Escape Candidate: Bryan Edwards – Sports Illustrated Las Vegas Raiders News, Analysis and More


We have reviewed a number of Las Vegas Raiders players who are in a position to have bounce seasons in 2021.

With the season just two weeks away, it’s time to look at the Raider players who could potentially break out this year.

Wide receiver Bryan edwards, like several other Raiders rookies, didn’t have the best chance to contribute last season due to injury.

The former third-round pick played 12 games and had just three starts, totaling 11 catches for 193 yards and a touchdown.

It certainly wasn’t the start of his career that Edwards or the Raiders wanted, but 2021 already seems to hold more promise.

With the recent exit of veteran wide receiver John Brown, Edwards now has the opportunity to be the other main outside receiver against Henry Ruggs III.

He’s had a solid training camp with head coach Jon Gruden and quarterback Derek Carr comparing his appearance to players like Terrell Owens and Davante Adams.

Even in the limited production he had last season, Edwards showed big play potential averaging 17.5 yards per catch.

The opportunity is now there for him to try to maintain that over a full season.

Neither Edwards nor Ruggs may be the Raiders’ No.1 target, tight end Darren Waller still has that distinction but they can be counted on to open the offense on the pitch.

Some might say it’s a gamble with how last season went, but as long as he stays healthy Edwards has the knack to leave his mark on offense.
