5 Moves the Oakland Raiders Should Have Made This Offseason

The Oakland Raiders have had a successful offseason in 2014, but it hasn't been flawless.

The team entered the free-agency period with more than $60 million to spend, and the demand from the fans was high. They expected the team to make a push for any available big names.

However, this was never really a possibility.

The Raiders simply had too many holes to fill, and using up too much of that cap space on just one or two signings was not going to do them any good moving forward. The team needed to be careful when deciding which players to go after and how much to spend.

For the most part, the team made smart signings for the right money, but there were still a few head-scratching decisions. In other cases, the Raiders just didn't do enough to sign a player who would have addressed a major need.

Oakland should have made these signings because not only would they have improved the team overall, but also they fit within the signing model under general manager Reggie McKenzie: good talent at a reasonable price.

Here are five offseason moves the Raiders should have made but didn't.
