We are wrapping up our Las Vegas Raiders’ free agent tiers series with the low-priority players.
We previously examined the high (Nelson Agholor, Denzelle Good, Johnathan Hankins, Nicholas Morrow and Kyle Wilber) and mid-priority Las Vegas free agents (Vic Beasley, Devontae Booker, Derek Carrier, Maliek Collins, Nevin Lawson, Takk McKinley and Chris Smith).
Now let’s look at the lowest priority group.
While it may sound harsh. I just don’t see the point of the Raiders making these players priorities. If they can’t upgrade, perhaps they can be revisited later in free agency:
Harris was a good Raider. He was a hard worker and an overachiever but it’s time for an upgrade.
The Raiders traded for Jones in 2019 from the Buffalo Bills and he caught 34 passes in 26 games with the Raiders. They can easily find an upgrade.
The Raiders traded for McMillan from the Miami Dolphins just before the season started. He ended up making little impact and wasn’t on the field much.
The running back was a late addition and didn’t shine. He showed little reason for the Raiders to bring him back.
Worley was brought back late in the season for his second stint with the Raiders. They may add a veteran cornerback this offseason, but I don’t think Worley should be part of that plan.
The veteran tackle was often injured in 2020. He is the type of player teams look to improve from anyway. Instead, the Raiders need to find a young option at backup tackle.
