Jones has a shot at the hall of fame with his 107.5 career sacks. He missed 11 games in 2020 and dealt with Covid-19 in 2021. Still, he found a way to finish the season with 10.5 sacks.
Rock Ya-Sin is ascending player from the Indianapolis Colts who specializes in press-man. He comes from a zone-heavy scheme with a 56% completion rate in coverage.
Raiders decided to join the party and kicked down the door in the process.
