of those players were Raiders running backs, Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington.
With the trade deadline two days away, a snapshot look at who could be on the move and who could want them: https://t.co/qu2mnpN0Ll— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 27, 2019
He lists the Raiders and Chiefs as teams having running back depth, and that teams looking to add depth have inquired.
It’s interesting to hear that Richard or Washington could be dealt with because just last week, the Raiders worked out multiple running backs, one would think the Raiders were looking to add depth and not trade it away.
This is the first we’ve heard of the possibility of Richard or Washington being on the move. With the way Josh Jacobs has burst onto the scene, displaying his ability as a complete back, it is understandable that Richard and Washington have now become expendable.
