Raiders News: Maxx Crosby and Jermaine Eleumunor push Tyrann Mathieu
The Las Vegas Raiders’ slow start to free agency didn’t last long, with them active since last Wednesday. The Raiders have 17 new players in the locker room and two returning players on the offensive line.
Dave Ziegler has enough space to continue creating a competitor. There are free agents worthy of a look at their career background, like Calais Campbell or Stephon Gilmore.
A player has the eye of the players in the Raiders locker room. Maxx Crosby took time out of her Saturday to let Tyrann Mathieu know that a honey badger is similar to silver and black.
Jermaine Eluemunor joined in the fun, tweeting that Mathieu and Trevon Morehrig would combine to form one of the best safety duos in the league.
Mathieu would elevate the defense with his leadership and knowledge of Graham’s high school covers. Graham was the defensive line coach when Steve Spagnuolo was the defensive coordinator in New York. He uses his safeties in a style that accentuates Mathieu’s skills. He would be an excellent candidate for a specialized role.
It would be the final touch of the offseason. The Raiders will have a team ready to face high expectations.
