2015 Oakland Raiders Free Agency: An Early Guide to the Market

It was another disappointing year for the Oakland Raiders. The team played better toward the end of the season, but it wasn't enough to make up for the disheartening 0-10 start.

But one of the best parts of sports is that there's always next season. And for the Raiders, the hope is real. The team was better than the final 3-13 record would indicate. Derek Carr, Khalil Mack and Latavius Murray showed real potential, and the team will build around them moving forward.

The biggest issue was the lack of consistent difference-makers on both sides of the ball. Last season, Reggie McKenzie refused to spend big on any one player. But now that the core of the team is starting to come together, it's time for the Raiders as an organization to start making moves that will lead directly to more wins.

And for that to happen, the organization has to be willing to spend its substantial amount of available money on big names.

Here's an early look at Oakland's outlook for the upcoming free-agency period and what the team needs to do to finally return to relevance.
