The Las Vegas Raiders have spent big this offseason throughout the roster and have spent at key positions.

In fact, after Kyler Murray’s recent huge deal with the Arizona Cardinals, the Raiders have the second most money commit to their highest paid quarterback, wide receiver and running back in the NFL.

The deals for quarterback Derek Carr, wide receiver Davante Adams and running back Kenyan Drake combine for $$74 million, according to Sharp. Here’s the full list:

It’s just another reminder that Las Vegas is all in and all the financial commitments must result in big winning this season.
